"There was no administrative home
for either a person or a program that
deals with faculty and staff sexual ha
rassment issues," Gasaway said. "There
was no central place for faculty and
staff to go and complain."
Carol Reuss, a coalition member
representing the provost's office, said
faculty and staff reports of sexual ha
rassment have been handled by the
Division of Student Affairs.
"Faculty members do not always feel
comfortable going through student af
fairs," she said. "We will now have
someone to turn to."

"Our mission is to promote the

The center provides a Fit Friend

want an exercise partner. It also offers
smoking cessation, anorexia nervosa

The Wellness Center uses three pri

cludes programs such as time manage

training for employees.
"Professional development has been
a big concern for a number of years, "
she said. "There is always a need for it.
"Some of the needs for staff em
ployees are going to be a lot more basic
than those of the faculty, but the cost of
not helping the staff develop would be
great," she said.

"Overall wellness is so important,
especially for a college student, and I
don't think they take responsibility for
it," Berry said.
The center has a resource library
that is open to al 1 students and pamph lets

said. Students can call ahead, and a
volunteer in the office will help them
find information, she said.
"(The Wellness Center) is a resource

the center does not have the information
that the student needs, it should be able
to direct students in the right direction

The meeting also addressed the ma
ternity leave policy, which has caused
resentment among some faculty mem
bers, Gasaway said.
"Technically, you can take six weeks'
paid leave, but there are no funds for a
faculty colleague to receive for taking
your place," she said.
Schubert said the maternity leave
policy also discriminates against men.
Hardin supporting SAME efforts
against UNC campus hate crimes
By MATTHEW MIELKE
Chancellor Paul Hardin said he had
not responded yet to Students for the
Advancement of Race Relations' pe
tition against hate crimes on campus,
but that he supported the group's goals.
The petition, signed by 1 ,678 stu
dents, suggests a three-part resolution
to prevent more racial incidents on
campus. SARR members delivered it
to Hardin's secretary after they
marched from the Pit Thursday.
The resolution calls for the Uni
versity to create an official policy for
handling hate crimes, encourages
members of the campus community to
report crimes and requires that all
students take one course about op
pression before graduating.
Hardin was out of town when SARR
members presented the petition, and
participants were unable to give the
petition to Donald Boulton, vice
chancellor of student affairs, because
they were late starting the march.

"Labeling (it) maternity leave sug
gests that men cannot take leave even if
they might want to stay home with their
new baby," she said. "The maternity
leave policy basically outlines what a
woman goes through."
The coalition suggested that the term
"maternity leave" be changed to "fam
ily leave," Schubert said. The family
leave policy would provide paid time
off to care for newborns, as well as
elderly parents and other family mem
bers, she said.
Reuss said the maternity leave policy
should be revised to reflect the needs of
all University employees.

Ruess said Hardin was receptive to
the coalition's ideas and needs at the
meeting. This is the second meeting the
coalition has had with Hardin in the last
"During the meeting, the chancellor
looked to his notes from the previous
year's meeting and made comments to
us before we even had a chance to
speak," Ruess said. "I think that was
indicative of his interest."
Gasaway said the meeting was an
opportunity to bring important issues
about women's concerns on campus to
"It was a yery productive session to
talk and throw around ideas," she said.
The resolution should make a distinc
tion between conduct which is actually
criminal and conduct which is not,
Hardin said. Even though one person
might find something offensive,
people have the right to freedom of
speech, he said.
Marks said that part of the resolu
tion was vague. "We haven't directly
talked to him (Hardin) about what the
goals are," she said.
Hardin said the third part of the
resolution was out of his hands. "The
curriculum, of course, is not within
my direct control," he said. Courses
about oppression are important, but
many UNC professors already en
lighten their students on the topics of
racism, sexism and oppression, he said.
Hardin's committee on community
and diversity is going to hold a dis
cussion and dinner at the chancellor's
house on Wednesday. He plans to
listen to ideas and insights from
committee members, Hardin said.
