The GAA-sponsored Tar Heel Network supports the University’s goals and priorities through advocacy with legislators. Since its inception in 1983, the Tar Heel Network has been actively involved in the passage of a capital bond initiative and the protection and preservation of the University’s overhead receipts. It also has helped deflect the passage of punitive budget proposals and has advocated with state legislators for appropriations that would permit UNC to become competitive in faculty salaries with California, Michigan, Virginia and UCLA.
