OU’s program for research ethics training has been awarded funds for a new project that will analyze international ethics and prepare students interested in working overseas. The work done by OU’s Professional Ethics Training program — which is put on by the OU Graduate College and Center for Applied Social Research — garnered new funding from the Council of Graduate Schools. This award will fund a program to examine the differences in science research ethics around the world, said Michael Mumford, psychology professor and director of the Center for Applied Social Research. The program’s ultimate goal is to teach international students about North American ethics and prepare North American students for different ethical standards across the globe, he said. The Center for Applied Social Research was founded in 2004 as an initiative to help solve local problems through the application of the social sciences, according to its website. The Professional Ethics Training program was started by the Center for Applied Social Research in 2005. The program served as a way to test if it actually could improve students’ ethical see ETHICS paGe 2

While university enrollment has grown by about 3.54 percent since 2008, the use of the psychiatric services on campus has grown by about 37.86 percent since then. Ap p o i n t m e n t s a t t h e University Counseling Center remaine d fairly consistent from 2007-2008 (589) to 2008-2009 (628). However, it increased by 131 appointments (759) during the 2009-2010 academic school year, according to the center’s records. The annual number of appointments has continued to climb since then, but not by nearly as large a number, Dr. Scott Miller, associate director of the OU University Counseling Center, said in an email. During the 2011 to 2 0 1 2 s c h o o l y e a r, 8 1 2 appointments were made with the center, according to records. Miller said this growth in appointments most likely is because of an increase in staff psychiatrist Nancy Curry’s working hours. In 2009, funding from the Student Activity Fee committee — a committee made up of UOSA executives and members of Student Affairs — allowed the University Counseling Center to give Curry more hours so she could see more students each week, Miller said. “As a result, we have been

able to keep up with student demand for psychiatric services,” he said. So in 2009, Curry transitioned from half the full-time equivalent to working three-fourths the full-time equivalent a week. This allowed her to see more patients, she said. Curry is the only staff psychiatrist at the University Counseling Center. Curry said the extended work hours allow her to accomplish a variety of responsibilities, including seeing patients for medication management and providing consultation for the counseling center and OU Health Services staff.

A Sutton Artist Series flute performance by Valerie Watts will be held from 8 to 10 p.m. in Catlett Music Center’s Pitman Recital Hall.

“I wanted to show people what I can do,” Galoob said. “I can do whatever I want to.” The resource center does not just offer interpreters to students; it also works to target specific teaching trends that are more challenging for students who are deaf or hard of hearing, Martin said. For example, classes that regularly utilize movies and other types of media are more challenging for these students who find it difficult to watch both the movie and the interpreter, she said. Her goal is to get professors to include captions on films during classes so the students can “have full access” to the material, Martin said. The resource center ’s ultimate goal is to make sure all students receive the best education in their classes and obtain all of the information, Martin said. chuc nguyen/the daily

Don’t take campus safety for granted

The real story behind sexual assault changes


afety is something opinion columnist we all take for granted more than occasionally. We are confident that our dorms are safe and we can walk around campus and Norman without fear. Sarah Sullivan I, myself, have forgotten at times there is danger out there. We fail to consider the alternative — that we might not be safe walking in the local park or leaving the back door unlocked. Even though there is safety in numbers and we’re on a campus with thousands of students each day, it is always better to be proactive, anticipate dangerous scenarios and be aware of your surroundings. Two weeks ago a 73 year old woman was sexually assaulted in Central Park in broad daylight. When she left her home that day, I am sure being attacked was the last concern on her mind. The woman, whose name has not been released, was bird watching when she came upon a homeless man engaging in inappropriate activities with himself. She reportedly took a picture, but did not report the incident to the police. Then, at 11 a.m. on Sept. 12, she was assaulted by David Albert Mitchell in Central Park, whom she claims was the same individual she photographed. The majority of sexual assault cases go unreported by victims, and whether they’re happening in a city with a population of more than 8 million or on a campus with nearly 30,000 students enrolled, we should be aware of possible danger. The New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault reported at least one in four college women will be the

