I didn't say Pat wouldn't help, just that people who've lost before statewide usually get ignored.
CHP sold out.  I declare Nick McEntyre our Chancellor-In-Exile!

This isn't the kind of thing we should forget about when there's no article on it.

I'm not backing the idea, I just put 2 and 2 together in this thread and figured I'd get everyone's opinion.

Would you like Pat to be our next Chancellor?

C-Pip's right.  About EVERYTHING.

No, I'd rather he was in the governor's office. He could do us more good there than in Bissel House.

Here are the home locations and loyalties of current BoG members. I can see four problems with this just by glancing at the map. Light purple is "neutral" but some are from lesser NC System alma maters and their loyalty may be to mother. Notice the complete absence of the color green.  >:(

There was talk of McCrory as Governor or Chancellor.  What about, at a minimum, on the BOGs?

I think Normmm was probably right all along, we'll be really good next year.

There's not even a Charlotte grad on the BoG. Why do you think the state legislature or his political adversary would appoint him?

Def. contact State Reps & Sens.
 
So when is the Charlotte School of Arch. or Engin. in CH starting?   :))
 
Theoretically even a CH grad "should" be in favor of fairness.

Not saying it will happen.  Just wondering what would actually be best for the university.

I had previously emailed the UNC BOG, but I didn't get any replies.  I just sent another message including this article, and finally got a reply from one of them.  He said that he has seen the article and appreciates Dr. Reiling's perspective.  That probably counts for absolutely nothing, but it was nice to at least get a reply.


Reminder, if you haven't sent a message to the BOG already, here's some more ammo.

Sounds like a pretty cool guy.

My letter to the Chancellor.  He probably wont even read it, but it was worth a shot.


Chancellor Dubois,

There is nothing on this Earth that brings me   more joy than being a student at UNC Charlotte.  I firmly believed that   this school was the right place for me from the moment I first arrived   on campus for my tour.  Now, as I approach graduation four years later, I   can say with a clear conscience that my feelings of loyalty, pride, and   satisfaction of my college experience have increased in folds.  One of   the most appealing things to me about this great University, both in the   past and the present, is the feeling that the best is always yet to   come.  I saw an opportunity to become a student leader, to make an   impact, to leave my mark, and most importantly have a hand in the steady   march that we as a University are making towards national prominence   and regional adoration and respect.  I joined SGA, helped push the   grassroots football effort, and continue to work with students everyday   so that they may hopefully understand the Forty-Niner Pride that I have   and realize how important it is for them to have the same pride in their   university.
 
With that said, there is one pressing issue that we face; an issue   that is far more important than football, a name change, new marketing,   or increased enrollment.  I am of course talking about the addition of a   4-year medical school at UNC Charlotte.  I fear that the current plan   for UNC-Chapel Hill to put a branch campus adjacent to our university   will be nothing less than a devastating, crippling blow to our   University's chance of ever attaining the national prominence or   regional respect it deserves.  The current plan is purely the continuity   of the "know your role, shut your hole" mentality that we constantly   deal with from the General Assembly and UNC Board of Governors. As many   have noted, specifically Dr. Richard Reiling in this morning's Charlotte   Observer column, the current plan is not beneficial to the city of   Charlotte or UNC Charlotte in any way, shape, or form.  It is merely a   band-aid (and that would be a best case scenario) that does not suture   the wound of a severe shortage of M.D.'s in our region.  These incoming   medical students will not feel any loyalty to UNC Charlotte; they will   instead continue feeding the baby-blue machine, waiting eagerly to   finish their degree at the mothership institution.  Not only that, but   as Dr. Reiling mentioned, there is very little chance they will return   to the Charlotte region upon graduation, and even if they did, they will   proudly claim UNC School of Medicine as their alma mater, not UNC   Charlotte.
 
Indeed, the politics of this issue within the UNC System are more   complicated for you than they are for me, a lowly undergraduate with   some fire in his belly.  Other institutions such as UNCG have fallen   victim to the influence of the mothership when they want to expand their   professional programs, as evidenced by the nixing of their proposed   Pharm D program in favor of a branch UNC-CH program.  But please   understand that this University has always had to plow through   detractors for over six decades, and the push is more important now than   ever before, especially concerning the Medical school that I fear will   never belong to us.  I applaud your efforts for controlled enrollment   growth, loyalty to football even in these economic times, the   never-ending construction (while annoying to drive through, nothing   makes me more proud than to see new buildings shoot up everywhere), and   the ever-increasing academic profile under your tenure here.  On this   issue, however, we must not lay down. We must not accept that this is   the "best option in these economic times" as you stated in the Observer   article on Sept. 23.  The only medical school built in Charlotte needs   to be an INVESTMENT IN OUR FUTURE, not another notch in the belt for   Chapel Hill while the baby-blue BOG laughs all the way to the bank.  I   believe in my heart of hearts that Miss Bonnie would do backflips in her   grave if the current branch-campus plan were to go into action.

....ctd

...

"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do     something. What I can do, I ought to do, and what I ought to do, by the     Grace of God, I will do."  Miss Bonnie's mantra has never been more     applicable to any one situation than the one we face currently.  We have     not done everything in our power to ensure that the future of this     University is as bright and prosperous as it could be.  UNC Charlotte     will only realize its full potential as a complete University.  Football     is a base camp.  Our Ph.D. programs are the glaciers we use our pick     axes to scale.  Professional schools (specifically a medical school)   are   the summit.  We have a mountain to climb, Chancellor Dubois, and   you   are our trusted Sherpa. Please do not give up on making the UNC     Charlotte School of Medicine a reality, for I honestly believe that this     is a battle than can be won.
 
Cordially,

Job William Fickett
Class of 2011
