NCMC donation kicks off MCB fundraiser COLLEEN ALLISON North Colorado Medical Center recently donated $250,000 to UNC, and the university plans on using the donation to kick off a fundraising campaign for the Monfort College of Business. The donation will be used to build a new Financial Education Center in the University of Northern Colorado’s Kepner Hall, home to MCB. The Financial Education Center will replace the existing trading room, which is utilized by the award-winning Student and Foundation Fund class to manage $1 mil-

lion of the UNC Foundation’s investments. There are some big plans for the new trading room as well as other parts of Kepner Hall. According to a press release, the renovation will include technology upgrades, a new trading room, teaching lab, multi-use conference room and an auxiliary classroom. The interior entrance off the main lobby of the second floor in Kepner Hall will also be renovated. NCMC is supporting the MCB because the medical institution thinks MCB is doing a good job, said Al Dominguez, the president

and chair of NCMC’s Board of Directors. “At NCMC, we believe UNC and the Monfort College of Business are providing a great business education for future leaders in our community,” Dominguez said. “By providing funding and naming the North Colorado Medical Center Conference Room at the new Financial Education Center, NCMC publicly states its confidence in the program and appreciation for the institution.” SAFF students are finance majors who manage the $1 million portfolio. They utilize the trading room at the college,

which provides the technology, infrastructure and opportunity to make real-world investment decisions and gain practical financial experience. Last spring, the class took first place with its fund performance in an international investment competition featuring undergraduates from 24 countries. The Monfort College of Business couldn’t be happier about getting the opportunity to improve its main facility. “We are grateful to NCMC for their leadership in supporting this new Financial Education Center,” said Don Gudmundson, dean of MCB. “It will help our program remain competitive, achieve additional stature among business colleges and provide an inter-

MCB’s goal is to raise $900,000 for this project, which will start as soon as the funds are raised.

Tales share struggles, success COLLEEN ALLISON Coming to the United States from Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, Somalia, Kenya, East Africa, Burma or Thailand can have numerous struggles accompanying it, including trying to learn English and adapting to American culture. If that is hard to imagine, a clearer image of what it must be like can be seen by reading the stories of 30 families who immigrated to the Greeley area in the book “Telling Tales: Immigrants’ and

Refugees’ Stories of Transition, Resilience and Hope.” Deborah Romero, an assistant professor of Hispanic studies at UNC, served as the editor of the book, and several education majors helped put the book together. Teachers from Weld County School District 6 were involved as well. The idea for the book was inspired by El Teatro, a theater program that’s part of District 6’s Newcomers program. El Teatro allows refugee and immigrant families a chance to share

their life stories through improving others’ understanding of their native cultures and furthering the knowledge of the challenges they face living in a new and unfamiliar one. “Telling Tales” has five different sections: Family and Culture, Life and Memories, War Refugees, Transition and Resilience. The book also features a picture of every person who shares his or her story. Many of the students and families stories in the See Telling Tales, Page 5

Mission Statement The Mirror’s mission is to educate, inform and entertain the students, staff and faculty of the UNC community, and to educate the staff on the business of journalism in a college-newspaper environment.

About us The Mirror is published every Monday, Wednesday and Friday during the academic year by the Student Media Corp. It is printed by the Greeley Tribune. The first copy is free; additional copies are 50 cents each and must be purchased from The Mirror office.

Mike Wallace’s passing creates a sad day for journalists For student journalists, regardless of medium, it’s always unfortunate when we must say goodbye to one of our journalistic idols, as we had to late Saturday night when Mike Wallace passed away after 93 brilliant years. Wallace, best known for his time on CBS’ “60 Minutes” from its creation in 1968 to his last appearance on the program in 2008, set the bar for journalists and how to get the best interviews. Not known to sugarcoat anything, Wallace asked the difficult questions the public wanted answered. And most times he got more out of his inter-

view subjects than could have been expected. Wallace interviewed every United States president since John F. Kennedy except George W. Bush. He interviewed athletes, world leaders and entertainers. Maybe “interrogated” is the better word to describe his actions. Wallace practiced investigative and go-for-the-throat journalism before and during his “60 Minutes” success. And he was the best. Wallace won 21 Emmy Awards in his career, not to mention more than 10 other major journalism awards, because he kept almost 40

million viewers on the edge of their seats every Sunday evening. Wallace did everything right in his career. He became what every aspiring journalist should strive for. He didn’t become a journalist to win awards. He wanted to become a broadcaster to honor his son, Peter, who died from a hiking accident in Greece in 1962. His other son, Chris, is the host of “Fox News Sunday.” Wallace asked the tough questions and got the best answers. He demanded respect, and sometimes fear, from those he sat across from. There’s a reason ads for “60

