Honor Court Review Close to Conclusion

After more than a year in the making, the most comprehensive review of the student judicial system in three decades is moving closer to conclusion. On Friday, the Faculty Council approved a resolution adopting the Committee on Student Conduct's recommendations for amending the Instrument of Student Judicial Governance. The move comes after an entire semester of work by COSC, whose members investigated efficient and thorough means of reworking the campus's honor system.

UNC's Cleanup Efforts Could Total $350,000

The ice storm that hit Chapel Hill in December has left a nasty -- and costly -- path of destruction that many, including campus cleanup crews, will continue to deal with in the coming months. "There's quite a bit left," said Kirk Pelland, the University's grounds director. "We'll be working into February." Soon after the storm hit, workers made it a priority to make campus navigable by the time students returned, Pelland said. While he said the most difficult task has been accomplished, a return to normalcy, at least in terms of landscaping, is far from sight.

Task Force OKs $1,050 Tuition Hike

Completing a semester's worth of discussions and debate, UNC-Chapel Hill's Tuition Task Force in December recommended a three-year, $1,050 tuition increase to alleviate disparities in faculty, staff and teaching assistant salaries and to increase financial aid. It is unlikely, however, that the plan will come to fruition anytime soon. UNC-system Board of Governors members have said they expect the board Friday to pass a moratorium on campus-based tuition increases. If this happens, UNC-CH most likely will have to revisit the issue of tuition in a year.

Moeser: Salary Decision Was a Mistake

After weeks of defending a controversial pay agreement for outgoing Vice Chancellor and General Counsel Susan Ehringhaus, Chancellor James Moeser on Monday called his decision a mistake that cannot be renegotiated. "The arrangement in my view was an error in judgement on my part," Moeser said in a meeting with reporters. "I have to accept that responsibility." In October, Moeser and Ehringhaus agreed on a salary deal that will provide her with almost $320,000 for eight months of unrelated work in Washington, D.C., beginning Jan.

ACT Proposes Longer Hours In 2 Pay Lots

UNC's Advisory Committee on Transportation moved one step closer Wednesday to preparing a comprehensive long-term parking and transportation plan for the University.

Richter Elected as Congress Speaker

Congress members decided 21-8 Tuesday night that senior Carey Richter will replace outgoing Speaker of Congress Tony Larson for the remainder of the 84th session of Student Congress. Richter, who will serve as speaker until February's general student body elections, defeated District 19 representative and former Speaker Pro Tem Matt O'Brien. "This year, there's been something inside me that's said, 'This is what I can do to give back to the student body,'" she told Congress members before the vote.

Student Congress to Redraw Representative Districts

Student Congress unanimously approved Tuesday night a redistricting plan that dramatically overhauls how the UNC student body is represented. Congress' new plan consolidates the system of representation and creates one superdistrict for seats representing off-campus students, excluding those living in Granville Towers in or Greek houses. Students in Granville Towers still will have their own district, and Congress added a district for houses under the supervision of the Office of Greek Affairs. The overall number of seats in Congress will remain the same.

Trustees Defend Salary Decision

Through its chairman's admonishment of a recently skeptical public, the UNC Board of Trustees on Thursday staunchly defended Chancellor James Moeser's controversial salary agreement for an outgoing University administrator. Moeser has been the target of widespread criticism after it was reported that he guaranteed a two-year, $376,000 full salary for Vice Chancellor and General Counsel Susan Ehringhaus, who will leave her post in January for an eight-month work assignment in Washington, D.C. She will return to teach in the UNC School of Law next fall.
