Writing program loses funding

Morgan Writer-in-Residence Program has brought 20 authors to UNC.
By Katelyn Trela
Arts Editor


After 20 years and 20 renowned authors, UNCs Morgan Writer-in-Residence Program has lost its funding. Beverly Taylor, chairwoman for the English and comparative literature department, said the program does not have funding past this year. Alumni Allen and Musette Morgan began the annual literary program in 1993, but could not continue to donate and keep the program alive. They have only and always expressed real pleasure and pride in the program, Taylor said. The program brought estabAthol Fugard is lished novelists, playwrights the Morgan Writer- and poets among other writers to campus to teach workin-Residence this shops, meet with students and year. The Morgans will no longer fund faculty, and provide a keynote lecture. the program. Joan Didion, Amy Hempel and this years Athol Fugard are among the writers to have participated in the program. Fugard will be the programs 20th writer. Taylor said the program has become a staple not only for the English department, but for the campus and Chapel Hill community. Michael McFee, assistant department chairman for English and comparative literature, said the department is sorry to see the program go. It has become a spring tradition, he said. Susan Irons, a lecturer in the department, said she hopes someone will pick up the task to keep the program running. The exact amount of annual funding was not disclosed, but McFee said it was substantial. Part of the allotment was used each fall to help with the Thomas Wolfe Prize and reading, McFee said. The prize which was established in 1999 with an endowment to the English department is awarded to one contemporary artist with wellregarded work each year, McFee said. It will continue, he said, but at a more conservative level than in the past. Irons said the Morgans have been incredibly generous for the past two decades. They blazed a wonderful trail.

Chapel Hills iconic bar has been purchased by a pair who frequented Hes Not in college.

Matt Mehok,
UnC alumnus and new owner of hes not

After weeks of speculation about the future of Hes Not Here, the new owners have completed their acquisition of the iconic Chapel Hill bar. Bennett Roberts and Matt Mehok finalized their purchase Thursday, replacing owner of more than 40 years David Kitzmiller. Both were regular patrons of the bar throughout their college years. Mehok worked there in 1991 and Roberts began dating his wife in the summer of his sophomore year after seeing her at the bar. It was a place where everyone wanted to go to break away from reality, Mehok said. Mehok, who graduated from UNC in 1993, played football at the University and was introduced to Roberts the first day of fresh-

man year by a teammate. Roberts attended Elon University, but said that because he grew up in Durham, he had close ties with Chapel Hill. Mehok, Bennett and Kitzmiller were outside on the balcony, relaxing with their families, enjoying the warm weather and celebrating the finalized sale, on Thursday afternoon. The new owners said they thought about buying the bar as many as four years ago. In January, after the bar came onto the market, they said they knew they had to take advantage of the opportunity. There was no doubting once he said it, we were both in, Roberts said. This wont be the first time the owners have managed local businesses. Roberts works with a food brokerage com-

pany that sells to stores in five states. Mehok worked for a consulting business before founding Bull City BBQ, a company that produces bottled sauces and barbecue rubs. Both said they will continue their other businesses but will focus on Hes Not Here by maintaining a regular presence at the bar. Its important to have a consistent face in the community, Mehok said. Roberts said they want to keep the atmosphere but make changes for the better. There was a sense that we lost our mojo in the past few years, Mehok said. We want to bring it back. They said they want to update social media outlets and fix the bathrooms.

The case will decide the legality of using race in college admissions.
Less than a decade after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the use of race as a factor in college admissions, a new case could reverse that decision, affecting public universities nationwide. The Supreme Court decided last week to hear the case Fisher v. University of Texas, which will again raise the question of whether the use of race in college admissions is constitutional. Abigail Fisher, a white high school student, filed a suit against the University of Texas at Austin in 2008 after being

Forty years after a major milestone for African-Americans at UNC, the Universitys black males are suffering from exceptionally low graduation rates. Richard Epps, who is now deceased, became the Universitys first black student body president 40 years ago today, during a time when barely 60 black students walked the campus, said Pam Campbell-Chisholm, a friend of Epps. Epps success was a testament to UNCs growing accessibility for African-Americans. But today University administrators have shifted their focus to a different concern fostering aca-

Charter school approved by state board

Howard and Lillian Lee Scholars Charter plans to open in August.
By Jeanna Smialek
City Editor

applicants that can open in the state next school year. Application materials state that the school, which will partner with for-profit management company National Heritage Academies, will serve minorities and tackle the achievement gap.

A new charter school has approval to open in Chapel Hill this August, despite the wishes of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools district and NAACP. The State Board of Education approved the Howard and Lillian Lee Scholars Charter School application Thursday, making the school one of nine fast-track

Next steps
William Harrison, chairman of the State Board of Education, said approved applicants will meet with advisers later in March to discuss procedures, timelines and technicalities. The schools must then meet conditions like providing a

certificate of occupancy for the building where they will locate by July 1 to receive funds to open their doors in August. Harrison said though three of the schools passed easily, the Lee Charter School was one of six that the board questioned. He said board members werent sure Chapel Hill needed another elementary school, because it already has plans to open Elementary 11 in Northside. But he said because need wasnt part of the criteria used to evaluate proposals, it passed. That really wasnt an issue that was addressed in the local statutes, he said.

He said though the board has recommended that the N.C. Public Charter School Advisory Council readdress its evaluation criteria for future applicants, currently the board examines an applicants financial and educational plans, among other criteria.

