student become familiar with himself,
his culture or cultures and ways to act
diversely within a larger society.
Multiculturalism tries to show a student
how to comprehend and be conscience
of the diversity of various cultures, and
with this knowledge, help contribute in
An additional idea of multicultural
education is to help a student find
appreciation of other cultures. The ability to
understand others is vital not only in success
at school, but also in diverse work places.

Community Outreach Expansion
program was established as a spe-
cial item in the FY 1994-95 bien-
nium. The program is designed to
demonstrate the capacity of a
state university to achieve its pub-
lic and community service mission
by assisting disadvantaged indi-
viduals, families and neighbor-
hoods to move toward achievement of personal,
social and economic self-sufficiency.
The program established and organized the

Association which serves the residents of the com-

Rex Cottle, president of LU-B, said of the pro-
gram, “The outcome to these area residents is to
strengthen individuals and families with positive atti-
tudes, knowledge, and skills so that they may lift
themselves out of poverty or low-income status;
enter mainstream society as contributors; move
toward realizing their potential as individuals and
family units; and enhance and enrich the neighbor-
hood in which they live.”
The program operates as part of the Division of
Public Services and Continuing Education and is
slated to receive $100,000 in appropriations.
The Spindletop Museum provides educational
activities of historical and technological significance
utilizing the extensive collections and exhibits pro-
vided by 15 buildings in the Spindletop-Gladys City
Boomtown Museum complex.
This museum and associated activities, developed
from the 1976 bicentennial of the United States of
America project, was developed by the Lucas
Gusher Monument Association and the City of
Beaumont Bicentennial Commission.
These groups presented the completed facility to
the State of Texas, and, in turn, to LU.
The museum is requesting $75,016 in appropria-
tions for the 1996-97 biennium.
The major purpose of the museum is to provide
a wide range of educational opportunities, utilizing
the materials, exhibits and artifacts of historical,
sociological and technical value.
The Spindletop Museum has established pro-
grams and exhibits to illustrate the geology and
history of the original Spindletop salt dome which

walking on campus, he said. It is also
wise to be careful entering someone’s
room whom you don’t know well.
Sexual assaults cannot always be pre-
vented, but one can never be too cau-
tious, Fontenot said.
“It’s better to do all you can to pre-
vent a sexual assault than to have to
deal with it if it happens to you,”
Fontenot said. “If all fails and you are
raped, report it to the police as soon as
possible. Do not bathe or change cloth-
ing. You could destroy valuable evi-
dence. Remember, an unreported rape
goes unsolved and leaves the rapist
free to rape again.”
Further information on crime pre-
vention and reporting procedures is
available at the police department.
Fontenot also said the department
