Transcript i^nfd Ml The University of Houston has suffered with a negative image for many years. Provost John Ivancevich says it is time for that to change. Ivancevich has spent 22 years at the University of Houston, climbing the administrative ladder. While his duties include meeting with different groups and individuals, discussing academic programs and issues, and going to at least eight or nine meetings a day, Ivancevich has given his heart to the university and is now ready for some changes to take place. According to Ivancevich, the university is lost in a timid, imageless situation, and he blames everyone: the faculty, the staff, and the students. "I get around this campus," he says. "For some unknown reason, the university has accepted an inferiority complex. It's intolerable! This is a project for the administration, the faculty and students. This university is a jewel of an urban university. Students . . .everyone needs to get more involved. We can't let people off the hook. We have to have pride." Perhaps the problems arise in that the university is understaffed and has undergone many changes in the recent years. After President James Pickering left UH, the students were left without a president to "run" the university. To this day, many still don't have a clue as to who the president of UH is. But the students do know that the administration has had many setbacks. However, Ivancevich says students should attempt to become a part of the university to make the university have a bigger and brighter future. "There is a lot of apathy. Students need to know their university. What is the mission? What are the goals? Students have a role to play. There is no reason that University of Houston students can't be like those of Notre Dame, who live, breathe and talk Notre Dame," he says. Ivancevich is so concerned with the current state of indifference at the University of Houston, that he is taking time out of his busy schedule to be a rhetorical cheerleader for the university.
