Trust us. We run a university. We know what we're doing.

Julius Nyang'oro chaired the Department of African and Afro-American Studies at UNC for twenty years, offering fake classes to over 3,000 students.  The ordinary term for a department chair at UNC is five years.  How did Nyang'oro manage to serve for twenty?  Because he was never reviewed.  Administrators just rubber-stamped his renewal every five years.  Why wasn't he reviewed?  "They thought that would be awkward."

No need to worry now, though.  The UNC chancellor, Carol Folt, says that UNC administrators have "already gone deeply into transforming our culture and our policies from the top down and bottom up." Plus, basketball season starts next Friday. Go Heels.
