Letter Published: April 25, 2013
UNC-CH Chancellor Holden Thorp stated that dealing with intercollegiate athletics is the most important part of the job (“Thorp: Give reins to athletic directors,” April 21). This is 100 percent wrong.
UNC’s mission is education and research, not sports and entertainment. If sports has become more important than academics, then it is time to completely redress the balance. UNC’s balance should be 0 percent sports, 100 percent education and research.
