UNC Unveils "Complete Carolina" Program To Help Former Student-Athletes Get Degrees
Published July 25, 2014
UNPAVED ROADS: UNC Senior Associate AD/Communications Steve Kirschner said that some former scholarship athletes have "returned and paid their own way, while others have been able to access financial support as athletic budgets have allowed." In Durham, Laura Oleniacz notes the school is "broadening that commitment to scholarship athletes." Kirschner: "It’s a commitment to doing it across the board, and a commitment to educate students while they’re here that this is something they can do if for some reason, they have to leave before they get their degrees.” Cunningham said that UNC officials plan to "actively recruit former-student-athletes to return" (Durham HERALD-SUN, 7/25).
