OMIMCMlNkt* Mount ents in with 36 byPAUL MASON UFE Managing Editor An alleged harassment incident involving Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity members has sparked plans for a demonstration by faculty members and students. The Wednesday demonstration is intended to show support for sexual assault victims who are harassed and intimidated, said Hill Gates, one of the demonstration organizers. The demonstration stems from an Oct. 28 incident in which Sig Ep fraterity members allegedly harassed a former CMU female student, who has charged Sig Ep president Paul Bonaccinie,Birmingham senior, with sexual assault. "It's an attempt to make it clear there really is a different point of view and that people should support women sexual assault victims," said Gates, associate professor of sociology, anthropology and social work. The demonstration is planned for 11:30 a.m. • to 1:30 p.m. in front of Park Library. Gates said ; members of Women's Health and Information Project, National Organization for Women, and Isabella County Sexual Assault Task Force are among those expected to participate. Gates said the Sig Ep incident is one example of female sexual assault victims being harassed. "I don't want to emphasize one case too strongly, there are plenty of cases, but this is the most immediate one." Gates said, "I'm upset the situation has become as serious as this." , In this case, "about 100" Sig Ep members allegedly chanted an obscene poem and pounded on windows of the Phi Mu sorority house, 1808 Deming. in an attempt to intimidate the female. Isabella County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Thomas Plachta said. Also tires on the female's car were slashed. Plachta said. ♦See "Demonstration**— page 2 Program Evaluation tops Academic Senate agenda bySUSANNEPATIN UFE Staff Writer Proposed change in program evaluation is expected to be the main topic of discussion at the Academic Senate meeting Tuesday. Program evaluation is a system of evaluating the various departments at CMU. Presently the review is conducted by the Adminstration. The change calls for a review by the departments themselves. Senator Wayne Kiefer, chairman of the geography department, said the proposed change would provide for greater efficiency. "We feel the change will work fairly well," Kiefer said. In 1977 the Senate adopted the policy requiring periodic review of schools and depart ments at CMU. In, 1978, the mechanics of program evaluation and general guidelines for implementing the reviews were approved by the Senate, said Senate chairman Roger Hatch. Program evaluations are based on a five-year all- University review which is conducted by the North Central Association for college accreditation. Kiefer said. During the first year of the proposed review, departments will review their goals and objectives. In the following years planning and review are based on the goals and objectives from the following year, Kiefer said. "The first time CMU underwent an all-University review was in the 1981-82 academic year." Kiefer said. The Academic Senate sets the dates when departmental reviews are to be conducted and when they are to be sent to the Provost. The next review for CMU is scheduled for the 1985-86 academic year. Kiefer cited several reasons why CMU needs program evaluations. "One reason is to review the quality of programs in terms of whether or not a program needs more resources, he said. "We shouldn't just guess about these things. They should be evaluated as equally and objectively as possible," Kiefer said. "I have no idea as to whether the proposed Program Evaluation will work out." he said. "Maybe the whole thing won't iSee" Senate"—page 2 United Way nets $188; of an expected $225, iii iii byMARYG.GEDDES UFE SUM Writer Sixty-seven percent of the United Way pledges — more than $188,000 — have funneled into the charity at the end of its formal campaign drive Friday. United Way officials remain confident the 1985 goal of $225,000 will be reached during the campaign "mop up" during the next four weeks. Nancy Lewis, United Way chairwoman, said. The 33 percent pledges yet to be received represent people or businesses that have already been contacted and are late returning their pledges to the office. Lewis said. The S188.000 already collected puts United Way slightly ahead of its contributions last year, she added. "The campaign this year stood out in our minds because more people gave this year, and the average person gave more, about 35 percent more, this year." Lewis said. "The higher figures are in keeping with the goal of the United Way — people helping people." Lewis said she could not compare the Isabella County United Way campaign to other United Wavs in the area because figures would not be available until mid-December. "Every United Way has figures which are fluctuating right now because the campaign drive is going on throughout all areas." she said. Contributions from CMU will not start coming in until the end of November, but traditionally CMU donations have added to the success of the drives. Lewir said. "We are confident that the Student Government Association raffle will be as successful as it was last year for us." Lewis said. United Way. which funds 41 non-profit organizations in Isabella County, increased campaign drive from the S200.000 raised last year, in an attempt to provide funds to two new organizations. Volunteers for Literacy and Family Counseling Services. "Of course we would also like to increase the amount we give to all of the organizations that we fund." Lewis said. Although the formal campaign has ended. United Way welcomes donations throughout the year, Lewis said.

Paul Masson. Masson. Saginaw sophomore, said Gibbs will be at CMU to speak on "Dioxin and Public Health The Most Dangerous Chemical." The Speech will be Wednesday at 8 p.m. in Warriner Auditorium. "With all the things that have been happening in Midland I thought this was a good topic to have a speaker on." Masson said. "That's the main reason we wanted her to speak on dioxin." Gibbs. who is also an environmental lobbyist in Washington D.C.. is stopping in Mount Pleasant as part of her lecture tour aimed at educating people about chemical waste. Once a housewife.
