See CAMPUS BRIEFLY, Page 4 New diversity policy formed at UVSC Amber Pace Senior News Editor As an institution of education, UVSC is now actively implementing the importance of diversity on campus. The sharing of un-disruptive diverse ideas, pursuit of occupational goals and other such opportunities are now more welcome at UVSC. The Board of Trustees recently discussed the adoption of a college diversity statement. This statement will be given to all new faculty and is available on the Campus Vax Computer System. All educators will have access to the policy. Last fall Vice President of Student Life, Ryan Thomas, recognized the importance Regents to elect new chairperson Dan Yorgason Staff Writer Steven E. Snow, Chairman of the Utah State Board of Regents, is retiring so he can serve an LDS Church mission. According to Patricia Crane, media representative for the Board of Regents, his last meeting with the Board of Regents will be on May 1, when the Regents will elect a new chairperson. The duties of the chairperson include leading the members of the Board in the direction their decisions may take. He or she also coordinates the efforts of the Regents. Although all the Regents don't always agree on issues, the Chairperson's opinions usually carry a weighty amount of consideration. "He can be articulately aggressive without ever losing his cool," said Paul Rogers, a member of the Board of Regents. "He had a high degree of advocacy but could remain non-offensive, which helps to get issues resolved."When asked what he thought Mr. Snow believed in, Rogers replied that Snow is "an excellent advocate for community colleges, which UVSC is," and also that he is "a strong advocate of student input." He was interested in the smaller institutions and the needs of their students. "He had an open mind and was willing to be persuaded, as long as there was evi- See CHAIRPERSON, Page 4 of equal opportunity at UVSC and wrote the main ideas contained in the newly adopted diversity statement. "American colleges and universities are beginning to recognize people of color and their needs," said Chuck Foster, career guidance minority counselor. Thomas, along with the Minority Counsel Office, worked together the last few months to originate the final policy. "We want students of color to have every opportunity at advantages offered at UVSC," said Foster. The Diversity Statement contains five main points. First, each individual has inherent worth. Second, each individual should have access to educational development commensurate with hisher ability to benefit. Third, each individual should have an opportunity to pursue a broad range of educational, occupational, social and cultural experiences that reflect the value of diversity. Fourth, diversity can serve to broaden our community perspectives and deepen our community understanding. And fifth, UVSC encourages academic debate and sharing of diverse ideas; however, expressions of differences in ideology or opinion on campus should comply with college procedures and should neither cause harm to other individuals nor disrupt the educational activities of the Institution. "The adoption of this diversity statement is a reflection of our commitment to equality," Foster said. Pow-wow boasts tradition Photo by Ron RalstonThe College Times Native American dancers representing several tribes from the Inter-mountain West performed traditional dances in front of a large audience in the UVSC Activity Center Thursday night, March 31 . Groups from Nevada, Idaho, Arizona and Colorado were invited. Other traditions such as fry bread and Navajo Tacos added authenticity to the evening. Sprinkling system un-safe to drink Kevin Larson Staff Writer Unknown to the majority of UVSC students, the sprinklers we all jump around in and often drink from may be less pure than we have so innocently thought. Perhaps you have noticed the signs that warn students and fun-seekers alike away from playing and ingesting the water. As one student points out, "The sign says 'don't drink the water,' so I don't drink it." If only all were such pillars of obedience. These signs, although often ignored, carry good advice. The water is tainted alright-not with any super-unenvironmental chemical, but with fertilizer. The UVSC Director of Grounds, Jack Boswell, in a meeting with The College Times, stated, "You could, if you wanted, drink 50 gallons of the stuff. Why, you could drink pond water, and it would give you the craps; this stuff is not that bad. It is mixed in with the water at 35 parts per million. That's not a lot." The fertilizer is put into what is called a chemigator, a device that adds the chemicals to the water in the right amounts. After the water enters the chemigator it follows the pipeline to an enormous pump. The pump is located in an underground room on See SPRINKLERS, Page 9 INDIA INK ACTUALLY COMES FROM CHINA.
