Student Congress passed the Caro
lina Gay and Lesbian Association's
budget with a 14-13 vote Sunday but
restricted the group's power by requir
ing the organization to subm it copies of
its publication for a congressional
As the hearing drew to a close , some
members attempted to rescind the vote
by passing a separate motion after CGLA
supporters left the meeting, but that
motion was defeated narrowly.
Svati Shodhan, CGLA co-chairwoman,
said: "I'm joyous that our bud
get passed. That was our main concern.
I'd like to think of Student Congress as
people we can work with, not as par
ents." But Shodhan said a rider attached to
the budget that required the group to
submit its publications for review would
hurt the group.
; "Unfortunately this rider, despite
what (Speaker) Tim Moore said, does
put a bottleneck on our fees because it
equates being politically partisan with
being political, and that is clearly not
within the Student Code at this time."
The rider, authored by Moore and
amended by Rep. Andrew Cohen, Dist.
6, stated that publications must be sub
' mitted to the congress administrative
committee. "The CGLA cannot use stu
dent government funds in advocating,
endorsing or opposing legislation, gov
ernmental actions, candidates for po
litical office or political action commit
tees." Cohen said members would have dif
ficulty making the distinction of what
was permissible within publications.
"Now instead of there being a CGLA,
there's going to be a CGLA with con
gress breathing down its neck."
Shodhan said: "Basically, it's like a
gag law. With the rider, it would mean

budget hearing, said it was against the

with political parties.
He quoted passages from newspaper
articles linking the CGLA to politically
active groups across the state. Congress
must evaluate each group according to
this criterion, Moore said.
Political activism is not appropriate,
he said. "We have to spend the students'

Blacks make up about 3 percent of the

mains constant over the last five years,"
Noblit said. "That's a shame."
The report stated that black faculty
members stayed at UNC because of its
academic rank but cited negative fac
tors such as a limited benefits package
and the lack of ethnic and racial diver
sity within the faculty.
The report mirrored a report by the
Chancellor's Committee on Commu
nity and Diversity. That report said black
faculty members were "at the risk of
being asked to do 'double duty'" be
cause they often were asked to assist
with minority affairs activities as well
as academic activities.
The report also stated that "minority
faculty are 'frequently left out of oppor

constant: 'Ain't it awful, ain't it awful,

be awful any more."
Noblit outlined some possible rem

"First is to embrace diversity as part
of our mission," he said.
University officials need to be clear
in their standards for recruiting minor

faculty, Noblit said.
A second suggestion was the expan
