    North Carolina avoided major sanctions after the NCAA could not conclude the school violated academic rules when it made available deficient Department of African and Afro-American Studies "paper courses" to the general student body, including student-athletes.

    The University of North Carolina, Charlotte, offers a staggering 345 courses on the topic of diversity and social justice. The University of North Carolina, Charlotte released a list of their “Diversity Courses” that spans 21 pages and covers academic disciplines such as Religious Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, Languages and Culture Studies, and Africana Studies. Although it’s unclear why UNC Charlotte needs so many “Diversity Courses,” Associate Dean Shawn Long says that the topics discussed in such courses are beneficial to all of the members of the school’s community. “When we consider the concept of diversity, broadly speaking, we mean...

    Never in history has there been an NCAA investigation like the one that is (still) ongoing at the University of North Carolina. Now, six years after the initial investigation began, it appears that the school will finally have its day in NCAA Court on August 14th. The outcome will almost certainly have a huge impact on UNC and on college athletics – one way or the other. The basic premise of the investigation is this: During a period that might have been as long as 18 years (!!) dating from 1993, numerous Carolina athletes were involved in sham classes in...

    Dear UNC President Spellings:For years, my opposition to UNC diversity initiatives has been a source of controversy across our seventeen-campus system. Many have assumed that my opposition has been a function of personal prejudice or insensitivity to the needs of various “disenfranchised” groups. In reality, it is a function of my belief that people should be judged according to individual character traits, not group stereotypes. However, despite years of opposition to UNC’s victim centered diversity movement, it appears that my side has lost. Accordingly, I write to you today with an offer to join the war against white privilege and...
  • UNC's women's and gender studies department waves in 40-year anniversary

    Male professors teaching male students from textbooks written by men — this is largely what UNC looked like for over 150 years, before the establishment of what is now the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies. This year marks the department’s 40th anniversary. Silvia Tomášková, the department chairperson, said when the program began in 1977, it yielded immediate results. “That very first year they had 50 undergraduates, so that was rather impressive considering this was the 1970s," Tomášková said. "Even today, 50 would be seen as an impressive class size.”

    Our core mission here at Heat Street is to protect and defend free speech from social justice warriors who want to silence it. So I’m particularly proud to be able to report that, after a series of stories and FOIA requests by Heat Street political editor Jillian Melchior, the University of Northern Colorado has closed its ‘Bias Response Team’—for good. University President Kay Norton, in her ‘State of the Union’ college address, announced she was throwing in the towel: “We will no longer have a separate process for bias-related concerns,” Norton said in her prepared remarks.Jillian’s reports on the free-speech...
  • LGBT activists lose it over North Carolina university rule forcing men to use male bathrooms

    A common sense bathroom guideline that men use men’s restrooms and women use women's restrooms has LGBT activists up in arms. The University of North Carolina (UNC) announced last week that it would comply with state law which requires students to use the correct biological bathroom, rather than choosing which bathroom best suits them, according to a report by the Daily Caller. UNC President Margaret Spellings confirmed in a memo to the university that the law would be followed on the college campus. This is what has caused backlash from the LGBT group, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). The organization...

    A “cultural competency workshop” at the taxpayer-funded University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is assigning scores to students based on how much “white privilege” they allegedly have. The “cultural competency” workshop, which appears to be mandatory for certain students, requires participants to “examine white privilege and how it is more powerful than other types of benefits afforded by society” by completing surveys, reports Campus Reform. “I can choose blemish cover or bandages in ‘flesh’ color and have them more or less match the color of my skin,” one statement on the surveys says.

    Some readers may have noticed that six months have passed since I wrote a column criticizing the whacky leftist administration at my university, UNC-Wilmington. I am happy to report the reason for the silence is that the wacky leftist administrators are now gone. In addition to that, on July 1st of this year our university got its first out of the closet conservative chancellor. You heard that right. UNC-Wilmington is now under the leadership of a conservative chancellor. And he makes no effort to hide it. Jose "Zito" Sartarelli is just the man we have been looking for. Unlike me,...

    CHAPEL HILL (WTVD) - A UNC town hall meeting on race relations on college campuses was disrupted Thursday evening by a group of students who took over the event and read off a lengthy list of 50 demands. The list of demands titled "A collective Response to Anti-blackness" labels UNC Chapel Hill as an "unethical institution" which exploits labor, runs an "athletic industrial complex", and treats people of color as "less than essential to the everyday running of UNC." The demands rang from the removal of the new system president, mandatory training for students and staff on the "historical racial...

But when it came to his university application he faced a serious disappointment for the first time in his glittering career. He was rejected by six of the seven Ivy League colleges to which he applied. “I saw people less qualified than me get better offers,”...

    Earlier this month Townhall reported that on a number of colleges campuses throughout the U.S., hundreds of freshmen are taking a course about 9/11—one that happens to be taught from the perspective of the terrorists. “The Literature of 9/11,” which teaches students that that the US was to blame for the attacks and the jihadists who killed nearly 3,000 people that day were in fact freedom fighters, has students reading books like “Poems from Guantanamo: Detainees Speak.” Thanks to uproar from the College Republicans at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, which is among the schools where the course is being taught,...

    CHAPEL HILL, NC (WTVD) -- Police are investigating after someone spray-painted the words "murderer" and "black lives matter" on the "Silent Sam" Confederate memorial on the campus of UNC Chapel Hill. The statue of a Confederate Army soldier was erected on campus in 1913 as a memorial to the more than 300 UNC students who died in the Civil War. The overnight vandalism came as no surprise to the local chapter of the Sons of the Confederacy. One of its members told Eyewitness News he was actually keeping watch over the statue until about 11:00 p.m. Saturday night, expecting someone...

    The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill has just made an enormous political mistake. Just days after being put on accreditation probation in the wake of a massive academic fraud scandal, they decided to fire wrestling coach C.D. Mock. His firing comes under suspicious circumstances and has serious First Amendment implications. The university is claiming that C.D. Mock was fired because of his teamÂ’s performance. It is true that his team has not finished higher than fourth at the ACC Championships since 2008. But there is more to the story. Coach Mock is not your ordinary wrestling coach. He is also...
