UNC employees said last week they
were concerned that the proposed
grievance policy could lead to poor
advice from counselors because coun
selors would be paid by the University.
Under the proposed policy, the Uni

filing or considering grievances to
consult with the counselors.

According to Abbott Whitney, co

week should raise awareness among
students, faculty and area residents.
"Human rights week is a week-long
forum in which interest groups from the
University community and groups out
side the University can express their
concerns with issues of human rights

The University negotiated with

Officials also worked with students to

"Under this plan, all rooms are to be

"This was done under the recommen

Student government must sell at least
2,000 copies of "The Indispensable
Guide to Classes" before investors can
be reimbursed and profits can be donated
to UNC libraries, said Student Body
President Bill Hildebolt.
The guides will be available at least
until the last day of phone-in registration,
but sales may continue past that time to
break even, Hildebolt said.
"If we need to, we may try to target
parents at some point through the mail,"
he said. "You may see this edition along
with next year's on sale next fall."
But Hildebolt said sales had been
good so far. "What we've heard from
Student Stores is that sales have been
pretty good," he said. "It's been a big
risk, but at this point it's at least been a
reasonable success, and it may be a
Tracy Lawson, editor of the guide,
said sales had been good, but not great.

Grant Vinik, student body vice
