THE MAROON ESTABLISHED 1923 VOL. 73 NO. 11 Loyola University New Orleans FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1994 Student Government monitors possible tuition hike By NICK VACARRO Contributing writer Students may have to come up with more money for tuition, but the Student Government Association is trying to monitor any increases. The University Budget Committee, met on Monday to discuss a possible increase. According to David Swanzy, Music College dean and chairman of the ÜBC, students can expect a tuition increase, but no specific percentage has been quoted. The highest proposal was 7.2 percent. SGA Financial Director and ÜBC student member, Justin Joseph, finance accountingaccounting junior, said a tuition increase has been proposed for several reasons. If the Rev. James C. Carter, S.J., university president, becomes chancellor, it will create a new office, which will require funding. Also, any changes suggested by the Southem Association of Colleges and Schools Review Board will also require funding. Other cost items are being discussed. "We [SGA] proposed a cut of the faculty's five percent payroll increase to four and a half percent," Joseph said. Swanzy said that more financial aid for students has been figured into the budget and he feels this will balance out a tuition increase. "The benefit is [that] there is a quality improvement and a quality faculty because of this [tuition increase]," he said. "The disadvantage is [that] if the tuition goes up so high, then the present student body can't afford it. However, most people see it as a good bargain compared to the tuition of the other Jesuit schools." The ÜBC gives its proposals to Carter, and he will submit a proposal to the Board of Trustees, which will make the final decision.Students may express their opinions to the SGA at tuition sub-committee meetings held every Thursday at 5 p.m. in the SGA office.

Fate of 1994 Wolf yearbook remains unclear By PETER REICHARD Editor in Chief "Last year's yearbook is just a big pile of papers on the yearbook (office) floor," said Elena Volpert, communications junior and 1995 Wolf editor. Tracey Guillotte, first-year law student, was the editor of the 1994 Wolf, which was supposed to be finished last May. But according to Volpert, Guillotte said that it is not complete because she was finishing the yearbook from 1993 instead of working on the 1994 book. Michael Delaune, who graduated in 1994, was the editor of the 1993 Wolf and did not complete the 1993 edition by deadline.William Hammel, communications chairman, said that Guillotte does not plan to complete the 1994 Wolf VOLPERT GUILLOTTE University prepares for accreditation review By MICHELLE HUDSON and ELIZABETH KEENAN Staff writers Loyola must prove that it offers the best educational and structural environment within its means; at least to have its accreditation reaffirmed. According to John Biguenet, English professor and director of Loyola's institutional study, a group of peer evaluators representing the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, will visit the university April 18-21 to interview students and faculty and to view the university's records. They will determine if Loyola is operating in compliance with the rules and regulations of SACS. Daniel Sheridan, assistant vice president for Academic Affairs and vice chairman of the Steering Committee, said that the university has complied with all the procedures outlined by SACS. "In the self-study, we had to agree to confirm and abide by all the rules," Sheridan said. "I have no doubt that the school will pass [accreditation]. We're a good school." In preparation for the visit, a Steering Committee was formed in 1993 to conduct an internal study. The committee prepared a draft titled. Institutional Self- Study Report, which details the university's procedures and practices. A final draft of the report will be sent to the peer group so it can have an idea of Loyola's curriculum and policies before the visit. The university will also create a separate booklet that will serve as Loyola's agreement to make changes required by SACS. There were several Principal Committees appointed to examine specific componentscomponents outlined in the 1992-93 edition of Criteria for Accreditation — a booklet produced by the Commission on Colleges.One of the Principle Committees is the Faculty committee chaired by Jane Chauvin, Education department chairwoman, and Lynn Koplitz, associate chemistry professor. The committee was responsible for evaluating the effectiveness of Loyola's hiring practices. The self-study report stated that Loyola hires faculty and staff members through search committees, which are "instructed to be particularly aggressive in building the applicant pool, in part, to increase the number of minorities, women and Jesuits on the staff." The Faculty committee also listed several recommendations and suggestions. Among them, the committee suggested that the university make a document titled Recruitment Guidelines for Faculty and Professional Staff, available to all faculty members. The committee suggested that the university hire a full-time faculty member for the graduate program to meet the SACS requirement that all universities should have "at least four qualified fulltime faculty members whose responsibilities include teaching in the program [and] are employed in each of its graduate degree programs..."
