Do corporations have the right to control curriculum?
By Chris Alessi According to a Boston investment firm, some colleges and universities across the nation I may be weighting their course offerings toward math and science in order to attract larger corporate contributions. "For many universities and colleges, 'selling their programs to corporations and other philanthropic agencies and individuals is key to economic viability,"\says the F r a n k l i n Research and Development Corporation study. | 0 Many schools are becoming progressively? dependent on support from the private-sector because aid given to colleges from federal and state governments is decreasing. "For the past two tojftnree years, there has been several articles written discussing the need to tie academic institutions into ^corporate institutions/' according to Academic Dean Dr. David Palmer. I "This is due to the value of directly producing people who will go into jobs in those institutions," adds Palmer. There may be a problem with this though, "if an institution gets too closely tied in, then subtley and then more directly later on, you may find yourself WuTfcypQhslve tonhe direct demands of the'corporations/* Problems such as this, do not arise untilfthese corporations begin to say what courses and institution should have. "While this may be allowable to some extent, the fear and underlying question is 'how far do we go?' It may get to a point where the corporations I are ^giving *.the universities! an ultimatum: either you teach this sequence of courses, or we, the corporation, won't give you the money," said Palmer. 3 "It is when an academic institution becomes closely tied with an outside source, that one must be very weary about being dictated to," he added. K The integrity of any university must always be maintained. If the demands by any outside source become too great, and the university begins to fall to these demands, it is here.that authority shifts Into the wrong hands." Palmer feels ithat Mercyhurst College has not had to deal with this situation. "We don't have strong enough ties with corporations so that we have ever felt that force of dictating the curriculum." The problem seems to be more evident at larger institutions. These institutions may prove to have a distinct tie in with another corporation. "At these* institutions, money for research is directly ear-marked for particular departments that have a direct interest with research being performed at a ^corporation." Palmer said. "Anytime the normal incoming money for any college or university dwindles, one feels the pressure to replace it with something else, then the need to find some outside sources may be greater. Therefore, an institution must be run by those who are aware of the subtle influences that go on," Palmer said." The Boston report claimed , that there is evidence that the arts and humanities are suffering because colleges are rushing to -create new math, science .and engineering courses to attract more corporate donors. Palmer says that this maybe true^to some extent, there is definately a much greater influence; that of the students. "They (the students) come in >with expectations about what they ultimately want to get when they graduate. Good institutions, though, don't evenjgive in to that totally, becausefthey must keep in mind the importance.of liberal arts. %. The Capital Campaign, currently underway,\would seem to have been the perfect opportunity for donors to voice their opinions. Not so, says Dr. Palmer J Mosijjg^i up guidelines Detore they go out and ask for money. These rules are understood and universally accepted by everyone who gives and is asked to give. It is not at all unusual for the name of a corporation to be used somewhere on campus. The library will soon take the name of the well know paper company, Hammermill, who recently donated $250,000 to the college. J | £i| ''But? that's 5it," states Palmer.? "There are no other strings attached. For example, this doesn't mean tharall the books - will be changed! to engineering books. We still have our own freedom to buy whatever books * we deem necessary." p Mercyhurst College President Dr. William {Garvey strongly agrees. Of the capital funds collected, approximately $1 million is coming directly from local business and industry, and $250,00 of that is coming solely from Hammermill. "The majority of funds will come from friends of the college, the alumni, trustees, sisters and wealthy citizens of the community. So in a small college -atmosphere, the corporate world is not a major factor," Garvey states. I Mercyhurst College has a $9.2 million budget. Of this amount, approximately $100,000f is furnished from business and industry, exc l u d i n g funds attained through the Capital Campaign. Garvey said ,4 hat "from these facts alone, one can see that industry is by no means a major benefactor or supporter of this college."! J i "Onlyfl.3 percent of higher educations needs are met by corporate contributions," Jsay Arthur Kammerman, a member with the Council for Financial Aid to Education. f~$ I J w Dr. Garvey reducesjj&the charges of corporate control on campuses, "There are over 2000 colleges and suniversitites In this country, and the corporate controlling of them may be true in half of a dozen colleges. This report seems to be greatly exaggerated." Garvey acknowledges that Mercyhurst 3 would< never accept as gift which had a string attached that would limit*the train of thought. He also believes 99 percent of the presidents of colleges across the U.S. would feel the same. P £ It is an issue which does not affect 98 to 99 percent of the universities. Still, the Boston report advises, "the extent to which corporate donations have strings attached to their | gifts may actually limit the i diversity of thought."

