at the rally after receiving several letters
from GSU members.
"I told the chancellor that graduate

to do is to ask him what the present
administration position and thinking is
on this issue and go from there."

Signs that called for "No Compro

Chancellor Paul Hardin as he addressed
about 100 people Tuesday, refusing to
yield to demands made by a coalition of
Hardin stood at the top of the South
Building steps and told onlookers that
he admired and shared the idealism that
led the coalition to honor the late UNC
Professor Sonja Stone and to support
the underpaid University housekeep
ers. But Hardin did not grant the
coalition's demands, which include a
free-standing Sonja H. Stone Black
Cultural Center, an endowed chair in
Stone's name and University support
for the housekeepers.
"I do not agree with those of you who
advocate a free-standing (BCC),"
Hardin said. "I favor a center that is, by
geography and program, inviting and
inclusive a forum, not a fortress."
Hardin said that although he sup
ported the expansion and improvement
of the BCC, a free-standing center would
alienate those students who did not yet
appreciate black culture.
Hardin and other administrators have
suggested that the University allocate
one-third of a proposed Student Union
addition to the new BCC. Other possi
bilities include expanding Chase Hall
or the Daniels Building, which houses
the Student Stores, Hardin said.
But coalition members shook their
heads at these suggestions. Michelle
Thomas, BCC ambassador, said that no
buildings on campus were named after
a black and that credit needed to be
given for accomplishments made by

ment president, said structural limita

- Many members of campus minor
ity groups have mixedemotions about
; the ongoing struggle for a free-standing
black cultural center.
A multicultural center, proposed by
t Chancellor Paul Hardin as a possible ;
i compromise to a new BCC, would
better serve all students, said several
representatives from non-black minor-,
ity organizations on campus.
"I think it's dangerous for the Uni
versity to fund a center of that nature
when there are many people on cam-

than black students," said David
' Kessel, president of the Hillel Foun-

A coalition of students fighting for
a new BCC have directed their struggle

Wilkens said. "The chancellor knows

only organization that has asked for a
cultural center, he said. The BCC is for
all students, not just black students, he
said. He said Campus Y members felt
the black movement could be used to
address all minority issues.
Hardin told about 100 onlookers
Tuesday that the University doesn't have
enough money to fund a free-standing
center only for black students.
