Carol Folt takes deep dive into Galápagos research

On her recent trip to Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands, Chancellor Carol Folt dived (literally) into the research UNC faculty and staff and their collaborators at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito are conducting.

Why UNC will pay more for campus athletics upgrade

A $55 million plan to replace UNC’s soccer/lacrosse stadium and build the football team a bigger practice complex has seen its price tag rise more than 22 percent, because of design changes and a hotter-than-it-has-been construction market. The bill for Fetzer Field’s successor and the football team’s new indoor/outdoor practice fields is now expected to approach $67.4 million. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Paul Hardin leaves behind legacy of integrity

Love, honor and integrity were common themes in the service and in the life of a man who navigated an athletic scandal before ever coming to UNC, who played in the 1962 British Open for fun, who fought against segregation in both academic and religious realms, who sent flags to half-mast at both Duke University and UNC with the news of his death.

UNC Athletics: Catching up with Corey Holliday

I recently got the chance to sit down with former UNC wideout and current Associate Athletic Director Corey Holliday. By the time he graduated in 1993, Holliday held the the school record for career receptions. He played in 47 games in his career and caught a pass in every one. Holliday went on to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers and now supervises UNC's football operations. (Tar Heel Blog)

(Durham Herald-Sun)

Making an impact as a global university

Paul Hardin — a good man who made UNC better

When Paul Hardin slipped away last week, North Carolina lost a brilliant and fine man, a UNC chancellor whose leadership was endearing, its lessons enduring. “This may be audacious, but here’s an idea,” I heard him say so often as a way to prepare us to hear how he might see the future differently. It was the good fortune of us all to learn from him. (Raleigh News & Observer)

UNC introduces free streaming as the best gift for Carolina fans around the world

This sort of thing is a bigger deal at a place like UNC than it would be at other schools. UNC has a ton of alumni and fans living outside of the range of the THSN. I know I wasn’t alone in muting Billy Packer and Dick Vitale in favor of Woody and Mick, but since I moved away from North Carolina in 2003, I haven't been able to listen to a game on the radio.

With UNC and Louisville, the NCAA's power is called into question

In the coming months, the NCAA will attempt to reiterate -- and perhaps redefine -- its role as the punitive arm of collegiate athletics. High-profile cases involving UNC and Louisville, both of which have been appealed, could act as deterrents for future rule-breakers or demonstrate the NCAA's limited power and reduced position in the era of the Power Five.
