In remarks to the campus community on Oct. 12, 2009, University Day, former UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp reflected on the nation’s economic crisis and Carolina’s exceptional faculty, staff and students.
“We had a great year because this is a great university. Despite the challenges we’ve faced, we’re achieving great things. That’s because of you – our students, faculty and staff. We’re actually a better university today than we were a year ago.”
