Today's University Day celebration
marks the first anniversary of Chancel
lor Paul Hardin's installation, and
administrators, faculty members, stu
dents and alumni in recent interviews
praised his leadership in and dedication
to a job that requires quite an adjust
ment. "He came in and learned so quickly,"
said Donald Boulton, vice chancellor
and dean of student affairs. "He has
made a real effort to visit all constitu
ents within the University."
Hardin, the former president of Drew
University, replaced former Chancel
lor Christopher Fordham July 1, 1988,
although he was not officially installed
until Oct. 12, 1988. A member of the
New Jersey Board of Higher Educa
tion, he was also president of Southern
Methodist University from 1972 to 1974
and president of Wofford College in
Spartanburg, S.C., from 1968 to 1972.
Hardin said his first year at UNC had
been intense. Besides getting acquainted
with the University, he has had to deal
with other member institutions of the
UNC system, the N.C. General Assem
bly and governor, the taxpayers, the
Board of Trustees (BOT), and the Board
of Governors (BOG).
"Despite the fact that it was hectic, it
was fun," he said. "But I would have
been busy even if it hadn't been my first
Hardin's only frustration has been
that while the University is dependent
on state funds, he does not have direct
contact with the legislature, he said. "I
can't plead my own case."

UNC marks its 196th anniversary
today with the celebration of Univer
sity Day, highlighted by a speech by
Chancellor Paul Hardin at 1 1 a.m. in
University Day commemorates the
laying of the cornerstone of Old East,
the nation's oldest state university
building, on Oct. 12, 1793. The ob
servance was first held on Oct. 12,
1877, and ever since, that date has
been an annual UNC holiday.
Douglas Dibbert, executive direc
tor of the Alumni Association, said
University Day was always held on
Oct. 12 regardless of the day of the
"Legend has it that it's never rained
on University Day," Dibbert said.
"Although some people have reported
a heavy mist."
Hardin will mark the first anniver
sary of his installation as chancellor
with a speech on his vision for the

sense that our chancellor is going to
give us his vision for the future," said
Donald Boulton, vice chancellor and

Student Body President Brien Lewis'
appointments to the Undergraduate
Court after a lengthy debate concern
ing the legality of approving Bill
Stallings (Dist. IS) because he is a
member of Student Congress.
The 70th Congress passed legisla
tion allowing congress members to
serve in the judicial branch, but some
members questioned the validity of that
law because of superseding rules in the
Words often used to describe Hardin
include "articulate" and "outspoken."
Boulton said Hardin had shown him
self to be an effective spokesman. "One
thing I expect a chancellor should be is
someone who can put our position out
there to be heard."
Some have criticized Hardin as being
too outspoken. "Some people say he
should be seen and not heard," said
Richard Jenrette, a BOT member and
UNC alumnus. "But I think he has
valuable experience in the private sec
tor and we should listen to what he has
In particular, Hardin has spoken
repeatedly about the need for greater
budget flexibility for the individual
UNC campuses. Although Hardin re
assured the UNC community in April
1988 that he did not come to UNC with
sweeping changes in mind, he has been
active in promoting budget policy
Under the state's line-item budget
policy, any funds allocated by the leg
islature to one University department
cannot be transferred to other areas
when needs arise. Instead, leftover funds
from each department must be given
back to the state's general fund.
Hardin has proposed that UNC be
able to allocate funds at its own discre
tion. The BOT approved an outline of
these recommendations Sept. 1. The
report will go to the BOG, which will
make any recommendations to the leg
islature. Jenrette was among those who favor
more budget flexibility. "I think he
(Hardin) is raising the right questions.
I'm behind him on that."
Hardin said BOT support for budget
flexibility was a big step toward change.
"I feel more encouraged now than I
have at any time since coming here."
Student Body President Brien Lewis
said that he supported Hardin's budget
plans, but that they may have encour
aged legislators to raise tuition this
"He (Hardin) got himself into a bit of
a political trap," Lewis said. "He asked
to raise tuition and send it directly back
to the University. So legislators said
'Look, even your chancellor wanted to
increase tuition,' but legislators missed
the second half of the sentence."
Lewis said budget flexibility would
strengthen the University. "Investors
want to see an efficient return. Without

Just as Hardin has brought with him
budget ideas from private institutions,
he has brought with him experiences

Hardin said although he did not
advocate high tuition, he was more
receptive to future increases than stu
dents are. Hardin said his primary
concern was that students receive ade
quate financial aid.
He said an inadequate portion of the
tuition increase was set aside for finan
cial aid this year. "I think that's very
poor state policy. I don't think tuition
should ever be raised unless 20 to 25
percent of the increased revenue is set
aside for financial aid."
But Hardin's experience at private
institutions has made him aware that
tuition increases need to be based on
opinions from all parts of the campus
"Every tuition increase in those pri
vate schools was preceded by a lot of
conversation between student leaders,
faculty leaders and administrators. It's
important to balance the needs of stu
dents to keep tuition low and the needs
