EARLIER FALL CLASS START DISCUSSED
SACUA eyes computer
Two films about imperialist intervention in birth control and
alternative birthing centers.
By TOM MIRGA
The Senate Advisory Committee on University
Affairs yesterday discussed how the University could
combat the rising cost of computer services, and
briefly reviewed an old proposal to move the opening
day of classes to the day after Labor Day.
The committee made no final decision on changing
the academic calendar. Traditionally the start of fall
term classes has been the first Friday after Labor
Day. The proposal to move opening day up to the day
after Labor Day - three days earlier - has been
under consideration for some time now, but has been
left in limbo due to a competing proposal from the
Office of Academic Affairs.
SACUA Chairman Shaw stated that there was a
general consensus among faculty members that the
period after Labor Day was being wasted, and that
there was a need for a more regular fall term
Literary College, and a member of the Computer and
Communication Sciences Department, addressed the
group on problems that he claimed are making the
price of computer services inordinately high.
Galler said security measures taken to keep
computerized infomation from reaching the wrong
hands may have reached a point of "overkill."
"Of course, when you handle sensitive information
you want to know who has access to it, particularly in
areas such as race, political affiliation, health, and so
forth" he said. "But the question is what level of
security should be taken and at what cost?"
LIVERMORE said the problem first came to the
group's attention because of complaints about
increases in the cost of using the University's
"One answer to the rising costs was the costs of
gecurity measures" stated Livermore. Another
computer problem he identified was that the sever
computing systems available to the Universi
community suffer from a lack of coordination. "
the end," Livermore said "the notion from within t
faculty is that the services are terrible expensive."
Galler claimed that the existence of a comput
policy committee has not been enough to alleviate t
problems. He said that the committee "h
historically been powerless" and that SACUA shou
consider raising the issues of increased control a
orderly growth with the administration. Livermo
said after the meeting that he would meet with Vi
President for Academic Affairs Harold Shapiro
take up the issue in the near future.
In another area, Livermore said that SACUA an
the Office of academic Affairs were "getting closer t
an agreement" on proposed guidelines fo
government intelligence information agenc
activities on campus, and that he planned futur
meetings with Vice President Shapiro on the matter.
