; University research grants topped
$100 million for the second conse
cutive year in 1987-88, Chancellor
Paul Hardin announced at Friday's
Faculty Council meeting.
Last-year's awards totaled $127.9
million, an increase of $22.7 million
over the 1986-1987 figure of $105.2
Despite previous concerns that
research was rivaling teaching as a
University priority, several adminis
trators and faculty members said they
saw the dramatic increase as a
positive sign of the University's

Martin said Tuesday that he
halted the transfer of funds when
he received a letter from the
Chapel Hill Transportation
Department outlining the condi

"We haven't sent the money
yet," said Martin. "I'm still unsure
as to what we're paying for and
if it is what was agreed on.
"I need to feel satisfied that
we're paying for at least the same
service that we thought we were
going to get."
In the letter to Martin, Robert
Godding, Chapel Hill director of
transportation, said the shuttle
could remain free only if officials
continue to use a station wagon
to transport passengers and if an
average of more than 50 pas

research could be detrimental to

"It's not a new emphasis," he said.
"For many years there has been a
gradual development of the research
function of the University."
Poteat said research is essential to
the teaching mission of the Univer
sity. "If the well runs dry if a faculty
member is unable to enlarge, enrich,
strengthen, increase his store of ideas
then what that professor has to
give his or her students will be
diminished," she said.
Kennedy also emphasized the
importance of professors conducting
research to stay abreast of the latest
developments in their fields.
He noted, however, that emphasis
on research posed a risk that teaching
would be neglected.
"Some departments put all their
priorities" in their graduate programs
and research and dont invest a whole
lot of creativity into undergraduate
teaching," he said.