Controversial decision
Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board of Education Superintendent Tom Forcella and the local branch of the NAACP have openly opposed the school, saying it will decrease diversity and that district progress in closing the achievement gap makes it

unnecessary. But Chapel Hill-Carrboro board Chairwoman Mia Day Burroughs said in a release that the board accepts the passage. In the end, our mission is to ensure that each of our students gets the best possible education. We will continue to focus all our efforts and resources on achieving that, she said. John Betterton, a charter school administrator and chairman of the council that recommended nine charters to the state board from a pool of 27 applicants, said he believes the school will serve minority needs. If this school does not serve

al students to the council. Its important for us to cooperate with groups like Homeland Security so we can help them understand that open inquiry to campuses is an important value to us, Thorp said. Wayne Lee, chairman of the peace, war and defense curriculum, said in an email that the one way in which the Department of Homeland Security and higher education intersect is through research and development. (The Department of Homeland Security) obviously relies on technologies derived from university and business research for much of what it does, to mention only the most obvious: airport screening, he said. I would hope that one thing higher educators can do is to constantly remind (the Department of Homeland Security) of the rights of citizens, even as it seeks to protect citizens. Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Bruce Carney said Thorps involvement in national issues helps promote the University. Were known by our graduates and by our faculty and hes both, he said. The chancellor has a lot of expertise and a lot of interest in national security. Contact the University Editor at

longtime modern dance professor leaves her post

By Hayley Paytes
Staff Writer

The Department of Homeland Security is the latest arm of the federal government to seek the advice of UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp. On Thursday, Thorp was appointed to the departments new academic advisory council by U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. Thorp is one of 19 leaders from higher education appointed to the group, which will advise Napolitano on topics like security preparedness and international students. The secretarys office asked if I wanted to be on this group and I think its good for Homeland Security to have good connection to the academic community, Thorp said. I was honored that she asked me to do that and Im happy to help our government any way I can. This is just the latest appointment to a national policy group for Thorp, who is a member of the National Advisory Council on Innovation and Entrepreneurship. He was also among a group of leaders from higher education to meet with President Barack Obama in December about college affordability. Thorp said he will stress a commitment to open access to higher education for internation-

At the end of the spring semester, the University will lose its only modern dance professor. Though she will be replaced by a former student, her departure signals the end of the golden age of dance at UNC. In the 1970s, when Marian Hopkins first became a professor, there were 22 sections of dance offered, she said. Now, Hopkins is one of two dance professors and the only one teaching modern dance. Modern dance, Hopkins said, is different from ballet, the other dance style offered at UNC, because the movements are more organic. For those who do it, it is a feeling that you get, she said. You feel very passionate. It feels good to you so good that

when you are not doing it, you miss it. Arthritis inhibits Hopkins from performing modern dance, but she said she feels gratified watching her students grow. I feel there is something within their bodies that I have helped them to find and that will stay with them, she said. Hopkins said dancing is not so much a physical activity as it is a necessary part of life, especially for the dancers she advises in the Modernextension Dance Company. For Hopkins, this makes the lack of a dance major at UNC more distressing. The administration has always felt that dance has appropriately existed at UNCGreensboro and at the (UNC) School of the Arts, she said. They overlook the fact that this is the main campus and

that many students want to go here. Christine Jackson, co-president of Modernextension, said the lack of dance at a university that otherwise excels in the liberal arts is nonsensical. There are a lot of dancers who are frustrated, Jackson said. The decision to come to UNC means sacrificing dance. Sherry Salyer, director of undergraduate studies in the exercise and sport science department, said in an email that although a committee in 2010 considered creating a dance minor at UNC, the proposal was shelved due to the economic climate. Erin Sanderson, the other co-president of Modernextension, said many dancers must come to terms with the fact that they will no

longer dance. For Marian, it is now, she said. For me, it is this year, too. But Hopkins said she will never stop dancing. After her retirement, Hopkins said she will again focus on her body after 32 years spent helping students come into their own. I will have more time for pilates now for my own fitness, she said. But for Hopkins, Jackson and Sanderson, nothing can compare to modern dance. Most of us cant imagine life without dance, Sanderson said. You cant just stop and go running. The thing about running is that it is just one step in front of the other. There is no musicality. Contact the University Editor at

University tests Turnitin via pilot program

The software, which detects plagiarism, may be applied schoolwide.
By Robert Bryan
Staff Writer

If the response from students and professors is positive, UNC might implement a plagiarism detection software schoolwide. But like the pilot, the full program if implemented will be optional, said Todd Zakrajsek, executive director of the Center for Faculty Excellence. As part of an ongoing review of the honor system, officials are considering Turnitin, which compares submitted student papers against a database of academic journals, web pages and other student papers. This week, emails were sent to

students in participating classes, explaining that students could decline without any negative consequences. Zakrajsek said the program is optional because that is typically how Turnitin is run. Talking to people at other schools, they said that not many people opt out, Zakrajsek said. Eighteen professors are participating in the pilot, he said. We developed a purposeful sample, making sure we covered all over campus. Most professors stepped up when we asked to be a part of it. Amanda Claire Grayson, who will become student attorney general April 3, said Turnitin can still be effective in catching plagiarism. I think it will be more effective because it is a blanket approach, she said. Theoretically, it would catch

all students instead of just those professors who choose to check. But Grayson said the program will not affect the honor systems process for evaluating claims of plagiarism. Well still go through and scrutinize the paper against the alleged source, she said. Junior journalism major Alyssandra Barnes, who is in a participating class, said she opted out. The only students who will use it will be over-concerned and probably wouldnt have needed the technology anyways, Barnes said in an email. Lucila Vargas, a professor in the journalism school participating in the pilot, said she typically uses her intuition to determine if material is plagiarized. Students who want to plagiarize will opt out. But it does

I think it will be more effective because it is a blanket approach.

Student attorney general

take a lot of time to do a Google search, so it will certainly be less time-consuming (for me), she said. Zakrajsek said additional class sections will be added to the pilot through summer school. He said officials will then analyze student survey opinions and usage data and then decide whether or not to implement Turnitin campuswide. Contact the University Editor at

