In today’s Pope Center piece, Jay Schalin writes about the new president of the University of North Carolina system, Thomas Ross.
Ross is currently the president of Davidson College. He says that his focus as UNC president will be educational excellence. (Could he say anything else?) Given his evident leftist political inclinations, one has to suspect that his ideas about what makes a university excellent probably won’t dovetail with those of Phi Beta Cons readers. The Pope Center will have more to report after Ross takes office early next year.
