Pictorial HistoryofRonald ReaganAnnouncementofAlzheimer's Disease November 5, 1994Page 1ofl .." My fellow Americans, I have recently been told that I am oneofthe millionsofAmericans who will be afflicted with Alzheimer's disease Upon learning this news, Nancy and I had to decide whether as private citizens we would keep this a private matter or whetherwewould make this news known in a public way. In the past, Nancy suffered from breast cancer and I had my cancer surgeries. We found through our open disclosures we were able to raise public awareness. We were happy that as a result, many more people underwent testing. They were treated in early stages and able to return to nonnal, healthy lives. So nowwefeel it is important to share it with you. In opening our hearts,wehope this might promote greater awarenessofthis condition. Perhaps it will encourage a clearer understandingofthe individuals and families who are affected by it. At the moment I feeljusttine. I intend to live the remainderofthe years God gives meonthis Earth doing the things I have always done. I will continue to share life'sjOUTIley with my beloved Nancy and my family. I plan to enjoy the great outdoors and stay in touch with my friends and supporters. Unfortunately, as Alzheimer's disease progresses, the family often bears a heavy burden. I only wish there was some way I could spare Nancy from this painful experience. When the time comes, I am confident that with your help she will face it with faith and courage. In closing, let me thank you, the American people, for givingmethe great honorofallowing me to serve as your president. When the Lord calls me home, whenever that day may be, Iwillleave with the greatest love for this countryofours and eternal optimism for its future. I now begin the journey that will lead me into thesunsetofmy life. I know that for America there will always be a bright dawn ahead. Thank you, my friends. May God always bless you. llUl'.11 v l\,;lUl1i1lLIUllWlt:\,;ny.\,;UIUl1.l.li1l1t:1I"tV"t/lWi:1U.llllll

SAFE Zones Confidentiality Agreement1.SAFE Zone is a place to peacefully discuss sensitive issues. I fully realize that I can speak my opinion on any subjectwithout regardtorace, religion, culture, sex, religion, veterans status, disability, academic year or any other category. However, all comments aretobe in the spirit of establishing a proper discourse, not a personal argument. Yet I fully realize that some things said in the SAFE Zone may hurt me emotionally. 2.3.I will not personally attack, physically or emotionally any person inmySAFE Zone group in or out of SAFE Zone. I will, with words only, attack or defend certain points of view. I agree that the conclusionofeach SAFE Zone session will include my participation in the thinking and/ormypersonalactions where I will apply what I have learned in SAFE Zones. I will not use SAFE Zoneasa place to let off steam and notdoanythingtomake reconciliation amongst different groups a reality. 4. I agree that I will not link a particular persontoa particular comment in SAFE Zone in the legal context of SAFE Zones. I am free to discuss issues outside of SAFE Zone that have beenbrought up in the session but I will not use comments that insinuate a particular person brought up a particular point, whether that pointis"positive" or "negative."5.I agree that upon entering the SAFE Zone session, I will shake hands with all the participants in the session and will also shake hands with each and every person in the session upon conclusion of each SAFE Zone session. 6. I agree that despite differencesofopiniononissues, the most important aspectofSAFE Zones that I take with me is the fact that as people we are to respect and love each other regardless of belief.

"The IRS A, the Intramural Sports Association, is a SA organization set uptobe a 23. club.Ithas not operated like that due to a lackofstudent participation in the 24. governing structureofthe organization and lacks consistent service to the studentsof25. Oswego state and other memberofthe college community. There are a lotofbenefits 26. thattheIRSA provides some being annual athletic rec. programs which manyofthe27. residence halls participate in, someSAorganizations utilize someofthe services that 28. the program provides. Along with that it provides a healthy positive social life for the 29. studentsofOswego. With a majorityofthe students using the services. This is oneof30.ourbiggest sellers in regards to wereSAmoney goes.Itis oneofthe largest 31. intramural programs in the SUNY system. Someofthe drawbacks in the way the 32. IRSA was set up was it became a front organization, meaning that it was there to 33. provide money for the program to continue, and because students did not take the 34. opportunity to take the leadership roles to learn and allocate the money properly. The 35. administrationofthe college did have to pickupthe slack from timetotime. Thishas36. caused problems betweenSAand the administration. 79%ofthe budget goesto37. payroll, which is not necessarily the problem,butwhenSAis providing the funds to 38. hire students but then have no control over them. Oneofthe goals wheninofficewas39. to change this. Submitted a 10 page proposal to Dr. Hughs, Dr. Shafenberger and 40. Sandy Keenan that basically stated to keep the name IRS A the same but handthe41. money over to campus life and let them administer program that wayorfind another 42. alternative. Through discussion we came up with a contract that willbegood for all 43. organizations involved.Itwill secure this beneficial program. Will met individually 44. with anyone to go into detail. 45. 46. Vice President Joe Storch: Thanks from KimandMaryJo to the senators for doing a 47. greatjobwith the amendment proposal forms.Ithelps themouta lot.Wehave hired a 48.newwebmaster.Ifanyone would like a copyofRoberts RulesofOrder please see 49. him.

