CHAPEL HILL, NC – UNC System Interim President Bill Roper has released the following video addressing the System’s response to the coronavirus: “Hello, everyone. I’m Bill Roper, Interim President of the UNC System. I’d like to take a moment to address a concern that is on everyone’s mind: COVID-19, the novel coronavirus.

As a physician, educator, parent, and former director of the CDC, I understand why the University community is anxious at this time.

Concern is warranted, panic is not.

Everyone should be vigilant and adopt tried and true practices for maintaining good health. Doing so will help minimize the impact of this virus.

Avoiding overreaction is also critical to our shared effort. The UNC System is consulting with public health officials to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation and prepare for the likelihood that the virus will impact our institutions.

I have been working closely with a small coordinating group of university administrators and public health experts to help craft an informed approach.

Those who are most at risk of suffering serious health consequences from the virus are older adults and those with serious pre-existing respiratory problems.

Our universities remains open and will continue to deliver high-quality instruction for our students. At the same time, we are working to maximize our flexibility in how we deliver education and limit the potential impact of coronavirus at our institutions. At each UNC System institution, we are transitioning whenever possible from in-person teaching to alternative, online instruction.

UNC System institutions are thriving and supportive communities, ready to adapt quickly as circumstances evolve.

We remain focused on the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, and the delivery of our core academic mission.”

 N.C. A&T Announces New Athletics Affiliation: Big South Conference

How many members of  NC A&T Board of Trustees does it take to change a light bulb?

NC A&T official website says "N.C. A&T Announces New Athletics Affiliation: Big South Conference". Stating   N.C. A&T Board of Trustees voted to switch athletic conferences from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) to the Big South on Friday morning (02/06/20), just prior to the press conference, acting on a study and recommendation from its Athletic Conference Assessment Committee.

The committee completed its study and approved the recommendation on Tuesday.  “As our committee did its due diligence over the past year, the opportunities to positively impact the lives of our student athletes and the financial health of athletics became increasingly clear and detailed,” said A&T trustee and ACAC Committee Chair Timothy King. “In the end, we had compelling answers to all our questions, making our choice straightforward.” *

NC A&T document [ Meetings and Communications] distributed at the University  July 2019 Retreat does not indicated NC A&T Board of Trustees created an Athletic Conference Assessment Committee (ACAC).  Furthermore I did not located references to meetings of the ACAC in BOT Agenda items and minutes for NCA&T Board of  Trustees this pass year or any other year.  Athletics at the Board of  Trustees (BOT) level report to University Affairs Committee (UAC).

NC A&T Athletic Director Earl Hilton presented on February 22, 2019 (the second Regular Schedule NC A&T Board of Trustees Meeting) Institutional Oversight of Intercollegiate Athletics Report to the Board of Trustees University Affairs Committee whose graphics, charts, text and presentation did not indicate the existence of  an alleged ACAC.

If an ACAC existed NC Open Meeting Laws may have required Public Notice of alleged ACAC Tuesday meeting:
