Message from Chancellor Carol L. Folt on outside speaker decision

Dear Campus Community: Because of serious concerns about campus safety, I have declined a request from the National Policy Institute to rent space for Richard Spencer to speak on campus.

Statement from Board of Trustees on Silent Sam Confederate Monument

We are writing to address misinformation about the state law governing the Confederate Monument, commonly referred to as Silent Sam, and to express our support for the ways the Chancellor and the University have been handling this complex matter.

The NCAA vs. North Carolina heads to a familiar phase -- waiting

UNC wrapped up its two-day hearing in front of the NCAA Committee on Infractions on Thursday, and now the university gets to wait on the outcome. That does not necessarily mean a resolution is in sight. It could be months before the committee announces a decision on possible punishment related to its investigation into the African and Afro-American Studies Department. (ESPN.com)

UNC-NCAA COI Hearing Concludes

The University of North Carolina’s hearing before a panel of the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions wrapped up shortly after 1 p.m. Central time in Nashville, Tenn. on Thursday. All that’s left to do is wait for the infractions report, which is typically delivered within 8-12 weeks, according to NCAA guidelines. School officials were unable to provide an update following the hearing. (Inside Carolina)

The UNC Scandal: Will The Penalties Live Up To The Hype?

The limited evidence currently available for public viewing appears to support an allegation that athletics department staff had unusual levels of involvement in the AFRI/AFAM courses taken by student-athletes, but I have some doubts about the egregiousness of that involvement, so my prediction is that the COI penalties will fall far short of what many are anticipating.

UNC representatives — including chancellor Carol Folt, athletic director Bubba Cunningham and men’s basketball coach Roy Williams — spent nearly all day in a closed-door hearing to start a two-day session in Nashville, Tennessee, before wrapping up in the evening.

Former UNC student on academic scandal: 'Nothing fake about the work I did'

The next time you think about UNC’s AFAM scandal, you must also see my face, the face of a 54-year-old working full-time and studying full-time on a quest of to fulfill a life-long dream of a college degree from UNC. In fact, if you take the time to listen to something other than media sound bites, you may discover this “shadow curriculum” was not created simply to keep athletes eligible. (Sporting News)

UNC academic case finally reaches NCAA infractions hearing

It has taken more than two years for UNC to appear before an NCAA infractions committee panel since initially being charged with five top-level violations amid its long-running academic scandal. The two-day hearing begins Wednesday in Nashville, Tennessee. The panel will determine whether the school faces penalties that could include fines, probation or vacated wins. (Associated Press)

What to expect as UNC meets with NCAA infractions committee

The NCAA would like to harshly punish UNC for infractions it has no authority over. No bylaws were in place that pertain to academic fraud during the decades the university has admitted to wrongdoing. Semantics be damned. Ultimately the infractions committee would like a resolution that sends a message to the rest of its members while reminding everyone who is boss. (WTVD)

Message from Chancellor Carol L. Folt on recent events

Sadly, the tragic and deplorable events at the University of Virginia and in Charlottesville over the weekend have taken precedence not only here at Carolina, but at colleges and universities across the nation. The scenes of violence, torch- and gun-bearing protestors, and people wearing KKK and Nazi symbols and shouting hateful slogans were terrifying and have no place on our campuses or in our society. (UNC.edu)

UNC Set to Appear Before NCAA Committee on Infractions
