From the Chancellor and her office
We are writing to share an update about a federal lawsuit filed against the University and UNC System that challenges our ability to admit and educate a diverse community of outstanding students.
At the start of this semester and new year, I see possibility and promise and am filled with the sense of the limitless potential that makes Carolina such a vital place. In that spirit, I would like to share two important announcements with you.
By now, I am sure you have seen that the UNC System Board of Governors turned back the plan presented by the Board of Trustees and me for the disposition of the Confederate Monument.
“Let empathy and compassion be your first and your second reaction.”
"Our unique legacy demands that we continue to reconcile our past with our present and future and be the diverse and just community that is fitting for America’s first public university."
"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."