Members of the UNCsystem Association of Student Governments returned from a two-day lobbying trip to the nations capital Wednesday night. The nine students, including ASG President Atul Bhula, went to Washington, D.C., to lobby legislators for increased higher education spending and federal financial aid. Many members said the $1,300 trip was a success. I think we were very effective, Bhula said. A lot of (the legislators) understand and took everything into consideration. It helps that we have North Carolina in some of the leadership for education. The group met with U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan, U.S. Rep. David Price and U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx who is the chairwoman of a U.S. Congress subcommittee on higher education. I always try to meet with university students, and enjoyed meeting and hearing the opinions of the UNCSystem Association of Student Governments, Foxx said in a statement. It is encouraging to see students take an interest in government, and I am glad they had the opportunity to travel to Washington to experience Congress first hand. The trip was funded from the associations budget. ASG is

made up of delegates from all 17 UNC-system schools and is funded by a $1 annual student feel. Bhula said members of ASG advocated for Pell grants, student loans and research dollars for undergraduates by sharing personal stories with the representatives. I probably wouldnt be in the UNC system today if it wasnt for Pell grants for my undergraduate... and there were a few people who came that were in the same boat, Bhula said. Alecia Page, a student at Western Carolina University who went on the trip, said she received mixed reactions from the legislators. Some disagreed more than others, she said. Hopefully they will act according to what we requested. But Christine Hajdin, vice president of ASGs legislative and public affairs committee, said she was surprised at how receptive the legislators were. They really couldnt get over the students coming up and talking to them, she said. They invited us for coffee. They were extremely excited for us to be there. Page said the associations last trip to Washington, D.C. was three years ago, and this trip was more successful. We didnt see the results that we saw this time, she said. We were successful because we have more of a case to make than they did three years ago. Staff Writer Kate Caison contributed to reporting. Contact the State & National Editor at

Nursing school ArtsCenter hosts two-part production cuts enrollment

By Megan Cassella
Staff Writer

The effects of last years budget cuts to the School of Nursing were revealed with the release of the schools admissions decisions Wednesday. The nursing school sent acceptance letters to only 96 undergraduate students out of a pool of 400 applicants accepting 64 fewer students than last year, said Katherine Moore, director of admissions and student services at the school. In an effort to maintain program quality in the face of decreased funding, the school decided last year to reduce enrollment by 25 percent, Moore said. To speed up the reduction process, the school now admits students only once a year rather than twice, putting all the pressure into one round of decisions. This is the first cycle of the once-a-year pattern, so this was a much larger number of acceptances than either cycle last year, Moore said. But that was expected. Overall, only 24 percent of this years applicants were admitted, versus 33 percent in each of the past two years. The decreased program size has made the selection process even more difficult for the admissions committee, said Beverly Foster, director of the undergraduate program in the School of Nursing.

Its a very difficult decision for faculty, Foster said. They spend a long time making the decision so that we end up with a class that is academically talented, has a variety of skills and experiences and is dedicated to service. Its not just about academics, she said. While turning away students is not easy, it is better than accepting more students and overstretching the programs budget, Moore said. It would be our hope that we could restore enrollment to previous levels, she said. We need nurses all over this country, and the more that we can produce in a quality fashion, the better for society it is. But one benefit of the smaller size is that is has made prospective students work even harder, applicants said. I spent a lot more time on the essay part of the application because that was the part I knew I could change, said Kasey Huffman, a sophomore who was just accepted to the program. The competitive application process, while stressful, made the acceptance that much more gratifying, said Brooke Foster, who was also accepted. I have always wanted to be a nurse, she said. Getting in was a better feeling than even getting into UNC.

Location: Carrboro ArtsCenter Cost: $10 to $18

A work by a Tony Awardwinning playwright and a piece by UNC alumni make up the most recent production by StreetSigns Center for Literature and Performance. Acts of Witness which opens tonight at the Carrboro ArtsCenter features Athol Fugards Blood Knot, as well as the multimedia event Poetic Portraits of a Revolution from two UNC graduates. Fugard, who just finished directing a revival of Blood Knot in New York City, will visit Chapel Hill in late March as the 2012 Morgan Writer-inResidence. Elisabeth Lewis Corley, a producer at StreetSigns, said Fugards upcoming visit was the impetus for the production. We heard he was coming and felt it was wrong to not have one of Fugards plays on display while he was here, Corley said. His work merits our full attention. The story of Blood Knot focuses on two half-brothers living in South Africa during apartheid. One appears white and the other appears black, which fuels the plays conflict. Joseph Megel, artist-in-resContact the University Editor idence in the communications at department, is the director for both parts of the production.

The show will star J. Alphonse Nicholson, who has performed with PlayMakers Repertory Company, and Lucius Robinson, a UNC alumnus. Nicholson plays the black brother, Zachariah. His first professional acting performance was with Robinson, and he said he has loved working with him again. I learn a lot from him, and every day we find something new in the play, Nicholson said. He also said that though the play is set in a specific historical context, the work is timeless. The language is very contemporary and everyone can relate to the characters in many ways, Nicholson said. Recent graduates and Sacrificial Poets members Kane Smego and Will McInerney created the second part of the production, Poetic Portraits of a Revolution. The work uses spoken word, music, photos and video to tell stories of the recent political uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia. Smego and McInerney visited the two countries last summer. We like to think of Poetic Portraits as picking up where Blood Knot left off, McInerney said. The same issues still resonate with the events today. Corley said the two works were

a natural pairing. Theres something extraordinary in the connection between Fugards work and the work these young people are doing, she said. Corley also said the plays can reveal much about todays world.

These plays are talking to each other, she said. The message theyre giving us is not about there and then but here and now. Contact the Arts Editor at

within the boundaries of the 2003 case Grutter v. Bollinger, which upheld the University of Michigans use of affirmative action in admissions to their law school. (Grutter ruled that) the nations future depends upon leaders educated and trained through wide exposure to the ideas and mores of students as diverse as this nation, Powers said. Our admissions policy embodies that vision. Lela Clark, director of admissions at UNC-Pembroke, said she doesnt see the case having a noticeable impact at UNC-P, which is ranked by U.S. News and World Report as the most ethnically diverse public university in the South. We havent recognized a particular affirmative action plan in admissions for the past 15 or 20 years, she said. Our diversity has continued to blossom by itself. Farmer said studying alongside students who come from every background is a critical part of a UNC education. Students from different backgrounds have more to teach each other, he said. I think students here tend to appreciate (the diversity). He said he has occasionally had to deal with concerns at UNC similar to Fishers, though the issue of race is not the only factor in admissions that causes complaints. When people dont get into the college of their choice, anyone who gets in can become a target of disappointment, he said. Charles Daye, a UNC law professor, said it remains to be seen what impact the case might have, both in North Carolina and nationwide. If they overrule Grutter, which is not a guarantee, many schools will be back at square one (with their admissions policies), he said. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, a liberal-leaning judge who would likely have supported UT-Austins admissions policies, recused herself from the case. She will not take part because she served as U.S. solicitor general when Texas lower courts heard the case in 2009. Eight justices will serve on the panel, and five affirmative votes are required to strike down the University of Texass use of race in admissions. The court is expected to hear the case this fall.

tas based on race. We do consider race in admissions as one form of diversity, and diversity is one factor among many, Farmer said. A negative decision (against UT-Austin) would require that UNC change something that it does. Fishers side is arguing that UT-Austin takes race-conscious admissions too far, particularly because the schools Top Ten Percent Plan already ensures campus diversity. The plan guarantees admission to any student in the top 10 percent of a state high schools graduating class.

