Transcript From the desk of: Mark Lacy Wa *Pn9 £Jito My involvement with the Yearbook has taught me that being a student leader is akin to being a university administrator. Many students are not inclined to figure out how they effect the kind of services that are offered to them at a university. Nor are they likely to question what course their money will take once they have paid their tuition and fees. And that ineptness on the part of the student is what most administrators count on. A student who initially takes on a leadership responsibility may be overwhelmed by the matter at hand in nearly any organization without a solid foundation, which is often the case. Highly valuable programs are neglected and many student leaders are not versed in the kind of experience that it takes to rise from entry level student to competent student leadership. The yearbook has, over the years, faced a broad range of these problems. And this year is no exception as the staff has faced an increasingly difficult set of problems. The task would seem clear — under the guidance of a well-qualified student leader, the Editor, would produce the University of Houston's official yearbook. But most students are not aware of the amount of control — and in some cases, the lack of control — that the Editor possesses. The Editor is at a severe disadvantage because the students are not aware of the forces at work, and generally do not want to know. This means that it is possible for The Editor to take on the task of producing the yearbook without sufficient experience. Even as the problems the yearbook organization faces are recognized, they continue to plague the organization year after year. Many of those forces at work, being in administrative hands, would logically guide the yearbook in a positive direction. However, they are often ineffective, perhaps even counteractive. The Journalism Department has long held a laissez-faire attitude towards the yearbook and the Student Publications Committee, which is a body that enacts policies and elects editors and has had limited authority. The department has historically neglected the committee by way of ignorance. Most who comprise these bodies take the same attitude that students take — that it is far too complicated, far too time consuming and better left to the judgement of administrators. 322 University of Houston
