Cary, N.C., June 7, 2000 ? University of North Carolina President Molly Broad announced that the 16-campus university system has received a $3 million, five-year grant from SAS Institute that will give students, faculty and administrators use of SAS software and services. SAS, based in Cary, is a global leader in e-intelligence software and services.

The grant, covering software licensed from June 1, 2000, is broken into four major areas: software licenses, SAS inSchool (an emerging line of software designed for schools), decision-support tools and SAS certification.

"Immediately, we?ll begin to implement the software and services to help strengthen the system?s information technology," said Diana Oblinger, UNC?s CIO and vice president for information resources. "The amount of energy and enthusiasm displayed every time our planning teams have met indicates that there is a great deal of synergy between UNC and SAS Institute. As our campuses have the opportunity to participate in the projects associated with this grant I think they will find that SAS has a lot to offer. This goes well beyond statistical analysis and computer science."
