Law Prof. Robert L. Knauss
has been elected chairman of
the Senate Advisory Committee
on University Affairs { SACUA ..
the executive committee of the
faculty Senate Assembly.
Knauss, who secedes Educa-
tion Prof. Joseph Payne. was se-
lected Monday by SACUA.
In the ten years he has been
at the University. Knauss has
consistently been active in Uni-
versity affairs. Most recently.
Knauss was instrumental in
drafting a set of proposed Re-
gental bylaws which aimed at
increasing the role of students
in University decision and rule
When asked recently about

the faculty's role at the Univer-
sity, Knauss said, "Relatively
speaking, the faculty here has a
stronger voice in University af-
fairs than faculties at other
schools. This Is one of the main
reasons I feel we ye had relative
peace on campus with n~o violent
police confrontation-s to date."
In light of this Increased in-
volvement, Knauss expressed
some dissatisfaction with the
Regents autonomous decisions
on conduct rules for students.,
"The Regents were out-of-char-
acter to pass the conduct rules
without consulting the faculty
mn view of the past years of fac-
ulty participation," he said
"There has been a change in
the faculty's role at the Univer-

shty in the last few years as fac-
ulty involvement wiith student
concerrns has continually in-
creased.," he continued. "Much
of this involvement Is in re-
sponse to student-motivated is-
sues, such as the bookstore in-
cident last fall.-
Knauss expain~ed that the fac-
ulty s attitude towards the Uni-
versity's role within our society
has chan~ged in the last few
years. as evidenced by its ;:ar-
ticipation in the Vietnam rnora-
torium activities.
