Message from Chancellor Folt: A difficult but important topic

I am writing to share my thoughts about a difficult but important topic that has been on everyone’s minds this week: sexual assault and sexual violence. As chancellor, nothing matters more to me than the safety and well-being of our campus community and how our University responds to these issues and your concerns. In every situation, we must be fair and not rush to judgment. (

ACC Commissioner John Swofford on HB2: ‘It’s time for this bill to be repealed’

The NCAA announced Monday that it would be removing all championship events slated to be held in the state of North Carolina due to the controversial and discriminatory HB2 law. The ACC, to date, has not taken a stand on HB2, so it will be discussed this week. And then there is Swofford’s parting shot: “On a personal note, it’s time for this bill to be repealed as it’s counter to basic human rights.” (NBC Sports)

Chansky’s Notebook: A Failure To Communicate?

Wait a minute, who’s in charge at UNC? With one week to go before Carolina opens its football season against Georgia in Atlanta, the Tar Heels do not need the distraction that was apparently caused by deposed Illinois coach Tim Beckman joining Larry Fedora’s staff as a volunteer assistant. Beckman has left the post after his appointment triggered a rash of objections and criticism. (

UNC-Chapel Hill issues statements on Tim Beckman

Statement from Chancellor Carol L. Folt: “When I first learned yesterday that Coach Larry Fedora had invited former Illinois head coach Tim Beckman to serve as a volunteer with the football program, I was surprised and disappointed. The decision for Mr. Beckman to withdraw from his volunteer position was the right thing to do, and moving forward I don’t expect this situation to recur." (

Chansky’s Notebook: Amazing Support for Carolina

In the wake of the NCAA investigation into UNC academics coming to an end, alumni and friends of the university have set new records for giving money to their school. Those two things might be unrelated, but I don’t think so. At a time when support for UNC was necessary, individual, corporate and foundational donors stepped up big time on both sides of the plate.

Q&A with sports law professor Tim Davis on UNC's Amended NOA

What (UNC is) asserting is that in both the instance of the failure to monitor as well as the lack of institutional control, there’s no underlying violation committed by UNC for the most part.

Chansky’s Notebook: No Food Projectiles, Please

Now that North Carolina has responded to the amended Notice of Allegations and Lew Margolis has told us that the Tar Heels should forfeit every victory back to the Choo Choo Justice era, Bubba’s staff has been working on some more really important stuff this summer hoping to increase attendance or concession revenue. Not sure which. (
