The writers’ borough
By Claire Bennett
Amid controversy surrounding the University’s
handling of sexual assault cases, state legisla-
tors have proposed a bill that could conflict with
UNC’s student-run Honor Court’s mission.
Earlier this month, Rep. John Bell, R-Craven,
filed House Bill 843, which would grant students
the right to hire a professional lawyer to represent
them in cases of disciplinary misconduct.
Currently, students are allowed to be repre-
sented by only their
peers. When a criminal
case is concurrent with
an Honor Court case,
licensed attorneys are
permitted to accompa-
ny students — but they
can only confer with
students and cannot
address the panel.
The bill proposes
that any student or
charged with miscon-
duct at an institution
has the right to be rep-
resented by an attorney
during the case.
“The bill simply pro-
vides language guar-
anteeing that students
would be able to have
formal legal represen-
tation during any formal disciplinary procedure,”
said Rep. Jason Saine, R-Lincoln, one of the bill’s
sponsors, in an email.
“I feel it is important that students be empow-
ered to have representation in order to protect
their rights and reputations,” Saine said.
The bill has received bipartisan support, but
student leaders in the University’s honor system
have expressed concern about the measure.
Nathan Tilley, a chairman of the Honor Court,
said that attorneys are not part of the current
honor system because it is not their specialty.
“Attorneys are not trained like the counsels in
our system are, so they have less experience and
knowledge of our specific procedures — those
aspects of our process that might not directly
resemble general legal proceedings,” Tilley said in

Study shows NCAA model
may exploit student athletes
Sex tra∞ckers could
have to register in NC
By Marisa DiNovis
The NCAA outlines standards
intended to create a fair playing field
in Division I sports.
But conclusions drawn from a
recent study show the association’s
model could also be exploiting
athletes — particularly African-
American males who come from
lower socioeconomic classes and are
playing revenue-producing sports.
Richard Southall, director of the
University’s College Sport Research
Institute, presented this theory
Friday to a panel on the relation-
ship between Division I athletics
and academics led by Association
of American Universities President
According to NCAA guidelines,
Division I football and men’s basket-
ball players cannot profit from colle-
giate play and are instead supposed
to be “from exploitation by profes-
sional and commercial enterprises.”
But Southall said these athletes
might be exploited by not reaping
the benefits of the money they help
their schools earn — and, in some
cases, by being recruited to schools
that they may not be prepared for

An N.C. Senate bill requiring
convicted sex traffickers to register
as sex offenders in North Carolina
awaits Gov. Pat McCrory’s approval
— a proposal proponents say is the
first step to addressing a crime that
often remains hidden.
Senate Bill 122 requires those
convicted of sex trafficking or traf-
ficking minors to register as sex
offenders and wear GPS trackers.
The bill, which passed unani-
mously through the N.C. House
and Senate, will probably be
signed into law this week, said the
bill’s primary sponsor, Sen. Thom
Goolsby, R-New Hanover.
“We hope the bill helps potential
victims by identifying perpetrators
on the registry with the crime they
committed, creating awareness of
any danger they may pose,” he said.
The Polaris Project, a national
organization that raises awareness
about human trafficking, ranks
North Carolina as a top-10 state
for the crime. The bill will address
some of the state’s shortcomings
regarding the issue, said Sen. Ellie
The state tends to attract sex
trafficking because it hosts a large
agricultural industry, military base
and extensive transportation veins,

SEX TRAFFICKING BILLS
N.C. legislators have proposed
measures to combat sex traffick-
ing in the state:
The bill would require con-
victed sex traffickers to register as
sex offenders. It awaits Gov. Pat
Senate Bill 683 would stiffen
penalties for sex traffickers and
encourage victims to testify. It
will be passed to the judiciary
committee this week.
Richard Southall, director of the
College Sport Research Institute,
highlights findings including:
The majority of NCAA football
and men’s basketball players are
African-American males who come
from disproportionately lower
socioeconomic backgrounds than
Because of this socioeconomic
disparity, the student athletes
sometimes lack the necessary
college preparation to succeed
said Caitlyn Dixon, co-chairwoman
of Carolina Against Slavery and
Trafficking, a Campus Y group.
The bill is a significant step in
the right direction, Dixon said,
increasing awareness about human
trafficking by publicizing the per-
sonal information of offenders.
“It is progress because we are
finally getting people aware of it on
the local level, and it is one more
tool to dampen down this difficult
situation,” she said.
Senate Bill 683 — also known as
the Safe Harbor bill — is another
measure proposed by lawmakers to
combat sex trafficking.
Goolsby said the bill is more
comprehensive and stiffens penal-
ties for participants in sex traffick-
ing. A minor involved in sex traf-
ficking would not be held liable for

