on their interview scores. Bakke had only scored a 468 out of the possible 500. When he learned that four of the special-admissions spots were left unfilled at the time his application was rejected he wrote a letter to Dr. George H. Lowrey, the associate dean and chairman of the admissions committee, stating how the special admissions system was unjust and prejudiced. When Bakke applied again in 1974 he was once again rejected. This time Bakke sued the University of California. His position was

Politics has always been a dirty game. Now justice is, too.” Although “The Appeal” by John Grisham is a fictional book, the author himself claims that there is a certain truth behind the storyline, as he explains in the author's note. “I must say that there is a lot of truth in this story.” This quote especially shocks one when reconsidering the story and the criminal energy involved. The book impresses the reader with a story based on corruption and money. Mary Grace and Wes Payton are, married
were followers of the head janitor. One was a short black man, named Carl. He had been originally from Kenya, his English was horrible but he was a very life loving man. When he would sporadically speak, it was mainly just to mock his associate janitor. The associate janitor was very enthralling person, his name was Rick. Everybody around me poked fun at at him, sometimes to his face and other times behind his back. This really didn’t matter to him due to the fact that he was mentally unstable.
on what is ethical in your decision making and how to handle it. But you have to take what you learn and incorporate it in your own way of handling things.

Development Plan One constant is change. Technologies change, processes change, research creates and promotes change (Aguinis, 2013). A need for constant change and improvement exists in any organization to remain competitive in the global environment. This need to remain current in teaching and supporting the teaching and research at the College of Business requires that employees invest in their personal development. To assist with this, the college of business not only provides funds for professional
Faculty Rights and Collective Bargaining In 1969, 78.3% of postsecondary faculty was on a tenured-track, leaving 21.7% not eligible for tenure. By 2009, that number had shifted substantially leaving only 33.5% university faculty on a tenure-track and 66.5% not eligible for tenure (Kezar & Maxey, 2013). With the shift from the majority of faculty being tenured to hiring primarily non-tenure eligible staff, it is important for public postsecondary administrators to understand the legal issues regarding
lack of knowledge not as important. She really loved them, and she shows it when she says, "I kissed Hareton good-bye; and since then he has been a stranger: and it's queer to think it, but I've no doubt he has completely forgotten all about Ellen Dean, and that he was ever more than all the world to her and she to him!" (Wuthering Heights Pg. 81) Hareton probably doesn't remember her, but that shows the lack of appreciation everyone had for her. No one praised her like Heathcliff and Edgar praised
Wuthering Heights: Nelly the Narrator Emily Bronte wrote the book Wuthering Heights from the narrative point of view of Nelly, a servant who lived most of her life with Catherine. Many have questioned why Bronte would do so. Why did she not choose someone with more knowledge? Why did she not choose a major character like Heathcliff or Catherine? The choice to make Nelly the narrator is what makes the book so great. She is one who qualifies most to be the narrator. This book is very much about
are portrayed negatively in the novel, they do play a key role in many ways. Dean always needs to have a woman around to make his experiences more "real." As a result, women in general are often degraded. Marylou, for example, is constantly talked about but never talked to. She is not socially valuable enough to engage in conversation. When Dean tries to persuade Sal to sleep with Marylou, the dialogue is between Sal and Dean. Marylou doesn't have one line. All she really has is a little "go ahead"
The Bag of Weed "Come on, it's just one hit, no one will ever find out." We all gathered around the pipe, anxiously awaiting our turn. It was 1:00 in the morning and everyone was asleep, including the dean, or so we thought. Earlier that morning, a friend came up to me excitedly announcing her purchase. She had gotten a bag of weed. I showed a look of approval, not quite caring or knowing what was ahead. I soon would be part of that deal, but at a much higher price. After the evening activities

I have reviewed the input and respectfully submit my response to this feedback, which I hope is considered before a decision about my retention is made by Department RPT committee.

The Free Speech Movement (FSM) at the University of California at Berkeley started during the fall of 1964. (Freeman, Jo) But there were many events leading up to this point. The Free Speech Movement began to obtain momentum in the fall of 1963 and the spring of 1964 the Bay Area was rocked with the civil rights demonstrations against employers who practiced racial discrimination. (Freeman, Jo) These students believed that this was wrong and felt the need to do something about it. So many Berkeley

Importance of Dean Moriarty in Jack Kerouac’s On The Road It is Dean Moriarty, in Jack Kerouac’s On The Road, who represents the eternal flame of youth that was adopted by the rebellious youth culture of the Beat Generation. He is free from responsibility, “simply a youth tremendously excited with life…want[ing] so much to live and to get involved with people who would otherwise pay no attention to him” (Kerouac 4). Just as the Greek of the Olympics, “with [the] torch…[that] ignites the pagan
brother, Dean; I had a favorite uncle, as we all seem to have at one point in our lives. Since Uncle Dean was the youngest, I looked at him as the coolest out of the myriad of older relatives. He often bought me ice cream sundaes and showered me with aimless jokes and “piggy-back” rides. Most of the time spent visiting my father on weekends, was actually spent wrestling with Uncle Dean or playing video games until the break of daylight. I looked forward weekends, because that meant “Uncle Dean Time”

Flaubert's A Simple Heart and Nelly Dean of Bronte's Wuthering Heights Nelly Dean and Felicite are both characters that are in stark contrast to the characters that surround them. They are both good Christian women in there own way who are serving those who have no real interest in godliness and place no real emphasis on it. Nelly Dean is a realistic character in a romantic novel, while Felicite is a romanticized character in a realistic story. Nelly Dean is a servant in a household that
