Almost three hours after announcing
his support for a free-standing black
cultural center Thursday, Chancellor
Paul Hardin revised his statement be
cause some supporters of a free-standing
BCC were concerned that the word
ing in the original statement did not
directly endorse a free-standing center.
In response to the request of the blue
ribbon panel Hardin charged with es
tablishing a concrete plan for a new or
expanded BCC, Hardin endorsed a free
standing Sonja Haynes Stone Black
Cultural Center during a press confer
ence Thursday afternoon.
. The panel, chaired by Provost Rich
ard McCormick, had requested in an
interim report that Hardin publicly an
nounce his support for a free-standing
BCC named for Stone.
- "I endorse a free-standing facility to
house the center and will recommend
that the proposed facility be named for
Dr. Stone," Hardin said.
' But Hardin's announcement imme
diately was met with distrust from sev
eral members of the coalition for a free
standing BCC who said the wording of
the statement could have meant Hardin

BCC in addition to other departments or

McCormick delivered the amended

"I continue to be dumbfounded that
our words are not good enough for

v Charles-Pierre said he thought the
final vote on the bill showed that most
congress members were concerned
enough about the seriousness of the
charges to bring the case to trial.
"The prosecution feels it had a strong
enough case to send Jennifer Lloyd to
trial," he said. "However, I am dis
turbed at why on such obvious pieces of
evidence as well as witnesses, there

Many Student Congress members did
not understand the nature of
Wednesday's meeting, Charles-Pierre
said. "People came in distracted from
the obvious matters of law," he said. "In
many ways a process which is supposed
to be neutral became very, very, very

Hardin said he and other administra

day in a meeting he called a "nice, fairly
lengthy discussion" that included
"plenty of candor."
"There was a great deal of reaching
out and hoping to trust," he said.
Among other issues, McCormick said
working group members had even dis
cussed a tentative schedule for con
struction of the center, with an opening
date of spring 1996.
He said the schedule was tight, but it
was realistic if Hardin and the Board of

During the press conference, Hardin
said he had been communicating with

AIS members debate
By Thanassis Cambanis
Members of the Association of Inter
national Students held an information
session about the BCC Thursday night,
voicing opinions on the issue but taking
no official stance.
AIS President Clyde Long said most
international students had been at the
University for a very short time and
knew little about the issues surrounding
the BCC. "I think it would be absurd for
the group to make a decision with so
little information," he said.
Scott Wilkens, Campus Y co-president,
said the vast majority of cultural
groups on campus already had voiced
their support for a free-standing BCC.
