Now, with old regulations surfacing to manage the locations where signs are allowed, organizations will ultimately be forced to relocate signs leaving some frustrated by this policy. Policy governing banners hung on campus makes amends Britnee Nguyen P'jtk efliior In the past few weeks, UVSC student council and other campus organizations experienced frustration at having their banners taken down in certain areas on campus with no notice and no explanation. In one situation, the Spirit Committee had their banner taken down in the Shurian Family Activity Center that advertised for a men's basketball game. "It wasn't just your average butcher paper poster... it took about 2 man hours to make it," said Trevor Tooke, chair of the Spirit Committee. Tooke said he thought his committee had always complied with the campus signage policy that states which locations signs are allowed in, so to have his posters thrown away without explanation didn't feel fair. According to Kris Coles, student body president, it was assumed that banners were taken down because there was a misunderstanding of what the signage policy actually said. Rumors were going through student council that the current policy was from the 1980s and was supposedly in the process of a revision that had yet to be finalized. According to the Policy Office, the current signage policy has actually been in effect since April 5, 2001 and has been under revision since Nov. 29, 2007. This current policy states that the only places in which banners are allowed are the Science Building Atrium on the stair railing from the first to third floor, the PE concourse near the racquetball courts, and the Auto Trades railing at the west end of the third level concourse. . The exception is the Sorenson Student Cen ter, where banners have to be cleared through the director of that facility. The reason student council didn't realize UVSC had a recent signage policy was that this policy was never heavily enforced. Also, the Campus Space Committee had made exceptions since 2001, allowing signs on pillars and marked windows on campus. This misunderstanding of the policy led the Campus Space Committee to hold a meeting on Jan. 24 regarding the issue. At the meeting, it was revealed why banners had been taken down with no apparent notice. "The Space Committee came to the realization in October 2007 that things had gotten so bad in terms of hallway signage that something needed to be done. See POSTER A4 What s in a name? UVSC professor titles' meanings revealed Jennie Nicholls Assistant News editor Titles for the teaching faculty at UVSC range from adjunct to professor, with many others in between. How faculty members get these titles and the qualifications for them are widely unknown to students. But these titles do make a difference for students. UVSC's teaching faculty consists of six different types of teachers. Starting with adjunct, these teachers work part-time, usually temporarily, without having responsibilities besides teaching classes. Lecturers, who are similar to adjunct faculty, are full-time at UVSC on a one-year contract, which can get renewed on a year-by-year basis. Like adjunct faculty, lecturers lack obligations outside of classes. The next bracket of faculty fit into the tenure plan. "The tenure track is an ongoing commitment, a promise of employment," said Bruce Parker of Faculty Affairs.Tenure starts with faculty members being instructors. Instructors are faculty who do not have doctorate degrees or doctoral equivalents in their field of study, but who meet all other credentials.One step up from instructor is assistant professor. This is the entry point for most professors, says Parker. Assistant professors have a doctorate degree or the equivalent, such as a Master of Arts. Associate professors make up the next level of tenure. These teachers have served for six years and have "proven themselves," said Parker.

Touchstones is asking students writers of short stories, flash fiction, creative non-fiction, one act plays, and poetry - all between 1500 to 2000 words or less - to be submit for possible publication. Touchstones is not limited to creative writing pieces though; it also encourages art students to submit ail pieces, photography and graphic art designs. "A benefit to having your work published in a smaller journal is, first of all, it can give you confidence in the future, but, also, it's a part of your portfolio - any submission can only bulk up your portfolio, and give you more heft when you go to apply for graduate school or jobs in the field," Editor in chief Amber Watson said.
