Jane Stancill opens her story in today’s News & Observer about Jay Smith’s Wall Street Journal op-ed by specifically calling attention to the problems with UNC’s grievance system, in ways that recall some of the frustrations that have been expressed about this issue at Appalachian. She writes:
“UNC-Chapel Hill Chancellor Carol Folt and the Board of Trustees have rejected a faculty grievance committee’s report concluding that senior administrators pressured the history department over the scheduling of a class that delved into UNC’s athletics scandal.
“Provost Bob Blouin and Folt rejected the faculty committee’s recommendations, and the trustees upheld Folt’s decision on March 29, according to documents obtained by The News & Observer.”
