Taking steps toward shared governance Group aims by Kallie Red-Horse Daily Lobo

The Provost’s Office is trying to discern faculty members’ opinions on their stake in University governance. Provost Suzanne Ortega announced at the regents’ meeting Tuesday that her office would conduct a survey among faculty — many of whom are concerned about their role in UNM’s shared governance — to collect baseline data on faculty’s views on decision-making roles at the University before any changes are made.

The Provost’s Office expects to distribute the 35-question survey to faculty before Thanksgiving break, Ortega said. “In January 2011, a comprehensive report on the progress we have made in improving shared governance and communication will be released,” Ortega said. “An essential element in that report is the survey to document the progress that we have made over the years.” Regents President Raymond Sanchez said shared governance would increase the influence of the faculty in the Board’s affairs, but not vice versa.

“The faculty is saying they want to have a say in the regents’ business, so the regents need to have something to do with what has been the faculty’s business,” he said. The goal of shared governance is to increase the cooperation between faculty and the Board of Regents, Ortega said, but ultimate authority will remain with the Board of Regents. “I prefer to think of it as collaborative decision making where different points of view are fully represented, though a decision needs to be made by a designated individual,” she said. Faculty Senate President-Elect

Richard Wood — who attended the regents’ meeting on behalf of Faculty Senate President Doug Fields — did not offer an opinion on the matter during the regents’ discussion. “This is a unique opportunity to actually develop a clear understanding of where our tension points are,” Ortega said. “The survey will reflect the interests of all its stakeholders, because it provides data that is useful in identifying the most strategic changes we can make to make very important progress.”

to engage students in community by Mario Trujillo Daily Lobo

Students erected a Wall of Burning Issues on Monday in the SUB, and student Travis McKenzie recited a poem encouraging the UNM community to participate in the event. “Coming with the people, we are making the choice to stand up united — fight with our minds. Our words are our swords, and our thoughts are our knives,” he said. About 50 students and organization representatives scribbled their concerns about UNM on the Wall of Burning Issues. Their comments related to problems with student advisement, sustainability and the smoking ban. The wall acted as a backdrop Monday to the student town hall, which turned into a meet and greet between different organizations. The Student Action Network, a newly chartered organization that acts as a networking aid for organizations and students to get involved in the UNM community, put the event together, said McKenzie, who co-founded the group. McKenzie said SAN is still useful for networking, even with Web sites like Facebook and Myspace. “It’s the feeling,” he said. “Hopefully if you came, you felt welcome, you felt like you can be part of it, like you can participate. Hopefully, you didn’t feel isolated, and that is what we are trying to support.” SAN was born out of Service Action Network, an organization that withered away a year ago. McKenzie and Daniel Marzec revived the Student Action Network this semester. Since SAN is a young organization, the details of its mission have not been clearly fleshed out, and the two co-founders have different ideas about how SAN will evolve. “SAN is absent of an ego,” McKenzie said. “It is not like SAN is going to make an official decision for an issue,

Student Health Center faces expected H1N1 vaccine shortage by Tricia Remark Daily Lobo

The Student Health and Counseling center only has 50 H1N1 vaccinations to ration between about 25,000 students. Vaccinations for the entire student body of UNM were expected to arrive in early October, but there’s already a month delay and still no clear distribution date in sight, said Beverly Kloeppel, director of SHAC. The H1N1 vaccine shortages are nationwide, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention

Web site, and New Mexico has received only 0.48 percent of vaccines made in the U.S. All states receive vaccines based on population size, according to the site. Kloeppel said manufacturing problems are to blame for vaccine shortages. “It’s speed of manufacturing,” she said. “It’s still kind of a cumbersome process to make a vaccine.” Kloeppel said shortages were expected because the virus is so new. “H1N1 just came on the scene as a virus in May, so they had to identify the virus, develop the vaccine, get it

approved, then get mass manufacturing done all since then,” she said. Byron Piatt, UNM emergency manager, said the University was prepared for vaccine shortages. “As far as H1N1 — again thinking that we probably wouldn’t have the vaccine — that’s why we’ve really been trying to encourage social mitigation,” Piatt said. “Stay home if you’re sick, cover your cough and sneeze, wash your hands diligently, and get the vaccine when it’s available.” The federal government took charge of the entire vaccine production process, Piatt said, so the shot is

