Leaders Link- ‘ Megabucks for College Access’
I ncreasing the access of H ispanic students to post-secondary learning institutions will be the major thrust of the newly-formed Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, its chairman told Weekly Report last week. Thirty-eight persons, including representa-
tives from 19 institutions, participated in the issociation’s founding sessions May 23 and 24. They adopted by-laws and elected a board of directors over two days of meetings and discussions at San Antonio, Texas’ Our Lady
15 in Statewide Races
Eight Hispanics in New Mexico and four in California are running for statewide positions in those states’ June 3 primaries.
In Texas, three Hispanics are competing in its June 7 primary runoff for state offices: Republican Roy Barrera, for attorney general; Democrats Raul Gonzalez and George Martinez, for state Supreme Court and the Court of Criminal Appeals, respectively. (See May 12 Weekly Report.)
In New Mexico, where all the Hispanic candidates are Democrats* Thomas Benavidez, an Albuquerque realtor, is seen as a long shot in a nine-man field for governor. The seat is being vacated - as mandated by law - by Toney Anaya Casey Luna is the favorite for lieutenant governor, and Rebecca Vigil is in a tight contest for secretary of state. Rudy Apodaca, brother of former New Mexico Gov. Jerry Apodaca, is vying for a judgeship on the state Court of Appeals, while Tony Scarbrough aims for a seat on the state Supreme Court Two other Latinos, Jerome Block and Leo Catanach, are contending for corporation commissioner in a close race. In another tight contest Alex Armijo is running for commissioner of public lands.
No Hispanic candidate in California is given much of a chance. Democrat Charles Pineda Jr., a state hearing officer, is contesting for the governor’s seat along with educator Maria Elizabeth Munoz of the Peace and Freedom Party. Libertarian candidate Norma Jean Almodovar is running for lieutenant governor, and Gloria Garcia, also a Peace and Freedom member, is a candidate for secretary of state.
of the Lake University. The association will consist of 58 two-and four-year institutions that have a 25% or better Hispanic enrollment They are located in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York and Texas.
Gilbert Sanchez, chairperson of the association and president of New Mexico Highlands University in Las Vegas, N.M., said plans include approaching foundations and corporations for “megabucks.”
“We can then disburse funds to Hispanics and encourage them to attend undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate institutions and study in fields in which Hispanics are under-
Bit Ed. Hearings June5
Several national Hispanic organizations will testify before the House Subcommittee on Education, Arts and Humanities of the Labor & Human Resources Committee June 5 in opposition to an administration proposal which would remove the Bilingual Education Act requirement calling for federally funded school programs to use a child’s native language as appropriate in teaching.
Currently, the Department of Education is limited to permitting only 4-10% of the bilingual .education programs it funds to provide instruction in English only.
N.Y. Opens Latino Office
A New York state Office for Hispanic Affairs opened in New York City May 27, with responsibility to advise state agencies and promote the interests of 2 million Hispanics living in the state.
The office was recommended in a 432-page report to Gov. Mario Cuomo last August by the Governor’s Advisory Committee for Hispanic Affairs, which it replaces. The first office of its kind in the state, it will have a $330,000 yearly budget and serve as a clearinghouse on issues such as bilingual education, unemployment and set-aside business programs.
Shirley Rodriguez Remeneski, former director of the State Department of Social Services in New York City, was appointed by Cuomo as the office’s executive director.
represented, such as science, engineering and technologies,” S&nchez said.
Antonio Rigual, elected as executive director of the association and current vice president for institutional advancement at Our Lady of the Lake, said the first member schools of the association were selected because of the services they were already providing for Hispanics. He noted that there are 3,092 nonprofit accredited institutions of higher education in the continental United States, with Hispanics comprising 478,963 of enrollees in those schools. Hispanics number 150,000 in the 58 association-member schools “so fewer than 2% of all institutions are enrolling 30% of all Hispanics enrolled in colleges and universities in the United States,” Rigual said.
Most of the funds raised will go to member schools to improve facilities and equipment and also for the development of Hispanic faculty, Rigual said. Additionally, they would be used to establish fellowships and scholarships to allow Hispanic students to attend member schools of the association as well as others.
S&nchez explained that there are corpo-