“As a writer I wanted a peace-
ful, quiet community. The his-
tory of the town mattered…”
writer, essayist and hillsborough resident
By Tyler Clay
On any given Tuesday night, live jazz
music permeates the walls of Antonia’s, a
small restaurant in Hillsborough.
Waiters carrying trays of Italian food
weave through the crowded dining room
and out onto the sidewalk cafe.
And at a corner table, award-winning
authors Michael Malone and Allan
Gurganus eat and discuss their latest work.
“We love it there. It’s like Paris, our own
cafe,” said Malone, a Hillsborough-based
novelist and Emmy-winning television writer.
When Malone bought his house in
Hillsborough more than a decade ago, he
joined a flourishing community of more
than a dozen nationally recognized novelists
and essayists who call Hillsborough home.
a Southern culture
Many writers cite Hillsborough’s loca-
tion, small size and Southern soul as rea-
sons why they located to the town.
“It’s just a great little town with tons
of writers. It’s remote, and though we are
close to downtown Hillsborough, it seems
removed from things,” said author Jill
McCorkle, who released her sixth novel in
March and lives in a renovated farmhouse
in Hillsborough with her husband.
This rural setting has attracted many of
the town’s writers.
“As a writer I wanted a peaceful, quiet
community. The history of the town mat-
tered to me and I chose the state capitol
from the 1750s,” said Gurganus, an influen-
tial novelist and essayist.
Malone also said authors tend to be
found in clusters.
“The more there are, the more there are
going to be,” he said.
And Hillsborough’s proximity to major
universities is also part of the attraction.
“Hillsborough has a lot of Southern writers
and is a very Southern town. The Southern
culture feeds their creative energy,” said UNC
alumnus John Claude Bemis, a children’s
novelist and the 2013 Piedmont Laureate.
a creative community
David Payne, who has authored five
books, said there is a sense of understand-
ing between writers in the community.
“I think everyone knows everyone else
and we see each other socially,” Payne
said. “I think people are also very respect-
ful of other writers’ privacy and give

Hillsborough attracts writers with its small-town feel

system that serves so many people so well.”

are African-American, and many
of those athletes come from lower
If athletes come from lower socio-
economic backgrounds, he said, they
might not have had as much aca-
demic support before college, and
they might have learning needs that
have not been addressed.
Southall said so much emphasis
is put on student athletes’ training
schedules that can require more
than 50 hours of practice per week,
making it harder for students who
might have to work more to keep up
The NCAA requires a student
athlete to complete at least 40 per-
cent of coursework for a degree by
the end of the his or her second year.
“Athletes that come from cultur-
ally distant settings come into an
environment where they’re not as
comfortable,” Southall said.
“But they’re also systematically
isolated because they are spend-
ing so much time training for their
sport. They can’t take time going
to lectures or listening to a poet
laureate. Their choices are limited
by the structure in which they find

