NCAA committee makes ruling on
The National Collegiate Athletic Association's
Executive Committee Friday adopted a new policy to keep member
institutions from displaying what it termed "hostile and abusive"
racial/ethnic/national origin mascots, nicknames or imagery at any
of the 88 NCAA championships. The committee also approved
recommended best practices for schools who continue to use Native
American mascots and nicknames in their athletic programs.
This action follows an NCAA-directed survey of institutions who use
mascots or nicknames with Native American origins.

guide includes two sections: an index of faculty members' academic topics, grouped by department, and a directory of full-time faculty and selected
administrative staff members. Faculty members
are encouraged to watch their e-mail for a link to the draft copy,
along with instructions for providing updated information.

divorced, with children; working professional; and those who are

enrich nontraditional students' educational experience by connecting