free to UNM students. Kloeppel said that, as a result of the vaccine shortage, vaccines are only being distributed to students who meet specific CDC guidelines. “Currently, what we’re dong is giving it only to students who are pregnant, live in a household with an infant less than three months old, 17and 18-year-old students who have chronic health problems and health care workers,” Kloeppel said. Kloeppel said there’s no telling when UNM will have enough vaccines for all students, but she plans to have vaccination clinics on campus before

students leave for the holidays. The seasonal flu usually has the largest number of cases in January, Kloeppel said, but no one knows when the peak in H1N1 cases will be because it is such a new virus. Kloeppel said she hopes the H1N1 vaccine will be widely available before the seasonal flu hits. “Since we don’t know when H1N1 season really is — for example we saw a peak in May, and we’ve seen a peak here on campus in early October — I certainly would recommend the vaccine whenever it is available,” she said.

Regent Jamie Koch said he was concerned about the accuracy of the proposed survey and suggested faculty and regents get an opportunity to look it over before it is released. “I have concerns about what questions are going to be asked and how they are going to be asked, because the key is the wording on those questions,” he said. “I also have concerns — if we are talking before Thanksgiving — if this document will be ready to go out.” Ortega said the content addressed in the survey has been

well researched. “The strategy in creating this document has been two fold,” she said. “The first (strategy was) to consult with a variety of stakeholders to clarify understanding. The second was to draft an instrument that reflected both the standards regarding shared governance as well as more local and specific representation for this kind of information.” The shared governance policy is an effort to cohesively expand the role of faculty in administrative decisions, Ortega said.

The administration expects to bring about changes by January 2011, and the survey will help illustrate the progress, she said. “It will establish a set of principles that include areas of primary faculty responsibility,” she said. “There are also issues about what I would call cooperative decision making, which is not technically shared governance, but is certainly a set of expectations that define appropriate points in key decisions. There is a process and place for facilitating conversation that informs the ultimate decision.”

decided what specific issues, if any, to take up. One possibility came from Andrew Marcum, a graduate teaching assistant in the Research Service Learning Program. He spoke at the town hall about a class that is designing a sustainability program for the dorms using student involvement. “In my classes that I teach, we do research, but then we figure out how we can use that research,” Marcum said. “The idea behind it is to find a way to get students engaged in their community, but also to take the intellectual energy and the knowledge here on campus and direct it to serve the communities.” Marcum said he showed up

to the meeting to cheer on civic engagement. “Cultivating an atmosphere of civic engagement on campus and making students realize it is their campus, and they should take responsibility for what is going on here — that is really a strong message,” he said. McKenzie said one message SAN is already pushing is that community service doesn’t have to be a chore or a punishment. “When you get into jail or a juvenile detention center, what are they going to make you do? Community service,” McKenzie said. “We are trying to flip the paradigm and say community service is being active in the communities we create.”

on us because I’m staying optimistic,” he said. “We’ve been trying to get folks in that mindset — as soon as it becomes available, be thinking about it. But, I don’ think there’s any panic.” Although the SHAC personnel don’t usually test students for H1N1, Kloeppel said most people who have flu-like symptoms with a fever of over 100 degrees are presumed to

have H1N1. “The assumption is that if you have an influenza-like illness, then it’s H1N1,” she said. “There are really no other kinds of influenza circulating in the population right now. The Health Department has surveillance sites throughout the state, and when they do test people who have influenza-like illnesses, 95 to 99 percent is H1N1.”