professor of kinesiology at the

Bombing backlash concerns Muslims
By James Thorpe
Salma Rezk stepped outside after
watching the news of the Boston
Marathon bombings, fearful of the
stares her hijab would attract.
Rezk is one of many Muslim
students at UNC who says she
still experiences negative attitudes
toward Muslim Americans, 12 years
after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
UNC sociology professor Charles
Kurzman said surveys of the
American public suggest anti-Islam-
ic attitudes have continued to rise
“This isn’t the first time America
has faced a terrorist attack by
Muslim Americans, and I imagine
the response will not be all that dif-
ferent,” he said.
The suspects’ links with radi-
cal Islam are still not confirmed.
But earlier this week, the FBI
revealed that a foreign government
had requested information about
Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s links to radical
Islam in 2011.
Ali Sajjad, secretary of the Muslim
Students Association at N.C. State
University, said he was concerned old
attitudes would reemerge.
“We always worry about back-
lash,” he said.
The attack April 15 killed three
people and injured more than 200,
according to FBI statistics.
The suspects, Tamerlan Tsarnaev
and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, have links
to the predominantly Muslim region
of Chechnya, Russia.
“Initially, before the suspects were
found, I’m pretty sure more than half
of the American citizens thought this
was a terrorist act done by some radi-
cal Muslim,” Sajjad said.
Aya Zouhri, a member of UNC-
CH’s Muslim Students Association,
said those who carry out terror-
ist attacks do not represent the
Islamic values of the vast majority of
A 2010 study by the Pew Research
Center found that Muslims made up
0.8 percent of the U.S. population.
Cemil Aydin, a history professor
at UNC, said American Muslims are
often the target of suspicion and dis-
“So many people in America have
negative opinions of Muslims,” he
Sajjad said his club’s recent events
were well received by the UNC com-
munity, and the group would con-
tinue to educate people about Islam.
President Barack Obama said at
an interfaith service in Boston last
week that Americans stand unified.
“Our faith in each other, our love
for each other, our love for country,
our common creed that cuts across
whatever superficial differences there
may be — that is our power,” he said.
Zouhri said she would be praying
for the victims of the bombings.
“It is an opportunity to show
support and condemn the act of
violence — equating Islam with vio-
lence is ridiculous,” she said.

WOMEN’S TENNiS: UNC 4, BC 0
dth file/halle sinnott
Taylor Mac, center, performs the role of the Emcee in Playmakers’“Cabaret.” He performed a section of his work, ”The 1780s,” on Monday.
By Andrew Tie
On a cold and windy day in Chestnut Hill, Mass., the
weather was the smallest of obstacles the No. 1 North
Carolina women’s tennis team had faced in the last few
days. The team carried the same unfazed mentality it
used this past weekend to defeat No. 63 Boston College
Monday and claim the outright ACC regular season title.
In the 4-0 victory against the Eagles (9-9, 3-7 ACC),
the Tar Heels (24-2, 10-1 ACC) took
the doubles point along with singles
wins from freshman Whitney Kay
and seniors Lauren McHale and Zoe
On Sunday, UNC clinched at least a
share of the ACC regular season title,
but senior Gina Suarez-Malaguti said
the team didn’t want to share.
“We’ve worked so hard, and just
in comparison to those teams, we’ve
really shown we’re the better team,”
Suarez-Malaguti said. “We’re classier,
more athletic, feistier, more competi-
tive, so after all that hard work, to
share that with a team that we don’t
consider as tough as we are is sad.”
Had the Tar Heels lost Monday or elected not to return
to Boston after having Friday’s match postponed, they
would have shared the regular season title with Clemson
and UVa., the only ACC team UNC lost to this season.
“(Coach Brian Kalbas) asked us if we wanted to come
back to Boston or share the title with UVa. or Clemson,
and we’re like, ‘No, we don’t care if we miss classes on
Monday,’” McHale said. “Whatever it takes, we wanted
to come here and win.”
Kalbas reflected on the season, and said senior lead-
ership, depth and chemistry have been the keys to win-
ning an indoor national championship in February and
now the ACC regular season, Kalbas’ second at UNC.
After a long road trip that saw the team fly to
Massachusetts, then to Maryland and then back up to
Massachusetts, the Tar Heels said they’re exhausted and
looking forward to returning to Chapel Hill.
“We’ve flown four out of the last five days, so it’s
amazing how our team’s been able to handle the rigors
of going hotel to hotel, the difficult circumstances (with
the lockdown) and playing back-to-back days,” Kalbas
said. “We got into our hotel at 11:30 last night — it was
a long weekend.”
For now, the Tar Heels can rest as champions, but the
turnaround will be quick. Suarez-Malaguti said the key
for this week is to get prepared mentally and physically.
“Everyone is going to come at us,” Suarez-Malaguti
said. “We’re the big target. We have to be ready for that
and bring our ‘A’ game all the time. I have no doubt that
we’re going to do amazingly.”

