It’s only been a few weeks since UNC students returned from their winter breaks, and a lot has changed. Chancellor Carol Folt resigned from her position January 14. She originally hoped her resignation would take effect at the end of the semester, but the Board of Governors gave her until January 31 to pack up her things and leave the university.

At the same time she announced her resignation, Folt ordered the removal of the rest of the Silent Sam statue.
