13 UNC Campuses Seek Tuition Hike
By Mike Gorman
UNC-system officials are divided
over whether UNC-Chapel Hill’s S4OO
tuition increase, approved last week by
UNC-CH’s Board of Trustees, started a
systemwide chain reaction of similar pro
posals at other UNC-system institutions.
Twelve other UNC-system schools
have now formulated plans for campus
based tuition increases. East Carolina
University is the first system school to
approve a tuition increase after UNC
CH. ECU’s BOT passed a S4OO increase
Thursday at a special meeting, and the
UNC-Charlotte BOT also is slated to vote
Duke Dominates, Sends UNC to Historic Loss
By Mike Ogle
Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski sat
calmly, as he did most of Thursday
night, on the bench along with his
starters and watched history finish
unfolding to the flatline that has become
North Carolina’s season.
Krzyzewski’s delay offense, which he
called with 10
kept the No. 1
largest margin of victory ever against
the Tar Heels (35).
Duke still became the first school to
defeat UNC four straight times in the
Center of Dean Smith, whose shadow
Krzyzewski once coached in. Not only
that, but the Blue Devils reached this
feat by smashing another record in the
87-58 drubbing. It was the Tar Heels’
worst loss, by seven points, in the 16-
year-old Smith Center. This season’s Tar
Heels (6-12,2-6 in the ACC) own seven
of the 34 all-time losses there - the most
in any home of UNC hoops.

Jones, Turnovers Spell Doom for Tar Heels
By Rachel Carter
Dahntayjones got his first taste of the Duke-
North Carolina rivalry and helped leave a bit

Jones, a junior transfer from Rutgers, stole
the ball three times in the first half and gener
ally made a menace of himself, adding anoth

Jones already has shutting down Juan Dixon
on his resume, so why should harassingjason
Capel and the rest of the Tar Heels have proved
to be a challenge for him?
“You’ve just got to make sure you know their
tendencies,” said Jones, who shot 6 of 8 from
the floor for 13 points. “Capel’s much stronger

screens, every time they touch the ball.”

Poor Residence Hall Security Blamed in Attacks; UNC Calls Campus Safe
By Emma Blrg in
A sexual assault on a Duke University
freshman Wednesday is raising questions
about the safety of campus residence halls.
The female resident was found at
about 6 a.m. in a restroom in Randolph
Residence Hall by Duke police. The
(Raleigh) News & Observer reported
Thursday that the woman had been
beaten and sexually assaulted. It is
uncertain whether she was raped.
In a similar incident, a New York
University student was attacked in her
on an increase identical to UNC-CH’s.
Officials at N.C. State University also
recently announced that they will con
sider tuition increases, although they
have not provided a specific amount.
Several UNC-system schools have
already submitted tuition increase pro
posals to the UNC-system Board of
Governors. The BOG will vote on each
school’s tuition increase request, in addi
tion to a possible 4.8 percent systemwide
tuition increase, at their March 6 meeting.
The tuition increases arrive on the
heels of a BOG request last month for
all 16 UNC-system schools to construct
five-year plans for tuition and fees -
starting with the 2003-04 academic year.
we’re lucky to win this game,’”
Krzyzewski said. “Just remember where
you’re at. This place has produced
tremendous basketball over the last four
decades and will continue to do so.’”
North Carolina, most recent history
considered, played tremendous basket
ball for at least a half of a half. The Tar
Heels attacked with an uncharacteristic
aggressiveness early on, breaking
defenders down off the dribble and get
ting to the hoop.
But just getting there wasn’t quite
Jackie Manuel, who missed the pre
vious two games with an injured foot,
drove, but his gentle, two-handed layup
rolled off the iron. Another UNC fresh
man, Jawad Williams, left his layup
short. Manuel’s smooth crossover got
him into the lane, but he lost control,
and he and the ball fell out of bounds.
The Tar Heels missed six layups - in
the first half - while committing 14 of
their 25 turnovers as Duke slowly and
then even more methodically pulled
away for a 48-35 halftime advantage.
“I think when the adrenaline is
pumping because you’re so excited to
play you can lose concentration for a
second, and then you miss easy shots,”
See MEN'S BASKETBALL, Page 4
But Jones didn’t just bother Capel. With
10:56 left in the first half, he swiped the ball
from North Carolina point guard Adam Boone
as Boone brought it upcourt and charged back
for a layup. It was one of Jones’ three steals dur
ing the game.
“We knew he was a very good defender,”
said Boone, who got his pocket picked byjones
a couple of times. “He got in the passing lanes
twice, and he got some nice steals.
“He’s just a great defender.”
Although Jones was a big factor in the early
going, he wasn’t the only one responsible for
the Tar Heels’ 14 first-half turnovers, four more
than they had the whole game against Clemson
The Blue Devils’ perimeter defense caused
lots of bad passes from the Tar Heels and forced
Boone, Capel and Kris Lang to turn the ball
over a combined 13 times during the course of
the game. For the game, Duke stole the ball 12
times from the Tar Heels, which averaged 16.1
residence hall in October 2001 and is fil
ing a S2O million lawsuit against the
school for its allegedly lax security.
The girl was assaulted by a homeless
man who entered the residence hall to use
the bathroom. The lawsuit alleges that the
university’s poor security practices made it
easy for the attacker to enter the building.
John Beckman, NYU senior vice pres
ident for external affairs, said the univer
sity is embarrassed by the attack.
“Obviously, this is a very unfortunate inci
dent.” he said. “The university is deeply
chagrined that any of our students should
ever have to face an incident like this.”
Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.

