UNC and State Politics: Then and Now – A Dialogues Seminar
February 17, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Contentious issues have long forced the University of North Carolina to navigate between the state’s political leaders and the diverse ideas and actions of its students and faculty. Are recent controversies such as the debates over HB2, Confederate monuments or public funding a continuation of traditional tensions or a new more politicized stage in the University’s interactions with state authorities? This Dialogues seminar will explore this question with examples from the University’s history and evolving position within North Carolina’s political culture.
