From the Chancellor and her office
Chancellor Folt announces that Dawn Osborne-Adams has been selected as the new University ombuds and director of the University Ombuds Office.
Chancellor Folt shares the sad news from the UNC System that UNC President Emeritus C.D. Spangler Jr., a Carolina alumnus and devoted champion of affordable access to public higher education in North Carolina, has died.
Chancellor Carol Folt and Vice Chancellor Felicia Washington write to the campus community on the conclusion of the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights' investigation of Carolina's Title IX program.
"I’m hoping you’ll champion a cause, turn out the vote, participate in student government and express the concerns of your generation. If you don’t, who will? We know from experience, that you’ll launch startups and social ventures, you’ll excel in and out of the classroom and you’ll continue the Tar Heel tradition of community service."
"Dr. Seuss said, “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” Your shared moments and memories will bind you even when thousands of miles draw you apart. From your first sip at the Old Well to the moment when you toss your hats to the Carolina Blue sky – your ties to each other and this place we love will continue to grow."
"This ceremony signifies another step forward for each of you… on your own path to achieve your personal mission… And you never know what can be accomplished with courage, conviction, commitment and – as Stephen Hawking demonstrated – a little bit of humor. Now, everyone please stand for our alma mater."
"We know that to advance we have to be working towards something that matters, something that we stand for, and Dr. King’s beloved community is worth all that we can give to that end."
