Mouor Court offers students-due process
V S- w S-

and CHIP WILSON
The multiple-choice midterm is difficult and you
need a 2.75 average to get into the business school.
The person sitting next to you made an A on the
last test. You glance over...
Your professor has seen you cheating.
Professors must turn students who disobey the
Code of Student Conduct over to Bill Kimball, the
Student Attorney General or to an administrator
in the Office of Student Affairs. Kimball inves
tigates and then decides whether a student must go
before the Undergraduate Court. A student who
pleads guilty has the option of going before an ad
If Kimball decides a case should be heard, five
members are chosen from the 30-member pool of
students to decide the case. If the Court finds the .
student guilty, it chooses the appropriate sanction,
which ranges from probation to suspension.
Expulsions are rare at the University. The nor
mative sanction for cheating or plagiarism is sus
pension for one semester.
Robert Byrd, a law professor on the Committee
for Student Conduct, agrees with the sanctions.
The Committee oversees the University's honor
system and is made up of students and faculty.
Byrd says an Honor Court hearing is not like a
criminal proceeding. Even though the student has
done something wrong, the system is geared
toward getting the student back on the right track,
"We're not trying an individual for a criminal
offense," Byrd says. The difference between the
Court and a criminal court is that the government
provides the criminal system while students police
Thirty students on the UNC campus wield this
authority which can alter a student's academic life.
These members of the Undergraduate Court act as
judge and jury.
The power ultimately rests with the chancellor,
who can overturn decisions made by the Court or
by the University Hearings Board, a faculty
student group set up for student appeals. But the
Hearings Board and the chancellor rarely overturn
a decision and students retain the authority vested
in them by the Instrument of Student Judicial
. The Instrument outlines the procedure and
policy for the honor system and defines infractions
of the Code of Student conduct which include
academic and non-academic violations. Academic
honor violations include cheating and plagiarism,
and comprise 62 percent of the Honor Court cases.
Non-academic violations such as misuse of Uni
versity records and identification cards, theft,
physical abuse and illegal trafficking of narcotics
make up 38 percent.
The process starts with a complaint to the stu-';
dent attorney general. Without the complaint, the
.student attorney general has no power.
"We're not a police force," says Mark Carpen
ter, former student attorney general. "If students
and professors don't report it, we'll sit up in the
office and won't have anything to do."
To decide if a hearing is needed, the attorney
general talks to the accused, the professor and any
students who may have witnessed the incident. He
also compares tests. If two students have identical
wrong answers then that probably warrants a hear
ing, Kimball says.
Kimball says he will issue a summons if he
doubts either a student's guilt or innocence. Attor
ney generals sometimes vary in that respect, Kim
ball says, adding that in the past some attorney
generals would not issue a summons unless they

Pit rally raps
By MARK STINNEFORD
Speakers representing the UNC ad
ministration, faculty and student body
denounced proposed federal cuts in stu
dent financial aid during an emotional
rally in the Pit Thrusday.
"What they're telling all of us from
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is we have no
right to be here," law student David
Milford told the crowd of an estimated
Milford, who said he was the first per
son in four generations of his family to
attend college, was one of three students
to provide personal testimony on the ef
fects of the proposed cuts.
"I'm here totally on financial aid,"
freshman Debbie Geesin said. "If any
programs are cut or adjusted, I have no
options or alternatives. I'll have to stop
my education. here and .now." .
An estimated 10,000 people-half the
student body receive some form of
financial aid, Director of Student Aid
Eleanor Morris said. The federal govern
ment now provides 79 percent of that aid
through five need-based programs.
Eligibility for the need-based programs is
determined by the financial circumstances
of a student and his family, and the
Guaranteed Student Loan Program.
Under budget cuts proposed by Presi
dent Ronald Reagan's administration,
about half of the 5,100 students now
receiving aid from the need-based pro
grams would be declared ineligible for
aid, Morris said. Also, many of the 4,500
students receiving Guaranteed Student
Loans may no longer qualify since the
program is due to be severely curtailed,

campus leaders, officials spoke against financial aid cuts
"It is impossible for us to devise any
scheme that will allow us to make up for
these drastic cuts if the proposed budget
is passed," said Harold Wallace, vice
chancellor for University affairs.
Former Rep. Richardson Preyer,
D-NC, a visiting professor at UNC, ac
cused the Reagan administration of
"false accounting" on viewing education
as "consumption" rather than as a pro
"We need to invest in human capital as
well as in plants and machinery. This cut
in education can be viewed as a sub

are that this turkey isn't going to fly."

