teaching at the University of Wisconsin for
the summer, Protzman realized he wanted
to marry her.
"I finally decided Jane was the love of
my life and to stop messing around,"
Protzman said. "She's this remarkable
woman. Once I got beyond being her
student, that's when I fell in love. 1just had
to suffer a little while.. .. Then 1 decided I
had suffered enough."
He called her in Wisconsin and essentially
proposed to her on the phone. They became
engaged when she rerurned to Chapel Hill in
August 1987, and they married in December.
"And we've been flying high ever since,"
Protzman said. "We're living life full out."
As Protzman represents the interests of the
town and Brown represents the University's
interests, they look for situations that will
benefit both parties. At the same time, they
are trying to avoid any conflicts ofinterest.
For instance, they plan to stay out of the
fray on the debate about zoning and devel-
opment of UNC's Horace Williams tract.
"I've literally been accused of being in
bed with the University," Protzman said.
"Neither of us is blindly conunitted to the
institutions we're in, but we have to repre-
sent our interests.

decade, especially under the leadership of
Brown's predecessors, microbiology professor
Harry Gooder and anthropology professor
Jim Peacock. Having served on the Faculty
Council for five years, including two years
on the council's executive committee, and
on several University and chancellor's com-
mittees, Brown was a "logical and good
choice" to lead the faculty, Peacock said.
At her first Faculty Council meeting as
chair in September, Brown set the tone for
how she wanted to Jead the 2,OOO-member
faculty with one simple statement: "None
of us is as smart as all of us."
She encouraged members to talk to the
professors they were elected to represent,
speak out at the monthly council meetings
and get to know other council members.
Brown stresses what she calls the "four
Cs": communication, community, coordi-
nation and cooperation. "] want as many
people to talk as possible," she said. " 1
want to get through the agenda. 1 want to
make sure people know what we're talking
about and not be in the dark. 1 want people
to talk freely.... The neat part of the trick
is to have a full discussion and then stop it
