BOE divestment committee plans create confusion
By RON CRAWFORD
As UNC moves forward with
plans to create a committee to
study its divestment policy, con
fusion over the issue still divides
University officials and campus
S. Bobo Tanner III, chairman
of UNC's Poard of Endowment,
announced the board would set up
a committee to study apartheid
after members of the pro
divestment organization Action
Against Apartheid confronted
him before the Board's May 15
meeting. However, there has been
some confusion concerning the
way the committee will be formed
and who will sit on the committee.
In a letter to Tanner dated May
15, AAA and the Anti-Apartheid
Support Group, a similar UNC
organization, outlined the BOE's
proposals as the two groups
understood them. The letter stated
that the BOE agreed to set up a
committee of students, faculty,
staff and members of the Board
According to the letter, each
group would have three represen
tatives to be chosen by Student
Body President Brian Bailey, the
Faculty Council, Chancellor
Christopher Fordham and
In a telephone interview Mon
day, Tanner said there had been
"some misunderstanding" about
the formation of the committee.
"I said I would set up the
committee and make the appoint
ments," Tanner said. "I would ask
for some recommendations, but I
would certainly choose (the

AAA, said last week, "Unless these
conditions (in the letter) are agreed
to, we're not going to participate.
I'm sure some students will, but
the AAA will not."
Bailey said he suggested to
Tanner that the committee be set
up along the guidelines expressed
in the AAAAASG letter. Bailey
said he did not know yet how the
committee would be formed.
Cindy Hahamovitch, a member
of the AASG, expressed regret
that the BOE had not acted on
a Faculty Council proposal con
cerning apartheid made in
December. The proposal called for
the BOE to divest and to set up
a committee consisting of faculty,
students and administrators to
develop recommendations for an
"Not only would they not vote
to divest, they wouldn't even
consider a faculty council resolu
tion," said Hahamovitch. "To me,
that's outrageous. The faculty has
a right to know what happened
to their resolution."
Hahamovitch said the BOE's
proposed committee would be a
substitute for the Faculty Council
Anne Dunbar, the Faculty
Council member who introduced
the original Faculty Council prop
osal, said the new committee is a
good idea "if it is entered into by
everybody with some good faith."
"Should there be no action
taken by the end of August I would
rtainly inquire what the thinking
Ci the BOE was via the chairman
and would urge that the matter
be acted upon one way or the
other," Dunbar said.
McKinley said, "I think (the
committee) has the potential to
come out with a very strong
recommendation for divestment.
However, if Bobo and the others
drag their feet and try to draw it
out through the fall semester,
nothing will come out of it
McKinley said AAA would not
suspend its activities while waiting
for the committee to act.
"One thing we stressed is that
we would not be held hostage by
this," he said.
