Professor, author discusses U.S. resource consumption MATT GABRIEL

British author, professor and urban planner Julian Agyeman hosted a luncheon

discussion Monday in the Centennial Hall Room in Brown Hall and a lecture the same night at the University Center about sustainability through a synergy of environ-

mental and social justice. Much of the focus of Agyeman’s topic was how the United States and other developed countries must mend their ways to better distribute resources within themselves and to other countries. He said Americans use 25 percent of the world’s resources but only constitute four or five percent of the world’s population. “I went to Haiti a couple of weeks ago, and they have nothing, and they would do anything to work for what we have, and they can’t; that isn’t available to them,” said Tori Petersen, a freshman environmental sustainability and communication studies major.

Part of the reason for this, Agyeman explained, was just how American culture is built. “Even the rich in this country look at the super rich and think ‘(America’s) not doing so well,’” Agyeman said. But at the current rate of resource consumption, modern lifestyles won’t be able to continue for very long. Agyeman said even a sweeping environmental revolution wouldn’t solve these problems. The only way a world like that could be sustained is if social justice and fairness existed alongside the new energy system, he said. Agyeman said his hope is for a better future for all kinds of cities and towns through

the improvement of environmental and social policy. “Think about the possibilities,” Agyeman said.

I went to Haiti a couple of weeks ago, and they have nothing, and they would do anything to work for what we have, and they can’t; that isn’t available to them.

— Tori Peterson, freshman environmental sustainability and communication studies major.

“What do we want Greeley to be like in 2020?” Agyeman also talked about six crucial parts of his vision to help achieve what he has deemed just sustainability, which includes planning for intercultural cities, sharing resources more fairly, well-being and happiness of the population, urban agriculture and fairer food distribution, sharing resources like cars and spatial justice. Agyeman described some places around the world, and even in the U.S., that are already achieving some of those goals or are well on the way to accomplishing them.

Office of the Provost awards faculty, departments SAVANNAH MCCULLY With the end of the semester drawing near, UNC faculty and staff gathered to celebrate the achievements of their colleagues at the 14th annual Academic Excellence Awards presented by the Office of the Provost, held in the University Center Tuesday. Eight awards were given, recognizing achievements and dedication in teaching, service, scholarship and assessment. Robbyn Wacker, the acting provost and senior vice president at the University of Northern Colorado, led the ceremony and noted the purpose of the Academic Excellence Awards is to honor the outstanding contributions of both individual faculty and staff members as well as collective departments. “The awards are a reminder of all of the great

works that everyone does, day after day,” Wacker said. “Their contributions make a difference in their students’ lives.” Each award has a unique set of requirements and expectations of its recipients. For example, recipients of the Teaching Excellence in Undergraduate Education and Teaching Excellence in Graduate Education demonstrate an ability to go the extra mile for their students, are unselfishly available for their students and implement innovative teaching methods. Awardees were Charlotte Mills from the School of Music and Melissa Henry from the School of Nursing. The award for Excellence in Faculty Service was awarded to Mark Smith from the School of Sport and Exercise Science because he demonstrated contributions to the development of faculty members, devel-

opment of curriculum and instruction and discipline in his profession. The award for Excellence in Faculty Advisement was awarded to Robert Heiny from the School of Mathematical Sciences for his achievements in career and academic advising, knowledge of university policies and his respect and concern for student progress. The award for School or Department Excellence in Service was awarded to the School of Special Education in the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences. The School of Special Education was chosen for its commitment to public service to the community, state and beyond. Harvey Rude, the director for the School of Special Education noted that faculty in the school work in local schools, the Colorado Board of Education and in national organizations and aim to establish important partnerships. The award for School or Department Excellence in Scholarship was awarded to the Department of History for its excellence in research contributions, contributions to the university and involvement of students in research. The chair of the Department of History, Joan Clinefelter, said for a small faculty that has experienced significant turnover in recent years, it has achieved numerous book and article publications and $3.6 million in grants.

The award for Excellence in Performance Assessment was awarded to both an academic department as well as a student service. The recipients were the School of Mathematics and the staff of the Cesar Chavez Cultural Center. These recipients underwent performance assessments and were able to improve based on feedback and approach their goals and missions pragmatically in order to provide the best programs for the students they serve. The final award for Academic Leadership Excellence is awarded to someone who consistently leads his or her unit toward academic excellence and serves as a role model to other faculty. This year’s recipient

was Vergie Amendola from the School of Music, a professor of music and assistant dean for the College of Performing and

Visual Arts. Amendola was congratulated for her leadership, collaboration skills and communication abilities.

Counseling unnecessary, unproductive in self-centered society Because we live in an individualistic society, we have the need to express our distress to others. However, because the people to whom we tell our emotions are themselves selfcentered people, they often do not care. People struggle to find a medium in which they can vent, and counseling strives to provide a place where people can just talk without the interruption of an individualistic voice. In effect, counseling exists because it provides a space wherein a person becomes an

confess our shame to an unknown other, so one must question the validity of the counseling profession as a whole. The counselor does nothing but listen, which has no effect because it is so passive. If a person understands himself or herself well enough, which can come about through deep thinking, serious reading and reflective journaling, then he or she will find the solutions to crippling problems. There becomes no need for a listener.

