Sullivan to Leave Business School
By Meredith Craig
Robert Sullivan, dean of UNC’s
Kenan-Flagler Business School, will
leave the University at the end of the
calendar year to create a unique grad
uate business program in San Diego.
Sullivan informed the business
school faculty and staff of his resigna
tion Tuesday after making his final deci
sion to accept a position at the
University of California-San Diego on

N.C. Senate leaders revived hopes
Wednesday for a $l3O million UNC
Hospitals cancer treatment center by
directing Gov. Mike Easley to find $6
million in startup funding.
Amy Fulk, spokeswoman for Senate
President Pro Tern Marc Basnight, D-
Dare, said the Senate amended the
existing economic incentives bill to
include a provision calling for Easley to
locate $6 million to officially start the
center’s planning process.
The new provision comes just a day
after the N.C. Senate determined that a
bill providing the full $l3O million
lacked the support to pass both legisla
Once allocated by the governor, the
funds would be used by the UNC-sys
tem Board of Governors to make gen
eral plans about location, infrastructure
and utilities, said Senate Majority
Leader Tony Rand, D-Cumberland.
The $6 million also would be used in
part to fund planning for a $45 million
biopharmaceutical research facility at
N.C. State University.
The economic incentives legislation
that includes the $6 million provision
goes to a final vote in the Senate today.
If it passes, it must be approved by the
House, where the legislation’s fate is less
The House Finance Committee
voted down the bill providing full fund
ing for the center Monday.
But many senators believe the eco
nomic incentives legislation - including
the section about the treatment center -
should go through.
“This has always been the Senate’s
position, and we’re doing everything we
can do make it a reality,” Rand said.
But Danny Lineberry, spokesman for
House Speaker Jim Black, D-
Mecklenburg, said he is not sure
whether the House will pass the amend
ed legislation today.
Some legislators - primarily House
members - said funding the $l3O mil
lion project despite the state’s precarious
budget situation would send a mixed
message to voters. Others said the legis
lation’s introduction late in the session
might be detrimental to its passage.
“The issue is the fact that it’s October
and it’s too late in the session,”
The Senate passed an adjournment
resolution Tuesday. If the house
approves it, the N.C. General Assembly
will end its prolonged session at 4 p.m.

A report released by a higher educa
tion group Tuesday states that N.C.
higher education is losing its affordabil
ity, but many administrators say rising
costs have not limited access to the
state’s colleges and universities.
The report, released by the
California-based National Center for
Public Policy and Higher Education,
states that although North Carolina has
improved at preparing students for col
lege, state officials aren’t making
enough effort to sustain affordability.
The state’s affordability grade dropped
to a “C” from the “A” it received two years
ago, when the report was first published.
Will Doyle, senior policy analyst for
the center, said higher education systems
are graded on their benefit to the state.
All states were compared to the high
est-ranking state in a particular catego
ry. California was deemed most afford
able this year.
Doyle said the poorest families in
that state pay only 3 percent of the cost
of higher education. The average cost of
full-time enrollment at California com
munity colleges is $390, he said.
But UNC-system President Molly
Broad said California was ahead of all
states in affordability because its
General Assembly “passed a mammoth
expansion in need-based programs.”
“It was so substantial that the gap