Engage from page 1 because what we are is a network — a network that can say, ‘Here are the issues,’ all sides of the issues, then present all the information so everybody can decide for themselves.”­­ But Marzec said he sees SAN as more than a forum of ideas. He said he sees the network backing certain issues in the future. “We are a network that, I believe, brings common themes that intertwine all these different organizations together,” Marzec said. “Then we will put those themes into a policy that we can introduce and bring into the agenda of those higher up.” The common theme that will unite those issues is community service, the co-founders said. But they haven’t

I don’t think it’s going to have an adverse affect

Letter Displays of porn shouldn’t be considered ‘fun, lighthearted’ Editor, In the gloom of all the bad news looming around — such as the Locksley incident, Lambert’s display and the Fort Hood/Orlando shootings — many talk about what preventative measures could have been taken. Each of these acts was an accumulation of behaviors and thoughts that led to the action. Looking back, we now know what we could have done, but, alas, it’s too late and the past cannot be undone. What is more disturbing to me than any of these events is the blatant display and support of groups affiliated with pornography. This is another most serious and, now, open obsession such as hate, anger and greed. A church leader, named Elder Richard G. Scott, said the following on pornography, “Satan has become a master at using the addictive power of pornography to limit individual capacity to be led by the spirit. The onslaught of pornography in all of its vicious, corroding, destructive forms has caused great grief, suffering, heartache and destroyed marriages. It is one of the most damning influences on earth. Whether it be through the printed page, movies, television, obscene lyrics, vulgarities on the telephone or flickering personal computer screen, pornography is overpoweringly addictive and severely damaging. This potent tool of Lucifer degrades the mind and the heart and the soul of any who use it. All who are caught in its seductive, tantalizing web and remain so will become addicted to its immoral, destructive influence. For many, that addiction cannot be overcome without help. The tragic pattern is so familiar. It begins with curiosity that is fueled by its stimulation and is justified by the false premise that when done privately, it does no harm to anyone else. For those lulled by this lie, the experimentation goes deeper, with more powerful stimulations, until the trap closes and a terribly immoral, addictive habit exercises its vicious control.” He continues, “Participation in pornography in any of its lurid forms is a manifestation of unbridled selfishness. How can a man (or woman) … not think of the emotional and spiritual damage caused to other human beings, especially his wife, by such abhorrent activity?” I agree wholeheartedly with Elder Scott. Why is an article about pornography on the front page, let alone any page of any newspaper, especially our Daily Lobo? If there can be a stop to any displays of pornography in any of its forms, then there can be help to those problems that otherwise will generate disasters. Those who don’t support these statements are in support of pornography and all of its consequences. We can do something to prevent disaster. Please do not think or accept for a moment that porn in any sense or form is “fun and lighthearted.” Hunter Esmiol UNM student

Hepatitis: Know risks, how to protect yourself by Peggy Spencer

Daily Lobo columnist Dear Dr. Peg, How are the different types of hepatitis transmitted? First let me explain what hepatitis is, for those who don’t know. Hepatitis is a disease of the liver. Your liver is an organ located in your abdomen, on the right side, under your lower rib cage. It has several very important roles in digestion and metabolism. When you eat, stuff gets absorbed from your intestines into your bloodstream. The first place the blood carries the stuff is through your liver. The liver filters the blood, hanging on to the garbage and letting the good stuff through. The liver also produces bile, a green liquid that helps your body absorb fat. This super organ also serves as a breakdown and storage facility for important vitamins, minerals, immune cells and energy sources and a production facility for blood-clotting substances, not to mention a site for metabolism of many fats, carbohydrates and proteins. You can’t live without your liver, although if you lose part of it, like in an accident or as a donation to someone who needs it, that part will grow back. It seems like even the ancient Greeks knew this. You might have heard of the myth of Prometheus. He was the Greek god who liked humans so much he gave them the gift of fire, without checking with Zeus first. This infuriated Zeus, so he tied Prometheus to a rock and sent a vulture to eat his liver on a regular basis. Ouch! Between vulture visits, Prometheus’ liver regenerated. Prometheus was eventually rescued, by the way, courtesy of Hercules. Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver. “Hepa” is from a Greek word meaning “liver”