Minutes” ran in newspapers with the tagline: “The Four Most Dreaded Words in the English Language: Mike Wallace is Here.” “There simply hasn’t been another broadcast journalist with that much talent,” Jeff Fager, chairman of CBS and executive producer of “60 Minutes,” said. “It almost didn’t matter what stories he was covering, you just wanted to hear what he would ask next.” Without Wallace, there probably wouldn’t be a “60 Minutes,” and there wouldn’t be a plateau for every student journalist to aim for.

Trayvon Martin case needs to be handled with investigation, not emotions Josh DIVINE


he Trayvon Martin situation is a wreck, and it’s not completely because George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin in Florida this February, isn’t behind bars; it’s because the reaction to this tragedy represents an ugly rush of judgment. First, the media isn’t telling the truth. Like the NBC News editor who was fired for editing a 911 call to make Zimmerman look racist, they’re coloring the truth by making it race-based. Is Zimmerman racist? Possibly, but the evidence seems to point a different direction. The media, however, char-

acterized Zimmerman as a “white Hispanic.” What does that even mean? Is President Obama a white black man? What about a Halfrican-American? “White Hispanic” seems like a ploy toward branding the situation as racist profiling because it’s easier, for many people, to envision white-on-black racism than Hispanic-on-black. I can understand why people would want this portrayed as racism. When people die, they want them remembered as victims, not perpetrators. A friend of mine was shot and killed a few days before Martin, and it was extremely painful to find out police found him to be the instigator of the situation. It’s similarly painful that the investigation has found Zimmerman acted in self-defense. But if Zimmerman’s actions weren’t racist, the response cer-

tainly has been. What else is it when protesters wear shirts saying Zimmerman is a “pussy ass cracker?” There have been online petitions calling for Zimmerman’s arrest — as if arrests could be based on popular opinion. The New Black Panther Party even posted a bounty on Zimmerman’s head, and Spike Lee exacerbated that by tweeting what he thought was Zimmerman’s address. The factors in the case look suspicious, but they look suspicious on both ends. A lot of Zimmerman’s actions seem incriminating, and a lot of Martin’s seem vindicating. But there is evidence — visible wounds and lacerations — that Martin attacked Zimmerman. Dr. Vidor Friedman, president of the Florida College of Emergency Physicians, contests that Zimmerman is lying and that his

nose doesn’t look broken, but I know from personal experience that it’s often difficult or impossible to tell by sight — especially from a photograph. It speaks volumes that the police — professional investigators — believe the case is one of self-defense. They detained Zimmerman for several hours of questioning. It could be, however, that those officers are corrupt, negligible or both, in which case the proper remedy for this terrible tragedy is to expose the corruption and call for a new investigation by a different party, not scream for the arrest or murder of a man when the best most of us have is emotion-riddled speculation. — Josh Divine is a senior mathematics major and a weekly columnist for The Mirror.

Global Culture Festival celebrates campus diversity CONOR MCCABE Students and faculty celebrated the many diverse cultures currently enrolled at UNC Friday during the Global Culture Festival in Michener Library’s Lindou Auditorium. The African Culture Club sponsored the inaugural festival featuring Students and faculty representing countries all over the world. The Global Culture Festival kicked off with a fashion show, which showcased fashion from around the world, from Saudi Arabia to Ethiopia. “It’s a great way to explore and learn from

other cultures around the world,” said Nate Mueller, a senior elementary education major. The event was hosted to raise money for Greeley’s East African Global Refugee Center, which aims to assist the refugee community and improve their quality of life. According to its website, the center improves refugees’ quality of life by implementing programs in education, health, finance, culture, integration and civil and human rights that lead to selfsufficiency and selfreliance. After the fashion show,

students watched a PowerPoint explaining the Kurdish culture, followed by a traditional dance put on by members of Native American Student Services. Members of the African Culture Club also presented dances from Ghana, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia and Rwanda. “I really enjoyed all of the performances and presentations,” said Victoria Staiano, a sophomore French and sociology major. “They were very interesting and informative.” Two professors from the College of Performing

and Visual Arts displayed two types of traditional Irish music. They performed two songs known as a “jig” and a “reel” on a fiddle and a belron. Students then watched an informative video about Saudi Arabia which was followed by a traditional Saudi Arabian dance. A Belizean dance known as the Punta Garituna was also performed. As the event concluded, the audience was invited to a reception during which an array of foods from the different countries represented at the festival were served to students.

