Margo Crawford, a native of
Chicago, will become the first direc
tor of UNC's Black Cultural Center
on July 1.
Edith Wiggins, associate vice
chancellor of Student Affairs and
coordinator of the search committee,
said Crawford was the most outstand
ing of 60 extraordinarily qualified
applicants. "This campus has a
tremendous resource in Miss Craw
ford," Wiggins said.
Her extensive teaching experience
has greatly enhanced her understand
ing of the needs and capabilities of
college students, Crawford said.
While serving as an assistant profes
sor of Afro-American Studies at
Northeastern Illinois University,
Crawford said she learned to stress
communication when working with
both black and white college students.
"College students are young adults
who know what they want; you don't
need to spoon-feed them," she said.
Rather than dictating the develop
ment and the direction of the Black
Cultural Center, Crawford said she
hopes to assist students in attaining
their own goals and objectives. "As
the director of the cultural center, 1
see myself as facilitating what black
students at UNC want to achieve,"
she said. "It's important that they
have a strong ownership of the
program. They're the voice."
Tonya Locke, a sophomore
member of the search committee,
confirmed Crawford's understanding
of UNC's black students. "She has
the insight as to what the true purpose
of the center is," Locke said. "She
knows the issues that are important
to blacks on this campus, some of
those being minority recruitment and
making students aware of black
University officials and the Board
of Trustees have expressed a high
level of commitment to the BCC,
Crawford said. "Trustee (Chairman)
Bob Eubanks told me he would like
to make the UNC Black Cultural
Center the major collegiate center of
the nation," Crawford said.
Although Crawford and Eubanks
will visit black cultural centers at
Purdue, Ohio State, and Amherst in
the next few weeks, Crawford said
the goal is to learn from, rather than
to duplicate, existing centers.
"There are many developed cultur
al centers," Crawford said. "Most
grew in the 1960's, and that's fine.
But ours is not growing out of
combat; it's more of a partnership.
"Ours is a 1988 Black Cultural
Center. The difference is that it's
springing to life with a great design."
After studying existing centers,
Crawford and Wiggins said the BCC
planning committee will seek to move
the BCC from the Union to a larger,
more suitable site.
Wiggins emphasized that the
Union location was originally recog
nized by the planning committee as
a "temporary, interim situation."
"We probably did make a mistake
by calling it (the space in the Union)

.ow auaroe may caye
orofessoirs to Deave UNC
By HELEN JONES
Carolina may be the Southern part
of heaven for students, but a disturb
ing number of top faculty members
are leaving UNC because of problems
such as insufficient salaries and
benefits and lack of merit pay for
Inadequate compensation may
also be harming efforts to recruit
Several professors, some of whom
left UNC in the past year, also said
recently that the University needs to
offer sabbaticals and a better system
for spouse employment.
Ronald Link, acting dean of the
UNC School of Law, said noncom
petitive benefits packages are hurting
the law school's ability to recruit new
Law school officials were recently
unsuccessful in recruiting an
"extremely productive scholar at
another southeastern law school"
who graduated from UNC's law
school in 1977, Link said.
The professor's salary at the other
school exceeds the pay of most of his
former UNC teachers, most of whom
graduated five to 10 years before him,
Most of the professors interviewed
said low salaries and benefits are an
important factor, but they are not the
sole reason for leaving UNC.
Stamatis Cambanis, chairman of
the statistics department, said two
professors and one associate profes
sor in the department have recently
left UNC for jobs that pay 30 to 40
The other universities offered
promotions and more institutional
support for the sciences, Cambanis
said, and these were also factors in
the professors' decisions. But UNC
needs to provide salaries such that
faculty members will want to stay,
Filling the vacancies is also a
problem, he said. Because the depart
ment cannot increase the positions'
salary levels, it is only competitive
enough to hire less experienced
Salaries in the Department of
Statistics are 15 to 20 percent below
competitive rates, Cambanis said.
David Ruppert, who was a statis
tics professor at UNC for 10 years
before he left during the summer of
1987 to teach at Cornell University,
said the lack of merit pay at UNC
was his major reason for leaving.
"Your salary is based on how many

