The results of the 1990 Carolina Poll
indicate wide respect for UNC-Chapel
Hill among state citizens and provide
encouragement to professors who en
gage in research.
Participants in the poll were asked,
"If you had a son of college age who
could enter any college or university in
the United States, and you had enough
money to send him ... to which college
or university would you most want him
Out of the 595 persons responding,
26 percent picked UNC, 7 percent chose
N.C. State University (NCSU) and 39
percent selected some other school,
while 19 percent indicated that they
would be happy with any school.
The same question was asked with
regard to a daughter instead of a son.
The results were similar: UNC, 25
percent; NCSU, 7 percent; some other
school, 39 percent; and any school, 19
Respondents were also asked to give
their opinions on the quality of educa
tion at UNC. Twenty-eight percent rated
it one of the best, and 39 percent ranked
it as above average. A rating of about
average was given by 17 percent of the
participants, while 1 percent said the
quality was below average.
"It does show that there's a very
positive perception among the public at
large about what is going on at UNC
Chapel Hill," said Tony Strickland,
assistant director of undergraduate
admissions. "There's a big residue of
good will toward the University and its
programs. A lot of it has to do with the
conduct of University programs. I think
the whole image of the University is
generally very positive."
But Strickland was concerned that
the makeup of the "other school" cate
gory was not known, warning that it
might contain a school that outstripped
UNC in the poll. In addition, he felt that
mentioning UNC by name may have
drawn more attention to it.
Participants were also asked to ex
press their opinions concerning the
usefulness of research done by profes
sors. The poll asked: "Some people say
that when professors are involved in
research, their teaching is ben . . Oth
ers say that research takes the
professor's time and energy away from
teaching. Which opinion is closest to
Sixty-six percent of those respond
ing thought that research had a positive
effect on a professor's teaching, and 23
percent said that it took away from it.
Only 46 percent of respondents had
completed at least one year of college.
John Kasson, professor of history,
said his research positively affected his
"The answer is sure, no question,"
he said. "I try to show them (his stu
dents) what historians do, not just read
ing what historians tell you."
"If you don't refill the bottle, it gets
empty," Robert Bain, professor of
American literature, said about research.
"You don't have to publish everything.
You can take it (information gained
from research) into the classroom and
share it with the students."
"Both statements are correct," said
James Wilde, economics professor.
Wilde said time spent researching does
take away from time spent preparing
for class, but research can also increase
the quality of the education receivectinC
the classroom. Nt
The poll also examined how import
tant people consider research in varvj
ous fields to be. Sixty-six percent sajdt
agricultural research was very impor
tant, while 88 percent thought medical
research was very important, and 59
percent gave the same consideration to
research in economic development. ; '
The percentages decrease whefr
people are asked about research in the
humanities, although the majority 'of
respondents still give this type some
degree of importance. Only 33 percent
consider historical studies very impor
tant, and the same value is placed on
studies of literature by 30 percent of the
"Research in humanities is impor
tant," Bain said. "What's practical and
pragmatic gets ranked higher." '
Wilde agreed. "They see it as more
of a pocketbook issue, I'm sure." He
said he thought it was harder for people
to see the subtle benefits of the humahi
ties, because the humanities don't "have
an obvious direct impact on them (the
people)." As an example, he said that
studying history can help us learn frorh
mistakes we have already made.
