CHAPEL HILL — A University of North Carolina panel has revised a policy that allows school administrators to collect leave pay even if they don’t return to teaching positions at the school as planned.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Friday that the panel approved a plan to stop chancellors and presidents of universities from taking paid leave without returning to the school.

The newspaper reported a provost at North Carolina Central University was paid $104,000 for six months’ leave and then retired. A provost at Fayetteville State University got $72,500 in leave pay before being fired and one at UNC-Asheville got $59,000 before accepting a position at another school.

Leave pay has cost the universities $8 million in the past five years.

UNCW film students were able to rub elbows with filmmakers Thursday night as part of the Cucalorus Festival. The Cornish Pepper Shorts debuted Thursday night. It featured multiple films created by a handful of UNCW students.

More than 100 passes were given to the film study majors to attend. It was a chance to get a taste of the real world.

Matt Delman, “Titan” co-creator said, “You can’t get it in a classroom, you can’t get it from a text book, it really just comes from meeting other filmmakers and being a part of the festival.”

“It’s just been great interacting with other filmmakers, talking, making friends, makes all this worth the time, the energy, the money,” added “Titan” co-creator, Jayson Barber.

The students also volunteered at the festival by helping usher and taking tickets at the Lumina Theatre.