said in a telephone hookup with journa

State-by-state disparities in funding for public and
higher education shown in recent studies may be less
than they seem, the associate vice president for finance
of the UNC system general administration said Thurs
day. Hugh Buchanan said studies that ranked North
Carolina sixth in per-student spending for public colleges
and 35th in the nation in per-pupil spending for public
schools during 1981-82 do not consider differences in
various states' systems.
"When you start looking at figures, you've got to
know what's in each state's figures," he said.
The National Institute of Education's recent study

lected to take into account the various institutions fund
ed through the UNC system's allocations, Buchanan
"In our case, you're talking about the (North Carolina
Memorial) Hospital and aid to private colleges,"
Buchanan said. "I think we're regarded as being one of
the highest (systems) in terms of the dollar value put into
The two private medical schools to which the UNC
system allocates money, the Agricultural Research 'Ser
vice and the Agricultural Extension Service ($37 million),
affect the way North Carolina's allocations compare
with other states, Buchanan said. :
Tom I. Davis, public information officer in the De
partment of Public Education in Raleigh, agreed that the
figures are difficult to compare.
"That's true, they (the members of the public) don't
realize that' it does take into account more than the
school," he said.
Dr. Bob Evans of the Department of Public Instruc
tion said the government has spent more for institutes of
higher education than for elementary and secondary in
stitutions. "We've (N.C.) in general spent a little bit
more for higher education," he said.
North Carolina was 19th in the nation in per-capita
spending by state and local governments for higher edu
cation in 1978-79, according to a study by the State De
partment of Public Instruction.
The study, titled How North Carolina ranks educa
tionally among the fifty states - 1981, placed North
Carolina 36th in per-capita spending for local schools in
. The study ranked North Carolina 35th in the nation in

The NIE report ranked North Carolina eighth in
1981-82 for state and local appropriations per student in
higher education, Dr. Kent Halstead, who conducted the
NIE study, said Tuesday. The study ranked the state
sixth after these figures were adjusted for system cost,
, He said North Carolina should be commended for its
efforts in funding institutions of higher education.
"You don't have a high amount of taxes down there,"
Halstead said. "And yet you make efforts (to fund
"What you really do is, you allocate a high percentage
of your budget to higher education 62 percent above
the national average," he said. "
The percentage of North Carolina revenue spent on
higher education is 17.5 percent, Halstead said, while the
United States' percentage is only 10.7 percent.
Buchanan and Davis agreed that public education of
ficials and UNC system officials feel no competition for.
state allocations. "We have never said they had enough
money. That's not our battle," Buchanan said.
Davis said, "We feel this is a nation-wide thing. The
public schools have gotten a black eye for several years."

subcommittees for qualitative review

on a scale of one to five (one being a high
recommendation for funding) will be used
by the CGC Finance Committee as it

that each organization receive. The full
CGC will meet April 17 to decide which
campus organizations will get funded and
how much money they will get.
Only one program the Black Student
Movement Gospel Choir was recom
mended not to be funded by the subcom

the religious orientation of gospel music
as reason for advising the CGC not to
fund the program, and said that "fund
ing of such a program would be in direct
violation with our policy" of not funding
religious groups. .
But the subcommittee; recommended
that other BSM programs receive a high
priority for funding. The Black Arts
Festival and Black History Month pro

The last four of eight hostages who had been held at knifepoint since Tuesday
were released before dawn after a black civil rights attorney negotiated a deal with
the inmates, who had complained of racism in the North Carolina prison.
The three black convicts were taken from the maximum security Central Prison

Dozier kidnappers convicted
VERONA, Italy (AP) An Italian court on Thursday convicted 17 Red Brigade
terrorists of kidnapping U.S. Army Brig. Gen. James L. Dozier, and sentenced
them to prison terms ranging from 26 months to 27 years.
Eight defendants charged in the Dozier kidnapping remained at large and were
tried in absentia.
Dozier, who was the highest-ranking American at the NATO base here, was the
first non-Italian to be kidnapped by the leftist terrorist group in a decade of hit-and-run

Democrats set to change rules
WASHINGTON (AP) With an unusual degree of harmony, Democrats set
aside their differences Thursday and cleared the way for adoption of new rules that
would radically change the make-up of the 1984 Democratic National Convention.
The full Democratic National Committee will meet Friday to complete action on
the new rules, proposed by a committee led by North Carolina Gov. Jim Hunt.
The new rules would roll back some of the changes adopted in the 1970s to in
crease grass-roots participation at conventions. Now the party is moving to give
elected and party officials a stronger role choosing the 1984 presidential nominee.
