Broncos’ Voice Fayetteville State University ‘TO INFORM, EDUCATE, INSPIRE, AND ENTERTAIN' Volume X, Issue 1 Fall 2002 EDITION Committee Formed to Find New Chancellor Staff Report Fayetteville State University trustees have appointed 17 people to serve on a committee to lead the search for a new chancellor. FSU Chancellor Willis McLeod on July 31 said that he would resign as chancellor of his alma mater by July 1. He could leave before then if a successor is found. The board approved the 17-member search committee after debating how many people would sei"ve on it. On Sept. 9, the board decided that 15 people would serve on the search committee — seven members of the board of trustees, a student government representative, three faculty representatives, one alumni representative, one staff representative and two community representatives, Dr. McLeod is the first FSU Alumnus to serve as Chancellor should serve. But trustee Anthony Grant said the committee including James “Bob Smith, chairman of the FSU Foundation. Some trustees were concerned about the size of the committee and agreed that no more than 15 people should include more than two representatives of the community. “Are we comfortable with just one person?” Grant asked during the meeting. “I am not. In my opinion, the community plays a vital role in (supporting) the university.” Trustee Michael Todd said the board wanted to keep the committee relatively small to ensure full participation. “More people invites more problems,” Todd said. After an hour of discussion and two failed motions, the board approved the addition of two community members. The board selected Jeanette Council of the Cumberland County Board of Commissioners and Marion “Rex” Hanis, a local business owner. On Oct. 4, UNC system President Molly Broad gave the official “charge” to the committee. She told members to look for a new chancellor and will outline their mission.

James Editor-In-Chief Fayetteville State University now tastes the meals of a new food service provider. ARAMARK Foods Service arrived on the campus of FSU in July of 2002. The previous food provider, Shaw Foods Inc., left an 11-year span of serving FSU after an unsuccessful attempt to re sign with FSU. ARAMARK’s contract is for the next five years ending in 2007. Donald McCain, ARAMARK’s Food Service Director, says the company’s goals are to educate FSU’s students concerning wiser eating habits and to raise the students’ standards of behavior in a finer dining atmosphere. McCain says that students’ wants and feelings are top priority. “We believe in being honest. We are here to listen to all concerns and offer the best quality and variety of foods possible,” he says. McCain feels that ARAMARK brings the same fine dining that students from schools such as UNC-Chapel Hill and Boston College experience, but only on a smaller scale. The company also has required customer-training sessions in which employees must enroll. He says this training assists the company in achieving its goal of total customer satisfaction. The reception of ARAMARK from FSU’s students has been pleasing to McCain and his co workers. They say the students have been very pleased and extremely happy with the quality of service provided. FSU students also have a presence in the cafeteria that extends farther than just eating and drinking. More students are now being employed in the cafeteria than in recent years. McCain said that this keeps the relationship between the staff and students on good grounds. “This is their place. By allowing students to work here, we not only help their pocket books, but also prepare them for the workforce. They have a chance to understand the food service business and management in general.” Although the last provider left on not such a good note in the minds of students, McCain says that there was no pressure felt. “I’ve been a manager for 27 years and we bring managers with good experience. We do what we do better than anyone else. Our pencils are always sharpened,” he says. However, one complaint that students are having is concerning the elimination of the take-out food option.
