Document Description

After the announcement that the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools would be reconsidering UNC's accreditation, many current students, prospective enrollees, and applicants began writing the administration with great concern. "I am very anxious to learn the results ... as are my parents," wrote Schwartz. Other letters indicated how the uncertainty about loss of accreditation would play a factor in decisions to apply or enroll.
