Boxill a ‘peacemaker’
For more than half a decade I have volunteered with UNC’s Parr Center for Ethics. I know Jan Boxill to be an ethical person of the first order.
On July 21, The N&O condemned Boxill’s request that the name of a faculty member be replaced with a generic noun in a report regarding UNC’s academic-athletic scandal. The change proposed did not deny that there was a faculty member who was compromised. It did not conceal that the faculty member had maneuvered “the system.” It was a prayer to refuse to cast a stone, not a stonewalling of the investigation.
North Carolina can be thankful that its youth is guided by a peacemaker like Boxill.