Innovation seminar talks entrepreneurship

The seminar aimed to promote programs that focus on startups.
By Kevin Phinney
Staff Writer

In the last year alone, five new entrepreneurial programs have started at UNC. And a seminar Thursday aimed to promote entrepreneurship programs that help innovators. UNCs Carolina Innovations Seminar featured two keynote speakers: Patrick Vernon and Dr. Andrew DiMeo. Vernon teaches courses on new ventures and entrepreneurship at UNCs Kenan-Flagler Business School, and DiMeo is an assistant professor at the joint UNC-N.C. State University department of biomedical engineering. Vernon spoke on behalf of Launching the Venture, an entrepreneurship program created in 1999 at UNC. Launching the

Venture is a three-part series of courses that helps teams of students with ideas for startup businesses realize their goals. These teams are often paired with an MBA who assists and advises them throughout the course, he said. Members also have access to many professionals who are already established in the business world. Its a great place to learn the startup process, Vernon said. You can get in front of people who are otherwise very difficult to get in front of. Vernon also talked about Carolina KickStart, a UNC program that focuses on biomedical startup businesses. DiMeo represented MedtechID, which links biomedical engineering students with clinicians to identify problems in the health field. DiMeo said Medtech-ID is a multidisciplinary program at the graduate level that uses UNC and N.C. States resources to resolve these problems by creating new

technology. Kristen Hart, an MBA student at UNC, participated in the Medtech-ID program. Thanks to the program, she said she was able to sit in the operating room during a quadruple bypass heart surgery. Afterward, she sat down with the surgeon to discuss the entire surgery. It really gave me the opportunity to observe the problems and then come up with the solutions, Hart said. She said the biggest benefits of the program are the real-world experiences and the great networking opportunities. Timothy Martin, president of AugmentMedical, spoke about the ways that the entrepreneurial programs at UNC and N.C. State assisted him in starting his company. How do you build a company? he said. We didnt know. He said the advisors he was paired with eased the process. The connections that we had were the most valuable part of Launching the Venture, Martin said. His company is currently developing technology to help disabled hospital patients alert nurses. Thomas Pitler, president of a startup company called NeuroGate Therapeutics, said he was impressed with what he heard at the seminar. He said his goal was to get some information to help his company gain momentum. He said starting a business is difficult and that there are a number of resources everyone needs to be aware of if they are in the process of trying to start a business. UNC does an amazing job supporting startup companies, Pitler said. Contact the University Editor at

the bills chief sponsor. As part of the nations new health care law, employers would be required to offer free preventive care services in their insurance policies, including contraceptives. An exemption was made for churches and other religious organizations who object on moral grounds, and whose employees largely adhere to their beliefs. Facing blowback from soughtafter Catholic voters, the White House crafted a further compromise that tasked insurance companies with paying for the free care. The American Cancer Societys Cancer Action Network and others support the new rule as a way to ensure Americans have access to what they call lifesaving preventive health care. The foray into social issues has divided the GOP at a time when socially conservative presidential candidate Rick Santorum continues to challenge Mitt Romney. Many Republicans believe the party should remain focused on jobs and the economy, issues most pressing among voters. Democrats have capitalized on the debate by portraying the GOP as out of touch with most women and turning back the clock on womens health care. Earlier this week Romney stumbled on the issue, first appearing to oppose the GOP measure sponsored by Blunt before his campaign clarified that he had misunderstood the question. Im in favor of the Blunt amendment, he told CBS News while working the rope line and signing autographs with voters in Fargo, N.D.

Senate halts measure to reverse contraceptive rules

WASHINGTON, D.C. (MCT) A GOP-led attempt to roll back new rules requiring insurance companies to provide free contraceptive care was dismissed by the Senate a rejection of a Republican pivot toward conservative social issues and a victory for President Barack Obamas health care law. The 51-48 vote to table the Republican measure showed dissent among the GOP, as several Republican senators said the legislation was too broad for their support. Republicans say the new Obama administration policy is an affront to religious freedom, and an example of the administrations regulatory overreach. The U.S. Catholic bishops oppose the rule. The reason that this amendment is being debated right now is that the administration issued an order thats just unprecedented, said Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo.,

Summer School to up its course oerings

ndrea Iacobucci sews shorts at a craft shop in Carrboro. Iacobucci belongs to one of three groups that sell handmade and upcycled vintage clothing. Together the three groups form the Gypsy Witch Collective, which uses recycled materials to create something modern and features work from many local artists.

