Education Department Will Review Anti-Male Bias At University Of North Carolina

“…The complaint was filed by the National Coalition for Men Carolinas (NCFM), which argued the UNC system deprived male students and employees of due process rights. For more than a year, NCFM Carolinas president Greg Josefchuk exchanged emails with the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) in an attempt to get the office to make a determination on whether or not it would move ahead with an investigation. On Friday, the organization finally received a formal decision.

OCR dismissed claims that the UNC system engages in systemic bias in its Title IX processes that determine whether a student (almost always a male) violated the school’s policies regarding sexual assault and sexual harassment. The office also dismissed the claim that UNC has an anti-male bias in its hiring practices.

The office will, however, explore NCFM’s claim that UNC’s policies are biased against male students. The office will open a formal investigation into this matter against Appalachian State University and UNC-Asheville. OCR said it would not investigate this claim at UNC-Chapel Hill because it already had a similar investigation open.

Chapel Hill has been the setting of some of the most prominent — and unlikely — accusations against male students. Andrea Pino has become famous for her often changing allegations that the school didn’t investigate her accusation (which she made anonymously with a limited description of the alleged assailant) and didn’t treat her well after she made her claim (which came after she tried to drop a class and was told she couldn’t)…”

Just THREE percent of 2019 Dartmouth grads support Trump

“…A Dartmouth newspaper found that only three percent of seniors at the school have a favorable view of President Donald Trump.

Student-run publication The Dartmouth posted its Senior Survey in early June, detailing various opinions and trends for the graduating class. This annual survey includes the seniors’ political leanings and preferences.

Dartmouth’s conservative student organizations suffered a similar decrease in favorability during the last year, from their already low campus ratings. Favorability toward The Dartmouth Review, the school’s conservative newspaper, fell from 14 to six percent, and favorability toward the College Republicans fell from 14 to just nine percent. Liberal student groups received the opposite response in attitude — with the College Democrats’ unfavorability rate falling from 14 to 12 percent from the 2018 to 2019 graduating classes…”