Ontario.Ifyouwould like to volunteer please see me. Senatorofthe month award 53. was given to Joe Simmons. 54. 55. DirectorofFinance Christine Staufenberg: Congratulated Senator Simmons. Budget 56. requests are due this Friday. SLE.36.19 is not itemized. SLE.36.25 is fine according 57. toSApolicy. SLE.36.34 is not good because funds cannot go directly to an outside 58. party.

Dr. Deal summarized the background events that led to this 17. resolutionofprotest against the SUNY BoardofTrustees' unprecedented18.intervention into the curricular affairsofcampuses across the19.system. By mandating a new General Education curriculum for allofSUNY 20. (with a resolution passed in December 1998), the Trustees violated their 21. own policies, which call for faculty control over the curriculum and the 22. need to involve faculty, through consultation, in any significant 23. curricular changes. Oswego's Facuity Assembly endorsed a January 1999 24. joint resolutionofpro test against the Trustees that was adopted by the 25. Faculty union (UUP) at its Winter Delegate Assembly and by the University 26. Faculty Senate. Since then, we like most other SUNY campuses have put 27. together new General Education programs incorporating the Trustee 28. requirements and have submitted them to Albany for review. (These programs 29. are all to be implemented in fall 2000 for incoming freshmen.) Two 30. campuses--Fredonia and Binghamton--have had such severe problems during 31. this review phase that they each issued a resolutionofprotest against 32. the Trustees and their new Gen Ed requirements and they asked the other 33. SUNY campuses for support. The Faculty Assembly here, after discussing the

PAGE 16

.. ..34. various ways in which the Trustees have attempted to influence the shape 35.ofrequirements and even individual courses, decided tojointhe ranksof36. the protestersonApril 24 by reaffirming the faculty's prerogative to 37. determine what is taught in the classroom and condemning the Trustees' 38. interference with this prerogative as a threat to the principleof39. academic freedom. TheFAresolution appealed to the University Faculty 40. Senate (scheduled to meetonApril 28-29) to do the same. Although that 41. body only managed to pass a rather watered down versionofthe individual 42. campus resolutions, the issues that generated this predicament have not 43. disappeared. We therefore urge the SA to consider supporting the 44. resolution recently adopted by the Oswego Faculty Assembly.Noone is well 45. served--students leastofall--when the curriculum is manipulated for 46. essentially political reasons. 47. 48. (this was written by Prof. Deal himself) 49.50. EXECTUIVEREPORT51.

'. STUDENT ASSOCKATKON....""" OSWEGOSTATE UNIVERSITY202Hewitt Union Oswego,NY13126Senate 36thLegislative Session 1st Meeting 2 May 2000www.oswego.edu/-studenta(315)341-3601 Fax(315)341-5410 .... Dear Senators, After a lotofdeliberation, I have decided not to include a submitted resolution, "SupportofOurFaculty", submitted byLarryProvost,OffCampus Senator, in this week's packet. There are several reasons for this. This resolution, supporting a condemnationofthe SUNY BoardofTrustees, is a very large step for the Student Association to take. Currently, we have only a handfulofSenators elected, which is not a fair representationofthe entire student bodyofSUNY Oswego. This action would beon the behalfofall students who attend this school, while their opinions would not all be represented. In addition, not enough research has been made into the details and ramifications inherent in this resolution as submitted. Allofus support our faculty, the Student Association has consistently supported faculty, but supportoffaculty is not what isinquestion in this resolution. Rather, it is asking the Student Association to condemn the SUNY BoardofTrustees, as action that cannot be taken lightly, and certainly should not be takenby such a small bodyofSenators. Therefore I have decided nottoinclude this resolution in the packet for the May 2ndmeeting. This resolution canofcourse still be broughttothe floor by amending the agenda, but that would be a dangerous action and I, and President Saleem Cheeks highly advise against it This resolution may be resubmitted in the fall when Senate meetings begin again and when we not only have a better representationofthe studentsofOswego, but also have an opportunity to research the exact detailsofthe resolution, and possibly have a speaker come to Senatetoexplain just what it is that the Faculty Assembly stands for. In this way, we can make a better decision that would benefit not only the Faculty Assembly, but also the Student Association and the student bodyofSUNY Oswego.Ifthere are any questions, I can answer them during office hoursorcan be reachedbye-mailat storch@oswego.edu.
