WRAL Editorial: UNC Board – Act like you run a $3.2 billion business, not a lemonade stand
It reads, in part:
The obsessive micromanagement of the campuses leaves the system leaderless. Individual institutions are in constant confusion. Unless this ends, the system is in jeopardy of being unable to attract the best administrators, brightest researchers and most inspiring teachers while serving our state’s aspiring young minds. It all diminishes UNC’s reputation.
This is another sign of the momentum building to reform the current governance system.
Washington Post article highlights our efforts
A story by Susan Svrluga in the Washington Post (In wake of Silent Sam, former school leaders call for an end to politics on UNC board) highlights our efforts to reform the way our state’s universities are governed:
More than 1,100 people, including former top school officials and prominent donors, are calling on leaders of North Carolina’s public universities to stop “meddling and micromanaging” amid a tumultuous, politically charged time in the state.
That call, contained in a petition, was an unusually candid and critical public statement launched by people who have made supporting higher education in the state a personal priority, warning that the universities’ reputations and integrity were endangered.