see a funny show.” My job isn’t to teach
them, but it’s just to remind them of stuff
they’ve forgotten or dismissed.
DTH: Why is it important for you to
push the envelope through your perfor-
mances and theatrical pursuits?
TM: What I think is important is to
honor what has come before but to
remind people they are in the present
moment — so not to get dragged down
by what has come before — then to use
that information to help bring the culture
forward, to inspire the audience to go out
into the world and do things, and to make
their own world and their own culture.
To surprise people is very important.
Sometimes that looks like pushing the
envelope. Surprising people opens people
up and makes them feel and makes them
think about things. I don’t think the the-
ater should be comfortable — I think it
should be a dangerous place. But not so
dangerous that you go into a coma.
DTH: How do you come up with the
elaborate costuming used in your shows?
TM: I grew up in suburbia. In my town
there was a real emphasis on everyone fit-
ting in and being the same and looking the
same. That also melted into the aesthetics
— there was a real homogeneity.
I rebelled against that — I’m rebelling
against the homogeneity.
The idea is to create a multifaceted
experience for people. The outfits become
masculine and feminine, and they
become extraordinary and messy and
detailed and colorful and bland and ugly
and beautiful. They become everything
that we are as human beings.
DTH: Can you relate to the Emcee
in “Cabaret” in any way, or do you just
immerse yourself in his character?
TM: I’m primarily playing him from the
perspective of being a cabaret performer
myself, and also as somebody who was
living at a time and working at a time
right after Sept. 11 in New York City.
A lot of our civil liberties were taken
away from us, which is very similar to
the situation that was happening with
the Germans and the cabaret performers
during the Weimar Republic era.
I relate to the character a lot and
what the character is going through. I
say there’s no point in doing “Cabaret” if
we’re not going to treat it like a warning
as to what can happen to our country.
There are movements in our country
that are trying to make everything the
same and decide the morality for others
and the laws for others that are based on
very strict Puritan tradition. That’s not
what America’s about.
I mean I’ ll just say it flat-out. I think
the Tea Party is really horrible and is a
great danger to our country. People who
are in line with that, who are supporting
that and the economic disparity that’s in
our country, are part of what was happen-
ing in Germany.
We have to fight against that — becom-
ing what the Germans became. I’m trying
to help us not go down that road.
DTH: Why do you think the arts are an
important aspect of the educational scene
at a public liberal arts college like UNC?
TM: Without the arts, there would be
no real joy. Creation is a great thing. In
America, we are getting away from cre-
ating, and we are moving toward shuf-
fling. Our brightest minds are going to
universities that are teaching them how
to shuffle money, like that’s how to be a
We need innovation, and creativity
is innovation. We need it. We need to
inspire it, we need to teach it, we need

single day. That is the way we become a

that’s the way you get closer to God. By

Free Microsoft classes available for UNC
By Neal Smith
Students looking for
guidance on how to use
different computer programs
can now get their questions
answered online in a new
program by Information
Last week, ITS launched
its version of the Microsoft
IT Academy, a collection
of free courses that aims to
teach participants how to use
Microsoft computer programs.
At UNC, students, faculty or
staff with an Onyen and pass-
word can register.
“You can take an online
course for Excel, for
PowerPoint,” said Priscilla
Alden, assistant vice
chancellor for user support
Greg Neville, the University’s
supervisor who launched the
program, said there are more
than 2,000 courses offered.
Titles range from “What’s new
in MS Word 2010,” to “Server-
Side Code for Web Forms.”
“I would really like to see
people here at UNC utilize IT
Academy to help teach UNC
students the different Microsoft
programs and applications,”
Alden said the courses are
self-taught and self-paced,
and all the instruction is done
“If you started a course, and
then you had to leave and come
back to where you left off, you
could,” she said.
Courses are available on
the ITS website, and users can
register through ITS at any
time by requesting an access
code through an online form,
She said the program was
adapted to make it accessible to
anyone affiliated with UNC.
“What we did was tailor it a
little bit, by offering things that
people on campus could use,”
She said these online courses
do not count for academic
credit, but they do teach a
variety of special skills.
Students can take courses
to become certified in different
areas, she said.
But she said the experience
is different with each course.
Alden said the academy
has courses that count toward
becoming a Microsoft Certified
Systems Engineer, for exam-
“There’s courses you could
take toward that certification
if a person wanted to do that
certification,” she said.
Courses from the academy
help students prepare for final
certification tests, which are
offered externally, she said.
Sharon Glover, a customer
relations employee at ITS, said
The Microsoft iT
Academy offers 2,000
the courses also allow small
group work, which will be ben-
eficial to students who want to
learn software together.
Glover said she took courses
in the academy to help with the
program’s testing and set-up.
“I liked it because I could
start and then take it for 30
minutes, and return two to
three days later right where I
left off,” she said.
She said the program offers
a wide range of courses for
“You might only need a
small tune-up,” she said. “But
you can build skills in areas you
may not be as familiar with.”

