UTAH VALLEY STATE COLLEGE mi 1 TWW JJjjJuJJllJ 11 JJlUnilJta) J vU WiLJ EL BUEN PANO EN ELARCASE VENDE I VOLUME 32 ISSUE 36 MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2003 By Collin Lucke VlMrits Staff Briant Farnsworth, Dean of Education at Utah Valley State College, said the current freeze on the approval of new programs in the nine colleges and universities in Utah will have little effect on the two-year-old Secondary Education Program. "We were fortunate to have eight content areas approved before the moratorium went into effect,' said Farnsworth. "We would like to add other emphases but feel that the program will continue to grow and gain strength even if we have to wait for a period for the moratorium to be lifted." 'in the future we would like to add Physical Education, Community Health, Languages-particularly Spanish, Music, and Applied Technology to name a few," add Linda Benson, Chair of the Department of Education. The program approval freeze, or moratorium on new programs, was placed by the Utah State Board of Regents last summer, "In order to deal with current fiscal challenges and be prepared for an uncertain financial future," according to a July 1, 2002 memorandum to the Board of Regents by Commissioner Cecelia H. Foxley. However, exceptions to the moratorium have been made. According to the minutes of the March 14, 2003 meeting of the Board of Regents, found on the board's web site, the Board of Regents approved the addition of a Bachelor of Applied Technology Degree to be added at UVSC and Weber State University. At the same meeting the "Freeze" continued on P9. 3 ' Wm m f j i .

When the Service Learning Center was established two years ago, it offered credit through service learning classes. The center administrators saw a need for students to earn these credits, but they also wanted students to be honored at graduation if they completed a number of requirements.

This phrase takes on a whole new meaning when seen from the perspective of the organization called Campus Compact. Campus Compact is anation-wide program promoting service learning in higher education. Utah is currently leading the nation in Service Learning, with support from 100 percent of its colleges and universities. "There is no question that our state is a strong example and leader to the nation in service learning. Even though we don't have as many universities and colleges as other states, we show them how strongly we are committed by our state's complete participation," said Linda Dunn, the state campus compact director. Utah's Campus Compact theme is "Get a Life", based on the quote by Winston Churchill, "We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give". Student service coordinators, and student government are expected to take this theme back to their schools and create projects from it. "This campaign reminds students to get involved in something that is bigger than themselves. Its nice to 'get', but now it is their turn to give back," Dunn said.

Barbara and Daren Jensen had been convinced that their son had no cancer cells in his body after having a tumor removed from his mouth that later tested positive for Ewing's sarcoma. The parents don't want him to get chemotherapy, as his doctors have advised, because they think the treatment will sterilize Parker and stunt his growth. Their refusal led a Utah judge to order the treatment and prompted the Jensens to flee the state last month. They were charged with kidnapping. Thursday's news conference started with Parker, who stood in front of his parents before a bank of microphones, telling reporters "they didn't find any cancer at all" -a reference to his recent testing with a Boise, Idaho, oncologist. "As the father of this family, I tell Utah to leave us alone." Daren Jensen sai.
