The UNC Board of Governors will
consider a proposal for three new in
depth studies to identify programs in the
16-campus system that are
"unproductive, excessively costly and
unnecessarily duplicative" when it meets
on Friday.
If approved, the studies would start in
March 1979 and would take about 18
months to complete. They would cover
the areas of home economics, public
affairs and technology.
Dr. Donald Stedman, UNC associate
vice president for Academic Affairs, said
the three areas were selected because they
are expanding rapidly and need to be
Stedman also said there may be a need
for better cooperation and
communication with the state's
community colleges on some of the
The studies would be similar to the
Teacher Education Review Program
established by the board last year. That
study resulted in the discontinuation of
52 programs and majors that were said to
be too costly, unproductive or repetitive
of programs offered in other schools.
The study would look at programs in
law enforcement, public administration
and social work education, as well as 60
types of courses in the technology area
ranging from computer programming
and systems design to marine studies and
electrical engineering.
On Thursday, the Committee on
Educational Planning, Policies and
Programs also will hear proposals for
several new programs in the UNC system.
"The meeting will be directed more
towards requests for new programs than
those being discontinued," said John
Sanders, UNC vice president for
planning. "There will be about two dozen
programs recommended. It will be a
revision of the long-range planning for
1976 and 1977,"
The committee has annual meetings to
evaluate existing programs, and they are
the principle sessions for long-term
planning in the University system.
Sanders said the proposed program
studies deal with the entire 16-campus
system and do not have anything to do
with the duplication study for certain
campuses that was released last Friday.
That study said UNC officials found
"no educationally unnecessary"
duplication of programs at the bachelor's
and master's degree levels on six UNC
campuses. They . included UNC-Chapel
Hill, N.C. State, N.C. Central University,
A&T State University, UNC-Greensboro
and Winston-Salem State University.
Another item on Thursday's planning
committee agenda is the licensing of
Nova University. The Florida-based
institution runs a program in Lincolnton
and is seeking a license to grant advanced
degrees in the state.
The committee is expected to deny the
request. UNC President William Friday
has recommended that Nova not be
granted the license.
Nova has been offering programs in
North Carolina since 1973 and applied
for a license in 1977. Deputy Attorney
General Andrew Vanore ruled that it
could continue its programs until action
was taken by the UNC Board of

The Residence Hall Association Board
of. Governors approved a resolution
Tuesday night to withhold allocation of
residence hall social fees for orientation
activities until problems with the
orientation system are resolved.
Reasons for the action outlined in the
resolution are the burden placed on the
dorms programming budgets as a result
of social fees allocated to orientation, the
inaction of the Division of Student
Affairs and the Orientation Commission
in finding alternate sources of funding for
orientation, and the "apparent and
inherent problems in the organizational
structure and accountability lines in
many areas of campus."
Concerns about the current funding of
orientation activities through residence
hall social fees were first addressed in a
RH A Board of Governors meeting with
Lisa Harper. Orientation Commission
chairperson, and Barbara Polk, program
assistant in the Division of Student
Affairs. Nov. 7.
RHA members complained at that
time that orientation counselors often are
untrained in budget management and
programming. As a result, they said,
orientation expenses often exceed the
budget, placing a financial burden on the
dorm, which is responsible for the
balance. .
Lisa Harper, orientation chairperson
said she felt she should have been notified
that RHA was considering the proposal.
"I feel that the communication between
orientation and RHA has been next to
nothing." Harper said. "This is an
example of how the situation is

session. -To
determine how much support
ERA will have in the 1979 state Senate,
the Daily Tar Heel used a computer to
analyze the voting records from 1973,
1975 and 1977 for legislators returning
to the 1979 legislature. The analysis
showed that of the 38 senators returning
from the 1977 "legislature, 21 voted
against ERA and 17 voted for the
Of the 1 2 other legislators who will be
in the 1979 Senate, three voted against
ERA as members of the 1977 state
House. One voted yes in the 1977 House
and another voted no as a member of
the 1973 state Senate.
Thus, without the vote of the
remaining seven new legislators, the
probable vote in the 1979 state Senate
would be . 25-18 against ERA. In
telephone interviews, two of those new
legislators said they would vote against
the amendment in 1979.

Republican senator from Forsyth
County. "It's too open-ended and it's

funds for a successful orientation,"
Harper said. "If they could point out the

reaching a solution." said William

orientation coordinators for a budget
since August, but still has not received

bill for $75 from orientation expenses
that had not been figured into the budget
for the fall semester.
"These kinds of problems affect the
process itself," Porterfield said. "We need
to get the coordinators to work with the
dorm executives. In some areas it
happens, and in some it doesn't."
"We feel it's time that Student Affairs
began to address some of these concerns
rather than just paying lip service to
them," said Don Fox. president of RHA.
"We're ready to deal with them in a
constructive manner, but in order, to
make sizable adjustments we need to get
on with it."
An expanded eight-day orientation
planned for fall semester 1979 places an
even greater financial demand on the
residence halls, as they will, have to plan
more activities for the freshmen. Some of
the governors said that their areas were
hard put to fund the five-day orientation
held this year.
Fox stressed that RHA is not trying to
short change the freshmen. Within the
bounds of the resolution, individual
dorms could fund and organize
orientation activities to be run by the