State could further limit access to abortion
By Kelly Anderson
The N.C. General Assembly
could place Gov. Pat McCrory
in a bind if it sends a series
of bills to his desk that critics
say would limit access to
McCrory, who campaigned
as a moderate Republican
in the 2012 gubernatorial
election, pledged to not
sign any new bills affecting
abortions in the state.
But after the legislature
passed new regulations
affecting abortions in 2011,
lawmakers have proposed
a series of new measures
this session. The bills would
prohibit abortions based on
sex and provide protections
for physicians who choose not
to perform abortions, among
John Dinan, political
science professor at Wake
Forest University, said in
an email that ideological
leanings will likely not be the
deciding factor in McCrory’s
decisions on the legislation.
He said McCrory will
probably govern on an issue-
by-issue basis, and more will
be revealed when the bills
emerge from the legislature.
The bills would amend the

bill could create inequality
between students and faculty.
Sturkey said the bill only
specifies the right of a student
to a licensed attorney and
does not mention faculty.
Faculty are also represented
by a student counsel before
the Honor Court.
But Saine said he is more
concerned about ensuring
that students have a right
to a lawyer if they want one,
rather than how the bill could

Sturkey said she does not

the bill could undermine the

Several Carrboro residents
and police officers came out
Monday night to give input on
qualities they would like to see
in Carrboro’s new police chief.
About 10 attendees at the

goals for the future chief,
ranging from a good person-
ality to an understanding of
the community’s diversity.

hires will replace outgoing
Carrboro Police Chief Carolyn
Hutchison, who is stepping

years with the department.
The discussion was led
by Steve Straus, president of

hired by the town to lead the
search for the new chief.
Straus said candidates are
recruited for the position, and
there are currently less than
50 applicants for the job.

for the Carrboro Bicycle

Chapel Hill may build veterans memorial
By Caroline Hudson
War veterans could soon be
getting more recognition after
the Chapel Hill Town Council
voted Monday night to pro-
ceed with plans for a town
Former council member Jim
Merritt petitioned the council
in 2009 to build a memorial in
honor of local veterans.
Butch Kisiah, director
of Chapel Hill’s Parks and
Recreation Department, said
a committee of local veteran
group representatives and res-
idents is hoping to raise about
$300,000 for the memorial.
The committee has pro-
posed the brick plaza area
of the Chapel Hill Memorial
Cemetery as the location for
The memorial is expected
to include five pillars to rep-
resent the five branches of the
U.S. Armed Forces.
“This is a really important
piece of ground,” Kisiah said.
He said the committee is
working to keep maintenance
costs low, although it is too
early to know what the exact
costs will be.
He said the committee
wants to make the memorial
a reasonable size.
“It would fit within that
cemetery,” he said. “It’s to be
Chapel Hill resident and
World War II veteran Robert
Patton strongly supported
building a veterans memorial
before he died on April 11.
Lee Heavlin, Patton’s
friend of 20 years, said
Patton started advocating
for memorials after visiting
a mass unmarked grave in
In 2012, Patton received
France’s Legion of Honor, the
country’s highest distinction.
Heavlin said Patton’s regi-
ment helped liberate prison-
ers in a concentration camp
“It was a concentration
camp where you didn’t come
home,” Heavlin said.
He said there are
many descendants of the
camp survivors living in the
Chapel Hill-Durham area.
Jim Stallings, a Carrboro
resident and member of
Veterans of Foreign Wars and
The American Legion, said he
supports the memorial plan.
Stallings served in the
Korean War and said many
people don’t know much
about America’s role in the
war, but he’d like that to

Upon hearing the news of
Appalachian State University
Chancellor Kenneth Peacock’s
impending resignation, ASU
sophomore Ellie Simpson
reflected on his reputation
among the student body.
She said there is a gen-
eral sense that he is highly
respected and will be missed.

