THE MAROON VOL. 83, NO. 18 LOYOLA UNIVERSITY NEW ORLEANS FEBRUARY 25, 2005 Bateman campaigns for official honor code By Krystle Robinson Staff writer There is not an official university honor code at Loyola. However, after viewing the work done around campus by a student public relations team, the Faculty Senate passed a motion for the provost to discuss the implementation of a code with the college deans. This week the Bateman Team, which includes communications seniors Jacqueline Bodet, Kriby Scelfo and Jessica Venezia; Andrea Ganier, communications junior; and Kristen Haro, communications sophomore, presented a campaign titled "Check Out My Ethics." The programming was designed to spark discussion among students and faculty on the importance of academic honesty and the possible establishment of a university honor code. The campaign focused on aspects of student cheating on the high school and the university level. The team presented many workshops and forums, including workshops teaching students how to properly cite information and faculty discussions on the different policies they follow in the classroom and the successes and failures of each. The team held the events as part of the Public Relations Society of America competition. Each year, PRSA gives its collegiate organizations a topic to research, market and present on campuses nationwide. Usually the product or topic is something commercial, but this year PRSA unexpectedly decided to assign the students a topic on academics.PRSA also required that each organization competing in the Bateman Challenge must work with a local high school on the same issue. Loyola's Bateman team members began to research their topic in December. They took surveys, read research studies and worked with De La Salle high school students. Cathy Rogers, associate professor of communications and the team s adviser, said that the purpose of he campaign was to advance a student's ethical behavior bD mating a connection between academic honesty and future job performance. By making this connection, the team hopes that it will increase the level of Church and state not as separate as they seem By Sarah Castagnetta Staff writer According to Lionel Stoleru, the battle between church and state is not a point of debate only in the United States. Stoleru, former French secretary of labor, offered an overseas perspective on the issue in a lecture Monday, suggesting that even when the secular government is achieved it is theoretical at best. Stoleru's lecture, "Democracy and Religion: The French Experience," was sponsored by the Biever Guest Lecture Series, l'Alliance de la Nouvelle-Orleans and the Department of Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures. According to Stoleru, the separation of church and state in France has been a long and arduous battle. "It is a danger to join God and state for some of us," said Peter S. Rogers, S.J., a French professor in the Department of Modem Foreign Languages and Literature. "Religion and democracy is the question [tonight)." Stoleru's lecture spanned the history of French government from the era leading up to the French Revolution to present day France. Guest speaker Lionel Stoleru addresses a crowd in the Danna Center's Audubon Room during a lecture Monday entitled 'Democracy and Religion: The French Experience.' Stoleru spoke about the importance of separation between church and state in France and other European countries.In the time prior to the Republic, France's government was composed of three pillars: the king and nobles, the army and the Catholic Church. The French welcomed the pope in Avignon and joined the Crusades, killing hundreds of thousands of Muslims, Stoleru said. "They had done nothing," Stoleru said. "But they were not Catholic, so they died." In 1789, the French Revolution erupted, killing the power of the monarchy and the Catholic Church with the guillotining of King Louis XVI.
