History

(File:UNC-6-1819.pdf|thumb|right|University of North Carolina course catalog from June 1819)Chartered by the North Carolina General Assembly on December 11, 1789, the university's cornerstone was laid on October 12, 1793, near the ruins of a chapel, chosen because of its central location within the state.BOOK, Snider, William D., Light on the Hill: A History of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill,weblink UNC Press, Chapel Hill, NC, 1992, 13, 16, 20, 0-8078-2023-7, The first public university chartered under the US Constitution, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is one of three universities that claims to be the oldest public university in the United States and the only such institution to confer degrees in the eighteenth century as a public institution.Snider, William D.

(1992), p. 67. However, Chapel Hill suffered the loss of more of its population during the war than any village in the South, and when student numbers did not recover, the university was forced to close during Reconstruction from December 1, 1870 until September 6, 1875.BOOK, Battle, Kemp P., History of the University of North Carolina: From 1868–1912,weblink Edwards & Broughton Printing Company, Raleigh, NC, 1912, 39, 41, 88, Despite initial skepticism from university President Frank Porter Graham, on March 27, 1931, legislation was passed to group the University of North Carolina with the State College of Agriculture and Engineering and Woman's College of the University of North Carolina to form the Consolidated University of North Carolina.Snider, William D. (1992), pp. 212–213. In 1963, the consolidated university was made fully coeducational, although most women still attended Woman's College for their first two years, transferring to Chapel Hill as juniors, since freshmen were required to live on campus and there was only one women's residence hall. As a result, Woman's College was renamed the "University of North Carolina at Greensboro", and the University of North Carolina became the "University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill."NEWS, UNC Trustees in broad changes of all branches, January 25, 1963, Burlington, NC, The Daily Times-News, 1, JOURNAL, Frost, Susan H., Hearn, James C., Marine, Ginger M., 1997, State Policy and the Public Research University: A Case Study of Manifest and Latent Tensions, The Journal of Higher Education, The Ohio State University Press, Columbus, OH, 68, 4, 363–397, 10.2307/2960008, 2960008, WEB,weblink The History of UNCG, 2005, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, May 20, 2008,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20070804213527weblink">weblink August 4, 2007, yes, WEB,weblink History, 2008, About NC State, North Carolina State University, May 21, 2008, In 1955, UNC Chapel Hill officially desegregated its undergraduate divisions.WEB,weblink North Carolina Collection-UNC Desegregation, Lib.unc.edu, July 10, 2012,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20130119032534weblink">weblink January 19, 2013, yes, mdy-all, File:Silent Sam.jpg|thumb|right|Confederate soldier Silent Sam, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill by sculptor John WilsonJohn WilsonDuring World War II, UNC Chapel Hill was one of 131 colleges and universities nationally that took part in the V-12 Navy College Training Program which offered students a path to a Navy commission.WEB,weblink The Beginning of NROTC at UNC Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina: University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, September 28, 2011, 2011,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20111006084020weblink">weblink October 6, 2011, yes, During the 1960s, the campus was the location of significant political protest. Prior to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, protests about local racial segregation which began quietly in Franklin Street restaurants led to mass demonstrations and disturbance.Snider, William D. (1992), p. 269. The climate of civil unrest prompted the 1963 Speaker Ban Law prohibiting speeches by communists on state campuses in North Carolina.Snider, William D. (1992), p. 270. The law was immediately criticized by university Chancellor William Brantley Aycock and university President William Friday, but was not reviewed by the North Carolina General Assembly until 1965.Snider, William D. (1992), pp. 272–273. Small amendments to allow "infrequent" visits failed to placate the student body, especially when the university's board of trustees overruled new Chancellor Paul Frederick Sharp's decision to allow speaking invitations to Marxist speaker Herbert Aptheker and civil liberties activist Frank Wilkinson; however, the two speakers came to Chapel Hill anyway. Wilkinson spoke off campus, while more than 1,500 students viewed Aptheker's speech across a low campus wall at the edge of campus, christened "Dan Moore's Wall" by The Daily Tar Heel for Governor Dan K. Moore.Snider, William D. (1992), pp. 274–275. A group of UNC Chapel Hill students, led by Student Body President Paul Dickson, filed a lawsuit in U.S. federal court, and on February 20, 1968, the Speaker Ban Law was struck down.Snider, William D. (1992), pp. 267–268. In 1969, campus food workers of Lenoir Hall went on strike protesting perceived racial injustices that impacted their employment, garnering the support of student groups and members of the University and Chapel Hill community.From the late 1990s and onward, UNC Chapel Hill expanded rapidly with a 15% increase in total student population to more than 28,000 by 2007.

Department of Public Policy

The UNC Chapel Hill Department of Public Policy, established in 2001, is a public policy program offering specializations in areas such as global health policy, education policy, tax policy, and social justice.Established in 1979, the Curriculum in Public Policy Analysis was one of the first undergraduate degree programs in public policy, and a charter member of the national Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management. It was augmented in 1991 by an interdisciplinary PhD Curriculum in Public Policy Analysis. In 1995 the two curricula were combined and began recruiting their own core faculty. In 2001 the combined curriculum became the present Department of Public Policy.

Honor Code

The university has a longstanding Honor Code known as the "Instrument of Student Judicial Governance," supplemented by an entirely student-run Honor System to resolve issues with students accused of academic and conduct offenses against the university community.WEB,weblink The Honor Code, Honor Court of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, April 14, 2009, The Honor System is divided into three branches: the Student Attorney General Staff, the Honor Court, and the Honor System Outreach. The Student Attorney General is appointed by the Student Body President to investigate all reports of Honor Code violations and determine whether or not to bring charges against the student as detailed in the "Instrument." The Attorney General is supported by a select staff of around 40 students. The Honor Court is led by the Chair, who is appointed by the Student Body President, and supported by Vice Chairs who adjudicate all students' hearings. The Honor Court as a whole is made up of some 80 selected students. The Honor System Outreach is a branch of the System solely devoted to promoting honor and integrity in the university community. UNC Chapel Hill is the only public university, with the exception of the military academies, that has a completely student-run system from the beginning to the end of the process.
