Transcript Conceding to requests and demonstrations by the HSAB, a ramp is built at the E. Cullen Building for those needing a wheelchair. Photo by Richard Smidt. With righteous anger, the Veteran's Club and Handicapped Student Advisory Board protest proposed cuts in students service fees that will affect their organizations and members. Photo by Michael Williams. SPB VIDEO COMMITTEE Building Success Handicapped Student Advisory Board, as the name implies, is formed by handicapped students and is one of their best means to voice concerns to the administration. In a crowd of 30,000 students, a few hundred could remain unnoticed, but this group is determined not to let that happen. The HSAB was formed so that students could get together and discuss events. HSAB provides a means through which issues concerning handicapped students are communicated to students, faculty, and administration. When merely voicing their needs proves fruitless, the HSAB has formally protested to get rulings in their favor. Headed by President Rodger Peters, Vice-President Lori James, and Secretary Linda Bos- chian, the HSAB has been very active, and plans to continue in the future. They worked with the M. D. Anderson Library to plan a new entrance gate for wheelchair users. They also worked to have a new West Entrance ramp in the E. Cullen Building. In the spring semester, HSAB proposed to dorm officials that a new and more efficient lock system be used in handicapped students' rooms. One other major issue that HSAB worked on is protesting budget cuts in student services. President Van Horn proposed that $500,000 in state funding for the Career Planning and Placement Center and the Community impr Center be used to fund faculty raises, and that the athletic department receive $2 million from student service fees in the 1988- 89 fiscal year. At that meeting, Paul Moore, Vice-President of Student Affairs, proposed that handicapped student services receive 66% less than this year. On hearing this, angry students from HSAB gathered outside President Van Horn's office to stage a week-long vigil to protest cuts in their programs. "If we sit idly by and let things happen the way the Board of Regents wants them to, we aren't going to accomplish anything," said Peters. "We have to speak out and make other students understand that they are involved, too, it affects all of us." With constant efforts applied toward their long-term goal of improving the living and studying conditions for handicapped students, the HSAB is confident of success. These small triumphs inspire the HSAB onward. — Sunil Thakkar "We have to speak out and make other students understand that they are involved too, it affects all of us."