Due to rising student interest in receiving three credit hours in three weeks, the number of Maymester courses has been increased. Maymester runs from May 15 through June 1, and students take one three hour and 15 minute class five days a week. Maymester has expanded to 42 courses this year from 20 departments, said Jan Yopp, dean of summer school. In 2010, only 24 courses were offered in Maymester, and in 2011, 34 were offered, Yopp said. She added that this is the sixth year of Maymester, About 550 total summer courses will be offered, including first and second summer sessions, Yopp said. On Thursday, application decisions were mailed to non-UNC students who applied to attend summer school. For current students, registration for summer school starts March 22. Yopp said students like

Maymester because after June 1 theyre free to pursue work, internships, travel and study abroad for the remainder of the summer. Three out of four UNC students attend summer school before they graduate, she said. Most summer students take classes to get ahead in their course load or to fulfill their second major or minor, and to experience these classes at a different pace, she said. Only 10 percent of summer students attend for academic eligibility issues, Yopp said. Our real goal is to make campus a vibrant, exciting place in the summer. Yopp said Summer School has not been affected by the recent budget cuts because it is funded entirely through summer tuition, rather than state appropriations. The proposed tuition this summer is $210 per credit hour for in-state students and $530 for out-of-state students, she said. By comparison, N.C. State University charges about $215 for in-state students and $730 for out-of-state, and Duke University

charges about $930 per credit hour for all students, Yopp said. In another area of expansion, the first summer session will add to its Chinese and Spanish language immersion programs by introducing an Arabic option. Students can earn up to seven credit hours in the program depending on the language. Yopp said Summer School is also trying to add programs that are outside the classroom but still support classroom instruction. For the second year, the Carolina Summer Jazz Workshop will be offered to college students for credit, as well as high school students and adults in the community, said Stephen Anderson, director of the program. Professor Suzanne Gulledge, who teaches an education class during the first summer session, said the summer has a spirit of inquiry because students have more time. It feels less like were in competition with other constraints on students time, she said. Contact the University Editor at

Exploring the true, complex South

his time last year, a few of my best friends and I set off for a Deep South Road Trip with the idea that, in 10 days, we could pay some kind of homage to the mythologized landmarks we grew up hearing about. A compressed pilgrimage, if you will. We drove to New Orleans and arrived just as Mardi Gras hangovers were beginning to set in. Our cheapest lodging option, a PeptoBismol-pink motel named Mardi Gras RV Park and Motel, turned out to be as seedy as it sounded. After this, we proceeded to get wildly lost looking for William Faulkners home in Oxford, Miss. In Memphis, Tenn., we laid aside our vegetarian persuasions for barbecue, then cried in spite of ourselves at Graceland. On the way home, on a godforsaken stretch of highway, a car-full of UNC guys spotted our bumper sticker and asked us to dinner via the classic sign-in-the-window trick. You know who you are. In 2012, we take great pains to avoid making sweeping geographic generalizations unless, of course, were talking about the Southern leg of the United States. At UNC, introductions are often followed by a familiar disclaimer: Im from the South, but Im not Southern. The implication is that Southern culture shares a monolithic identity an identity to avoid. Its easy to spot the tensions that give Southerners a bad rap: immigration conflict, soaring obesity rates, pastors who burn the Quran, a recent election that reveals disturbing undertones about the status of womens rights in the region. When these are the token points of reference for Southern culture, the region can seem homogeneous and backwards. Given this perception, it isnt hard to understand why were hesitant to embrace Southern culture. But theres a lot more to the South than this, as my trip last spring affirmed. My friends and I came away with a deeper appreciation of just how complex the South is and how much there is of value here. Sure, on the road, we encountered greasy food and misogynistic billboards and signs advertising eternal damnation. But there was also gas station poetry, farm food and some of the most gracious, empowered women Ive ever met. Of course, there are many parts of the South that are systematically flawed in ways we dont often acknowledge. But in order to engage with the cultural landscape, its important to first experience it. That the Bible Belt is more than meets the eye is a song that has been sung countless times before, but it could be sung more. If theres one thing the South doesnt lack, its dimension. We just dont always embrace it. My Elvis keychain wasnt the only thing I took away from this small odyssey. I developed a stronger sense of place, and my motivation to invest myself in the South was renewed. I think this sense of place will prove vital to a new generation of Southerners as we navigate an uncertain future. I know that our road trip only scratched the surface of the rich and complicated experience the South has to offer. But at moments standing at the crest of the Mississippi River during sunset it took my breath away. I thought about the way my accent sometimes springs out in spite of me, the jazz singers in New Orleans, the billboards and strip malls and, finally, UNC. I felt glad to call this place home.


Discussion condemns college sports unfairly
TO THE EDITOR: On Tuesday in the Sonja Haynes Stone Center, the Friends of the Library sponsored a panel discussion titled Big-Time College Sports: What Needs to Change? During the introductions, the event was described as an opportunity to openly discuss the complex issues surrounding intercollegiate athletics. Indeed, the university should function as the primary forum to discuss societys complex issues. Unfortunately, however, the issues presented at this forum were not treated as complex but rather as clearly defined matters of right and wrong. A complex issue is by definition one that involves multiple, often competing, perspectives. Yet at this forum, the panel represented one perspective: Bigtime college sports are immoral. Even the one panelist who, reportedly, has argued elsewhere that college sports arent altogether bad never got around to explaining such. The panel unequivocally condemned Division I basketball and football, without any hint of dissent. So much for complex. Intercollegiate athletics is no doubt a complex issue that raises questions about the purpose of higher education in America. The fact is that the American university has always had a more comprehensive mission than academics alone. Yet this fact was never mentioned at the panel discussion. Future discussions of college sports should not be limited to those who have no direct experience with student athletes. Athletics administrators and others who work in intercollegiate athletics should be able to represent their perspectives. After all, to ignore some perspectives in favor of others would be to compromise the integrity of the university. Bradley Bethel Academic Support Program for Student Athletes

Waiting for real food at UNC

efore he decides whether to commit this university to a national sustainability initiative called the Real Food Challenge, Chancellor Holden Thorp has said he needs more information. We understand Thorps desire to make an informed decision, but we hope his request is not simply an attempt to stall. It is crucial


Signing on to the Real Food Challenge should not be delayed.

that UNC make progress toward improving its food policies, and signing on to the Real Food Challenge should be our first step. Every day spent gathering information is a day wasted. Once UNC signs on to the challenge, which we absolutely should, well have a long way to go before meeting its goal of having at least 20 percent real food by 2020. So just what qualifies as real food? The definition is complex and too often oversimplified, but its general parameters

are as follows: food that is ecologically sound, communitybased, humane or fair. Last fall, a group of students from the campus organization FLO (Fair, Local, Organic) Food spent an academic internship calculating the percentage of Carolina Dining Services food that qualifies as real. Thorp has asked that CDS run the numbers again. As students await these results and Thorps next move, we should work to educate ourselves about food at UNC. After all, you are what you eat.

