Current financial crisis and UNC affordablity

While I know that UNC has programs that attempt to help students afford college, with the current economic downturn,  the problem is going to become more wide spread.  In addition UNC is likely to find a further economic squeeze, from State budgets to reduced alumni contributions.

It is my belief that affordability should never limit a qualified student once accepted from attending that college.  I also do not like the idea that a student graduates with massive debt.

So my question is should UNC be planning any changes to assure affordability for any student to whom it sends an acceptance letter?  Should it change priorities, e.g. slow growth,funnel a larger share of  money from the state, contributions, endowments to ensure the affordability for all accepted students?
