Gov. James Martin's decision not
to reappoint Barbara S. Perry to the
UNC Board of Trustees disappointed
student leaders, according to Student
Congress Speaker Gene Davis.
Davis said Student Congress'
major concern is that there will only
be one woman on the Board of Trus
tees. "The BOT was set up in order
to serve as a vehicle by which the
people of North Carolina could in
fluence the educational institution that
they fund," Davis said. "With more
than half of the state's population
being women, what kind of repre
sentation do they have on a board on
which they comprise less than 10
The governor reappointed Raleigh
businessman John W. Pope and ap
pointed for the first time Raleigh at
torney Arch T. Allen, chairman of
the Wake County Republican Party.
Perry, one of two women on the
1 3-member board, said she received
a letter from Martin last week telling
her she would not be reappointed.
She said Martin promised her a sec
ond term in a face-to-face conversa
tion last winter.
Davis said Perry was well-qualified
for re-election. "They (on the
BOT) know her qualifications as a
board member more than the gover
nor ever could," Davis said. "The
governor's decision unfortunately
seems to represent a more political
Robert C. Eubanks, trustee of the
board, called the governor's move "a
"It just shows politics are more
important than the University,"
Eubanks said. "I think it's just one of
the worst things I've ever seen."
David Prather, deputy director of
communications for the governor, said

Until the N.C. General Assembly
reaches a consensus on a proposed
tuition increase for the UNC-system
schools, students will not know what
tuition will be and the Board of Gov
ernors will not vote on student fee
"Now tuition and student fees are
both up in the air," said Brien Lewis,
student body president. "People will
literally not know what their fees are
going to be until they get here."
It will probably be two more weeks
before the N.C. House and Senate
reach a consensus on a proposed tui
tion increase for the UNC-system
schools for the fall semester, accord
ing to UNC-system lobbyist Jay
A House subcommittee recom
mended a 20 percent increase in tui
tion for in-state students and a 15
percent tuition increase for out-of-state
The Senate subcommittee recom
mended an 8.5 percent increase for
in-state and out-of-state students
House and Senate leaders will
continue to meet in a conference
committee until an agreement is
reached. The final recommendation
will then be voted on in both houses.
Until then, the Board of Gover
nors will not approve the amount of
students fees for the fall semester.
The Aug. 5 BOG meeting has been
moved to Aug. 25.
"There is no great plus in having
a fee schedule established when there
is no tuition schedule established,"
said Felix Joyner, UNC vice presi-

Social work building awaits funding
By SARAH CAGLE
Officials at the UNC School of
Social Work are hoping that the N.C.
House of Representatives will appro
priate funds for a building which the
N.C. Senate would not.
The $8.3 million building to house
the school has been planned for the
past two years. A site on Pittsboro
Street has been approved by the Board
of Trustees, and the legislature has
already appropriated $400,000 for an
architect to design the building, ac
cording to John B. Turner, dean of
The Senate did not appropriate
money for the request, which the UNC
Board of Governors deemed a high
The only Senate appropriations for
UNC were made for a $7.5 million
building to house the Graduate School
of Business Administration, which
was not among the BOG requests.
, A House committee countered the
proposal with an offer to appropriate
one-half of the $8.3 million request
to the School of Social Work this
year, and the rest the following year.
The 68-year-old School of Social
Work has never had its own build
ing. Classes and administration cur
rently operate in four different build
ings on opposite ends of campus,
The school is also planning to in
stitute a doctoral program pending
approval from the Board of Trustees.
Without a building, Turner said, the
program would be difficult to run.
"We need the space and the facili
ties," he said. "We're trying to re
spond to the educational needs of the
Paul J. Rizzo, dean of the Gradu
ate School of Business, said his
school's facilities are also inadequate,
and a new building would enhance
the school's national reputation. The
graduate school is currently housed
in Carroll Hall with the undergradu
ate Department of Business.
Rizzo said a site near the Kenan
Center, which houses the Institute for
Private Enterprise, is possible.
Neither Turner nor Rizzo would
comment on the Senate decision. "I
don't determine their priorities," Rizzo
UNC Provost Dennis J. O'Connor
said he was puzzled by the decision.
"It would seem that the Senate has
taken this out of sequence," O'Connor
said. "That's clear. Why they did it I
The offer of private funds for the
school from Frank Kenan, a trustee
of the William Kenan Jr. Charitable
Trust and a long-time University
benefactor, may have prompted the
Kenan offered to contribute $5
million toward the building and UNC

portedly approached Sen. Kenneth
Royall, D-Durham, with the offer.

ate Appropriations Committee, said
he pushed for the business school
building rather than the social work
building because the private funds
were available and it was apparent
that a lean budget year would cut out
The House bill supporting the
School of Social Work still has to be
adopted by both House and Senate.
Officials said unless the bill passes,
the new building for the school will
stay on hold.
"The school may not be built in
the short term," O'Connor said.
The Senate rejected several other
capital improvements projects at
UNC. A $36 million building to house
the School of Journalism and the
Radio, Television and Motion Pic
tures Department was turned down.
A $13.9 million biotechnology and
biomedical research laboratory and a
$7.2 million addition to the dental
school were also omitted from the
