Don’t miss Crucial Conversation with UNC President Tom Ross

Few public institutions have brought greater acclaim to the state of North Carolina or contributed more to general prosperity over the last century than its world class university system. Now, however, as state lawmakers contemplate a new and vastly reduced state budget for the upcoming biennium, the UNC system faces the greatest threat to its health and wellbeing in decades. What is at stake in the current debate over the university system budget?  What can and should average North Carolinians be doing and saying about the matter?

Come hear some answers to these and other related questions with our very special guest, the President of the University of North Carolina, Thomas W. Ross.
