A guide to review, response and reform at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Our Commitment: Taking Action and Moving Forward Together
 

As part of an annual report about undergraduate admissions to the Faculty Council on April 25, 2014, Stephen Farmer, Vice Provost for Enrollment and Undergraduate Admissions, provided a new report that focuses on the admission of first-year student-athletes.

The new report, which covers the 2013 first-year class of student-athletes, was developed at the request of the Faculty Council’s Advisory Committee on Undergraduate Admissions, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and the Department of Athletics. The aim is to foster transparency; protect the privacy of individual students; provide context for campus and national conversations about the academic preparation and success of student-athletes; enable assessment of admissions and other academic processes; disaggregate information meaningfully and fairly; encourage ongoing improvement; and provide leadership.

The key sections included in this report:

  • Introduction by the working group that developed the report, including a description of how prospective student-athletes are evaluated for admission;
  • Facts about enrolling first-year student-athletes in the class entering in 2013;
  • A ‘question & answer’ section regarding the data and the admissions process for student-athletes;
  • Definitions of key terms used in the report.
