UNC looking to counter 'woke' campuses with new school: Creating a 'level playing field'
UNC creates new school for civil discourse to ‘level playing field’: Marty Kotis
University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Board of Trustee Marty Kotis on the new Civic Life and Leadership school to counter liberal ideology.
The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill is taking a major step to combat woke ideology on its campus by announcing the Civic Life and Leadership School.
One Board of Trustee member noted to FOX Business that, while the new school isn't designed to directly tackle woke ideology, it is intended to "level" the playing field for discourse on campus.
"I wouldn't say that we're taking direct aim at workism. I'd say that we're creating an environment for civil discourse," Trustee Marty Kotis said on "Varney & Co" Thursday. "And when one side is represented and the other side is suddenly allowed to speak up, it may seem like we're taking aim – but really we're just trying to create a level playing field."
As part of the university's "Carolina Next: Innovations for Public Good" plan, the North Carolina college announced the school which falls under the plan's "Promote Democracy" strategic initiative.
