Anujor gift to international studies at Carolina will open ew opportunities for students and faculty to learn about global issues.
Alston Gardner ' 77 pledged the $10 million gift saying he
wanted to give Carolina students the same opportunity he had to
experience and learn first-hand about the world.
"This gift is designed to help UNC students shorten their
learning curve on international affairs so they can compete more
effectively in a global economy," Gardner said. "It also aiITls to
help the entire University conununity think critically about
pressing global issues that we face today."
The gift wilJ establish 25 undergraduate scholarships in the
ColJege of Arts and Sciences for students and faculty to travel to
Singapore for an am-mal six-week inU1"lersion program at the
National University of Singapore.
It also will provide for two research and teaching graduate fel-
lowships that wiIJ fund research and travel for students interested
in dissertation research on Asian topics and for a rotating Asian
field research seminar for faculty and undergraduate students to
conduct research in Asia.
Gardner also will fund the Global Scholars Program at the
Kenan-Flagler Business School, enabling foreign undergraduate
students to study at the business school.

Will Lose Parking
Building renovation and new construc- tion are playing havoc with the prac- tice of bringing cars to the campus,
and the University has decided to eliminate
parking for students who live in dorms.
One phasing option would eliminate park-
ing progressively by class year; for example,
sophomores could join freshmen on the list
of those not allowed residence parking next
fall, followed by juniors and seniors in the
following years, according to Carolyn Elfland
' 69, associate vice chancellor for campus
services. Alternatively, the new policy could
take effect at the same time for all students
living on campus. Some hardship spaces are
expected to be retained.
There is no plan to eliminate parking for
student commuters, although some will see
their spaces displaced temporarily during
The administration could find itself in hot
water with students. Few amenities of the
college life are as precious as that chunk of
asphalt, and the elimination of about 480
spaces already has drawn fighting words
from Daily Tar Heel columnists. Just after
Thanksgiving, student body President Justin
Young parked his car in front of Lenoir Hall
on a Wednesday afternoon, and 75 students
attended a subsequent protest meeting.
On-campus residence parking is one of
several parking luxuries the University no
longer can afford. The building boom ties to
the campus master plan for development will
mean temporarily reducing parking availabili-
ty for faculty, staff and students. New decks
will solve some problems, but those are not
expected to keep up with Carolina's growth.
At the peak of master plan construction,
UNC could be 2,600 spaces short. ·Parking
will get way worse before it gets back to
where it is now," Elfland said. Part of the Bell
Tower lot likely will be gone by spring, fol-
lowed by the Ramshead lot in May, she
The University is pursuing what Elfland
called "an aggressive park-and-ride strategy:
A new satellite lot is being built on Jones
Ferry Road in Carrboro, and other new lots
are planned in the N.C. 54 and U.S. 15-501
corridors. Parking officials also are looking
for land where park-and-ride lots could be
built, and they are trying to locate existing
private lots that are underused during the
week, such as church parking lots.
