I -------------February 0 1994 -1-Vlume I-Number 7 -------------New Coli Hosts SACS Accr itation Team Roughly every ten years, American colleges and uni versities undergo an accreditation process administered by one of the recognized bodies responsible for monitoring the quality of higher education Tllis year it has been the tun of USF to be re-accredited by the Southern Association of Col leges and Schools (SACS). At our request ew College was allowed to prepare its own doc uments required for the a c creditation process and we were assured that the site visiting t e am would be made up of persons familiar with small liberal ans colleges. The five-member team that visited New College on January 19 and 20 was made up of faculty and staf from such schools as Davidson, Randolph Macon, and the Univef sity of the South at Sewanee. The SACS team made excellent use of their two days, meeting with a wide range of faculty, students, administra tors, and representatives of the Alumnae/i Association and the ew College Foundation. Let me thank everyone who helped out in this process-often on very short notice-with a special thanks to the laige group of students who made it to a 9:00a. m meeting during ISP! New College came through the process with flying colors and is assured of re-accreditation In keeping with the SACS fonnat of offering recommendations (which must be addressed), "suggestions," (which may or may not be ad dressed), and commendations" (which simply to be en joyed), the visitation team recommended some technical changes in certain New College publications (such as the in clusion of a statement of its accreditation!) and the continued upgrading of campus computing resources. They also recommended that we continue planning for upgraded student life activities. Suggestions" included keeping as a top prior ity the boosting of faculty salaries and the creation of a full time career development position. For the most part, the "recommendations and "suggestions either confrnned cer tain things we already knew (such as our low faculty salaries) or brought to our attention certain technical glitches in .:!cord keeping and administration Pa11icularly gratifying were the three "commendations" "Accreditation" Conti11ued on page 2 Harassment Policy Discussed ---------On Wednesday, Februaty 2nd some twcnty -fi,t 1\:tw College students got together to discuss the pfjb\<:m of st"xual viol e n c e on this campus and how to address it in tlifi.<..rt"nt and b e tter ways than it has been in the past. TI1e gnup met for abo ut two hours and talked about possibilities ranging from awareness raising seminars during Orientation to a cifk campus policy for dealing with cases of rap<.., assault, and sexual harassment. TI1ere was a diversity of opinions on how to tackle the issues, especially \vhcnever the term mandatory" came up, but there was on<: thing that all the participants agreed upon: sexual violence does occur at New College (a lot more than many of us may think), and it needs to be dealt with seriously and comprehcn ivdy. The group decided that the problem should bl' ad dressed in four basic ways : through the formulation of a com prehensive written policy, through increased awareness anti education programs, through the establishment of some sort of resource for survivors of sexual violence, and tl11ough a trial run of the Antioch Collegl.! step-by-step consent pK>to col. The policy group will be working with facully llH.'Ill bers and administrators in order to develop a wrilten policy that will explicitly define what the different sexual offc:n:-.<.\ are, how charges against a student or faculty member will be reviewed, and what sanctions will be taken an of fender The people interested in education and awan:ness will be developing programs for both Orientation and tlllough out the year that will be designed to educate both men and women about sexual violence, how and why it occurs. anti how to prevent it. The third group will be working to ultimately c:stab lish a safe place" on campus for survivors of sexual vio lence, staffed by trained counselors, and more immediately, to train a network of fellow students in crisis intervention The final group will be setting up a voluntary trial run of the Antioch policy, wherein sexual partrKr. arc re quired to obtain verbal consent committing any sexual "Harrassment Polley" Continued on page 2