In short, one should take time to discover oneself and not run to counseling centers. As the German philosopher Friedrich Neitzche said, “The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the price of owning yourself.” Rational people should avoid the self-centered tribe to understand who and what they are — alone and with dignity.

‘America’s Daydream’ spotlights immigrants’ daily struggles SARAH MOE Students, faculty and community members gathered in Lindou Auditorium in Michener Library Monday to watch “America’s Daydream,” a documentary created by a group of UNC students. The work started last semester when about 10 students began working with their faculty adviser, Gary Swanson, the Mildred Hansen Faculty in Residence. At the start of the spring semester, some of the students left the project while others joined, leaving a group of six as the main collaborators. The topic of the film, what

the American dream means to modern Americans, was initially suggested by Swanson and enthusiastically accepted by his students. The film used a series of interviews with students, community members and professionals in the areas of culture, sociology and history and addressed what the dream is to various Americans, focusing on Greeley as an example. “You’re not guaranteed success,” said one of the interviewees in the film in summation of what the dream is. “You’re guaranteed a chance.” But much of the film revolved around immigrants, both those who chose to come to America for the

opportunities and those who came because they were facing war-torn nations or poverty. Opportunities are much fewer and farther between than they are for

people who were born in the United States, especially those in the white middle-toupper class. Many of the immigrant interviewees spoke of their

Election commissioner’s intentions raise questions Benjamin WELCH



nother UNC Student Senate election has come and gone, and chances are, you knew nothing about it. Senate Administrative Assistant Ben Schiffelbein and Director of Legislative Affairs Jamie Britt recently filed a grievance against Election Commissioner Will Schiffelbein for possibly compromising elections in some positions and failing to fulfill his duties as commissioner.

I assume “compromising elections” refers to the unlikely happenstance that many of Will’s buddies — next year’s Student Senate Director of University Relations John Pherson, Student Body President Charlie Charbonneau, Student Trustee Levi Fuller and Director of Finance Oliver Bourne — ran unopposed. This is especially curious considering at an earlier Senate meeting, Will said about 40 election packets had been distributed. Sure, some people will change their minds about running and some students will be unable to fulfill the petition requirements, but is a final number of 15 official candidates with

the four aforementioned positions unopposed a coincidence? I really doubt it, but I’m notoriously cynical. Next, Will’s implementation of basically a week of campaigning left much to be desired. It was time to vote before the ink had fully dried on most of the candidates’ campaign posters. The hastily thrown together and ill-advertised “debate” the week before elections saw a non-candidate turnout of about three. Speaking of advertising, it was virtually non-existent. Other than the articles, endorsements and profiles The Mirror published, I did not see one piece in any capacity informing students

of election times or encouraging them to vote. Will has always been unduly critical of The Mirror, which is ironic considering we managed to give elections more publicity than the man trying to run the show, the man who has been entrusted to provide sources of awareness to the fruition of effective student leadership. “My goal is to increase voter turnout by at least one,” Will said during a Student Senate meeting earlier this year. An ambitious undertaking, no doubt, but one that ultimately fell short by about 250 voters. The student judiciary isn’t off the hook, either. They agreed that Will neglected to fulfill his duties as election

commissioner but said results will stand as-is. Perhaps its reasoning is that there isn’t much time remaining in the semester to hold a special election. Considering both last year’s results and those of the 2010 special election were announced in late April, there could have been plenty of time for a special election if some haste had been emphasized. Or, perhaps, their reasoning had to do with the fact that the student judiciary chief justice is Nick Atzenbeck, who is a member of Will’s fraternity, Pi Kappa Phi. Now there’s a conflict of interest if I’ve ever seen one.

The bottom line is if you’re going to find someone guilty of misconduct, you have to administer some sort of assuaging action. As election commissioner, Will exponentially neglected his duties, and that’s just for the advertising portion of the job description. If indeed he did find ways to ensure his friends were given a red carpet to the front door, that would be disgusting on a level I will not expand upon without solid evidence. It says something, though, when your own brother is concerned about your integrity. — Benjamin Welch is a senior journalism and criminal justice major and former editor-in-chief of The Mirror.

University Program Council hosts final spring Open Mic Night


Allyson Snyder sings an a capella version of Miranda Lamber t’s “More Like Her” at Monday’s Open Mic Night in the University Center. ALEXANDRIA VASQUEZ The University Program Council hosted the last Open Mic Night of the semester Monday at

the University Center Fireside Lounge, and there was a bittersweet feeling in the air as the night came to a close. Since its inception in 2009, Open Mic Night has

become a permanent fixture in student life. Every two weeks, it seems to provide a safe space for both seasoned performers and those newer to the entertainment circuit by letting their creative juices flow in front of their peers. Monday was no exception. Many of those who approached the stage were veterans who didn’t seem to have any problems with letting loose or busting out their instruments. There was a quirky rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” done on piano and an acoustic cover of Leon Russell’s 1971 tune “A Song For

You”that had the audience entranced. At one point, UPC arts and entertainment coordinator Dan Barton even jumped on stage to help belt out the lyrics to Queen’s classic anthem “We Will Rock You.” Aryn Ferris, a sophomore music major, said performing one of her original songs at Open Mic Night provided an avenue for her to get over her stage fright. She has performed with high school choirs and written her own lyrics for the past four years but says she had never performed her own piece until Monday.

