THE MAROON "For a Greater Loyola ESTABLISHED 1923 VOL. 76 NO. 21 Loyola University New Orleans FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 1998 Loyola hires deans in A&S, Music By MICHAEL GIUSTI and LARRY GRAHAM Staff writers Frank Scully has been approved as Loyola's new dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. In the span of one week, Loyola has hired the replacement deans for two of its five colleges. Frank Scully, interim sciences dean at Old Dominion University, will assume the role of Loyola's dean of the College of Arts and Sciences while Edward Kvet, director of the Central Michigan University music school, will fill the vacated position in Loyola's College of Music. Both will begin working in fall 1998. David Danaher provost and vice president for Academic Affairs, said Scully was chosen as the next dean because he was strongly recommended by the search committee, among other reasons. "He has a well established record both as an academic and as an administrator," he said. Danahar added that Scully has strong people skills. "He has a great personality and a wonderful sense of humor, and those are both very important attributes," he said. Kenneth Messa, math and computer science associate professor and chairman of the dean search committee, said Scully is a strong candidate and will bring a lot to Loyola. Staff photo by PIERCE PRESLEY Brown updates LU's chemical disposal policy By PIERCE PRESLEY Online Editor Chemical hygenist ensures university's compliance with regulations If there's something hazardous and you want it gone, who ya gonna call? Chemical Hygiene. One man has the responsibility for properly disposing of every hazardous waste Loyola produces, from old chemical stock to radioactive phosphorus 32. Wayne Brown, chemical hygiene officer, handles the material from the initial ordering to the eventual removal. "I may get a few gallons of this or that — organic solvents or paint solvents or something that they find somewhere else, salt tablets to run deionizers — they'll say 'Oops, we've got to clean this' so they'll call me," Brown said. Loyola hired Brown in 1992 to ensure the university's compliance with Environmental Protection Agency and other regulations concerning handling, use and disposal of dangerous materials. Brown's first task was to take inventory of chemical stockrooms used by the chemistry and biology departments. A lot of the stock had been residing in storage, some dating from the days of Loyola's dental school, which closed in 1971. "When I started, this school had not had a program for regular disposals and also regular upkeep of their stocks," Brown said. Part of the problem came from chemists' habits concerning older LOOKING FORWARD By STEPHEN STUART Copy Editor University projects rise in enrollment despite drop in applications PROJECTED ENROLLMENT Next year's budget depends on a rise in enrollment, with a rise in undergraduate colleges balancing a decline in the law school.

A decline in applications for admission and a higher than expected rate of students who left Loyola after this fall indicate that the university might not meet its enrollment projection for next school year, said Antonio Lopez, University Budget Committee member. Based on these indicators, he does not support the university's projected enrollment, which calls for an increase over last year, Lopez said in an e-mail to all departments following Monday's ÜBC meeting. Lopez adds that enrollment directly relates to the number of applications received — one of several key factors that affects which way total enrollment goes. The university cannot pay for next year's budget as it stands now if enrollment doesn't reach projections, Lopez said. Loyola relies on projections because it must pay many of its costs, such as salaries, at the beginning of the year, while not receiving tuition revenue until later. Lopez recommends that these projections be lowered. "This means, of course, cuts in expected revenues which must then be balanced by either increases in revenues from other sources or cuts in expenditures." The university has projected an enrollment of 3,751 full-time equivalent students for next school year, up from this year's actual FTE of 3,677. This FTE — a number that adds up full-time and part-time students in order to calculate tuition revenue — is down almost 6 percent from the former standard projection of 3,900 full-time equivalent students. Lopez says that 3,751 is too optimistic. "I don't think they're going to get that," he said. A conservative estimate, in Lopez's eyes. SGA votes on 120 hours, says yes to motion By ELIZABETH STUART Editorial Editor The Student Government Association revisited a resolution recommending all colleges of the university adopt a minimum 120-hour graduation standard. The same resolution had been debated last week but was brought back to the table for additional discussion after some congressional members argued that there was not enough debate on the issue. The resolution passed again Tuesday, 14 to 8. Tim Fanguy, communications freshman and arts and sciences representative, called the resolution to a vote at the March 24 meeting. It passed, 18 to 8. After that meeting Jake Bauman, international business senior and congressman at large, along with other people, such as Kevin Casey, biology/pre-med senior and SGA president, argued that the discussion time was too short. People who opposed the resolution, such as Robert Leßlanc, business junior and congressman at large, said the 120- hour did not live up to Jesuit academic standard. "I'm strongly against standardizing our education against state schools like LSU," Leßlanc said. The author of the resolution, Jeff Behring, international business, finance and Spanish senior, spoke in favor of the resolution. He said the resolution would not take away from the high standard of education at Loyola. "The idea here is not quantity but quality," he said. Sec DEAN.
