the board will be more of an advisory
group than an administrative one.
Sitterson was quoted in the July 1 1
issue of the Chapel Hill Weekly as saying
the board would "formulate, together
with the director, policies governing
Student Health Services" and "review and
approve innovative changes."
"Essentially, the board has been
changed since July from a group making
changes to a group that advises changes,"
Sitterson said Tuesday every
administrative board at the University
"works in concert with an administrative
officer" an; the health services board
"will thrash things out with the director."
"1 hope this board will ensure that we
have the best Student Health Services
possible," Sitterson said. "I hope the
board will attempt to keep the infirmary
attuned to the students" needs."
Sitterson said he hopes the board will
seek ideas from students about changes in
The board will also aid in planning a
new $2,400,000 infirmary complex
which has been approved by the N.C.
General Assembly, Sitterson added.
Stallings said, "It seems to me with the
problems we have had with the Student
Health Services in the past, we should
have a strong administrative board."
"Students should help in making
decisions," he added. "When a board such
as this is relegated to an advisory group,
you take away much of the prestige and
power to gain changes."
Stallings said he has requested a
meeting with Sitterson to discuss the new

infirmary off to a good start than to have
