Strong, Director Office of Records and Registration ! A statement by the North Carolina Professionals for Health and the Public Interest challenges the University to correct the inadequacies of the Student Infirmary and use the present opportunity to create a model health facility. Unless it does so, the statement continues, it will be failing educationally and medically to serve adequately its students and the state. Mack Lipkin, an intern at North Carolina Memorial Hospital, will present the group's statement at an open hearing this afternoon at 4 p.m. in rooms 202-204 of the Carolina Union. The open hearing is being held to allow students and other interested - persons., the opportunity . to voice their opinions concerning the Student Infirmary. Three health service consultants Dr. John P. Curtis, Joseph Axelrod and Dr. Addie L. Klotz who have been asked to make a comprehensive survey of the UNC student health service program will be present to hear student opinions. The opportunity the group refers to is the proposed new infirmary, to be built at an estimated cost of more than $2,400,000. The infirmary, part of the capital improvement budget, is being submitted for approval to the N.C. General Assembly by Chancellor J. Carlyle Sitterson. The director of the Infirmary, Dr. Edward M. Hedgpeth, is resigning this year after serving more than 20 years at his post. The North Carolina Professionals view these events as a major test for medical planning in the state. "If it is not possible to achieve careful planning embodying the major modern principles of medical care in the staffing and construction of health and disease facilities for this highly educated, captive, concentrated and basically healthy . community, then prospects for doing so elsewhere in the state are poor," the group contends. . Among the major considerations in "planning the new Infirmary; according to the group, is the defination of the community to be served -students, faculty, employes and their families. The student as consumer should be represented in the planning and management of the facility, say the group. Consumer representation, the group states, is the best means to ensure that the facility serves the needs of the consumers. The North Carolina Professionals for Health and the Public Interest is a group of health professionals from the state interested in the problems of health care delivery and related health issues. The group was organized in Chapel Hill in July of 1970. It meets every week or so to discuss current health problems. The membership is made up largely of hospital staff members, students of the UNC Medical School and School of Public Health and other interested students. The panel of consultants to which students will address their remarks is charged with the task of investigating the entire health service program. It will evaluate the present Student Infirmary, make recommendations for further directions of the program and recommendations for facilities that will be needed to accomplish the program suggested. Due to the lack of time available to hear the opinions of all students this afternoon the Student Health and Welfare Committee has suggested that students bring with them a written statement that can be given to the consultants. SO Fro founini mil n r l$ot enough voice, group finds facra T o n on roe m (QieoiSMMii by Doug Hall Staff Writer The Chancellor's Committee on Student Rights has found that students are not satisfied with their role in the University's decision-making process, the chairman of the group said Monday. '.'Generally, students don't feel that they have a voice concerning decisions which affect them," said Dr. Gordon B. Cleveland, who heads the 10-member joint student-faculty group. Cleveland said students feel they are not represented in some cases; and in others, where they are represented, they feel they don't have enough power. "In some cases where they are ostensibly represented, they don't feel they have a voice," he said. 'They feel tjieir position is an advisory capacity instead of decision-making." The committee hopes to have a final draft of the report of their findings by the end of the week, Cleveland said, and will submit their report to the Faculty Council at its meeting April 2. "We will submit the report to the Faculty Council and ask them to accept it," Cleveland said. "We also plan to ask them to pass some specific resolutions." The committee has been working since early1 last fall, giving questionnaires to students, faculty and administrators and recently holding two open meetings. All candidates to meet today There will be a compulsory meeting for all candidates in the upcoming campus elections in the Great Hall of the Carolina Union at 7:30 p.m. tonight. At the first meeting two weeks ago, very few students attended, but student participation "was very good" at the meeting last Thursday, Cleveland said. . "About eight students had prepared statements, and response from the other students was very good," he said. "It was a very useful meeting." While researching the issue of student participation, the committee was broken down into two subcommittees, one of which studied offices and agencies under the dean of student affairs and the other studied academic affairs. 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 curricula and the degree requirements. "We have found that all departments r and administrative agencies haven't set up channels of communication between students and department heads," he said. He said one of the proposals in the committee's report might be that all departments set up a regularly meeting advisory committee composed of students and faculty to advise the department heads. The committee is composed of four students and six faculty members. I I r ,- " 'in : ' i I vr A ; I '-..' , ... .. . ...

(Staff photo by Leslie Todd) by Evans Witt Staff Writer The freshman seminars conducted during the fall semesters were an outstanding success according to those who participated in them. A survey of the students in the seminars and the faculty members who taught them showed almost 96 per cent of the students recommend continuing the seminars with a little over 85 per cent of the faculty making the same recommendation. Dr. Mark Appelbaum, dean of Experimental and Special Studies, was a little surprised at the nearly unanimous response. "I've never seen any groups of students agree so completely on anything," he said. "The seminars were a phenomenal success for those who participated in them." The seminars were initiated last fall as a result of the Merzbacher Report on the General College Curriculum and the Godfrey Report on the Future of the University. The survey conducted by Appelbaum and John K. Nelson, dean of the General College, received response from 327 freshmen. Over 85 per cent of the students said they would take another seminar if possible while only nine per cent indicated they would not take another one. Three major suggestions for changes in the program were evident in the comments from the students: (1) The seminars should be made pass-fail; (2) The seminars should count to fulfill the divisional requirements of the General College curriculum; (3) Seminars should be offered on the sophomore level as well as to freshmen. The students who responded said more than 75 per cent of the time that the seminars were more intellectually stimulating than their other classes. The students seemed to express only two criticisms of the program: first, that the courses tended to be more lecture than seminar; and second, that too much previous knowledge was expected of the students. Although the faculty who taught these seminars were not as unrestrained in their praise of the system, they did as a whole GPSF budget now available Request forms for funds from the 1971-72 Graduate and Professional Student Federation budget are now available from John Balson in 419 Dey Hall. Budget requests are due by March 23. express satisfaction with the program and say that the seminars should be continued. Exactly 85.1 per cent of the faculty who responded to the survey thought the seminars should be continued, said they were interested in teaching another seminar and they would recommend to another faculty member that he also teach a freshman seminar. The maximum percentage of the faculty who responded to any of the above questions in a negative vein was 7.4 per cent concerning teaching another freshman seminar. Otherwise, the responses of the faculty to the remainder of the questions agreed with the sentiments expressed by the students.
