The Fall Forum Series is a result
of a faculty report presented earlier
this month by the Committee on

committee formulated proposals to
improve education at UNC.
Dean Gillian Cell of the College
of Arts and Sciences wanted to hear
the University community's sugges

Proposals include a reward system
for excellent teaching and
improvements in classroom seating
and lighting conditions.

Joel Schwartz, director of the
Center for Teaching and Learning,
agreed that student attendance at the
forum is of primary importance.
"If the students don't show up, that
will be interpreted by the adminis
tration that the students don't care
about these issues," he said.
Forum organizers broke the com
mittee's recommendations down and
came out with four primary themes, .
which are the , topics of the four
forums, Schwartz said.
The other three discussions are
"Assessing Good Teaching" on Oct.
25, "The Role and Training of TAs
in an Undergraduate Environment"
on Nov. 1 and "Student Learning in
a Research University" on Nov. 8.
. The forums will begin with pre
pared statements from all of the
groups involved, and then the floor
will be opened for discussion.
In today's forum on teaching,
which included closing Franklin.

Henderson streets and amending the
noise ordinance for the evening, was
approved by the Chapel Hill Town
Council Oct. 10.
The council was most impressed by
the cooperation between the Univer
sity and merchants, said CAA pres
ident Carol Geer. "It's very rare that
the town and the University co
sponsor an event," she said. "Both
groups seemed equally positive and
excited about the event."
Bob Humphreys, downtown asso
ciation member, agreed. "The atti

liked the cooperative nature of this,"
