A source close to the University of North Carolina system indicates that some members of the Board of Governors are working to remove Holden Thorp as chancellor of the Chapel Hill campus. The members intend to make a formal motion at the Board’s next gathering if UNC President Tom Ross fails to dismiss Thorp by the September meeting.
When asked why, the source simply said, “The university is the laughing-stock of the nation and the damage is spreading to the entire system. The only solution is transparency and a leadership change.”
Honest NC will provide further details as they become available.