Duke Still the Best
We can always wait until football
season to see who's really the best.
A key component of the request is
that similar universities within the UNC
system cooperate when constructing
their plan, something UNC-system
schools currently aren’t required to do.
BOG member Bradley Wilson said the
BOG is only accepting one-year tuition
increase plans. Lengthier plans would
interfere with new tuition and finance poli
cies created by the five-year plan, he said.
Wilson added that the BOG expected
the numerous requests for tuition increas
es. “We’ve expected for a while all of the
schools in the system that had not recent
ly asked for an increase to ask for one.”
BOG member Ray Farris said the
schools would have asked for tuition

Legal experts say students must exer
cise precautions despite campuses being
responsible for making residence halls
safe. Dorothy Bemholz, director of
UNC Student Legal Services, said all
entities leasing residential property,
including UNC, are required to provide
minimal safety measures, such as locks.
Bemholz added that students must
act responsibly. She said that if students
do not lock their doors, they can be held
responsible for contributory negligence.

dence halls are secure. Christopher Payne,

looming on the horizon.
“If there was no five-year plan, these
institutions would have asked for a tuition
increase anyway,” he said. “Instead of a
one-year increase, they would have asked
for an increase over two or three years.”
Stick Williams, vice chairman of the
UNC-CH BOT, said reactions of other
universities were not an issue when decid
ing to raise UNC-CH’s tuition.” When dis
cussing raising tuition rates, we don’t talk
about other schools,” Williams said. “We’re

Payne said it is vital to emphasize to
new students the importance of following
safety procedures. “We start with a pro

at C-TOPS, focusing on the awareness of
personal and fire safety, along with the
safety of personal belongings," he said.

Officials say that each year
faculty stay at UNC, their
salaries fall behind those of
newly recruited faculty.
By Brook Corwin
and Philissa Cramer
Money from a recommended campus
initiated tuition increase might be used to
reduce the disparity between veteran
UNC-Chapel Hill professors’ salaries
and those of their recendy hired peers.
At the Jan. 24 UNC-CH Board of
Trustees meeting, Chancellor James
Moeser said he was concerned that
heightened competition for recruiting
and retaining faculty has created a situ
ation where new professors often earn
more than veteran faculty members
with comparable merit
At the meeting, the BOT recom
mended a one-year, S4OO tuition
increase, part of the revenue from which
would be used to increase faculty salaries
in the College of Arts and Sciences. The
proposal will go before the UNC-system
Board of Governors on March 6.
Provost Robert Shelton said money
generated by a tuition increase would
be distributed to individual departments
based on each department’s needs.
Shelton said each department chair
man typically then allocates the money to
the faculty members that are determined
to be the most qualified based on their
teaching, research and service records.
But several department chairmen
said they would like to use part of the
money to correct a salary divide
between long-standing members of the
faculty and recent hires.
Peter Omstein, chairman of the
Department of Psychology, said he typi
cally sets aside 10 to 15 percent of money
allocated for salary increases to adjust the
salaries of returning faculty members who
are earning less than their more recently
hired peers within the department.
“Because the market for new faculty is
so competitive, a professor will often
receive less than another professor who’s
just been hired, even if the two have
comparable ratings in teaching, research
and service,” Omstein said. “Equal rat
ings don’t always mean equal dollars.”
James Thompson, chairman of the
Department of English, said a 1996
campuswide study of the phenomenon,
known as salary inversion, concluded
that for each year a faculty member
remained at UNC, that professor’s
salary fell about $2,800 behind his or
her peers who switched universities.
Lynn Williford, director of institu
tional research, said a more recent sur
vey has not been done because issues of
faculty salary equity are now being
tracked by individual departments.
Thompson said he would use some
revenue from the tuition increase to
