NCCFT Statement to the BOT (delivered 9/14/11)

Good Evening –

In very public forums members of the faculty have repeatedly been told by the Administration and the BOT that the NCCFT needs to step up and assist in solving the budgetary issues on the campus.

We have done so at every turn.

We know now, after our meeting on Friday, that while you say “budget” publicly, what you really are after is governance and due process.

Clearly, what you say and what you do are very different things.

We are ready, at any time, for an open and honest discussion with you.