Lines blurry in phone ban


While it sends a strong message of safety, the ban lacks feasibility.

ast week, in a 7-2 vote, the Town Council agreed to continue the discussion of a proposed cellphone ban for drivers within the town limits. Although some question the legality of such a proposal, citing the states right to maintain and set policy affecting state highways, the council should be applauded

for its attempt to stay at the forefront of safety innovation. But the proposed ban of hand-held and hands-free calls while driving is still rife with concerns and lacks feasibility. Though town attorney Ralph Karpinos asserts that the town could prove its jurisdictional authority, many Chapel Hill roads are state-owned. If we assume that the town has full jurisdiction, it must move forward weighing a constraint to drivers rights with public safety. The ban must only affect

hand-held phone usage and not prevent drivers from communicating safely via Bluetooth, or hands-free device. The towns proposal sends a strong message to the state about the direction our community feels safety policy should go. But the disagreement between the state and the town, which both claim full jurisdiction, must be settled with the goal of ensuring safer roads. Whoever claims full responsibility must make visibility and feasibility a priority.

Pride in ethical apparel


Bloombergs the right fit for UNC commencement

TO THE EDITOR: I feel Miss Donaghue is misguided in her belief that Bloomberg should not be allowed to speak at graduation. Michael Bloomberg is an incredible entrepreneur besides his actions as mayor. Many people in their lifetime do something controversial. Mr. Bloombergs views are not an attack on our community, rather him showing respect for Chapel Hill. As a senior, I want to have a legendary commencement speaker. UNC has never had a speaker with the credentials and myriad experiences of Mr. Bloomberg. He might be part of the 1 percent, but I know 99 percent of seniors want him to speak. Miss Donaghue, youre a sophomore, so dont speak for me and my colleagues. Scott Bissinger 12 Business administration

NC apparel in Student Stores doesnt have to come from sweatshops. Theres a better option turning to socially responsible garment production companies like Alta Gracia. They produce highquality college apparel students can be proud of wearing, and they adhere to the Workers Rights Consortiums code of conduct, which UNC signed in 2000. Alta Gracia was founded as an alternative to sweatshop production, and it pays its workers in the Dominican Republic a living wage. According to garment worker Yenny Perez, it makes the difference between heaven and earth. This salario digno enables workers to secure education for their families and has a positive economic effect on the surrounding community. In contrast, sweatshop factories under companies like Nike, Soffe and Columbia are frequently cited for horrendous working conditions including prolonged exposure to toxic fumes, extreme heat, verbal and physical abuse and abysmally low wages. In fact, the Workers Rights Consortium is looking into an ongoing case in Indonesia this month where Nike is implicated in the wage theft of more than $1.8 million from low-wage workers. These abuses blatantly violate our values as a university and the code of conduct to which we are legally bound. But UNC continues to source Nike apparel rather than tapping into the potential of ethically sourced and competitive

options like Alta Gracia. Ethically produced garments not only have a moral edge on companies like Nike, but have also proven to be competitive at hundreds of universities nationwide. Workers at the Alta Gracia factory make $3 an hour, while workers in an Indonesian Nike factory make $2 a day. Yet an Alta Gracia shirt in Student Stores costs $17 while a comparable Nike brand is $25. And while UNC continues to sell overpriced sweatshop apparel, Duke has managed to sell over half a million dollars worth of Alta Gracia in less than a year, and displays it prominently in its store. UCLA and NYU have both sold more than $200,000 worth of this ethical apparel, and Notre Dame sourced the shirt for this year, worn by all students at sporting events, through Alta Gracia. Student Stores has a phenomenal opportunity to uphold social justice by sourcing brands that respect the human rights of their employees, but has been resistant to this change.

While students have been persistent in meeting with Student Stores to improve our adherence to the code of conduct in each instance it has ignored them, denied them a meeting, or deferred the meeting until after large orders have taken place. Until now, it seems that business as usual has trumped upholding the values of our university, or responding to campus opinion. Hundreds of students and dozens of student organizations have signed onto a campaign encouraging Student Stores to source more socially responsible brands like Alta Gracia, and Student Stores should respond to these calls. Simply by sourcing better priced, ethically produced, highquality apparel, Student Stores has the opportunity to make significant strides in the pursuit of social and economic justice. A coalition of faculty declared in 2000 that because the WRC puts workers rights to a living wage and humane working conditions before corporate profits, it offers the University of North Carolina a chance to be part of a progressive struggle for social change. These are the values weve committed to, and its long past time for our university to meet them. We should be able to have the same pride in our university apparel as we do in the university it represents. By turning to socially responsible garment production companies to source UNC apparel, we have a chance to make that a reality.

Ben Keilman wanted to do something different after graduating from UNC last spring. Keilman, who graduated with a bachelors degree in political science and a minor in naval science, said he never saw himself pursuing a career as a politician. But he is running for the Republican nomination in District 118 of the N.C. House of Representatives. I really am a shy person, but the sheer importance of it forced me to run, he said. Keilmans campaign staff is mostly concentrated in Chapel Hill, though his district is located north of Asheville. Most of my committee started out in Chapel Hill, he said. My UNC network has been an excellent help.

Keilman said hes running to restore fiscal discipline in the states capital, calling himself a Raleigh outsider. The state legislature should only spend money on projects that create an obvious long-term benefit for the economy, he said. My real interest is in intelligent research and responsible governing, he said. Government is not doing what the people want. Keilman will face a stiff challenge in winning the Republican primary, with two experienced opponents also running for the right to battle five-time incumbent Rep. Ray Rapp, D-Haywood. Michele Presnell, a county commissioner in Yancey County and a candidate in the GOP primary, doesnt view Keilman as a significant factor in the race. The way I look at it is, I am running against Ray Rapp, she

said. I have no plans to do anything huge in the primary. Rapp, who is seeking his first term since Republicans drew new district lines as a part of the states redistricting process, said he will not be concerned with the Republican primary candidates until a challenger emerges. He said hes never heard of Keilman except through the grapevine, but his lack of experience might be an issue for his candidacy. Rapp is currently a minority whip for the Democrats. The experience is important, he said. Keilman said his time at UNC influenced his political views, citing classes involving modern political thought and terrorism. Ferrel Guillory, a UNC journalism professor and an expert on Southern politics, said the state needs more young people like

Keilman to step up and become leaders in government. So much of our politics have been dominated by the baby boomers, he said. I think it is important for the state that we nurture young leaders. Keilman said he sees the potential for a political youth movement to occur. The voice of our generation is growing.

