RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – The chancellor of the College of North Carolina’s flagship campus says a ban on courtroom work for a middle that represents the poor and disenfranchised places the varsity’s “arduous-earned fame in danger” if it leads the closure of the middle.
Chapel Hill campus Chancellor Carol Folt writes in a letter that a litigation ban would change the best way the UNC Middle for Civil Rights operates. Folt writes that the ban possible would deter donations to the middle, which receives no state funds.
Middle supporters say the ban is predicated in ideology. Ban supporters say the courtroom work strays from the college’s schooling mission.
A committee meets Tuesday to think about the ban, which must be authorised by the UNC Board of Governors.