Returning to campus on Monday after Easter vacation may have triggered many students to take it easy and discuss their long weekend with roommates and friends, while it may have prompted others to engage in the academic setting. | | -S Socializing was not a difficult task, especially if one lives in the dorms. However, finding a place to study Monday evening was difficult for those who were eager to get back into the academic swing of things, f * The library was open to students on Monday, but-shut its doors at 4p.m. Generally, most students do not arrive on campus until after*3p.m. whenhhe^dorms officially open. This seems to present problems of conflict. It would seem more likely that the library would open at the same time the dorms unlock their doors. The college is supposed to accommodate jts students. Yet there is a lack of policy as far as?'library hours.are concerned. One student or ten students who wish to utilize the library facilities should be granted "that option. An academic institution should not turn students away from : resources^ just a quiet place to study, v . " Director of the library, Joan Cooper said work study students and library paid personell were not available to schedule hours throughout the eyening. Yet work-study students were availablejluring|the day.: Those students and one librarian should have ?worked from 4p.m. until 11p.m. so that a greater number of students could utilize the facilities, f ? '; ^ - * 'Wfcooper said students were in the library during the day, but were the majority of them.f rom MercyhurSt? Probably not. | i ~& ML& * j | The onset of a new term would not necessitate for the library to open since papers and exams have hot reached their plateau. But the middle of-the term has its exams and papers with due dates arriving soon. Therefore, it only seems;, appropiate to open the library after Easter and Thanksgiving breaks when the work load is at an ultimate peak. ^ The lack of workers is not a sufficient excuse. If work study students are alerted to their work schedules in advance notice, they should<work their shift. Face it, if college prepares students for the 'real world' than they must be expected to work at inconvenient times. A policy must be implemented * to accommodate students eager to study after Easter and Thanksgiving breaks. Education does not&come to a halt because the academic calendar says classes are not in session. I ^ The library is open 84 hours a week while classes are in session. Will two more evenings during the year make that much of a difference.? Feedback would resolve this conflict and maybe establish some policy in regards to library hours coin* elding with the needs of the students.

Countdown to concert


Front Row Center seats reserved for co-chairpersons
*"% By Bryan Doherty and Matt Whelan - s i ] | f {When we sat down and began to ponder how we should write the Op-Ed article for I The Merciad , we were faced with three options. First of all, we could brag about how many long hours, arduous tasks and difficult decisions we had to deal with for this project. After explaining these numerous complications we could finish the story by. bragging about how much of a success the concert, will be. While ail of this may be true, it contains both an air of arrogance as. well as an essence of uncertainty at the present moment. Secondly, we could use this article to call to arms for the students ofi Mercyhurst to heed in order to help us with their concert. Yes, that's right, it is your concert and as such is just as important to you that it becomes a success. $ ^ * In exactly two weeks time whenj John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band take the stage at the Warner Theatre, there 3will be two thing.s of great concern to the students at stake. The reputation of our Student Government to produce a successful large-scale project and over $20,000^ of your money! J f the firstfdoes not appeal to your noble sense of school spirit, then we sure hope that the latter appeals to your hedonistic and pragmatic sense of greed. For if this project becomes a failure, it will have a great effect on all of you, both for the remainder of this year and perhaps for many years to come. ^ The last Special Project that was a flop was the Harry Chapin concert. This concert was such a disaster and lost so .much money that it discouraged these types of events for more than ; five years. In addition to this, the budgets of the following three governments had thousands of dollars encumbered in order to pay the f debts that were incurrred. W Now that we have stressed the "importance" of our project, we will < move on to our third and most important issue. You see, the whole idea of the Op-Ed part;; of our newspaper is to share with the students experiences that rtend to educate and enlighten them. * ' ^ At Our John Cafferty project is perhaps the best extracurricular learning experience thax is available to -the motivated of our ranks. Serving as ^chairperson of this committee offers youja potpourri of almost every major on campus. We're talking practical experience! From the very beginning when we conducted surveys,, we had a * litte taste of marketing and public relations. Our other appetizers included Communication s (working out (advertising details with WJET and K104), HRM (making preparations with! HRM students Brett Frederick, Phil Dai ley and Frank Victor about catering lunch and dinner for the band and road j- crew) and Security (recruiting competent and muscular students as well jas planning stage security! with Erie's finest). From here we moved on to the main courses which were the areas in whiqh we spent the most energy and experienced the most headaches. ; >& To say that Matt Whelan and Bryan Doherty are now accomplished and well-qualified lawyers ^and accountants might be an exaggeration, but it is a very slight one. We both' have 'discussed
and occasionally argued ticket


prices,TdebltsT credits, and break even points until we were blue in the face. In fact, just when your budget seems perfect, all of a sudden there is a new unforeseen expense that needs to be allowed for and you have to start all over