Nursing school seeks reaccreditation COLLEEN ALLISON UNC is known across the state for its nursing program, and every 10 years the program goes through the process of reaccreditation, and that time has come once again. “Accreditation is a review by an appropriate outside agency that evaluates the quality of the educational

program,” said Kathleen LaSala, the director of the School of Nursing at the University of Northern Colorado. “Accreditation, or to be in the candidacy for initial accreditation, is required in the state of Colorado, and for students to use if they want to get a license (or) go to graduate school.” The School of Nursing has been accredited by the National League for

Condos, Apartments, and Houses Near and away from UNC campus. Pick up free vacancy list at 1719 9th Street. Call (970) 352-2998 or go to Vacancy list updated daily.

Nursing or the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, two national accreditation bodies, since the program’s inception 50 years ago, LaSala said. UNC seeks to be reaccredited for its bachelor’s of science in nursing, master’s of science in nursing and to be accredited for the program’s new Doctor of Nursing Practice, a program for students who are interested in a practice-focused doctorate. Getting an MS or a DNP in nursing would enable students to go into administrative fields, become a nursing teacher or become a nurse practitioner. “To maintain accreditation, our program has continued to revise our program See Accreditation, Page 5

Professor, students help immigrants tell stories Telling Tales from Page 2 have never been published, and Romero said being published has greatly affected their lives. “It was important for the high school kids to have their stories and voices heard,” Romero said. “Telling Tales” has also left an impression on University of Northern Colorado students because it has allowed students to realize that their neighbors and future students come from different walks of life.

“I now have a heart for people I knew very little about,” said Jenny Smith, a junior elementary education major with an emphasis in ESL. “I also learned more about their lives from being welcomed into

Program seeks crucial approval Accreditation from Page 4 over the years to meet current standards, called ‘essentials,’ meet health care standards, student and faculty needs and community needs,” LaSala said. Reaccredidation is done every five years for new programs or 10 years for existing programs. Reaccreditations are done to evaluate if the program is maintaining standards and quality. “The process involves an application, a self-study report written by the school, a review visit by CCNE reviewers, their report to the CCNE board, then a board decision,” LaSala said. “Everyone in the school is involved, including students, staff, fac-

ulty, administration and university administrators, as well as visits and comments from community agencies we work with in health care.” Everyone involved in the process is interviewed and able to give comments. Once students receive their BSN from an accredited program, they take a test to become a registered nurse. Reaccreditation is crucial for nursing students. “Accreditation is very important to the School of Nursing and university,” LaSala said. “Students do not want to go to a non-accreditation program as it limits their career opportunities. Accreditation is a mark of distinction and represents a quality program.”

their homes and was shocked at how many people live in one home, how little they have, how welcoming they are and how much they love each other.” Romero said they are currently working on publishing another book, and immigrant children are handing in their stories to their teachers for the next edition. The book can currently be bought online at for a minimum donation of $24.95, plus shipping and handling. The money goes back to the theatrical program to con-

tinue to help immigrants. However, Romero and Jessica Cooney, the director of the Newcomers program at Greeley West High School, are looking for UNC student volunteers to help bring more of the books into the community through local shops. Students interested in distributing books or helping with the Newcomers program can contact Cooney via email at Romero can be contacted at Students can also purchase a book directly through Cooney.


Students and teachers from UNC and Weld County School District 6 celebrate the release of “Telling Tales: Immigrants’ and Refugees’ Stories of Transition, Resilience and Hope” with some of the immigrant families who shared their stories.

Week of events to celebrate academic best STAFF REPORT Students and faculty at UNC will be celebrating everything the institution’s academia has to offer during its annual Academic Excellence Week.

