Group: UK program has 'non-diverse perspective'

By Allie Gag


Six UK faculty members were sin-
gled out on a pamphlet that was distrib~
uted to legislative officials last week
during the special session on pension
reform in Frankfort.

The Family Foundation, a conserv-
ative family-oriented group based out
of Lexington. issued 130 handouts con-
taining the names. pictures, biographies
and salaries of six UK faculty mem-
bers. a majority of whom are associated
with the Gender'and Women‘s Studies

Kent Orstrander. the Family Foun-

dation executive director. said the pur»
pose of the handouts was to infonn leg-
islators about the expenditures of mon-
ey. with emphasis on the women‘s stud-
ies department. which had a very non-
diverse perspective.

“We‘re not focusing on the profes-
sors as individuals. but simply using
what was on the (UK) Web site."
Orstrander said. "We‘re raising the
question. ‘Is this where you want to pri-
oritize your tax and tuition dollars."

UK President Lee Todd defended
the program‘s funding in a statement
last Thursday.

”Free and open academic inquiry is

at the very heart of what institutions of

higher learning are supposed to do -
whether it‘s researching cures to
Parkinson‘s and lung cancer disease or
asking questions about subjects that
some may find uncomfortable in a di-
verse society." Todd said in the state—
ment. "We shouldn't attempt to regulate
such inquiry."

The Family Foundation called UK‘s
funding of the gender and women‘s
studies program "special interest politi-
cal activism." and challenged the de-
partment to produce a faculty member
who is supportive of the “traditional

school continues to completely ignore
the wishes of the people it serves."

The faculty members whose pro-
files were published in the handouts
had varying reactions to the complaint.
Ellen Riggle. associate director of the
(tender and Women‘s Studies Program.
said she did not think the handouts
were personal attacks on either herself
or her colleagues. but an attack on the
university community at large.

“This is an attack on education in

Montell and Vice President

how SG‘s yearly budget will be
spent including committing

“Last year it was 370.000 and
