In an effort to encourage the Mr
ing of more black faculty, the Uni-
versity has given more than
$500,000 in the last two years to
depanments for minority profes-
sors‘ first-year salaries.

Since the special fund in the bud-
get of the UK Office of the Presi-
dent was established in 1988-89,
$515,000 has been spent on the in-
centive program, said Mary Burg,
assistant to the chancellor for the
Lexington Campus. Around
$200,000 has been set aside for
new minority faculty’s first-year
salaries for next year, said Joan
McCauley, assistant vice president

In an effort to combat low mi-

The program is just one of many
examples of the concerted initia-

There are 97 black students in
UK‘s graduate program out of a to-

Nationwide, blacks account for 6
percent of the total graduate school

Although UK’s figure is consid—

increase over fall 1989 enrollment.

Shaw said that Creason could

He said one of Hussein‘s prob-

The following candidates for Student Government Association Senate
submitted 50-word statements on why they wanted to be elected an
SGA senator to the SGA office. Here is a reprint of their statements.





Amy Adams

Student Government Association
is an organization that is meant to
effectively represent the student
body. I feel that it is important to
get involved and make a difference
and a strong mark in something you
believe strongly in. My ticket can
provide a fresh approach to the is-
sues penaining to the student body,
and in return help lead SGA in a
new direction.

Amy Adams is a candidate for
senator at large.


Through my past and present
leadership positions in the organiza-
tions I am involved with, I feel I
have gained considerable knowl-
edge of the needs of the university
and its students. With this experi-
ence I will help further the needs of
the individual students. As a ticket
of Ramanathan. Pepper, Bates, Nor~
ton and Vandiver, we have 12 com-
bined years of college experience,
which will provide a new direction
for Student Government.

Jeremy Bates is a candidate for
senator at large.


I am seeking the position of Col—
lege of Agriculture senator to pro-
vide a strong voice in campus issues

college and the University.

College of Agriculture‘s prosperity
1 will strive to acquire a more prom-
inent place for the college in the
University of community.

Richard Chalfant is a candidate
for College of Agriculture senator.


As Lexington Community Col-
lege senator candidate, I would like
to represent all student alike.

Some of my concems are With
finding, safe, fair parking, monitor—
ing the new mandatory student

to make a drug-free campus.

I will always be available to stu~
dent concerns. “Equal representa-
tion" for all students is and will al-
ways remain my first priority.

Duane D. Crowe is a candidate
for Lexington Community College


The College of Engineering was
founded many years ago on the
principle of advancing technology
and academic achievement.

Not only the structure of this col-
lege changed, but also its commit-
ment. A commitment that will con-~
tinue to grow in a new direction. As
a senator, I will be responsive to-
wards this development and work
for progress and change.

needs of students in the College of
Education. it is my goal to provide

in the University community as

My intention is to work closely
with education students and the ad-
ministration of the college to im-
prove communications between the
two in hopes of establishing a solid
relationship and let their concerns
be my concerns.

I offer three years of experience,
my dedication to the students and
my sincere interest in being a sound
voice for the students.

As College of Education senator I
will be diligent and responsive to
student needs.

Derby Newman is a candidate for
College ofEducation senator.


Somewhere along the line of
SGA, senators have forgotten that
they represent the students.

This is why I want to become a
voice for the College of Arts & Sci-
ences in the Student Government
Association Senate, as well as the
University Senate and be as accom-
modating as possible to their wants
and needs.

Kevin Park is a candidate for
College ofArts & Sciences senator.


As a freshman senator, I take a
keen interest in student concems. I
understand the problems associated
with class registration and will work
to develop a program that would en-
able students to register by phone
with direct access to the computers.
This is one reason why the ticket of
Cranston, Porter, Batsel, Jaeger and
Elhenicky means “experience and
diversity in action."

Jill Cranston is a candidate for
Senator at Large.


I have decided to run for College
of Business & Economics senator
for a number of reasons. but, main-
ly, to get involved. I feel that the
best way I can get involved, not
only in SGA but also with faculty
and administration, is by running
for this office.

James Stover is a candidate for
College of Business & Economics


It is said that there is strength in
numbers. I believe that the same ap-
plies to experience. As a student for
the past four years, I have seen
many problems arise and l have my
own ideas for their solution. Now is
the time for the “Strong" choice.

Stephen L. Strong is a candidate
for College of Communication sena-


Being a transfer student to the
University, I bring with me a vast
assortment of ideas. At my school I
was active in student government
and bring that experience with me
to help create new and fresh ideas at
UK. One goal I have is to help bet-
ter integrate personal computers in
the communication curriculum. If
chosen, I will try to better represent
the College of Communications in
the UK community.