l!egafl parking by athletes has been reduced, officials say
By JACKIE DOUGLAS
Athletes have no special right to
park at K-lot when they eat at the
Ehringhaus training table, parking
officials said Monday, and the
number of athletes who park illegally
in K-lot has been reduced.
In fall 1986, several residents and
officials of Ehringhaus complained
that the parking office was allowing
athletes to park without permits,
preventing students with permits to
use the spaces they paid for.
Neal Keene, former governor of
Ehringhaus, said he worked with
parking officials last year to try to
improve the situation at the K-lot.
Keene said now that the parking
office hands out extra tickets at K
lot during peak hours, and cars are
ticketed randomly four or five times
a day, until 9 p.m.
The parking situation at K-lot has
improved significantly, Keene said.
"This policy seems to be working
well," he said. "The situation is
certainly not as bad as it was last
Gary Johnson, Ehringhaus area
director, said the traffic office has
cooperated with his efforts to resolve
"The parking regulations have been
enforced, especially over the past two
years," Johnson said. "We (the
parking office and Ehringhaus offi
cials) have done all we can do aside
from setting up barriers to the
parking lot and monitoring it at all
William Scroggs, liaison between
the Athletic Department and the
parking office, said there is no special
parking arrangement between the
parking office and the athletic depart
ment that allows athletes who eat at
the training table to park in K-lot
without being ticketed.
"Anyone, including an athlete, who
parks illegally in K-lot is subject to
being ticketed," Scroggs said.
The situation at the Ehringhaus
parking lot is no different from any
other lot on campus, Scroggs said.
Drew students discuss Hairdoini
By MARK SHAVER
Most say he cares. A few say he
Paul Hardin, the president of
Drew University in Madison, N.J.,
will become UNC's chancellor on
"Some feel he's been out of
touch," said Mike Lief, opinions
editor of The Acorn, Drew's stu
dent newspaper. "He ought to be
aware there are problems, but he
hasn't been involved."
Hardin has a "lackadaisical
management style," Lief said.
But some students and admin
istrators who have dealt with
Tullio Nieman, director of
Drew's student union, said Hardin
always made himself available to
"I think he is very open and
accessible," he said. "Students have
always had the opportunity to talk
with him. He makes a real, honest
f . i
effort to be available.
"If you want an activist president
who gets in there and rolls up his
sleeves, then you have that in
Cynthia Salter, president of
Hyera, a black student organiza
tion, also praised Hardin.
"Paul Hardin is definitely one of
my favorite people here at Drew,"
she said. "He seems sincere in his
"He's not as attached as we
would like him to be when it comes
to certain issues, but it's not like
he's altogether detached."
Students had a hard time draw
ing Hardin's attention to their
problems, said Julie O'Rourke, one
of the leaders of a Drew protest
group dubbed "The Movement."
Students formed The Movement
this year to call attention to what
they saw as poor living conditions
and inadequate social life on
campus, O'Rourke said.
Housing conditions on campus
were deplorable, said Nina Oligino,
See HARDIN page 2
"There are similar situations
throughout campus," he said. "How
ever, because this situation involves
athletes, it's being blown out of.
But Mike Sullivan, Ehringhaus
governor, said although he has seen
athletes receive several tickets, he has
never seen their cars towed.

Students to circulate petotiiomi
opposing admissions office move
By JENNY CLONINGER
Assistant University Editor
North Campus residents will cir
culate petitions this week opposing
the proposed move of the admissions
office into the Circus Room and
voicing their concern that the con
venience store's services will be
discontinued, Morehead Confedera
tion government officials said
UNC Student Stores management
officials also said they are concerned
about the possibility of interrupted
services and the effect on Student
Stores' scholarship funds.
Gordon Rutherford, Facilities
Planning and Design director,
refused to comment Monday on
possible plans for the relocation of
the Circus Room. Harold Wallace,
vice chancellor of University affairs,
could not be reached for comment.
The Morehead Confederation held
an emergency meeting Sunday night
to inform its residents of the move,
Stephanie Hardy, Morehead Confed
eration governor, said.
The residents decided to circulate
two petitions on campus. One
opposes the decision to move the
Circus Room and will cover the
whole campus, concentrating on
North Campus, Hardy said.
"We know the plans for the move
can't be changed, but we want to be
sure of continuous service," Hardy
said. "When we come back in the fall,
we want the Circus Room to still be
here. We don't want to see it close
over the summer."
The other petition opposes using
space in Cobb Residence Hall for
temporary admissions offices and
will be circulated in Cobb, she said.
"We don't believe that offices
should be in a dorm," Hardy said.
"We're afraid it won't be temporary,
and the offices will take over."
The petitions will be presented to
Wayne Kuncl, director of University
housing, and Donald Boulton, vice
chancellor of student affairs, she said,
Rutledge Tufts, UNC Student
Stores manager, said the situation;
calls for a carefully researched
solution. Relocating the Circus
Room could interfere with service;
and affect the scholarships funded by
the Circus Room's revenue.
"The key thing is to keep this
service in place," he said. "There is
a tendency at UNC to make short
term solutions to this sort of problem!
A long-term solution is needed." The
Circus Room, like other Student
Stores operations, is a receipt
supported auxiliary, Tufts said. All
operating costs are paid from sales;
After costs are paid, the net proceeds
are split, with half going back into
operations and half going into a
scholarship fund, he said.
