UNC faculty to Puppetmaster: Keep your damn money

It must be frustrating when you can't even give away $5 million. But that's the showdown that's emerging at UNC Chapel Hill, where faculty members are balking at selling their souls to a new curriculum that might be funded by Art Pope. The shootout will occur on May 10 when the faculty will vote on a resolution that the university stop its pursuit of funding for western civilization courses from the John William Pope Foundation.

According to the Durham Herald

Art Pope, the foundation's leader, said on Wednesday that it is a "double standard" for faculty members to bash the Western studies grant and accept other outside funding. Pope said he will consider the university's proposal for the funding despite faculty opposition and may decide whether to give the money as early as May or June.