victim of a sexual assault during her academic career. And, like the woman Go to in Central Park who had for more information, previously come in contact including: with her assailant, at least • personal safety tips 80 percent of all sexual • crime statistics and assaults are committed reports by an acquaintance of the • sex crime prevention victim. • other resources So what do we do? We make ourselves aware. I am not saying we should all walk around with pepper spray in our backpacks and purses, but we should remember simply to take notice of what is going on around us. When you are out on the weekends partying, clubbing or even just walking around at night, there are little things you can do that could help prevent an awful situation: • Don’t leave your drink unattended. • Let someone know where you are going. • Use the buddy system. (Yes, the buddy system. It is something that has been drilled into our heads since kindergarten, but for good reason.) Most importantly, if you feel like you are in danger — whether you think you are being followed on the street or watched a little to closely at a party — do not hesitate to tell someone. You can tell security or call the police, because if you genuinely feel uncomfortable or threatened, you have every right to alert someone. We can take action against crime by being proactive.

AT A GLANCE Resources

Sarah Sullivan is an English writing junior.

I am writing in regards to Tuesday’s editorial “You can help OU culture support assault victims,” as a representative of the Student Organizer’s Collective. We’d like to clarify how the changes in OU’s sexual misconduct policy happened. We take issue with statements like “Maybe this change was brought about by the work of organizations like the Women’s Outreach Center …” The WOC was the first organization contacted by the Women’s and Gender Studies Student Association (now Student Organizer’s Collective). They discouraged students’ efforts. Several other administrators ignored us. Members of UOSA attempted to stop us, because we didn’t submit the proposal through them. OU administrators failed to seriously respond to our proposal until they were contacted about an upcoming sitin. After a potential PR nightmare, we got a response. We’re disappointed The Daily briefly mentioned a “movement,” rather than acknowledging specific organizers involved, especially considering their extensive coverage of these events less than two years ago. However, we do understand that the focus of the story was not on the history of the movement, but rather changes in OU’s atmosphere. OU administration, WOC and UOSA are taking credit for a policy they actively fought against. Because of the lack of continuous public conversation about this, as well as frequent turnover (unfortunately a reality at a university) the history of student activism is quickly erased and forgotten. It’s clear that OU as an institution is more concerned about its image than students’ involvement. The WOC has boosted PR at the expense of organizers and sexual assault survivors. This isn’t an issue of claiming credit or resume building for Student Organizer’s Collective members. This is an issue of administrators perpetuating false narratives implying they did not try to hinder change and going unchallenged. Carly Palans, women and gender studies senior

Norman gets groovy for human rights Groovfest has celebrated human rights since 1986 Colby Frederick Life & Arts Reporter

Norman’s 50th Groovefest celebrated music and human rights awareness organizations Sunday despite dreary skies. About 200 people showed up to Andrews Park on Sunday afternoon for the festival that included activities for families and children, such as food and face-painting, all set to the tune of a variety of music. However, the groovy event’s real focus was promoting awareness of human rights issues. Groovefest publicized current and unresolved human rights issues and presented ways to get involved with awarenessoriented organizations, such as Oklahomans Against Trafficking Humans and Amnesty International. “Groovefest is a collaboration of many different causes and groups,” University College freshman Lucy Mahaffey said to the audience at Andrews Park. “The music makes for a lively and fun environment, and the groups represented here stand for something important and real.” Groovefest is organized and coordinated through a joint partnership with A m n e s t y Int e r nat i o na l at OU and through a committee that oversees i t s ov e ra l l p ro d u c t i o n ,

event coordinator Aimee Rook said. For 27 years, the event has highlighted and emphasized the importance

of the efforts made by businesses, artists and local organizations such, as OATH to promote the growth of human rights awareness, she said. Rook said Groovefest was started by OU students in 1986 so artists like herself could promote issues that do not receive much coverage. “Through Groovefest, we can develop a passion and a desire to help others,” Rook said. “One of the largest problems with human rights is that so many do not know of the issues at hand.

Here, we raise awareness so that others may hear and learn, all the while having fun,enjoying the music and the environment. Community is critical, and without the outreach and Heather brown/the daily support we receive from so many groups, we would not (left) Chris Phelps walks on a tightrope in Andrews Park at the 50th Groovefest.