New College Radio Project Update 4 fluk ?tddt -----------It is time for Spring allocations and people ac wondering what became of the $6,000 allocated to the Radio Poject last semester. The good news is that we didn' t spend any of it. 'I11e bad news is that we don' t have a radio station yet. Obvious summaries aside, the SAC agreed at the end of last semester to let the money roll over until the second week in March. If there is no license to puchase by that time, the money is once again up for grabs. A small percentage of the m oney ($200 400) is needed to pay the FCC when we tum in the application for a waiver of the mandatory 100 -watt FM station rule. Unfortunaley, we will not have the results of that application for at least a year and a half. In the meantime, our most viable option for on air transmission is on an AM frequency Several AM stations in the area are undergoing financial restructuring and there is a possibility we could buy or rent to own" an AM license. As of yet my inquiries into actually buying one of these stations' licenses have been met with already distressed station man :lgtrs anJ replies of Soundc; good, cr ; um, you'll need to talk to the owner in Connecticut who doesn' t want his addcss released right now," and other such responses. The focal problem here is that most of the owners of these stations are extremely wealthy and have little time to speak to college students. Personally, I think s omeone will be willing to sell if I can talk to him or her when they have just beeen handed another week' s report of declining ratings and lost dollars. Amy Laitinen infom1ed me that the SAC and general student body would have to decide if the money could be us('d toward the purchase of an AM station since the money was originally allocated for an FM station. People ac scared of AM bccaw;e it remincl<> them of geriatrics and it has a monaural scratchy sound. fortunately, the newer AM modulators produce stereophonic sound and filter much of the noise so the end result is just short of stereo. (Of course, the end result also depends on the quality of your receiver at home. ) In fact as more n o n profit organizations get squeezed out of the dial by strict FCC rules and powetful private interest groups. they are turning to the AM waves for sanctuary. Amy also said people would like the money for other dubs and activities By the time this article is printed, we should have a much better idea of the financial standi ngs of the local stations and whether or not any will be willing t o sell. Although I am personally working as hard as I can, and telephoning as many contacts as possible thee is no guaran-. tee we will know for sure if there is a seller in a week and a }!O! Page 3 Peter Matthieson on Fishermen and How To Kill N e ighbors 4 ------------Renowned author Peter Matthieson spoke a full house at Sainer Auditorium last \l:ednesday night. Earlier in the aftenoon, he had visited with students and faculty in an informal meeting at Cook Hall Manhieson is a naturalist novelist, joumalist, and Zen Monk. His novels have included At Play 111 tbe Fields of the Lord, Far Tortuga In the Spi,-tt of Crazy Horse, and lndfan Country. In F l orida to visit his 95-year old father and do research for a novel he took time out to speak on campus. Approximatley 2W people, many of them visitors f10m outside the school, were in attendence to listen to Matthieson. n1e author began speaking about two plt'pared topics: t h e plight of commerical fishermen in Florida and the nati o n, and about his research for one of his latest novels before open ing the floor to audience questions. Matthieson stated that commcridal fishermen a r e a group that we should be, prizing rather than pushing o f the landscape." Matthieson a former commercia l fisherman be lieves that commercial fishermen are being unfairly h ounded for the tremendous reduction in fish stocks, which comes from mostly large companies and fisheries a s well as the pol luted state of the cnviroment. Sports fishermen, he continued, have been campaign ing for years to be tl1e only ones allowed to fish certain kinds of fish that the commercial fisherman rega r d as money fis h Sports fisherman with enviromental groups and other special interests are succeeding in banning the use of drift nets-the only way commercial fishermen can earn enough money. I !e refered to the enviromental groups going after commcrdal fishermen as suffering from "green fundamentalism." Matthiesen also spoke briefly about his novel Killing Mister Watson, highlighting how the idea first came to hi m the tria l s he' s had writing it, and some of the JCsearch done for it. TI1e novel tells the true story of man who was executed by his neighbors in 1910 in southwest Florida Earlier in the day Matthieson met with between 2S and 30 assorted students and faculty in Cook Ha ll. fie fielded a variety of questi o ns including his feelings on writing. th e experience of having AI Play tn tbe Fields of the Lon:t m a d e into a movie, and the direction he feels Buddhism will tak e in half. 'I11e project is of such size and importance, that if no solid results are available by allocations time, will be worth America. waiting one month before repossessing the project funds.

