The serial dishonesty displayed by the UNC-Chapel Hill chancellor and his associates regarding the most sensitive and important matters confronting the University in recent years has eroded our confidence in UNC's leadership. The members of the UNC-Chapel Hill Chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) urge Chancellor Guskiewicz, and others who have contributed to UNC’s pattern of institutional dishonesty, to step down.
