The University will suffer additional
budget cuts in the state's second-quarter
allotments, requiring severe cutbacks
throughout the campus, UNC officials
Ben Tuchi, vice chancellor of busi
ness and finance, said the University is
preparing for additional budget reduc
tions, although no exact numbers are
known. "The University is subject to
more reductions, and those reductions
will likely be substantial."
The University is dealing with a 5
percent budget cut the General Assem
bly mandated this summer.
Patricia Poteat, associate vice chan
cellor for academic affairs, said the
University must prepare immediately
for the cutbacks. "The second-quarter
allotments will reflect the reductions,
but the University needs to put measures
into place immediately," she said.
University officials said the areas to
be cut at the University will depend on
the size of the reduction.
Tuchi said, "We think the (reductions)
will go everywhere."
Provost Dennis O'Connor said that
although the University could not cut
any classes at this point, students will
feel the effects. "What really suffers is
the instructional mission of the Uni
versity," he said. "That's why (students)
are taking it in the neck.

David Crotts, senior fiscal analyst

he said. "(Also) July tax collections

Crotts also said the cutbacks may be

The University's budget shortfall is
forcing faculty members to find different
ways to pay for course preparation,
professors said Wednesday.
"It's obvious to me that we are now
beginning to have to pay for essential
services for teaching using funds the
state of North Carolina has not appro
priated," said William Glaze, chairman
of the environmental sciences and en
gineering department. "They are using
funds they have generated from con
tracts and grants for purposes that bor

Other instructors are even using their
own money to pay for course materials.
"We're seeing a lot more professors
running syllabuses off out of their own
pockets," said Render Dahiya, manager
of Kinko's Copies on Franklin Street.
David Lowery, chairman of the po
litical science department, said his de
partment is "taking responsibility" for
copying syllabuses and exams and
making one copy of each page going
into course packets. Lowery said he
would use his own money to copy the
materials he needs for class each day.

"It's nice to give students a copy of a
newspaper article I saw that day, or
even give them worksheets," Lowery
said. "I would always hand out an out

class, and that really did help us out
we ended up covering more topics."
Lowery said he would pay for the
extra materials because they are neces

Although the number of course
packets being sold is similar to past
years, the average course packet this
year has increased in size because many
instructors cannot pay to copy materials
they ordinarily would distribute in class,
"There are certain things that are
being included (in the course packets)
that weren't being included before," he
said, adding that more instructors are
putting syllabuses in the packets. "The
departments won't let them spend the
money in-house on them."

course packets has been minimal,