means to be a Mountaineer,”

from his position of nearly a
Ross said in a state-
ment that he reluctantly
accepted Peacock’s decision
and praised the chancellor’s
accomplishments during his
time at ASU.
“In countless ways, he will
leave Appalachian stronger
than he found it, and that’s
quite a legacy in and of itself,”
Joni Worthington, spokes-
woman for the system, said
the search for a new chancel-
lor will be conducted accord-
ing to the university code, and
Peacock will be involved.
“He made his intentions
known well in advance so that
there would be adequate time
for a search to be conducted,”
Simpson said students
have been sad to hear of
Peacock’s resignation, but she
expects he will leave the uni-
versity in good hands.
“I’m sure he will not hand
over the position to anyone
less than deserving,” she said.
Simpson said Peacock is
invested in and interacts with
every student on campus.
“If you wave at him, he will
treat you as if you guys go way
back,” she said.
Peacock said he isn’t leav-
ing until the right person is
found to be his successor.
“It was important to me
that this transition be smooth
and that nobody is rushed,”
He said the decision to step
down wasn’t easy, but he is
looking forward to the next
chapter in his life.
“I don’t know what it’s going
to be, I don’t know where it’s
going to be, but I know it’s
going to be exciting,” he said.
“I want two months to sit,
unwind and read,” he said.
Simpson said Peacock has
advocated for his students
and accepts only the best.
“He will be greatly missed
on this campus, but we really
appreciate his time here and
all that he’s done for this uni-
versity,” she said.

Death penalty possible
for Boston bomber
(MCT) — The Justice
Department on Monday
charged Boston Marathon
bombing suspect Dzhokhar
Tsarnaev with using a weapon
of mass destruction, a charge
that could bring the death
In a criminal complaint
initially filed under seal, and
then unsealed in federal
court in Boston, prosecutors
charged Tsarnaev with one
count of using and conspiring
to use a WMD and one count
of malicious destruction of
property by means of an explo-
sive device resulting in death.
Tsarnaev, 19, had his initial
court appearance Monday
from his hospital room.
“Although our investigation
is ongoing, today’s charges
bring a successful end to a
tragic week for the city of
Boston, and our country,” said
Attorney General Eric Holder.
The charges were unsealed
the same day that White
House spokesman Jay Carney
said the Obama administra-
tion had determined that it
wouldn’t designate Tsarnaev
as an enemy combatant.
Tsarnaev will be repre-
sented by the federal public
Along with his older
brother, Tamerlan, who was
killed early Friday in a shoot-
out with police, Tsarnaev is
suspected of planting the two

Advocate for rural
public charter schools
TO THE EDITOR:
Public charter schools in
rural North Carolina pres-
ent an opportunity for more
school choice options and
economic development in
the state’s 85 rural counties.
Parental school choice
gives parents the freedom
to meet their children’s
needs regardless of income
or address. This value
should be a priority in all
North Carolina communi-
ties, especially given the
majority of public charter
schools are in urban coun-
ties, specifically in Wake
and Mecklenburg counties.
Advocating for rural pub-
lic charter schools ensures
that education resources
are available throughout
the state while providing
opportunities within disad-
In North Carolina, rural
public charter schools
represent 56 of the current
107 charters while charter
schools are only in 12 of
the 40 most economically
disadvantaged counties in
to be a high priority for
North Carolina residents
and expanding educational
opportunities in rural areas
would have a strong impact
and effect in the immediate
For example, opening a
public charter school may
increase local job oppor-
tunities, spur creative use
of existing infrastructure,
incentivize community col-
laborations and increase
access to local resources.
While increasing public
charter schools in rural
communities could benefit
many, the idea also presents
challenges, according to the
National Alliance for Public
Charter Schools “Beyond
City Limits” Issue Brief.
One challenge is the bud-
getary constraints, which is
always a concern because
rural schools are often lim-
ited in funds due to high
operating costs and some-
times limited tax revenue.
However, public char-
ter schools bring a diverse
public and private revenue
stream to the community
through foundations, non-
profit organizations and pri-
vate donors. Secondly, due
to budgetary constraints
and commonly limited
capacity, there are limited
course offerings available in
rural public schools.
Meanwhile, public charter
schools can help to integrate
services and curriculums
between established charter
helping to lower the cost to
Another challenge is the
difficulty of teacher and

