Transcript We're Not Gonna Take It Lawrence Wolf, Dean of the College of Technology, spoke at the rally, making the analogy that it was so well organized, no UH administrators could have been involved. Photo by Michael Williams. Photos above by Darrell Hutto and Michael Williams. About 250 chanting demonstrators gathered in Cullen Plaza to protest the UH Budget Advisory Council's proposed elimination of the College of Technology and the Department of Human Development and Consumer Sciences. Many students carried signs reading "We're mad as hell" and "Who's next?" while shouting "Where's Van Horn?" and "Hell no, we won't go," between speeches given by faculty, alumni and students. Some students' children were also carrying signs. Glenda Burger's husband is a technology student. Burger said she brought her children to the rally to protest what she called "sheer stupidity." "The sign says it all. These programs aren't glamorous; that's why they're being hit. If they want to cut something, cut football," she said. "No academic departments should be cut." The council, apppointed by President Richard Van Horn to evaluate the University's financial status and recommend changes, released a preliminary report in early February recommending the elimination of certain programs and cutbacks in others. The 24-member council is comprised of non-voting administrators, faculty and two students, and will submit a final recommendation to Van Horn after receiving feedback from faculty and students. Technology Dean Lawrence Wolf criticized the council's structure and process, citing its lack of technology representation and its failure to thoroughly research the program. "The decision was based on some people's elitist notion of a university, not quality or research," he said. Comparing the rally's organizers to UH administrators, Wolf said, "This rally was so effectively organized I know no UH administrator could have been involved." Amid students' cheers, Wolf praised the 1,500-member technology school's academic accomplishments and cited its national reputation as a leader in the field. UH alumnus and Texas A&M engineering technology professor Bill Grubbs agreed, saying UH technology faculty were essential in initiating advancements in the field, including the establishment of a guideline for technology schools and a professional journal. 176
