students support a multicultural center
rather than a free-standing black cul
tural center, according to a poll con
ducted for The Daily Tar Heel.
Sociology graduate student Richard
Miech conducted the random sample
telephone poll for the DTH. The poll
included 303 student responses from a
target population of 400, for a total
response rate of 76 percent. Pollsters
interviewed students by telephone be