and the “itis” is Latin for “inflammation.” You have heard that Latin suffix in words like appendicitis and laryngitis. Hepatitis is a general term that can describe liver inflammation from various causes, including drugs, alcohol and viruses. I’ll limit my discussion to viral hepatitis. Viral hepatitis comes in 5 varieties: A, B, C, D and E. The first three are by far the most common in our country. Hepatitis A is passed through what is called the fecaloral route. Someone who has Hepatitis A excretes it in their feces, and someone else takes it in orally. How? If the excreter didn’t wash their hands carefully after using the bathroom and then prepared food for you or shared food with you, that could do it. Oral sex on someone who has it could do it. Hepatitis A occurs in the U.S. but is more common in developing countries. There is a vaccination for it that we recommend for travelers to areas with a high incidence. Hepatitis A is not a pleasant disease — it causes nausea, vomiting and jaundice, but most people in this country recover from it without incident. Hepatitis B is passed through blood and bodily fluids. This can happen at birth, from mother to child, if the mother has it, or during sex, or during intravenous drug use if needles are shared. It can also be passed in occupational accidents during health care procedures on infected patients. Hepatitis B is a much more serious disease than Hepatitis A. Some people recover fully, but Hepatitis B can become chronic, meaning it can last a long time and damage your liver. It can also cause cancer of the liver. Vaccination for Hepatitis B has become routine for babies in this country, but that happened relatively recently. If you didn’t get one, I

recommend you do so. It is a three-shot series and you can get it at SHAC. Hepatitis C is the up-and-coming liver monster of the millennium, according to experts. About 3.2 million Americans have Hepatitis C, and many of them don’t know it because it usually has no symptoms to begin with. Like Hepatitis B, it is passed through blood and bodily fluids, although sexual transmission of Hepatitis C is not as efficient as it is for Hepatitis B. Many people with Hepatitis C get it through intravenous drug use. There is no vaccine for Hepatitis C, and a high percentage of people who get this one go on to develop chronic liver disease, cirrhosis and cancer. Hepatitis C is the number one reason for liver transplants. Hepatitis D is like B, and E is like A. Both are rare and neither has a vaccine. You can minimize your chances of getting viral hepatitis by getting immunized against B, making sure you see a travel clinic before you travel in case you need a Hepatitis A shot, avoiding intravenous drug use and practicing standard safety procedures if you work in the health fields. For more info, go to Goaskalice.columbia.edu or Cdc.gov. To get immunized, come to SHAC and see the highly skilled nurses in our Allergy and Immunization Clinic.

Local band hits home after 2 years on the road by Hunter Riley Daily Lobo

Most bands might not consider getting pegged in the head with a half-full beer can as a sign of musical success. But the Big Spank does. The local band is having a homecoming show on Saturday at the Launchpad after two years of national touring. Trombone player Retzen Griffith said their national tour exposed the band to audiences they hadn’t connected to before. “One summer we played in North Carolina at a big Rock-A-Billy festival,� he said. “The crowd was kind of a punk crowd and they were drinking their PBRs, and the way they show their love at these shows is they throw their beer at you. And I don’t mean a beer that’s empty. They have so many beers they don’t even have to be empty first. (Bass player) Chris Tickner got beaned in the head with a PBR can.� Tickner said the band has produced three full-length albums that are all available online at iTunes, Amazon and CDBaby.com. “I would say our style is a bit Ska, Punk, some Latin and maybe some hip-hop, too,� he said. Griffith said the band is glad to perform in their hometown after taking some time off because their

lead singer, Mike Garcia, had a broken collar bone. “This week is my 11th anniversary with the band,� Griffith said. “We’ve been coast to coast twice in the last two years. We did the local thing for the first eight years or so. Then we spent a couple years (on the road) full time. Everybody sold everything they owned and moved into a bus.� The band includes Griffith (trombone), Tickner (Bass), Garcia (vocals, accordion and guitar), Javier Sandoval (guitar) and Bert Lujan (drums). Tickner said the band is interested in doing some shows that benefit charities now that they’re back in town. Audience members are invited to bring donations to the show at the Launchpad. “We have a benefit show for the Storehouse, and what you do is you bring in a funky sweater or some food, and then all that is donated to the Storehouse,� he said. Griffith said the band’s name doesn’t have a deep history — it came from a long brainstorm session.

“They were so tired of trying to choose names, so the singer, Mike, said ‘It doesn’t matter what the next name is, that’s going to be it.’ One of the members said ‘The Big Spank,’ and it just happened to be a good name that fits the musical style. Our front guy likes to spank his‌ he likes to just spank it. It includes everything from humping the stage monitors, microphone stands and people in the crowd. It’s not a good show if at least two or three girls don’t get lap dances.â€? Griffith said the band plans to stay in Albuquerque for a while and hopefully record another CD in between playing local venues.
