Title

"UNC Board approved Vet School for NCSU," December 19, 1974

Description

The Board of Governors approved the location of the Vet School at NCSU and a “related activity at NCA&T on Dec. 19, 1974. Julius Chambers, one of the four African-American board members, attempted to delay the vote until a plan for NCA&T was developed. Chambers as well as two other African-American board members were the only members to vote against the proposal. Chambers said that the compromise measure “sort of passes a crumb to A&T, and that is the same kind of discrimination that has taken place historically.” He went on to argue that A&T was not competitive with NCSU because of years of discrimination. By not locating the Vet School at A&T it was “symptomatic of the problems” at other HBCUs and the UNC systems unwillingness to fix these problems in order to prevent duplications of programs.