Football adds “barking” addition to coaching staff TARIQ MOHAMMAD

Don’t be alarmed or started by that barking at home athletic events, for it’s only UNC’s strength and conditioning/sports performance coach. Lavell “Dinky” Williams was hired to his position January 12 of this year for the University of Northern Colorado and has made a distinctive bark. Williams quickly became an athlete favorite for his animated personality outside the weight room and his aggressive seriousness inside it. “When he first got here, he said some players are not going to like lifting right away, but once we get into the program and start getting stronger, seeing results, people are going to want to be in there,” said Devontae Chapple, sophomore defensive end on the football team. “Right now we don’t have mandatory lifting, but everyone is in there because

we want to get bigger, stronger and faster.” Williams came to UNC from Southern University in Louisiana, but the coaching staff at UNC made the decision to leave easy. Williams was part of head football coach Earnest Collins Jr.’s staff at Alcorn State University and already has a strong bond with the staff, which he refers to as a family. With a strong background in mental toughness,

He is definitely something we needed for this program.” Williams’ barks may be in part because he is an alumnus of the Divine Nine fraternity, Omega Psi Phi Inc. While an active member, brothers are commonly referred to as ‘Que Dogs’ because of the oral bark members are known for giving. Since Williams has

graduated, he is now an Omega Man, but his activeness in Omega Psi Phi might be the reason Williams is becoming recognized at athletic events. “I bark at football games, I bark at basketball games, I’m going to bark at soccer matches, baseball, softball, all of them,” Williams said. “But these kids know it’s me, and they know I’m there with them.”

Bears almost swept in conference opener against NJIT STAFF REPORT

Hardships fell on UNC’s baseball team, which avoided a sweep, but still lost three games, in its first action of the Great West Conference season this weekend. The University of Northern Colorado (10-16, 1-3 Great West Conference) was at risk of being swept by the New Jersey Institute of Technology (10-13, 3-1 GWC) after losses in the first

three games of the series. The Bears were down 4-2 going into the fourth inning of the final game Saturday. Freshman designated hitter Bryan Tibbitts started things off for UNC in the inning, hitting a double to score freshman left fielder Jensen Park. Tibbitts reached home two batters later before NJIT struggled to end the inning. The Bears ended up scoring nine runs, six unearned, in the fourth. The Highlanders only

got one run across the plate in the bottom of the inning and didn’t get another until the seventh. However, the lead was too big, and UNC came away with an 11-6 victory. In the final game, Tibbitts had three RBIs and senior Casey Coy had one of two triples for the Bears during the series. Opening the series, UNC had two errors in the second inning that spotted NJIT an early 6-0 lead. The Bears slowly caught up throughout the

game, scoring one in the third inning and three in the fifth, when junior catcher Derek Baum had a bases-clearing triple. UNC’s attempt to catch up fell one run short with the Bears losing 7-6 on Friday. NJIT racked up the first runs in first of two games Saturday with a three-run fifth and a fiverun sixth. All the runs were unearned in the sixth with errors by senior shortstop Adam Hilker and Park. Coy went 2-4 with an

RBI and a run in the seventh, but it was not enough for the Bears, who lost the second game of the series, 8-2. The final game of Saturday’s doubleheader had similar results, but the Bears responded quicker during the game. With the Highlanders up 2-0 after the second inning, the Bears replied with Hilker hitting a single, allowing Park to cross the plate. Park had three runs in the series. The Bears added

another run in the fourth and two in the ninth, but the Highlanders kept their lead for an 11-4 win to close out the second day of play. UNC has a game away from conference at 3 p.m. Tuesday, when it travels to Colorado Springs to face Air Force. The Bears return to Great West Conference play Friday when the New York Institute of Technology (218, 0-3 GWC) comes to Jackson Field for a fourgame set.

UNC swept over weekend, losing streak at six STAFF REPORT After starting the season strong, conference play has been a different ball game for UNC’s softball team who was swept by Utah Valley this weekend in Orem, Utah. The University of Northern Colorado (1722, 2-6 Pacific Coast Softball Conference) is now in the midst of a sixgame losing streak, the longest streak the Bears have had since last season’s 15-game losing streak. Utah Valley (24-12, 5-3) outscored the Bears in the series, 30-13. UNC was dominated in the final game of the series Saturday, losing 11-1 in the final game of that day’s doubleheader. The Bears had only two hits in the game, coming from freshman shortstop Kaitlin Flynn and junior first baseman Jamie Pollak. Both hits were in the third inning with Flynn getting an RBI double.