Ringo Deathstarr hopes new album will bring smiles Molly Evans

Life & Arts Reporter

After its first Oklahoma appearance in Tulsa on Friday, Ringo Deathstarr is headlining a free concert at 7 tonight at the Opolis presented by the Union Programming Board and Campus Activities Council Concert Series. Because of Thursday’s stormy weather in Norman and faulty reception in Wyoming, The Daily interviewed Ringo Deathstarr’s singer and guitarist, Elliott Frazier, via text message with Molly Evans. The Daily: Ringo Deathstarr has been coupled with ’80s and ’90s indie outfits like The Cure, The Velvet Underground, The Smiths and current groups like The Jesus and Mary Chain. Do you regard these influences at all or focus on Ringo Deathstarr’s originality? Frazier: I just try to make the music that I would want to experience live if I were the last person alive on earth. The Daily: The band’s also been categorized into the “shoegaze” genre. Can you explain what that means, or if you could summarize your sound into a new genre, what would you call it? Frazier: I would drop the “gaze” and just be “shoe.”

Every Tuesday

I have begun to hate that fucking word. It works when you are just talking to other music geeks but not when you are trying to make new fans who don’t know about all those old bands. I’d say we are a rock ‘n’ roll band with pop melodies. The Daily: Your third fulllength album “Mauve” released Tuesday, what does it feel like before and after an album drops? Frazier: It’s like being a kid trying to sleep on Christmas Eve. Also, [it’s] kind of freaky because you just don’t know what will happen with all your hard work. Thankfully, it seems to be going down well, and now, we can see which songs people are reacting to and that will inform what we do live because this album is best enjoyed in a live setting. The Daily: What do you hope listeners experience with “Mauve?” Frazier: A sense of dreamy. A smile. The Daily: Ringo Deathstarr’s playing for free tonight at the Opolis. What are the rewards of playing a free show? Frazier: Free shows are awesome because people love not paying for stuff. It gives us an opportunity to make new fans that might not have seen us otherwise. SPIRITS

Frazier: I am looking forward to playing in Oklahoma because we haven’t before. Weird, right? We are playing Tulsa tomorrow [Friday, Sept. 28] with the Smashing Pumpkins as well, so we hope to make a lasting impression and visit again soon. The Daily: Lastly, for many who know Ringo Starr, can you explain the band’s name? Frazier: The name was revealed to me in a dream by an angel, and I’m afraid the world isn’t ready for the true meaning.

OSU goalkeeper keeps thriller a tie Sooners out shoot Cowgirls 23-18 in two overtime draw Ross Stracke Sports Reporter

As if it had been asleep all season long, the Oklahoma soccer team’s offense came alive Sunday night as it tied the Oklahoma State Cowgirls 1-1 in a double overtime game between two teams who obviously hate each other. The Cowgirls struck first as they scored late in the first half off a corner kick from junior forward Taylor Mathews that freshman defender Delaney Kiely headed in. Most of Oklahoma State’s opportunities came from it’s 13 corner kicks. OSU coach Colin Carmichael said his team has been working on set plays throughout the week. “We’ve got a kid named Ta y l o r M a t h e w s w h o delivers a really good ball, and then Delaney Kiely and Carson Michalowski are really good at attacking it,” Carmichael said. “We actually talked in practice the last couple weeks about trying to be better on the set plays. “Tonight we scored one, and I felt like we had a couple more pretty good chances.” For the Sooners, it was all about senior forward Renae Cuellar. She scored OU ’s only goal of the night when she dribbled to the top of the box and shot the ball through a

sea of orange. It glided through the defenders and found its way in the back left of the net. Renae Cuellar Cuellar should have kept the ball because it was a rare sight to see a ball get past OSU senior goalkeeper Adrianna Franch. Franch had a world-class performance, recording a season-high 11 saves.

Most of her saves were sure goals going into the upper corners of the net that she somehow just kept poking away. The most important save Franch had came in the first overtime when Cuellar was fouled in the box and was awarded a penalty kick. For the moment time stood still, the two best players on either team are about to go one-on-one. Franch saved Cuellar’s kick to the right and salvaged a tie for the Cowgirls.

Without her, the Sooners w o u l d h av e b l o w n o u t Oklahoma State. After the game, Franch talked about her approach with penalty kicks. “With a [penalty kicks], you just go in and try to read the body language and try to react and hope for the best,” Franch said. “Today went my way.” Coach Matt Potter said his team finally played to its potential Sunday night. “The way we played tonight is something that

I’ve felt that we’ve had the ability to do, and we haven’t done that since we played these guys last time,” Potter said. “Make no mistake, they are a fantastic team, but to come into their ow n backyard and perform in the manner that we did, I’m very proud of our team.” Ross Stracke