Mark' News IIi, I'm Mark Breimhorst and I am the new Student Activities CoordinaLOr I work in the office that used to be the 1CSA, Campus Ministries, and CSL offices I also live in the Viking monostory 108.

Community Building: I hope to make the New College student community more united and less atomistic. I don't want to twist anybody's ann, but I want those students who desire a community to feel more at home and included. I would be very happy if a greater sense of responsibility was somehow transmiued among the students. Communication: I want to work on the methods by which Nl..'w College community members (faculty, students, and staO communicate within and between those g10ups. Hopefully, I can arrange it so programs will not conflict and everyone will know what is going on any time they want to get moe in vohcd. Organizational Support: I am also here to advise and support all student activities in running smoothly. This has meant, among other things, coaching the College Bowl team, working with Ed and Camilla, and helping the Center For Service Learning in it's granr writing and networking endeavors.

S Queer By Any Other Name ----------Gender and sexual orientation at New College a11. 1n some ways loose categories, and in other way,.., rigtdly constructed categories We live in a society which believes :-tnmgly in di chotomies: good/evil, modemism/postmoderni m. g.ty/ straight, and male/female. Gender suffers from this l'itht'r / o r classification Either an individual is a woman or an indi vidual is a man. Femaleness has been constn.tll<:d a::. nuny things: reproductive organs, nunuring, and many other ts sentialist qualities. There are many women that do not 11.1 \'(' all or any of these attributes Docs thi:. make th<:m unwomanly or manly? There are also many men that do not fit into an essentialist version of what maleness is It s<..em to t:a:-on then that gender is not a terribly useful category. The rat egory may work for some, but cenainly not for all peopk. Sexual orientation is another tricky category. Otw is gay, straight, bisexual, asexual, or omnisexual. C:tt<..gorie ., of sexual orientation can be very useful for soml' issues: (;ar pride, Bi pride, or Het pride. It seems to me that sexuality is a spectrum of desires rather than Onl rigid way to act !low many heterosexuals have ever had thoughts about som< of th eir own sex? How many gay p<:opk h:tn: tver thoughts about someone of the opposite sex? Who at t'W College has ever been attracted to anyone who is not within their sexual orientation group? Tht:re are soml..'/many JX'oplc who are only attracted to people within their orknta tion group. There are some/many people who lind that tltl'ir carefully constructed sexual orientation is being deconstml t<:d by some alternate sexual attraction. lnere are people who disdain the use of the wold "queer". I personally believe that th<: word qlK'tr i.s an c.m powering one whid1 covers a variety of sexual orientati ons. An individual can !able themselves queer and any other explanations. Sexual orientation is desire A celibat<..' \\'Oman wlto desires other women is as much a le bian as a woman who is actively engaging in sexual inten:oursc with anothtr wom.m. Queer is not just acting queer, but desiring que<..r. 11ter(' are queers who are political, and thosl' who an. non-politictl. There are queers in monogamous those in no relationships, those who are celibate, and tl10..,e in queer relationships. Everyone's gender and sexual orientation is cora:<.l; it is where that individual is at in this moment in time one should !able another person's orientation as incomplete or wrong. A person's sexual orientation or gender may nu(' tuate in the course of a year or even a day. All one can do i::. to enjoy one's own sexual orientation. Febmary 7, 1994


)ft;JI Page 6 F eRinist Thought If .LuLu -----------The purpose of this column is not to push any par:trctrlar feminism, but merely to offer a glimpse at some of the many diffignifiutnt; it is precisely like the "equal but separate" formula of the jim Crow laws aimed at the orth American 'q.:roe<>. 1 i well-know. this so called equalitarian gation has re ulted only in the most extreme discrimination. The similarity just noted is in no way due to chance, for wh<.ther it is a race, a caste, a class, or a sex that is reduced to a position of inferiority the methods of justification are th<. same The eternal feminine" corresponds to the black oul and to the jewish character True, the jewish prob krn is on the whole very different from the other two--to the anti-semite the jew is not so much an inferior as he is an erwmy for whom there is to be granted no place on earth, for "horn annihilation is the fate desired.
