Transcript EIGHT IS ENOUGH IN STUDENT ASSOCIATION 5/4 President Pat Powers With more women in top positions than ever before, eight out of seventeen, UH Student Association reorganized and rallied its forces to become more effective than in recent years. Under the direction of 1978-79 President Pat Powers, SA enjoyed several noteworthy accomplishments this past year, perhaps the most important being the establishment of the Residence Halls Policy Board (RHPB). Both SA members and residents of the dorms agreed that some sort of organization was needed to have voice in policies and procedures of the residence halls, but the composition of that organization lead to much controversy the very first week of the fall semester. SA members thought the most effective organization of the board would be nine SA-appointed student members. But dorm residents had a different idea, pulling for an 11-member board of all dorm residents. After much debate, the Senate approved an amendment of the original bill in early October. The amendment called for five SA-appointed members and four additional members to be elected by the dorm residents. The dorm residents, on the other hand, were lobbying for a compromise: eight dorm-elected members, and three SA- appointed members. Central Campus Chancellor Barry Munitz saying he "would not accept a board more than one half of whose membership was approved by SA," revised the bill. The RHPB membership was to be five SA-appointed members and five dorm-elected members. The group of ten went right to work providing student input on residence halls policies and procedures. Another notable accomplishment of SA during the past year was the establishment of the Bookstore Committee. Previously all revenues from UH Bookstore were recycled back into the facility, with no student control on prices. The formation of the Bookstore Committee was an attempt to control these prices and to better meet the needs of students. The bookstore now accepts Master Charge and VISA credit cards as a result of the newly established committee. One of the most interesting and controversial subjects on campus this year was SA's financial backing of a 24- page addendum to the Houstonian. SA voted in September to fund the $3,203 for printing the addendum with the stipulation that each issue be sold at $1 to reimburse SA. Publication of the addendum, an essay of nude photography by UH art photography instructor George Krause, was halted when Taylor Publishing Co., '78 Houstonian printer, refused to print the nude photographs. Other SA accomplishments include the passing of 59 bills this year and financial aid given to numerous campus organizations ranging from UH Coalition Against Investments in South Africa to the men's volleyball team. SA also managed to keep the library open during finals week, to reopen the Women's Affairs Division, and to reorganize the Student Publications Committee and the Academic Support Services. The Senate also passed four major academic proposals: College Council, Course Description, Course Summary and Teacher Evaluation. With the outgoing of an influential, accomplishing set of leaders in April and the incoming of a new administration, '79-'80 SA President Ed Watt plans to make SA an even stronger voice at UH. Watt feels SA should be more efficient in providing student input to all committees on campus to provide this input effectively, Watt has reorganized the Senate and the Executive Branch of SA. The reorganizations will allow the Senate to better focus on issues "that have long been forgotten" such as Tutorial Center, parking improvement and lighting facilities at the tennis courts. Watt sees UH now as having a large structure of campus governance committees which make policy affecting all areas of campus. "Because there are now students on virtually all UH committees," Watt says, "one of SA's most important functions in the coming years will be to assure that the students' voices are heard." — Veronica Holub Sheila 5.
