Document Description

Following the amendment that came out of the Britt Commission, the Board of Trustees almost immediately adopted a policy to restore their power to accept or deny campus speakers. In so doing, the threat of loss of accreditation was effectively lifted. This report affirmed "that the affected state institutions of higher learning in North Carolina continue to be accredited by and hold membership in the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Inc."
