Despite Chancellor Paul Hardin's
announcement last week that he sup
ports a free-standing black cultural cen
ter, members of the coalition for a free
standing BCC and the BCC Advisory
Board have not issued any sort of offi
cial group statement saying whether
they will attend the fourth meeting of
the BCC working group today.
Michelle Thomas, president of the
Black Student Movement and a BCC
Advisory Board member, said advisory
board Vice Chairwoman Trisha Mer
chant and BCC Director Margo
Crawford would be present at today's
meeting, which begins at 2 p.m. at the
But Adrian Patillo, working group
member and a member of the Black
Student Movement, said he originally
heard that advisory board members and
coalition members would be attending
the meeting, but later was told by Mer
chant that they would not be present at
' "She told me that they are not going
to be there," Patillo said.

At its Friday meeting, the UNC-sys-tem
Board of Governors approved a
proposed budget that would give UNC
system schools $250 million more for
the 1993-95 biennium.
The committee on budget and fi
nance originally proposed the approxi
mately $250 million budget increase at
its meeting last Monday.
The increase would provide funding
for the 16 UNC system schools, the
UNC Hospitals, various N.C. State ag

Chilton discussed the cyclists' rea

Eeport: Fewer women
hired for faculty in 1991
By Holly Stepp
According to a report discussed
Friday by the Faculty Council, very
few women move into the position of
full professor at UNC, and the per
centage of women hired as faculty
members has dropped since 1989.
The report, written by the council's
committee on the status of women,
revealed that in 1990-91, all four full
professorships given out went to men.
The report also showed that the
percentage of women hired dropped
in 1990-91 . In 1989-90, women com
posed 30.65 percent of new faculty,
but in 90-91, the percentage dropped
to 27 percent.
According to the report, a larger
percentage of women were hired in
the area of health affairs than in aca

Monast stressed that the bike trip was
not a vacation because the cyclists were
taking time off from school and work,

Sidney Smith, a German professor,

not because the University failed to
