Clinton unveils national
service financial aid plan

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - President
Clinton pledged yesterday torevolutionize
college aid by allowing students to repay
loans through community work, casting his
ambitious national service plan as a 1990s
GI Bill to "change America forever and for
the better."
Starting with a modest 1,000 slots this
summer and growing to 100,000 or more
within four years, the program will make
college affordable to all while setting off a
wave of involvement in education, health,
safety and environmental projects, Clinton
predicted.
"All across America we have problems
that demand our common attention," Clin-
ton said. "National service is nothing less
than the American way to change
America."
He chose the 32nd anniversary of Presi-
dent Kennedy's creation of the Peace Corps
to formally propose the plan as president.
Congressional approval would be required.
Aides say many details are still unclear,
from how much a student would be able to
borrow to how big a stipend to pay young
people while they work off their loans.
Clinton's plan is designed to dramati-
cally reshape federal student aid programs
and offer young Americans opportunities to
perform such community service as work-
ing in inner-city children's health and drug
clinics, tutoring in literacy programs and

walking streets in neighborhood police
corps.
The president himself set high expecta-
tions for the initiative, framing the an-
nouncement as "one I hope will be a truly '
historic moment in our nation's history."
He compared it to the GI Bill's offer of ed-
ucation to enlisted personnel returning from
World War II.
After a pilot project of 1,000 or so stu-
dents this summer - paid for with $15 mil-
lion in Clinton's economic stimulus pack-
age - the president proposes spending
$7.4 billion over the next four years,
building from 25,000 service slots in 1994
to more than 100,000 in 1997. Funding
would then increase in the following years
based on demand and the program's
performance.
One year of service would qualify stu-
dents for two years of college loans.
Students who chose not to enter public
service could pay back loans based on a
percentage of their income, which Clinton
said would encourage graduates to enter
lower-paying but critical professions such
as teaching and working in community
health clinics.
Some union leaders have expressed
concern that the program would take jobs
away from adults and give them to com-

Reps. respond
to service plan
by Andrew Taylor
Daily Government Reporter
President Clinton made his first com-
prehensive speech yesterday about the
proposed national service program for
college students. Now all he had to do is
push the plan through Congress.
The first stop on this journey will be
the U.S. House Committee on Education
and Labor - chaired by Rep. Bill Ford
(D-Ypsilanti).
Ford said he is optimistic about de-
veloping the details of the plan with the
Clinton administration. He said the bill
will be introduced soon.
Clinton's proposed program would
place participants in youth corps. Stu-
dents would work in jobs such as teach-
ing and assisting in public schools,
staffing health clinics, joining the police
force, working on pollution control pro-
jects and recycling products.
Students would receive a minimum-
wage stipend, child care benefits if neces-
sary, and student loan forgiveness of up
to $10,000 for each of the two years of

Six University faculty members were
chosen to serve on hearing panels that will
respond to complaints brought under the
Statement of Student Rights and
Responsibilities.
The Office of Student Affairs will as-
sign each faculty member to a hearing
panel with six randomly chosen students. A
new panel will be chosen for each case.
The faculty members are:
Violet Barkauskas, associate
professor in the School of Nursing;
Ruth Barnard, associate professor in
the School of Nursing;
Peter Bauland, associate professor of
English;
Sallie Churchill, professor in the
School of Social Work;
Norman Weiner, professor in the
College of Pharmacy; and,
Reg Williams, associate professor in
the School of Nursing.
Before Spring Break, the Office of
Student Affairs mailed letters to 50 students

selected randomly by the Registrar's Office
to serve on the panels.
As of yesterday, 23 students had agreed
to serve, nine declined and the remaining
18 had not yet responded. Student names
may be released within the week.
Mary Lou Antieau, assistant to the vice
president for student affairs, said students
who declined to serve on the panels did so
because they could not attend the training
session or they did not have the time due to
academic responsibilities.
"No one said, 'I think this is a stupid
policy and I don't want to be a part of it,"'
Antieau said. She serves as judicial advisor
of the policy.
Faculty members had mixed reactions to
their appointments.
Barnard said serving on the hearing
panel is necessary but not fun.
"Somebody has to help provide the cli-
mate for a fair decision by a jury of peers.
Sometimes it takes more time than you like
but I suppose that's justice," Barnard said.
"Not that I have any desire to be included
in this, but I do believe student rights are

very important."
Bauland said he agreed to serve on the
panel because he is curious about the poli-
cy's future.
"I would like to see this be an institution
of justice and not enforcement," he said.
"Maybe it can do some good. Maybe it can
work, and I can help it work."
Faculty members were nominated by
their peers to serve on the panel. A faculty-
student relations committee then presented
a list of nominees to the Office of Student
Affairs.
The office then mailed letters to these
faculty members notifying them of their
nomination. Faculty who wanted to serve
on the committee responded to Antieau.
Faculty members serve as panel facilita-
tors for two-year terms and they do not
have voting power. Despite the specified
term, Bauland said he feels no obligation to
remain on a panel if he does not like the
process.
"I'm going to try and find out what this
is about," Bauland said. "I'm not commit-
