With oM bold gesture. DU wil enter the mainstream of university gostranance this tall The University, like a growing number of institutions, is turning e a provost to prossde con-tin aits in academic and budgetary planning: The provost, usually defined as the chief academic officer of an msMutiofl. nil he responsible for the coordination of academics and the budget as well as student allairs, admissions and financial aid. Final budgetary authority will remain with the chancellor. The transition to a provost has been under consideration for several scan, but was delayed due to the reorganisation of the UnivtTsity. 'Attempting something lie this donng the reorganisation would have been one change too nuns' Chancellor Dwight Smith said. The addition of a provost b etpected to help DU sharpen its coespetkne edge for the 21st Century '.Assurant we are successful in connecting budgeting uh academic planning, we will be an mstitnbon that hat much less a general broad image.' Smith said We will be more shatply focused and distinctive.' Must faculty raembrn hope their say in the future of the Univmity win increase. 'Wha: we hope for from it b that academx- concerns are considered in every mayor decision the University makes.' Robert Richardson, professor of English and a member of the Provost Selection Committee, said "The faculty are concerned that they be fuBy in charge of educational policy, as they are at all good schools.' The arrival of a provost should ebrainate much of the 'corporate' atmosphere of DU. Richardson said 'Education isn't a business. Were not just putting out a product Great schools just don't talk like dial' The trend among private schools toward provost governance began in the 1960s. due in pan to the changing duties of university presidents Only AJ percent of the runout schools ate governed by a provost, but it is an impressive list Noethwesiern.

Tnisetsities are becoming cotnplei iastitubons Soch a senior academic prison allows for a vital division of duties Robert Goheen. president of Princeton when a provost wav adopted there, agreed "The job of the president had developed too many aspects foe one person to handle. There was a need for a deputy who could share the load' 0»er the years, the posksoc has become invaluable. Bockndl University, a private msauboc very similar to DU. will return to a provost this fall after an unsuccessful trial period on a different system. "The provost model was a good thing to follow It identified to the faculty very death who was the sensor officer for academe affairs. There was no ambcguity.' said William W'eist. secretary of BoctndL who has been with the unnrrsity for 2$ you The president in many small colleges assumes a tremendous toad. When the faculty have soeseooe identified as number two. they an forgne the president kb inability to get tmo academx affairs. Went usd They know bn representative has authority and dom especially on thorny issues." .At the heart of any structural change in the University is the welfare of the studrot body, although stedrots may not be aware of the difference. The changes immediately apparent to students wd] be the evolving academic foots of the school and the total feeling of well-being among faculty and staff.

How will they continue to change?” "I don't think they (women) hare changed considerably much in the past four yean ... except for the ones who're been eating dorm food for that time. I think they will continue to change to be more assertire in the workplace." — Rick Laue, Senior “Men change a lot in their four years at college. Mostly around their junior year they start to get very serious and suddenly take on a direction." — Trish Wheeler, Senior “You can really see a change in college boys from their freshman to their senior year. As they go along they slow down and start to date one person, that b if they make it that far! As far as how men in general have changed,... let’s face it, we’re in a Yuppie generation and they’re out for money. There will probably be a counterrevolution to that but DU will always be business oriented in order suceed as a university though the facade may change." — Lisa Cbenoweth. Senior “Women change more gradually, as graduation approaches they still have more options as far as getting a job or getting married. Men still don't have the opportunity to take time off the way women do.” — Trish Wheeler, Senior “As opposed to men. most women come in with a basic idea and steer through to the end ... they also narrow their choices, they’re better about staying with a particular major. Women don’t change as much as men. men do a lot of growing up in those four years. .As for how women are changing in general. I think there are many more women in masters programs, and going into more technical and business-oriented fields." — lisa Chenoweth. Senior "I think they are more sensitive to the competition from women.” - Chancellor Dwight Smith “Orerall, I think men are becoming more considerate of the fairer sex." - Rick Laue. Senior "I think people are starting to become a little less conscious of the differences between the sexes, maybe the feminists are winning out. I see just as many of my women friends going out for jobs and getting them as ray men friends. Hopefully that will continue and things will become completely equal especially as far as pay goes. I think men are taking the change really well, I don’t see them being bitter about competing with women for the same jobs. I don’t see men saying that there is something wrong with that, but accepting women's qualifications. I disagree with anything involving demographics, its a nice idea ... but I think the job should always go to the most qualified person, male or female. I don’t think that women should get advancements or payments simply because they're women, in the same way I don’t believe men should. But there may be instances where a woman is a better choice for the job just as there may be instances where a man is a better choice for a particular job."1 Ghosts "Experience a the child of thought. and though is tic child of action.

This year, it is an honor for the Kpmisbok to continue that tradition by presenting the annual Pioneer Awards to individuals whose dedication to our University and its students is bevond measure. Nominations came from all areas of the campus, and the 14 winners selected by committee represent the University's finest. While their personal goals and ideals differ, they are bound by their visions of a better DU. Their work toward that goal does not make them unique. The creativity, passion and spirit with which they pursue this vision does. Each of the 14 has made a difference. The 1930 Kynmsbok urged its winners. “Go forth; greater battles are yet to be won." We would urge the same. The battles they have fought at Dl' may seem small in comparison to the battles of life. But the fight our Pioneers have given shows us what is best in ourselves.
