Committee Promises to Address Reported Labor Violations

Thursday to draft a letter to a UNC

violations alleged in a student complaint.

bit of doubt. We weren’t playing our
best basketball, we lost four straight, and
that’s just part of being human."

“Our offensive execution was just

Schools Slip in Yearly Ranking
The School of Education

Reports' graduate rankings.
By Jennifer Hagin
Forty two University graduate pro
grams are among the nation’s top 25,
according to U.S. News & World
Report’s annual rankings released to the
press Thursday -but several programs
slipped from last year.
Richard Folkers, spokesman for U.S.
News, said the magazine ranked gradu
ate programs in business, nursing, edu
cation, law and medicine, along with u
yearly rotation of other programs.

Tough defense was an off-and-on
occurrence throughout UNC’s regular
season. One afternoon the team was let
ting Honda State bomb away, going 10-
01-18 on 3 pointers to down UNC 71571,
and a week later it was holding Georgia
Tech to a season-low 27.4-percent shoot
ing performance in a 70-53 Tar Heel win.
So after North Carolina’s loss to the
Demon Deacons in the ACCs, UNC’s
usually mild-mannered, laid-back coach,
Bill Guthridge, was ready to put his
team to work. The dav after the defeat,
when many thought the Far Heels w'ere

main categories all placed in the top 25.
Other UNC graduate programs
among the top finishers were political
science at lOlh, chemistry at 15th, fine
arts at llith and computer science at 21st.
Graduate rankings arc partly based
on statistical surveys that evaluate how
well schools prepare students for the job
market. “We feel it’s a very important
tool people could use,” Folkers said.
The ranking of the School of
Education had the most drastic jump,
from 22nd to 17th. “T his is a dynamic
time for the school, and it’s wonderful to
get the recognition,” said Education
School Dean Madeleine Grumet.
Grumet said the school had been
working on new programs, including a
masters program in secondary school
education and plans for anew degree
for experienced leat hers.
T he School of Nursing climbed from a
licensee al the time Pugatch learned of
the potential violations and whether
such violations were still occurring.
A unanimous decision was ultimately
reached to draft a letter to Logo Athletic,
informing them of the complaint and
urging them lo confirm or deny allega
tions within 30 days.
“This step puts (the licensee) on
record and subjects them to possible
future sanctions if individual monitoring
