Resolution On the Board of Governors Settlement Concerning the Confederate Monument

December 18, 2019

At a meeting held on Wednesday, December 18, 2019, the Faculty of the University of North Carolina School of Law adopted the following resolution:

While we continue to support the permanent removal of the confederate monument known as Silent Sam from campus, we condemn the settlement that gives the statue and $2.5 million to the Sons of Confederate Veterans.  Such a settlement supports white supremacist activity and therefore violates the university’s mission as well as its obligations to the state.
