UNC-Chapel Hill reviews fee that funded "sexperts"

Posted: Updated:

Trustees at North Carolina's flagship university are reviewing the health fee that thousands of students pay after state college leaders questioned spending for sex counseling and stage performances addressing sexual topics and social advocacy.

School officials agreed this spring to cut $20 from the $436 health fee charged to nearly 30,000 students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The cut starting in August comes after members of the state university system's governing board questioned why the health fee was used for sexual advice "sexperts" and employees working on "diversity initiatives."

UNC-Chapel Hill vice chancellor for student affairs Winston Crisp disputes questions about whether health funds were misused. He says while some of the spending was "absolutely inappropriate," campus staffers were trying to reach college-age sensibilities.