Sean M. Sympson is a candidate
for College of Communications sen-


The College of Fine Ans needs a
strong representative to voice their
opinions to the administration, fa-
culty and Student Senate. To be a
representative of this group. indeed,
takes a great deal of responsibility.
Due to past leadership responsibili-
ties, I feel, with enthusiasm and an
open mind, I am the person that can
meet these needs.

(‘andy Smith is a candidate for
College of Fine Arts senator.

Jay In gle

All college senators not only
serve on the student senate, but also
on the University Senate as the only
student voice in this faculty domi-
nated body.

I would like to take students' ide-
as to both of these governing bodies
and make sure that UK remains an
institution for students.

Jay Ingle is a candidate for Col-
lege of Arts & Sciences senator.

Anne Jae ger

My experience as a Special Edu—
cation major and my involvement in
SCEC, SGA Handicapped Concerns

buildings more accessible. This is

Anne Jaeger is a candidate for
Senator at Large.

Stephen Keller

I desire the position of Senator at
Large because I have the ability to
create positive changes in the lives
of students in the University com-
munity. An admirable senator is one
who is sensitive to all viewpoints
from all students; thus having a
keen student awareness. From my
involvement with student govem-
ment since last August, I have de-
veloped Such an awareness. Re-
member, with Stephen Keller as
your senator, you will have no emp-
ty promises.

Stephen C. Keller II is a candi-
date for Senator at Large.


The office of UK Student Gov-
ernment Association senator is one
of great responsibility. I am seeking
the office of SGA senator because I
am responsible and I want to make
some good changes happen in the
UK SGA. When elected I plan to
work toward reaching out to the stu-
dents to let them know SGA is here
for them.

David McDowell is a candidate
for Senator at Large.


Dedication to students is the best
quality a senator can have. Working
to improve the things that count to
you! Two projects I plan to pursue
are the extension of student billings
hours and terminals during the first
three weeks of school, and to regain
the students privilege to receive le-
gitimate excuses for health care.
These are just two more reasons
why Cranston, Porter, Batsel, Jeager

Davenport hard worker

I would like to ask the student
body to consider Lea Ann Daven-
port and her running mates when
going to the polls this week.

After just two years at UK. Dav-
enport has complied one of the most
impressive resumes on campus.

She has spent two years repre-
senting her fellow students as a sen-
ator and has served on four commit-
tees. chairing one of them.
Davenport has also been very active
with her social sorority.

She has served on numerous com.
mittees and has been rewarded by
her peers for her efforts.

In addition to her extra-curricular
activities, Davenport has been able
to compile an exceptional scholastic
record that few students can match.

Bit I am not suggesting that you
vote for Davenport strictly on her
past performance.

Rather I suggest that you vote for
her strong work ethic, her openness
to new ideas and opinions and her
dedication to the student body and
the campus.

Students should be a part of the Crosbie—Sparks administration


By Scott Damron


“Would you buy it again?" is a
question often asked of consumers.

As a student. would you buy it
again? What I mean by “it” is the
University of Kentucky — your ed-
ucation, social involvement, living
conditions, and experiences.

The reason I pose this question is
that students are consumers of the
University of Kentucky, and within
the answer to this inquiry lies great-
er truths which need be uncovered.

Through the answer we could be—
gin to decipher areas of improve-
ment for the University and discov—
er whether the alumni who leave
our halls are loyal alumni, sensitive

By Jay Ingle


I believe, as much as anyone, in a
fair and positive campaign for Stu-
dent Government Association elec-
tions, but one presidential ticket has
overstepped the bounds of honesty
and integrity in its campaign.

I cannot imagine being more of-
fended by a student campaign’s bla—
tant misrepresentation and hypocri-
sy after watching Scott Crosbie and
Keith Sparks vie for the top two
SGA offices.

The two are running a very nega-
tive campaign, stressing an anti-
establishment approach. Their cam-
paign seems to be a campaign
against SGA President Sean Loh-
man, rather than one that proves
that they are more qualified candi-
dates than Christa Collins, Keith

Clark or Byl Hensley.

Clark and Sparks ask students to
look at what SGA has done over the
last two years, a question which re-
lates in no direct way to any of the

Collins and Clark have both
served as SGA senators, but neither
has had the opportunity or position
to influence the organization in a
role such as president. Crosbie and
Sparks have merely used the fad of
criticizing Lohman as a tool for
popularity. These two need to step
back and realize who their competi-
tion really is.

With this strong anti-SGA ap-
proach, it seems quite odd that it
has been vehemently argued that
Keith Sparks has been influential as

He also claims to have worked
