Marcus Henry: Athletics do not enhance education, either

Chairmain John Fennebresque said in his Feb. 27 statement on why the UNC Board of Governors chose to shut down the UNC Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity: “We also felt the center did not enhance the educational mission of the university, did not work across disciplines to effect change and did not have the financial support to sustain it.”

The athletic departments at the UNC schools have done nothing to enhance the schools’ education mission, have not worked across disciplines to effect change and are money pits with expenses far greater than ticket sales and contributions.

Why has the UNC Board of Governors not shut down the athletic departments?

Marcus Henry
