The Summer Student Congress
passed a resolution Tuesday calling for
the termination of student funding of
the Carolina Gay and Lesbian Associa
tion after an hour and a half of heated
debate and parliamentary jousting.
The resolution, which put the opin
ion of the summer congress on the
record, was meant to encourage the full
student congress to provide no student
fee money to the CGLA during spring
budget hearings, said Congress Speaker
Tim Moore, its primary sponsor. Last
year the CGLA received about $2,000.

The School of Education faculty
will teach more classes in the fall to
avoid cutting class sections as the re

The school's faculty unanimously
approved the heavier teaching load as
part of a two-year plan that also calls
for faculty members to increase their
public service and to raise money for
the school, said Barbara Day, chair
woman of curriculum and instruction
at the school.

said the resolution hurt congress' cred

when they needed to unite in the fight

Flexibility
By JoAnn Rodak
Staff Writer
A bill designed to give UNC-system
schools greater fiscal flexibility reached
the Senate Appropriations Committee
Tuesday, but not without revisions by
the Higher Education Committee.
The revised bill removed a contro
versial section that called for one-half
of state funds not spent during the fiscal
year to revert back to the individual
university to which they had been ap
propriated. This version of the bill com
plies with a present law that all money
not spent during the fiscal year be re
turned to the state.
Jay Robinson, UNC-system vice
president for public affairs and the bill's
chief lobbyist, said hurdling the sticky
reversions section would be the bill's
biggest problem in gaining passage.
"(The bill would) result in a much ...
lower level of reversions to the state,
and not revert much (funding), if any,
with the flexibility bill," he said.
If the bill passes, Robinson said, it
probably would not happen until the
meal card contract, combine several
elements of identification into one card.
Students must surrender their old ID
cards to receive a new one.
The new card has the student's photo
in the bottom right corner. A label to the
left has the student's name and Social
Security numberaboveabar code, which
is used by the libraries. On the back, a
wide magnetic strip at the bottom codes

gress helped carry the resolution. Four
of the resolution's six sponsors were
summer appointees.
Several congress members implied
that Moore had timed the resolution to
coincide with the seating of his appoin
tees on the summer congress.
"That's not the case," Moore said.
He said he didn't submit the resolution
to the full congress during spring ses
sion because congress' agenda had been
too busy. And he said he had appointed
every student who asked to join the
summer congress.
No CGLA representatives were at
the meeting. Moore said he tried unsuc

to tell them about the resolution.
bill revised,
end of the session because of the bill's
financial implications for the state. "It
would be a net loss to the state," he said.
The bill's sponsor, Sen. Howard Lee,
D-Orange, said: "Yes, there is great
opposition to the reversions (provision)
because in the past the state's budget
was built on reversions. Quite frankly, I
think that's a bad way to run a budget.
"In spite of that, there is a willingness
on the part of the legislature leadership
to give this a try."
The new version of the bill also gives
the Board of Governors the power to
determine which of the 16 system
schools would get the added flexibility.
As the bill stands, it applies to the
entire system, but the BOG would se
lect which institutions to select initially.
"We expect UNC at Chapel Hill and
North Carolina State University would
both qualify," Lee said.
"At the outset, we never really said it
would be two pilot schools. We encour
aged it initially.
"We in the legislature simply are not
in the position to know which universi
ties are really qualified to pilot this,"

Next year, the University wants to
add the registration card and athletic
pass information to the bar code, Tufts
said.
If a student drops out or graduates,
the card will be deactivated through the
registrar's office so it cannot be used on
campus, he said.
The wide stripe that contains the meal
plan account information also will code

account, Tufts said.

uiN ciearei
of 6 charges of
discrimmafion
By Jennifer Wing
Editor
The U.S. Department of Education's
Office of Civil Rights said Monday that
its investigation of seven discrimina
tion charges at UNC found the Univer
sity negligent in only one case.
The OCR concluded that University
officials failed to respond quickly
enough to a sexual harassment com
plaint filed in the dentistry school. The
office also found that the female com
plainant in the case was not sexually
harassed, but that the accused male was
guilty of gender harassment.
"School officials had been aware
since 1988 that the Male's actions to
ward the Female were harassing in na
ture; however, an internal investigation
was not conducted until September
1990," the report stated. "The former
Dean, upon being made aware of the
Female's allegation of sexual harass
ment, failed to adhere to requirements
of the University policies and proce
dures in a timely manner as they relate
to a complaint of sexual harassment."
Chancellor Paul Hardin said in a
written public statement that he was
pleased with the ruling.
"They (the findings) tend to show
that the University is dealing profes
sionally, sensitively and fairly with per
sonnel issues," he said. "I intend forthat
end CGLA fiuiding
No CGLA officers could be reached
for comment Wednesday.
Cohen and others said they doubted
the student government code permitted
summer congress appointments by the
speaker, a procedure Heyd used last
summer with the full congress' approval.
Cohen tried to exclude the appoin
tees from voting on the resolution, but
Moore ruled that they could vote.
Elliott Zenick, summer student con
gress speaker pro tern, said allowing the
appointed members to vote was legal.
"We decided that, because of the prece
dent set last year, they could vote."
If the speaker couldn ' t make appoint
ments, the summer congress probably
would have todisband for lack of enough
sent to appropriations
Lee said.
A third revision to the bill deals with
the authority of the chancellors at each
school to eliminate and establish jobs.
Under the revision, chancellors wish
ing to add or abolish positions must
comply with the State Employment Act
andor the policies of the Board of Gov
ernors. Another departure from administra
tion style is that the bill would give
chancellors the power to transfer money
between budget categories, Lee said.
Forexample.UNC-CHChancellorPaul
Hardin could transfer money between
academic and health affairs.
"Also, the chancellors at the institu
tional level will be able to expend up to
$25,000 without a bid process," Lee
said. "This is uncommon authority to be
given this far from the state level."
Despite initial opposition to parts of
the bill which now have been revised
opposition has dispersed, Lee said.
"We haven't found anyone who really
opposes it. Earlier opposition against
the bill has quelled."

about the possibility of losing a card

know that the cards can be deactivated

to be the case, and we work hard to
make sure it is."
The report also found the University
innocent of discrimination in the UNC
police department. Officer Keith
Edwards, a black woman, claims she
was discriminated against on the basis
of gender and race.
According to the report, the qualifi
cations of the two female complainants,
including Edwards, were inferior to the
male applicant's, and investigators
found that the department had shown no
prejudice against women.
"We found that while comprising 16
percent of the staff eligible for promo
tion, females received 20 percent of the
promotions during the 1989 and 1990
calendar years," the report stated. "With
regard to the alleged denial of promo
tion to Female A, our investigation found
that the male selected for the position
had more experience in law enforce
ment and training the Female A."
After discovering that the females'
initial qualifications were stronger than
the male's, the office requested addi
tional data on why the male was pro
moted. Investigators discovered nega
tive background checks for both women,
and cited these as reasons why the male
candidate was more qualified.
The report stated that complainant

members, Zenick said. But the full con
gress might prohibit summer appoint
ments next year to forestall such contro
versies, he said.
Cohen moved to kill the resolution
because it had not been typed according
to specifications spelled out in the stu
dent government code.
Zenick, who presided over the reso
lution debate, ruled Cohen's motion
out-of-order because Cohen did not raise
the point until long after congress had
voted to consider the resolution.
Moore said he hoped the resolution
would convince next year's congress to
terminate the group's funding, which

"I'm feeling really confident about
the bill," Lee added.
There is no timetable on the bill be
cause its movement depends on how
long the appropriations committee de
liberations take, he said. "The bill is
very much on track."
