DOCUMENT: Read The Notice of Allegations
The five allegations are as follows ...
1. Academic counselors provided impermissible benefits to athletes in African and Afro-American Studies courses from 2002-2011 and allowed 10 student-athletes to exceed independent study credit limits.
2. Academic counselor Jan Boxill provided extra benefits by way of impermissible academic assistance and special arrangements to women's basketball players from 2007-2010.
3. Student services manager Deborah Crowder violated the NCAA principles of ethical conduct in failing to cooperate with the NCAA enforcement staff's requests during this investigation.
4. Professor and chair of the African and Afro-American Studies department Dr. Julius Nyang'oro violated the NCAA principles of ethical conduct in failing to cooperate with the NCAA enforcement staff's requests during this investigation.
5. Allegation Nos. 1 and 2 violated the NCAA principles of institutional control and rules compliance in failing to monitor Boxill and violated lack of institutional control in impermissible benefits provided by the African and Afro-American Studies (AFRI/AFAM) department.
“We take the allegations the NCAA made about past conduct very seriously," UNC said in a statement. "This is the next step in a defined process, and we are a long way from reaching a conclusion. We will respond to the notice using facts and evidence to present a full picture of our case. Although we may identify some instances in the NCAA’s notice where we agree and others where we do not, we are committed to continue pursuing a fair and just outcome for Carolina.
“We believe the University has done everything possible to address the academic irregularities that ended in 2011 and prevent them from recurring. We have implemented more than 70 reforms and initiatives to ensure and enhance academic integrity. We will continue to monitor the effectiveness of those measures and, wherever needed, put additional safeguards in place.”
Athletic Director Bubba Cunningham announced in June 2014 that UNC had received a verbal notice of inquiry from the NCAA that it would “reopen its 2011 examination of academic irregularities.” The NCAA’s decision coincided with new information provided by Kenneth Wainstein during his AFAM investigation. The official explanation was that the NCAA determined that additional people with information and others who were previously uncooperative might be willing to talk this time around. UNC received the Notice of Allegations from the NCAA 11 months later - on May 20.
