Transcript Some of the participants brought their children to symbolize the importance of the departments facing elemination to their future. Photo by Darrell Hutto. Other photos by Michael Williams. "UH provides leadership. Graduates play critical roles in the industry," he said. Don Hartsell, president of manufacturing company Airdex Inc., and graduate of the UH Law School, said he was "amazed" at the council's suggestion. "They didn't evaluate the mission of the university or apparently think about the impact of the local community," he said. Harsell read a letter he said he would send to community leaders and the Board of Regents which said "a void would be created" by the college's removal and the Engineering school "cannot provide what technology does." HDCS student leaders and department chair Vincent He- garty questioned one of the council's criteria for targeting the "quality of faculty and students" of certain departments. Veronica Kahanek, HDCS honor society president, said many, of the program's graduates work extensively in the Medical Center, an activity the council's report states it wants UH to continue. "I consider it a personal insult for the council to consider us less than top quality," she said. Hegarty also criticized the council's proposal to save money by eliminating a 300-member academic program with a budget of only $84,000. "Cornell, the University of Illinois and other major universities have this program. If it's good enough for them, it's good enough for UJH1," Hegarty said. HDCS student Tracy Morris said the department may have been targeted because 88 percent of its students are female. "This recommendation is a byproduct of the administration's attitude," she said. Rally organizer and Technology student leader Curtis Herman said the rest of the campus should take note. "Just think what we could do if we got serious about the situ - ation," he said. Herman said future action by technology students will depend on the UH administration's response. Kahanek said HDCS students will concentrate on recruiting new students and increasing campus and outside awareness of the program. She said the rally should prove that "we'll put up a good fight." Vice President of Academic Affairs A. Benton Cocan- ougher, a non-voting council member, said the council welcomes and anticipates student feedback such as that provided by the rally. — Susan Borreson 177