The UNC mens team controls its own destiny against Duke moving into the ACC tournament.
By Megan Walsh
Senior Writer

With the end of the regular season staring the North Carolina basketball team down, head coach Roy Williams is comfortable staring right back. After an 88-64 victory against Maryland on Wednesday, UNCs rematch against Duke at Cameron Indoor on Saturday will determine the ACC regular season title before the postseason picks up Thursday with the ACC tournament. And at this point in the season, Williams is more than happy with the Tar Heels No. 6 position as they try to capture both upcoming ACC titles. Its all I ask for, Williams said Monday in his ACC teleconference. I dont know about everybody else, but I think you want to put yourself in position to win the conference championship the last week. And if you do that, youve also put yourself in position to be in the NCAA tournament. Youve also put yourself in position to get a

fairly good seed. Williams isnt getting ahead of himself, either. With UNCs potential this week, Williams believes his team controls its own destiny first with the regular season title, then in the conference tournament and eventually in March Madness. Before the Tar Heels worry about their date to the dance, though, a stop in Atlanta for the ACC tournament tops North Carolinas busy schedule. The tournament begins Thursday in Philips Arena for the bottom eight seeds, with the top four seeds beginning play on Friday. Depending on Saturdays outcome at Duke, North Carolina will clinch the first or second seed. Here we are the last week of the season with a chance, Williams said. Its not the greatest chance in the world, but with a chance to win the conference championship, which is where weve always wanted to be able to position ourselves. And both UNCs win against Maryland and its matchup against the Blue Devils this weekend are crucial to that chance in the tournament as well. Although the Tar Heels previously downed the Terrapins 83-74 in early February, Maryland worked senior big man Tyler Zeller into foul trouble early and played what John Henson afterward called one of the most physical games

of UNCs season. Few need a reminder of the buzzer-beating 3-pointer from Dukes Austin Rivers that handed the Tar Heels a second conference loss, 85-84. The game Saturday comes down to more than just revenge. We always talk about getting a championship and getting a ring, so thats something that were competing for and we know we got a chance this week to get one, Zeller said Tuesday. So weve put ourselves in a great situation, but weve just got to make the most of it this week. The weeks tough competition will also come in handy for what Zeller called the incredibly hard task of playing three games in three days when the tournament does roll around. No matter what, how North Carolina fares in its final minutes of ACC play will set the tone for whats to come in March especially in Atlanta, where UNC will take on its conference opponents all over again. If you take care of your business against teams in your league, Williams said, youll put yourself in a good position. Contact the Sports Editor at

(19-9, 10-4)

Florida State

All four of UNCs losses are to currently ranked teams, and the Tar Heels can clinch the ACC regular season title with a win against Duke on Saturday at Cameron Indoor Stadium. A win against the Blue Devils would be a nice lead-in to a postseason that the Tar Heels were picked by many to dominate at the beginning of the season.

Saturdays game with the Tar Heels will crown the ACC regular season champion, and the Blue Devils will be looking for a similar result as the contest in the Smith Center. Dukes production has been unpredictable recently, exemplified by Andre Dawkins 22-point explosion at Florida State followed by a goose egg against Virginia Tech last week.

The Seminoles are no longer in first place in the conference after falling to Duke and Miami last week, but for the first time in school history, Florida State beat N.C. State, Wake Forest, North Carolina and Duke all in the same season. The Seminoles will look to ride their ACC-leading 37.6 field-goal percentage defense through postseason play.

Coach Tony Bennett is certainly happy to see a healthy Mike Scott. But the rest of the conference? Not so much. After missing 21 games with an ankle injury last season, Scott has returned with a vengeance and put himself in contention for ACC Player of the Year. The Cavaliers as a whole have emerged as a top team with their shutdown defense.

(17-11, 8-7)
Its been an up-and-down season for new head coach Jim Larranaga. The ups: an upset overtime win against Duke in Durham and a victory against Florida State. The downs: two losses to North Carolina, a one-point loss to Virginia and, worst of all, Reggie Johnson being ruled ineligible. Fortunately, Johnson has been reinstated, giving the Hurricanes a better shot in the tournament.

(19-11, 8-7)
First-year head coach Mark Gottfried has revitalized the Wolfpack after five mediocre seasons under Sidney Lowe. But while N.C. State was able to chew through the ACCs gooey center, it couldnt quite compete with the conferences top dogs. The Wolfpack went winless against Duke, Virginia, Florida State and North Carolina.

(15-13, 7-7)
The Tigers record is deceptive. Clemsons schedule is filled with pretty underwhelming opponents and Arizona is the most impressive name in the list of non-conference foes that includes Gardner-Webb, Furman and Alabama State. Yes, Clemson beat Florida State, but it lost to the Gamecocks of South Carolina on the Tigers home court.

(16-13, 6-9)
Maryland sophomore Terrell Stoglin leads the ACC in scoring and has wowed fans with his acrobatic shots and raw athleticism. But Stoglin alone hasnt been enough to raise the Terrapins above fringe status in the ACC. First-year coach Mark Turgeon has already said that the team needs to win the ACC tournament to have a chance at the big dance, but thats a long shot.

After four straight years of being on the outside of the NCAA tournament and looking in, this year the Hokies wont have to wait for Selection Sunday to have their dreams crushed. Those hopes were out the window in January when Virginia Tech dropped six out of seven games, including losses to Wake Forest and Boston College.

