USF refus es information to senators BY SANDRA WRIGHT Oracle Managing Editor Although State University System (SUS)Chancellor Robert Mautz said yesterday USF officials should comply with legislative requests for information needed jn a tenure investigation, a USF official said he was advised by Mautz' office to withhold such data. The Senate Education Committee, .. investigating pay raise, promotion and tenure practices throughout the SUS, has sought to gain access to documents at USF but has been denied access, mittee legislative analyst Ernie Litz said. The documents included pqlicy statements and evaluations, he said "I talked to the chancellor's office about this," USF Vice President for Academic Affairs Carl Riggs said yesterday. "They said we have no choice but to abide by the law" and that means withholding the information, he said. However Mautz said he has not spoken to USF Pres. Cecil Mackey concerning the investigation but said he would advise if asked release of the evaluations and other data. "Of coursf' we'll cooperate and give anything requested in the in vestigation," Mautz said,..'.'with certain precautions for the protection of the faculty members." Mautz said although Board of Regents (BOR) policy now requires evaluations to be closed to the public, the Florida Cabinet recently overturned this policy The cabinet order will become effective within 45 days. "I'd rather furnish the information voluntarily," Mautz said. "Of course in 45 days, it will be public anyway.'' But Riggs said he was "300 per cent sure" Mautz' office advised against record disclosure : Litz, who is seeking the data, said Mackey is "just trying to blanket" all pertinent information under the BOR closed file policy and said this was hindering the probe. He said Mackey has refused to disclose the criteria used to a decide on pay raises, promotion and tenure. The refusal initially came during a meeting with Riggs and Mackey, Litz has said. "He (Litz) never talked to me,' .. Riggs said "I've never laid eyes on him that I know of." Although the lack of information is slowing the probe, preliminary findings show USF is not following state law in promotion and salary policy, Litz said. The main emphasis is on research rather than teaching at USF, he said "It is clear Dr. Mackey wants a research institution in an urban area," Litz said. Chancellor considers USF Mautz offered job BY SANDRA WRIGHT Oracle Managing Editor State University System Chancellor Robert Mautz has been offered a job at USF and is considering accepting the position, he said yesterday. Mautz, who will step down from his post as chancellor this summer, said he and USF Pres. Cecil Mackey are now negotiating concerning the position Mautz would assume as well as salary and other con siderations However, the job would probably be a professor ship in the College of Education, he said. When he announced his plans to leave the chancellor's office Mautz said he would go to the University of Florida and join the faculty of the law school. But now, however, he said although he is still "favoring" the UF position, he is considering the USF offer. If he comes to the University, Mautz said he would not be in terested in advancing into ad ministration. Mackey was unavailable for comment but USF Vice President for Academic Affairs Carl Riggs said he was unaware the negotiations are underway and said he knew of no plans for Mautz to join the faculty.

USF may form NAACP chapter Plans for starting a USF chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACPl will be discussed at a meeting Thursday at 5 p.m in UC 202, Assitant to the Vice President for Student Affairs Troy Collier said yesterday. ''Everyone is welcome,'' Collier said "I guess it's what you'd call an organizational meeting The idea originated when a couple of people talked to me about the concept of NAACP at USF," Collier said. "It seems that very few people here par ticipate in the downtown chapter and we wondered if there was anything stopping us from starting our own group." Collier said he asked the Tampa chapter if they would oppose the founding of a USF branch. "They said they thought it was a good idea," he said. "Ruth Carlyle and a group of other students were the first to express interest in such a project and we contacted Matthew Gregory, president of the Tampa NAACP chapter Collier said "He's helping us out." Gregory and Tampa chapter Vice President Austin Park will speak at Thursday's meeting, with former chapter president Robert Gilder, Director of USF Afro-American Studies Dr Festus Ohaegbulan, and Student Union representative Larry Jenkins. Fee plan opposed Two student college councils, Business Administration and Lan-Lit have passed resolutions to send letters of protest to state government officials concerning the recently proposed fee structure change passed by the Board of Regents (BOR> last week, the council presidents said. The student council in Business plans to take action on the proposed fee structure change in the form of a letter, Vince Budny, council president, said. In addition, the council plans on awarding one staff member other than faculty with an award "in recognition" of service to the College of Business, Budny said. He also said a faculty member will receive the "Dean Cline" award. Budny said the council also voted to support an SG request for aid in distributing carpooling forms. The Lan-Lit Student Council decided after long debate to further review the BOR fee structure proposal and formed a committee to work on a resolution to submit to the Florida Legislatur e by the end of the week Council members Jim Davis Joan Weil, Richard Lewis and Paul Schneider and Claudia McIIwain, were selected to draft a sta tement on the fee change. The council is also drafting a resolution protesting the recent BOH action placing the Master's program in French and Spanish and the Bacheior's program in French German, Italian, Russ ian Classics. Mcllwain, council president, presented the 1974-75 budget to the council and the council also approved the award of a $200 scholarsip to a Lan-Lit senior based on his "academic career." The council will also sponsor a quarterly literary contest. and award $25 to the winner of the contest. The literary works will be judged and published in the English departments' literary magazine.