“It was nerve-wracking,” Ferris said. “But it felt amazing to get back out there.” Musical duo Ruby Manoles and Devon Hildebrandt also took to the stage with an original piece. Manoles, a freshman Spanish education major, and Hildebrandt, a freshman music business major, say they have classes together but that they actually met at an Open Mic Night. The two hit it off and began writing music together. “It’s an outlet for kind of just getting everything out there,” Hildebrandt said. “It transcends lan-

guage.” It seems for both of them, the artistic process is something deeply personal that can be shared with the audience. “When you play music, you can feel the emotion that the artist wants to communicate,” Manoles said. Hildebrandt said in addition to his new friendship, Open Mic Night has offered them new opportunities; he was invited to perform at this year’s Winter Jam, an event on campus dedicated to educating the community about mental health.

Langworthy Theatre takes audiences to modern India, medieval England STAFF REPORT The College of Performing and Visual Arts will be presenting theater lovers with the bear necessities this week. Andrea Moon, a professor of theater at UNC, will direct an adaptation of the classic Victorian children’s tale, Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book.” PVA is performing a version of the classic story, called “Jungalbook,” written by Edward Mast, and it centers on the laws of the jungle. According to Moon, Mast’s version of

Kipling’s book differs from other variations of the story. “When I first read this adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s ‘The Jungle Book,’ it surprised me how different it was from the Disney version, and I loved it immediately,” Moon said in a press release. “‘Jungalbook’ takes on real and relevant issues that all people — young, old and in-between — face in their everyday lives: bullying, being ostracized, feeling like you don’t belong, dealing with the consequences of your actions, losing someone you love and fac-

ing who you really are.” One important law of the animal society in this play is that animals do not kill humans, so when the bear Baloo discovers tigers have devoured the parents of a boy, Mowgli, who is raised by wolves, he expresses abject horror. Eventually, Mowgli must decide to kill the tiger that killed his parents, breaking sacred jungle law and entering the world of humans. “Jungalbook” runs at 2 p.m. from Thursday-Friday in Fraiser Hall’s Langworthy Theatre. Also in Langworthy

Theatre is a play not set in the jungles of India but the political sphere of medieval England.

The Bears finished with a final carded score of 880, tying the Big Sky record set by Portland State last year. Going into the tournament, the Bears were ranked seventh in the Big Sky, even though the team ended in third during last year’s tournament and had all five members return this season. Sacramento State entered Tuesday with a twostroke lead over the Bears. UNC senior Chelsea Silvers and Portland State senior Tiffany Schoning tied for second, falling behind Carleigh by one stroke. The Silvers sisters were

the only Bears to place in single digits in the championship. Next in line were senior Ali Nelson and junior Libby Avery, who were in a three-way tie for 18th with Montana State junior Molly Dorans. Nelson shot a 77, 75 and 77 between the three days, respectively. Avery’s best day was Tuesday, when she shot a 74. Junior Hannah McNeley ended in a tie for 21st with Weber State freshman Alli Cluff. During the final day, the Bears were one shot shy of the school-record round score of 290, which the team recorded Sunday during the first round of the tournament. After Monday’s round, the Chelsea led the Bears, shooting an even-par 72.

Chelsea was tied in second Schoning. Sacramento State freshman Lexie Hall was sitting in first place after shooting a career-best 69. Carleigh finished Monday close to her sister, taking fourth, ending with an even-par 144 between

the first two days. The Silvers sisters were named to the AllTournament team. UNC now has an automatic bid to the NCAA West Regional. The regional will take place May 10-12 at the Colorado Nation Golf Club in Erie.

Wilkinson said it would be difficult to leave her family away from home as soon as the season ends. “Being part of a team is extremely special,” Wilkinson said. “The family atmosphere on the team is one of a kind.” Wilkinson’s teammates said they will miss her fielding, her hitting, her friendship and most of all her leadership. As one of only three seniors on a freshman-laden squad, her voice and demeanor helped relax or

inspire her teammates as ing,” Montgomery said.

a freshman and has started in every game since her sophomore season. Wilkinson has been named Pacific Coast Softball Conference player of the week three times, a member of the PCSC Commissioner’s Honor Roll twice, a member of the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District Team and PCSC AllMountain Division Honorable Mention during her time as a Bear. At the plate, Wilkinson has accumulated 88 RBIs and 12 home runs in her career, but she said a legacy is the most important thing a player can leave. “It’s not about the records you set or the

amount of hits you get,” Wilkinson said. “I think it’s the impact you have on the people.” Wilkinson’s graduation and departure from the team, Montgomery said, cannot be expressed enough. “You can’t ever replace a kid like Erin,” Montgomery said.

(She’s) probably one of my favorite players to have ever been around and certainly one of my greatest leaders of all time in my 20 years of coaching.