Boston College

(13-16, 4-11)

(9-20, 4-11)
The Eagles are in secondto-last place in the conference and have only managed nine wins so far this season, but with a roster comprised of nine freshmen, thats not too surprising. Boston College did manage to knock off a ranked Florida State squad, but aside from that, the Eagles dont have too much to show for this season.

(10-19, 3-12)

Wake Forest

BArely A-WAke
The good news is that Wake Forest improved on last seasons dismal performance. The bad news is it wasnt by much. After finishing 1-15 in the conference last season, Wake Forest fared a little better in the ACC this year. But the Demon Deacons only picked up wins against the ACCs bottom feeders: Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and Boston College.

georgia Tech

Shooting guard Glen Rice Jr. nears the top in scoring, rebounding and unfortunately for the Yellow Jackets suspensions. Georgia Tech has suspended the junior twice for violating team rules, and the team itself has shown little bite under first-year head coach Brian Gregory. At one point, Georgia Tech lost six straight games in ACC play as it flirted with a last-place finish.

ACC Tournament Preview

The Daily Tar Heel


After falling to Clemson earlier in the season, UNC routed the Tigers in the ACC tournament.

Assistant Sports Editor


Roun-three drains 7 from deep

By Brooke Pryor
Staff Writer

GREENSBORO When North Carolina last played Clemson on Jan. 12, there was an overwhelming sense that the Tar Heels lost a game they shouldve won. They were playing at home, and the lineup finally returned some if its key pieces from injury. But the group failed to gel, putting up just 47 points against the last-place Tigers. A month and a half later, in the first round of the ACC tournament, scoring wasnt an issue for UNC. In fact, North Carolina nearly matched that 47-point output by halftime. Led by freshman guard Brittany Rountrees 21 points, fifth-seeded UNC (20-10, 9-7 ACC) handily defeated the 12th-seeded Tigers (6-22, 2-14 ACC) Thursday, 90-51 the largest margin of victory for UNC in tournament history. But while coach Sylvia Hatchell will gladly take the win, it wasnt about getting revenge. Clemson is really not that bad of a team because they played a lot of teams close, Hatchell said. I think it was more where we were trying to erase how we played against them. It wasnt really a revenge factor. Coming off back-to-back losses against Maryland and Duke, the Tar Heels were in dire need of a victory to remain in the NCAA tournament picture. And they accomplished the feat by showcasing some of their strongest shooting of the season. With 10 first-half points from Tierra Ruffin-Pratt and 12 from Rountree, the Tar Heels established a double-digit lead by halftime that only continued to grow. UNC shot 43.2 percent in the first half. In the second, the mark rose to 54.8. This mightve been one of our best games this season, Ruffin-Pratt said. We had a winning mentality. Coming off the Duke game, we played very well in the second half, so we just kept it going into the tournament. And we knew wed have to have a big tournament to show people how good we really are. The Tar Heels didnt give the Tigers much of a chance at another upset. They barely let them control the ball. While the Tigers actually shot a percentage point higher than UNC in the first half, they could only muster 18 shot attempts. UNC, on the other hand, had 37. And that difference came at the boards. I felt like we rebounded the ball extremely

dth file/eliza williams UNC freshman guard Brittany Rountree led all players in scoring Thursday with 21 points from seven 3-pointers. Rountree shot 70 percent from long range during her 22 minutes in the game.

well versus North Carolina the first time, Clemson coach Itoro Coleman said. Going into this game, I knew that was going to be important. If we gave up too many secondchance opportunities, then the game could get out of hand. And thats what happened. UNC finished with a 47-28 rebound advantage and scored 21 second-chance points, maximizing its possessions while simultaneously stymieing Clemsons offense. Unlike the January matchup with Clemson, UNC had the look of a team very much in sync. We were a much better team than them last time, and we got people out there now,

Hatchell said. Weve had time to work on things and play them together. After defeating the Tigers, the Tar Heels face fourth-seeded Georgia Tech today another team they lost to earlier in the season. But if todays game is any indication, UNC wont be playing for revenge. Its about respect, Hatchell said. Some of our players have been overlooked a little bit and wanted to show that were a much better team than what weve been given credit for. Contact the Sports Editor at

GREENSBORO Though listed as a freshman, Brittany Rountree took the hardwood like a veteran in fifth-seeded North Carolinas 90-51 win against 12th seeded Clemson in the first round of the ACC tournament. Rountree ignited the Tar Heels from behind the arc, making seven of 10 attempts and leading all scorers with 21 points. She got really hot. She got really hot on the outside, shooting 3s and we kept losing her in our zone, Clemson coach Itoro Coleman said. The seven triples tied the ACC tournament singlegame record for 3-pointers. But that wasnt the only record Rountree set, as she also exceeded her previous career high of five 3-pointers, matched Sunday in the loss to Duke. Her seven 3-pointers was a considerably better mark than the lone long-range bucket UNC made in the first meeting against Clemson. Ive just been in the gym working on my form, Rountree said. And when I get the ball, I shoot. Clemsons zone gave the guard a lot of open looks in the first half, and instead of passing up the opportunity, she made them pay. Rountree nailed four 3-pointers in the first half. Nothing garnered more cheers from the exuberant crowd of elementary school children filling the coliseum than Rountrees long-distance buckets. The shots not only brought momentum to the crowd, but propelled the Tar Heels to the teams largest ACC tournament thrashing. (A 3-pointer) brings momentum and gets me ready for the next shot, Rountree said. Since joining the Tar Heels, Rountree, who scored 14 second-half points in UNCs second matchup with Duke, has been steadily improving. But in the last two weeks, she has matured at an exponential rate. Brittany (Rountree) is a great shooter, UNC coach Sylvia Hatchell said. And she played well against Duke on Sunday and then of course she did again today as well. Hatchell said the game was about earning respect for some of the overlooked players, such as Rountree. But after turning in back-to-back high-octane and high-scoring games, shes difficult to ignore. Though Rountrees accolades include being ACC player of the week twice and a member of the ACC-All Freshman team, she hopes to add one more achievement to that list. I believe were ready to come out and compete because weve learned from our mistakes, Rountree said in a pregame interview. I think we can win the whole thing. Contact the Sports Editor at