Munoz Won’t Run Again
Chicago Board of Education President George Muhoz announced May 28 that he will not seek re-election as president of the 11-member body. The board will hold its annual election at one of its two June meetings after three new appointees of Mayor Harold Washington are seated.
Muhoz said that he intended to remain on the board, which includes three Hispanics, but wanted to spend more time on special projects he has initiated to stem that city’s 43% dropout rate. He testified before a House education subcommittee in Washington, D.C., last week in support of the Dropout Prevention and Reentry Act, a bill which authorizes $50 million in grants to school districts with innovational approaches to the problem.
In Chicago, Muhoz has been working to involve the private sector more actively in public school reform.

rations that would like to contribute to Hispanic education but they have not been able to identify appropriate recipients or determine how their contributions would be used.
“This takes that decision out of their hands. They give to an association that has a corn-mitment to H ispanic education and we decide where their funds will best be utilized.”
The Xerox Corporation provided the association, which began forming in January, with a $3,500 grant to bring interested school officials together and to begin researching institutions which serve and attract Hispanic students.
Headquarters for the association will be at Our Lady of the Lake, Rigual said, and it will depend on volunteer help until a staff can be worked into an as-yet-undetermined budget. Rigual mentioned that the association was looking to raise $50,000 - $100,000 to conduct more detailed research efforts on the schools and to provide travel money for members to get to meetings and to conduct fund-raising.
Also elected as officers of the association were Dr. Steven Altman, president, Texas A&I University, vice chairperson; Sister Elizabeth Anne Sueltenfuss, president, Our Lady of the Lake, treasurer, and Dr. Max Castillo, president, San Antonio College, secretary. Elected as directors-at-large were Father Carlos Plazas, president, Saint Augustine College, Chicago; Gus Cardenas, national liaison for Hispanic affairs, Xerox Corp.; Dr. Raul Cardenas president, South Mountain Community College, Phoenix; and Jose Garza, director, affirmative action programs, Dart& Kraft Inc.
Among the association’s early priorities will be the Hispanic college dropout rate (about 60% in 4-year colleges), financial assistance and development of additional Hispanic faculty.
Its first tasks will be to collect information on member schools- who students are, what programs they are enrolled in, what are the obstacles they encounter- and to disseminate that information to funding sources and make the case for support. — Carlos Morales
Image Complains to UN.
Several civil rights and religious organizations* among them National Image, filed a complaint with the United Nations May 29, charging the United States government with “gross violations of the human rights” of 1,869 Mariel Cubans who, although not serving any criminal sentence, are currently detained at the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary.
An April 9 report by the House Judiciary Subcommittee described prison conditions in Atlanta as“brutal and inhumane” and pointed out that the Cuban prisoners there were “worse off than virtually all other federal sentenced inmates.”

"This takes that decision out of their hands. They give to an association that has a com . mitme?nt to His panic education and we decide wher e their funds will best be utilized." 'he Xerox Corporation provided the as sociation, which began forming in January, with a $3,500 grant to bring interested school officials together and to begin researching institutions which serve and attract Hispanic students. Headquarters for the association will be at Our Lady of the Lake, Rigual said, and it will depend on volunteer help until a staff can be worked into an as-yet-undetermined budget. Rigual mentioned that the association was looking to raise $50,000$1 00,000 to conduct more detailed research efforts on the schools and to provide travel money for members to get to meetings and to conduct fund-raising . Also elected as officers of the association were Dr. Steven Altman, president, Texas A& I University, vice chairperson; Sister Elizabeth Anne Sueltenfuss, president, Our Lady of the Lake, treasurer, and Dr. Max Castillo, presi dent, San Antonio College, secretary. Elected as directors-at-large were Father Carlos Pla zas, president, Saint Augustine College, Chi cago; Gus Cardenas, national liaison for His panic affairs , Xerox Corp. ; Dr. Raul Cardenas president, South Mountain Community Col lege, Phoenix; and Jose Garza, director, af firmative action programs, Dart & Kraft Inc. Among the association' s early priorities will be the Hispanic college dropout rate (about 60% in 4-year colleges) , financial assistance and development of additional Hispanic faculty. Its first tasks will be to collect information on member schoolswho students are , what programs they are enrolled in , what are the obstacles they encounter-and to disseminate that information to funding sources and make the case for support. _ Carlos Morales Image Complains to U.N.
