Letters to the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 14 January 1987
Letters to the Editor Basketball Fever...Catch It!!! To The Editor: Hey students, faculty, administration, staff and community...There's a new excitement here at Penn State, Harrisburg. After years of a onagain, off-again nobly played but unsuccessful basketball program, this year's 1986-87 Capital College Lions are playing like a team possessed with a 6-1 (at this writing) record and three games scoring over 100 points. The basketball action is fast, balanced, intelligent and successful. What's even more gratifying is that our players are student/athletes and not athlete/students. We have no athletic scholarships, so these kids are really putting out!!! Under new head coach Brian Gauger (a veteran of the lean roundball years), every player is contributing to this year's successful effort. What makes matters even more exciting is that most of the team are juniors and will be back next year. Gang, the price is rightall home games are free!! Commuters, bring your family and ...
Disagrees That Administrative Staff Rude [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 14 January 1987
Disagrees That Administrative Staff Rude Dear Editor: A recent letter in the paper commented on the " ...rudeness, impoliteness, and insensitivity of some of the secretarial staff..." The writer indicated that she surveyed these " ...poor attitudes...." with about 50 students and over half of those surveyed "...encountered unnecessary and undeserving V\atc\s\\"\p or rudeness..." from some of the administrative employees in the Olmsted Building. As a ~ "walk-on" graduate student since August, 1982, at this university, I have had many an opportunity to observe and evaluate its employees. Therefore, 1 must write a defense of these employees because in over four years of seeking out answers to questions I have not encountered the "...extremely poor attitudes..." complained about in the recent letter. My personal experiences, as well as other students I have talked to, has been one of positive vibrations from these same employees. Also I must raise the question about the validi...
Staff is courteous, Helpful [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 14 January 1987
Staff is courteous, Helpful Dear Editor: This is a reply to the letter written by Christine Collins, full-time student, which was printed in the December 10 issue of the Capital Times. I am a returning fulltime student in the Humanities Program and I don't feel that I suffer fools any more gladly than I did when I was younger. I have had occasion during the first semester of my Junior year to use the services of nearly all of the administrative offices in the Olmsted Building. I find the employees, both male and female, helpful and mannerly. In fact, they have gone out of their way to explain and/or to refer me to the proper office. I sincerely hope that you receive a number of letters questioning this unfortunate attitude of Miss Collins. There are unanswered questions that occur to me, such as, what is her major, and what small town does she come from? Sincerely, Jean Eileen Witthoft

HACC/PSU Sign Articulation Agreement for Criminal Justice By Denise Reinas An articulation agreement between HACC and Penn State at Harrisburg was signed and became effective on January 1, 1987. The purpose of the agreement is so students can obtain a four-year baccalaureate degree in Criminal Justice by taking at HACC the credit hours which fulfill the admissions and graduation requirements at Penn State at Harrisburg. There already is a general articulation agreement between the two colleges, but this is the first real effort regarding a specific program.

We also want to work with other fouryear institutions," said Dr. John Ramirez, coordinator of the Criminal Justice program at Penn State at Harrisburg.

PARDON US! [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
PARDON US! In the January 14 issue of the Capital Times, in the article "Professors Defend Engineering Surcharge," Professor Cheryl Ebel, Electrical Engineering Technology faculty, was misquoted. In a recent interview, Professor Ebel explained that in the past, the EET program has received a six-year accreditation. Following the last review of the EET program in 1985, the accreditation board for engineering technology granted the EET program a four year accreditation with a letter. The actual accreditation process and its evaluation is quite detailed. In general terms, a six-year accreditation is considered exceptional. Most schools receive the fouryear accreditation with a letter. This indicated that some changes in the department are required. A four-year accreditation with a visit indicates that ABET, the Accreditation Board for Engineering Technology, will return to the school to evaluate measures taken to meet accreditation standards. Numerous factors contribute to a scho...

Proposed Library Learning Center Comes Under Fire [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
Proposed Library Learning Center Comes Under Fire By Jan Trovers Controversy is building on the proposed $15 million library at Penn State University, Harrisburg. The new library, thought long overdue by members of the campus, has generated two arguments, one with the location and the other with the inclusion of a computer center within the building. The physical plant master plan, recently presented to the college community by H2L2 Master Planners, calls for the three story library learning center (library plus computer center) to be located adjacent to the CUB, with walkways to connect it to the Olmsted Building. For a campus with the majority of classes in one building, many have questioned, both during the presentation and since, why the library isn't more centrally located. According to Douglas Steele, H2L2, an attempt was made to create a totally balanced campus atmosphere. Agreeing with this reasoning, Robert Graham, associate provost and associate dean of faculty, la...
"Isms" Committee Addressing Problems of Discrimination [Newspaper Article] — Capitol Times — 4 February 1987
"Isms" Committee Addressing Problems of Discrimination By Tom McGovern A committee has been put together to handle what the college considers to be a growing number of complaints that are discriminatory and demeaning in nature. The group, known as the "Isms" committee, wants to organize a task force that will avert problems before they arise, rather than respond to complaints once they are lodged. Dr. Jerry South, associate provost and director of student affairs, heads the committee. His office reports approximately SO complaints in the last few years that involve sexism, racism, and other discriminatory behaviors based upon a person's ethnic, age, religious or physical disability status. The committee believes this to be only a small portion of the actual amount of incidents that have occurred on campus, and that because of a lack of information, it will be difficult to develop strategies to address the problem. Dr. Robert Munzenrider, a faculty member of the "Isms" comm...