Campus Ministry

Ming sunshinejnto the lives\of elderly
"If we had 100 volunteers, it would not be too many," said Karen Donnelly about the Annex visiting program, to which Mercyhurst graciously extends its weekly services. Donnelly,* of Campus Ministry, is in charge of the p r o g r a m twhich takes volunteer students to visit the geriatric patients at the Annex. The Annex is an extension of the Erie ' County Geriatric Hospital. & The Annex, which Is located on Lake Pleasant Road in Erie, is run by the state. It presently houses 78 patients. Most of the patients at the Annex are those people who cannot afford other nursing homes. According to Donnelly, the number of patients per room varies. Some patients have private rooms and others share a room with up to five other people. * ** M'They really | don't have much privacy; each patient's whole horizon of life is within his own four walls," Donnelly said. Some of the patients do not have any relatives to visit "several of the patients are fortunate - they have once a week visits from Mercyhurst students." ^ M e r c y h u r s t has 15 volunteers who visit the patients once a? week. "The students bring a whole breath of fresh air and outside interests to the patients. You have to see it to believe how much -these visits are appreciated," Donnelly said. 1 "Visiting the Annex ; is a rewarding experience in itself. The people are great and very special. I only wish more people would become volunteers and give a little something meaningful to the residents of the home," said JoAnne Kocjancic, a volunteer. "Students should start thinking about joining the program in September/' Donnelly said. Students are only asked to go one hour a week and transportation is provided. Donnelly concluded by saying, "Now, during this spring, when the sun Is coming back into our lives, Met us bring some joy -to the people who are in the winter of their lives." By Susan Marcy May 5, 1985 is just another Sunday for most people. But not for Ron Verrilla, a senior Biology major here at Mercyhurst. This May 5, Verrilla will be running in the first ever Pittsburgh Marathon. * To prepare for the marathon, Verrilla follows a rigorous training schedule which includes running, on the average, 70 to 80 miles. "So far this year I've run lover 600 miles," Verrilla said. Verrilla's training week" consists of three "hard" days on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, somewhat easier* days on Monday sand Friday-land on Supday, Verrilla runs 20 miles. Presently, the Pittsburgh Marathon is the third largest in the country. This year's race is the TAC (which Is The Athletics Commerce) i Championship. The marathon is 26.2 miles in length and there will be plenty of good competition. Verrilla comments, " I recently ran 20 miles of the

Several students from, the Communications Department are? currently! involved in creating a series of public service announcements for the Students ,Against Drunk Driving program of Erie. | These PSA's will be aimed at alerting teenagers of the dangers of drinking and driving. ** *.. Director and Project Coordinator Gary Laurnoff believes these commercials will have some impact on the audience. "We can't stop these kids from drinking, but I think we can make them more aware of being * responsible in their 'social i d r i n k i n g ' , " * says Laurnoff, wm * The first PSA to be filmed this month* concerns the future of high school students in relation to drunk driving. H ^Sophomore English Communication major Brian Sheridan, who wrote the first 30 second*commercial, says, "We want these commercials to show what can happen if you're not careful about drinking and driving." vg Sheridan wrote the commercial with the idea of a "limited budget" in mind. "It's a simple one with f a camera panning down a row of hats symbolizing the different professions and coming to rest on a bottle of alcohol. $ "The £ point is, if one chooses to be a drunk driver first, they may! not have a choice at those other professions. AH we need is several props and a shelf to film it." Senior Lynne Martin looks forward to seeing these commercials on television. "I'm veryi excited to work on something that will benefit the community. I think the hazards of drunk driving are something every teenager should be aware of. I think the message will hit home." | f r f r k,*] M The idea* for producing these public service announcements stems from S.A.D.D. themselves. | It started with junior Chris Parker, Chairman of S.A.D.D. here at Mercyhurst." He came to me and asked if our department could get involved with the program and produce some commercials, said Richard? RagenJChairman of

Commuters fail!to participate in council
By Mary Frances Loncharic The Mercyhurst Commuter Council, a fairly new organization, needs new members. The Commuter Council began in the Fall of 1983 when a few concerned students recognized the need for such an organization on campus. It wasn't until ^December 1984 that this group was recognized iby the student government as an official organization. This meant that the group would receive-the support of MSG, as well as the ability to apply for funding for a special group activity. H Last year the council organized commuter morning coffee breaks, and volleyball games. 3 i ?*£: The Commuter Council has a bulletin board in the lobby of Zurn called 'The Commuter Council Bull Board." The purpose of the board is to post information and .activities that commuters would not ordinarily be aware of. •? The Commuter Council is a social group. It was not organized to help clear students of parking fines. It is a support group that enables commuters to overcome the disadvantages of living off campus. :>/ Commuter Council member J*ynn, Piotrowicz,? said during activities weekend last year Jbe commuters formed a team for the Softball tournament and had a 100 percent attendance. Unfortunately Ithe opcommuter team split up and had a game. # Some of the disadvantages of being a commuter are occasionally being late for classes, and lack of accessibility to information. Transportation can be a problem for commuters, especially in the winter. Many commuters believe they do not make as many friends as opposed to the residents. However, there are advantages to being a commuter. Carol Gunter is a Student Government {representative and a member of the Commuter Council. Associating with friends! on campus as well as off campus is an advantage Gunter sees as a commuter. f ^ [i Many commuters! believe they are outnumbered by the residents. Statistics show the reverse. Marilyn Moore, Assistant Registrar, provided the following figures for spring term in regards to ithe number of residents versus commuters. 'The head count of students attending classes this term is 1,573. The number of students living on campus (dorms, Briggs, Sesler) is 631. The total number of commuters is 942. This figure consists of 404 full and part-time - adult college students and 528 students itwho are commuters. J If you are interested in the Commuter Council, call Lynn

