Cal State Northridge President James W. Cleary has rejected a proposal by faculty members to declare a campus emergency to minimize instructor layoffs and class reductions expected in the school's 1992-93 budget. In a statement issued Friday, Cleary said he rejected the proposal by the Faculty Senate because he did not want to restrict the school's new president, who is expected to be named this week.

Settling into his new office as president of Cal State Northridge in June 1969, James W. Cleary didn't need to look far for a grim reminder of the turmoil the campus had recently endured. Seven months before his arrival, black students and their supporters took over the fifth floor of the administration building and held 34 college officials and employees captive for four hours, demanding more opportunities for minorities at the nearly all-white campus.

To the strains of jazz music and a chorus of good wishes, CSUN President James W. Cleary said farewell Tuesday to a university he helped transform from a nearly all-white suburban school to one of the largest campuses in the California State University system with an ethnically diverse student population. "I'm so overwhelmed I might call the chancellor and tell him that it's all off," Cleary joked to an audience gathered at an outdoor reception in his honor at Cal State Northridge.

Cal State Northridge President James W. Cleary on Monday rejected a recommendation to oust the school's ROTC military training programs, which the faculty wanted abolished because the Pentagon excludes known homosexuals from the armed forces. The Faculty Senate voted by a large margin on March 22 to withdraw the San Fernando Valley campus from the Reserve Officer Training Corps program.

Cal State Northridge student Joo Hong Kim left the home of a Chinese family where he was hiding and rode a borrowed bicycle more than two miles through a Beijing suburb to telephone his worried parents. Two more CSUN students, Mike Martin and Sophia Sun, stayed locked in their Beijing hotel room Thursday, awaiting assurances that U.S. Embassy personnel would escort them safely to the airport. While local students trapped in China tried to cope as best they could, parents of some students joined university officials in complaining that the U.S. State Department has so far done little to help Americans leave the embattled country.
