As Carol Folt arrived from the Ivy League, a cloud hung over UNC-Chapel Hill: The crisis that had enveloped academics and athletics for three years still carried unanswered questions – how did the bogus classes for athletes start, and why?
The N.C. Student Power Union said students and university workers will gather at the Belk Tower for a speakout and “possibly further action.”

The latest investigation into a long-running academic scandal laid bare the stresses of trying to compete in revenue-producing sports while maintaining the academic standards of the nation’s oldest public university, which has for decades taken pride in winning “the Carolina Way.”

In a session with several hundred faculty, staff and students in an auditorium at the UNC Genome Center, Chancellor Carol Folt and several other key administrators talked about reforms – those adopted since 2010, when the athletics scandal broke, and others to be developed.

Cynthia Reynolds, former chief counselor for football players, did not just decline to cooperate with the investigation. She threatened to call the police on investigators.
