More puppies for the mill? This alert via anonymous email.
Art Pope is putting together a Constitutional Law Center at NC Central University's Law School. It is his existing NC Institute of Constitutional Law, but is being put at the law school and will focus on 1868 Constitution and Reconstruction/civil rights and other history issues. It will work with the history and business departments thus giving Pope even broader influence at NCCU. Bob Orr will be director.
The faculty's curriculum committee met this week. Full faculty vote is next week. The idea was to do this at Carolina but they didn't want the entanglement. Neither did Campbell. Central is so strapped for cash given the budget that it will do it. Faculty has to approve it. Some faculty don't like the arrangement but most seem willing to go with it. Once they do, administration officials will have to approve it which won't be a problem. Then it goes to the Board of Governors for the system. It has all happened VERY quickly and quietly. some body needs to make this public.
Ah yes, the Puppymaster never fails. Find the poorest and most oppressed among us and exploit them for personal gain. To my knowledge, UNC at Chapel Hill told Pope to go (expletive deleted) himself. So did Campbell? Now he's offering this historically black institution an offer they can't refuse.
Will the NCCU faculty agree to become part of Pope's Plantation? Will the Student Store be taken over by Maxway? We'll soon find out.
