to resign, giving in to a key rebel
demand, Argentine news agencies

at a military base just outside the

not his men accepted full

ards. Those students need to work
particularly hard to stay at UNC, but
many of them are not aware that they
came in at a disadvantage, he said.
Herbert Davis, associate director
of undergraduate admissions,, also
said retention is UNC's biggest
problem and if black students can be
encouraged to stay at UNC, then
enrollment will also improve. It is
especially disturbing when students
leave for non-academic reasons, he
said, and programs should be aimed
at those people.
"We would think that with the very
good students we get here, we should
have a good retention level," Davis
The most successful recruitment
programs are those that bring stu
dents to the campuses, Davis said,
such as Project Uplift, a weekend visit
for minorities who are rising high
school seniors. Bringing students to
campus helps erase many of the
misconceptions or fears they may
have about being a minority student
at UNC, he said.
"We have some programs in place
that are certainly very strong in
getting students to the campus,"
Harold Wallace, vice chancellor of
University affairs, said one goal of
new recruitment programs is to "try
to intensify and increase involvement
on the part of students, as well as
This is the first year for the
Chancellor's Minority Scholars Pro
gram, which recognizes 25 incoming
freshmen as Chancellor's Minority
Scholars, awarding them an annual
$1,000 scholarship. The program is
still being developed, Wallace said,
but it has been extremely well
received. Another new program is High
School Honors Day, a follow-up to
Project Uplift. All students who
attended Project Uplift in the summer
and are in the top 15 percent of their
high school class are invited to attend
the Honors Day in the fall.
Wallace said the University needs
to concentrate on areas that have not
been as successful In minority enroll
ment, such as the graduate and
"The University needs to do every
thing it can to make it a more
welcome place a more inclusive,
caring community," he said. "At some
levels, we're doing a reasonably good
job but we need to increase

groups towards increasing black
Eleanor Morris, director of the
Office for Scholarships and Student
Aid, said General Administration
provides a fund for a Minority
Presence Scholarship, which is
designed to encourage black attend
ance. The scholarship is for incoming
freshmen and is not renewable for the
following years, she said, but students
who return can receive financial aid
from other funds, if needed.