Tennis team takes third!
Although the Mercyhurst men's tennis team's record dipped to 5-10 on the season, the Laker jnetters finished thirdlin last Saturday's Ohio University Tennis Invitational. It took the final match of the day to decide the winner when the Hurst met Purdue.* The doubles match between Mercyhurst's Juan BlazquezJoe LoCastro and the Boilermaker's Carl Caseio-Jim "Gray went to the Purdue duo by a 8-6 count.

Proposal could have students serving the nation needs
Washington D.C. (CPS) Students land other youths could be a step closer to being required to devote ?two years of their lives to military or civilian national service. The sporadic debate over a national youth service flared anew with Sen. Gary Hart's recent proposal to establish a system requiring all youths to perform some kind of service for the nation. Hart's proposal would give $3 million to a commission to design a workable youth service system. Although advocates disagree about the best kind of program, and although Congress rejected a similar plan last year, most national youth service proponents welcomed Hart's initiative. | S* "There is* a great deal of debate that needs to occur before any consensus is reached, and Sen. Hart has stirred up some discussion," says Michael Sherriden of Washington University, coauthor of a book outlining one version s of a national youth "If Hart continues to be v i e w e d "as t h e l i k e l y Democratic (1988 presidential) nominee, this idea will go with him," Sherriden predicts. .jj But Hart's initiative won't be enough to get the idea through C o n g r e s s , says Mery l Maneker, co-author of a 1984 report on national youth service prepared for thejYouth Policy Institute, J * | "All the (1984) Democratic presidential candidates at one time or} another proposed some kind of youth service," Maneker! notes.$ "It's very Kennedy-esque." { Maneker says youth service is [less * politically appealing now than last year because of the focus on reducing the federal budget deficit. W I And as Jong as the Reagan administration i ignores it, Hart's jproposal will go nowhere, she predicts. "Hart is not that J great a political god that what he proposes will get acclaim just In unveiling his proposed because he proposes it," she legislation Feb. 27, Hart said says. he prefers a mandatory youth




That p l e a s e s Y o u n g Americans for Freedom Vice Chairman Jay Young, who says national youth service, whether voluntary or mandatory, is unnecessary. { "The volunteer spirit in this country is strong," Young Says. "There is no need for the government to get involved in volunteer programs.". | Young blasts Hart's call for a $3 million study as "a foolish waste of taxpayers' money." Polls, however, do suggest a majority of Americans favors some kind of national youth service. ? H I 0 A 1981 Gallup Poll found 71 percent of the public favors a compulsory program for men, while 54 percent endorsed a compulsory program for women, f 1 An-earlier Gallup Poll discovered a large majority of high school and college students also favor a voluntary youth service program. if

service program. H Hart's bill calls for the program to involve 12 to 24 months of service, with penalties for noncompliance if a mandatory plan is used. "A genuine sense of community and citizenship should include specific challenges and obligations, beginning with service^ to the nation," Hart said in a February 4 speech. "A new system of" national service^ - including! both military ad non-military opportunities - will fask young Americans to return some of the advantages and investments they have received from our society." * * Hart himself escaped military service by winning education deferments while studying at Bethany Nazarene College, Yale Divlnity*School and Yale Law School, f $ By the time he finished all three in 1964, at age 27, he was beyond draft age.

gram, believing *it would be divisive and too difficult to enforce. £ ft'; * J He advocates a voluntary program offering education tuition credits and paying participants minimum wage salaries, fc f About? one million people between 18 and 24 would part l c i p a t e each year, he estimates, * at a cost of $8 billion to $10 billion. Q "The value of the services rendered will more than compensate for the cost of the program," Sherriden says, if f Maneker believes any new youth service programs will be confined to local and state governments. New York City has a youth service program, as do New Jersey and California. | |Rep. Robert Torricelli (D-NJ) submitted a House bill similar to Hart's Senate bill. I

In past years, the full House has* defeated youth service bills after they've cleared the Sherriden says he opposes Sen a t e ^ a n d " a i H o u s e a mandatory youth service pro- committee. "**••
