FROM THE HILL
Under Review F ourteen football players have missed games while the University and the NCAA investigate two separate aspects of the program. By Nov. 1, eight had been punished, three with dismissals, three with a season’s uspension and two with partial- season suspensions. An assistant coach resigned under a cloud.

Carolina’s research grants and contracts totaled $803 million in fiscal 2010, the largest amount
in campus history.
The figure is a 12. 2 percent increase
from last year’s $716 million. The contracts
and grants come primarily from the federal
government, especially the National Institutes of Health – traditionally the University’s largest source of research funding –
and the National Science Foundation.
Of the total, $126 million came from
the American Recovery and Reinvestment
Act, also known as the stimulus bill. A total
of 308 UNC projects received stimulus
funding for the year.
Results from top-performing units in
fiscal 2010 included the College of Arts and
Sciences (up 48.3 percent to $88 million)
and the School of Medicine (up 21.3 per-
cent to $424.3 million). Among depart-
ments and centers and institutes, Lineberger
Comprehensive Cancer Center ($60.6 mil-
lion) and the Carolina Population Center
($47.7 million) had the highest research
“Given the current economic climate,
it’s impressive that we’ve continued to keep
growing the pool of research funding here
at UNC,” said Barbara Entwisle, interim
vice chancellor for research and economic
development. She noted that fiscal year
totals have maintained an upward trend
since 1996, when the annual tally amounted
to slightly less than $249 million.
In many cases, researchers from schools,
departments and units collaborate on
research grants, contracts and studies. That
reflects UNC’s emphasis on interdisciplinary teaching and scholarship involving
health, natural and social sciences as well as
liberal arts and the humanities.