schools, in partnership
with a charter management
organization or leadership
incubator, could broaden

hostility been this pronounced.
From the infamous (and
unconstitutional) 1963 Speaker
Ban law targeting communists
to the bill filed earlier this
month to block gender-neutral
housing, conservatives in the
legislature have always been
fond of meddling with UNC
when it’s an easy political target.
The late U.S. Sen. Jesse
Helms (R-N.C.) was notorious
for bashing UNC’s radical
tendencies in the 1960s. GOP
mega-donor and current head
budget writer Art Pope has
used his family foundation to
generously support the John
William Pope Center for Higher
Education Policy, UNC’s most
The opening salvo this year
was the resounding backlash
against Republican Gov. Pat
McCrory’s disparaging remarks
about UNC gender studies
majors and the merits (or lack
thereof) of a liberal arts degree.
I wonder who GOP lawmakers
had in mind when they filed a
bill to make it harder for college
students to vote.
For the first time since the
1800s, the GOP has unchecked
power to set higher education
policy, write the budget and
appoint the UNC-system Board
of Governors. It’s an unprec-
edented opportunity for critics
to flex their political muscle to
reshape the University in their
Veteran Democratic strate-
gist Gary Pearce noted last
week: “Chapel Hill is an
essential element of North
Carolina’s progressive tradi-
tion. Which is why it’s in the
crosshairs.” Pearce described
the current acrimony as “the
Speaker Ban Law sequel.”
The response has been loud
and angry. Student activists
created the N.C. Student Power
Union last year as a vehicle
for protest. Professors formed
Scholars for a Progressive
North Carolina to denounce the
GOP’s policy agenda.
Outgoing Chancellor Holden
Thorp has vociferously opposed
McCrory’s call for big tuition
hikes for out-of-state students.
Provost Bruce Carney described
the proposal to redirect that
money to the state’s general
fund as morally indefensible.
Even the appointment of
environmental scientist Carol
Folt as UNC’s next chancellor
feels like a sharp rebuttal to
a Republican majority that’s
not so keen on science or
the environment these days.
Remember, House Speaker
Thom Tillis reportedly said
last year his dream is “to fire
all the chancellors and replace
them with general managers.”
Folt is a renowned Ivy League
researcher, not a corporate CEO.
tor Chub Seawell famously
summed up right-wing skepti-
cism about UNC as the state’s
liberal bastion: Why should
North Carolina build a zoo
when the state could just put
up a fence around Chapel Hill?
With no end in sight for the
battle between Republicans
and UNC, I’m inclined to
start building a fence around
the Legislative Building in
Raleigh. Who’s with me?

bill with potential ramifi-
cations that could destroy
the UNC honor system.
This bill intends to bol-

would leave the honor

it could be used to inject
attorneys into a student-
run honor system.
At UNC-CH, accused
students receive counsel
from members of the stu-
dent attorney general’s staff
and are tried by other stu-
dents. But this isn’t the case
at other schools across the
system where the judicial
system isn’t student-run.
This could lead to dis-
crepancies between those
students who could afford
to hire attorneys and those
who could not. It could
also create a situation

the recent years’

it only made sense for the

foundational issue — and
one the athletics panel
could publicize — is the
one most directly affecting
those who make college
athletics what it is: athletes.
This editorial board
can definitively say that
University athletes should
be paid, and have the right
to make money using their
names and likenesses.
This should happen for
two reasons: to eliminate
inequitable treatment and
reward the invaluable con-
tributions big-time ath-
letes give to their schools.
As of now, the NCAA
is a multi-billion dollar
business. And who drives
it? The athletes, of course.
In fact, athletes are the
only students on campus
who can’t earn money off
their own name or like-
ness. Jay Bilas, an ESPN
analyst and former Duke
basketball player, rightly
told the panel this is a
conceptual and moral
problem. Athletes should
be able to market them-
selves just like any other
student on campus.
Universities and the
NCAA are making money
hand-over-fist off the
marketability of their star
athletes. And the athletes
themselves come up empty.
College athletes are fun-
damental to the success of
their schools, whose pres-
tige, image and fundraising
are often dependent on the
success of their athletes in
the field or on the court.
It’s time to embrace this
fact and level the playing
field for all students — and
that includes the athletes.
