" The number of officially recog
nized student organizations has
dropped from 270 last year to 184
as of Monday because some groups
have just "disappeared," according to
The number is lower this year
because "some won't be recognized
again. They've lived their life," said
Carol Binzer of the Office of Lead
Also, some groups were not rec
ognized because their applications
Were incomplete, and others did not
reapply, Binzer said. The complete
list is being compiled and will be
available next week, she said,
j Groups and organizations at UNC
are officially recognized through
Sept. 30 of every year and must file
for official recognition from the
yniversity by completing an
New groups filing for recognition
must supply a constitution and
statement of purpose with the appli
cation, she said. The organization
must have an adviser who is either
a faculty member or a full-time staff
member, and its officers must be full
time students, she said.
Binzer said groups at UNC must
file for official recognition each year
because officially-recognized groups
receive benefits, like permission to use
the name of the University, permis
sion to rent space in the Carolina
Union and funding from the Student
Applying for recognition is a
process that "has been going on for
some time," Binzer said. The process
has been handled by the Division of
Student Affairs and the Office of
Leadership Development for the past
four years, she said.
The large number of activities
from page 1
sponsored by campus groups like the
Campus Y and the Carolina Union
created a need for a central base all
groups could work from, she said.
The Division of Student Affairs
provides the base while the Office of
Leadership Development provides
resources such as workshops and
conferences for all student groups,
The office also contacts groups
when events that correspond to the
group's interests take place, she said.
The contacts generate little
response from the groups. "We don't
usually get a lot of responses three,
maybe five," Binzer said. But reaction
to the events is positive, especially
among those who do not have a large
number of time constraints, she said.
The office plans to work on
increasing groups' involvement in
leadership programs and helping
groups emphasize their collective
goals and purposes, Binzer said.
"Organizations are losing sight of
what needs to be done, and some
times the leaders will go off on
tangents to work for their own goals,"
Binzer said the development of an
index of student groups is being
completed. The index is a database
which will list all student groups
alphabetically. The base is also
designed to list group presidents,
telephone numbers and advisers, she
The database will be printed and
another copy will be produced on a
computer disk. Both will be available
to students, she said.
Binzer said the database is the
number one priority for the office and
that a partial listing should be

completed by next month. "We want
to have some semblance of a setup
of the listings j" she said.
If the database is successful after
a trial run, it may be placed on the
Info information network, she said.
The success of the database could
help increase the activity of student
groups because more people would
know how to get involved in groups
and take part in the seminars and
workshops sponsored by the office.
"This could increase involvement in
organizations, which could then call
for more leaders," Binzer said.
The housing situation in the
Chapel Hill area is growing increas
ingly worse, he said.
'. "The housing problems in this area
'are making it difficult for town
employees such as police officers and
'firefighters to find adequate housing
within the town," Barrett said.
-.. The housing crunch is having an
effect on the University also, by
jhaking it increasingly difficult for
.professors and off-campus students
to find housing, he said.
Members of the partnership expect
to participate in many projects jointly
with Triangle cities and feel the cities
will supply encouragement for the
program's efforts, he said.
"I'm really excited about this
opportunity to have a positive influ
ence on an evident need, and we hope
that we can produce results which will
show that our efforts have made a
difference," he said.

By BRENDA CAMPBELL
The annual U.S. News and World
Report survey on "America's Best
Colleges," which ranked UNC 23rd
overall, will make UNC more iden
tifiable to the general public, Univer
sity officials said Tuesday.
The survey ranked UNC third
among public universities. The Uni
versity of Virginia and the University
of California at Los Angeles were the
two public universities that ranked
In recent years the survey has
helped increase the number and
quality of the applications received
by the University, administrators
"Since the survey was started we
have always been in the ranking," said
Richard Cashwell, director of under
graduate admissions. "These rank
ings have contributed to the increase
of applications. In 1984 we received
10,000 applications and this past year
,we received 17,500.
"The quality of the applications has
also increased," he said. "With the
increase of applications we have more
to choose from."
Since 1984, when UNC was first
listed in the survey, competition with
Ivy League schools has increased.
"From the applications we enroll
students with significant caliber that
could go anywhere. We are compet
itive with other schools in the survey,"
Cashwell said. "We always want to
enroll the best students possible."
The quality of the faculty was also
conr idered in the survey.
A high ranking does not help
recruit faculty, but it helps to improve
the perceptions of the current faculty,
said Gillian Cell, dean of the College
of Arts and Sciences.
"I certainly think that they (rank
ings) help unconsciously," Cell said.
"But I don't think they are directly
responsible for decisions made by the
"We try not to put too much
emphasis on these rankings because
the criteria to reach these rankings
changes every year," she said.
The survey also helps to confirm
the feelings of students who have
graduated from UNC about the
quality and academic excellence of
the University. '
"The ranking helps to reinforce
what the Carolina alumni have
always believed, and that is that this
is a superb university," said Douglas
Dibbert, director of Alumni Affairs.
"The fact that we ranked third is not
a surprise, but a reassurance of how
we compare to other national

Carolina alumni already contribute
greatly to the University and the new
ranking will help continue this
support, Dibbert said.
"There is an overall excitement
from the Carolina alumni because of
the many changes at the University,"
he said. "But it is always helpful to
see where we stand."
The people of North Carolina will
take the ranking very seriously
because the University is a state
supported school, Dibbert said.
"The most important thing is that
it tells the people of North Carolina
that we are serving them well," he
said. "This type of relation between
the people and students of North
Carolina is one that most national
surveys will not focus on."
Former UNC students have found
that the rankings help identify the
school's academic excellence in
professional circles, Cell said.
"All over the nation this University
has a fine reputation and the ranking
is a part of that," she said. "It is
regarded very highly to have a degree
from this University." ,
