The Chancellor's Committee on
Student Rights, which is considering the
issue of student participation in the
University, will hold an open meeting
Thursday at 4 p.m. in the Carolina Union.
"We would like to have advice from
students," said Committee Chairman Dr.
Gordon Cleveland. "We are trying our
best to get student opinion."
The Rights Committee met last
Thursday but "very few" students
attended. "We had too much competition
from other campus activities," Cleveland
said. "I believe the students are genuinely
interested in this issue."
The Committee is preparing a report
for the Faculty Council on the kind of
participation that students feel they need
in the decision making process.
'When the report is completed
"sometime next week" the Faculty
Council will be asked to accept it,"
Cleveland said. "We plan to ask them to
pass some specific resolutions."
The 10-member committee, including
four students, has been disappointed in
the lack of student response. "I suppose
students feel that talking to us won't do
any good anyway," Cleveland said.
"However, I want to emphasize that we
are more than an ordinary committee."
He said any resolutions passed by the
Faculaty Council would be "the
equivalent of faculty legislation."
Cleveland said the students his
committee had talked to thus far wanted
more student participation in the areas of
hiring and firing of professors, the
composition of the curricula and the

undergraduate constitution changes and
the bill concerning our $8,500
appropriation at the Student Legislature

The graduate president said he felt
that if these bills were not passed this
week, spring elections and plans for the
1971-72 budget would get in the way of
these present issues.
"Our people are meeting with SL
legislative committees," Baggett said.
"But I have been unable to even talk with
