NC A&T is safe. The university is too big and has too much history and academic success to close. Its the largest HBCU in North Carolina. It really is the premier HBCU in NC. I just don't see A&T closing. Even an HBCU like Winston-Salem State would be safe. More than likely it will be one or two of the smallest schools in the UNC system that would close because it would have less of a negative impact. UNC School of the Arts in Winston-Salem should be worried. I know some say the school is too unique to close but how difficult would it be to combine the programs at that school with a larger university that already offers similar programs in that field? Its a lot easier to shut down a specialty school that focuses on one educational area than to shut down an entire university. If UNCSA's program's are transferred to a big university such as UNC Greensboro, there might have to be some investments made like building a production studio for the students. In the end it would save the UNC school system money combining UNCSA programs with a bigger university which has other programs the UNCSA doesn't have that would compliment the filming arts such as computer science.

This is the same group of people that outlawed cleavage. I don't think they care about how they look in the media.

This is what we are seeing on the national level as well.
You are so right about the Republicreeps, the party of no solutions, just rhetoric!

Why not make UNCSA a part of Winston Salem State or would that also cause problems? It may work and if HBCU's like West Virginia State, Bluefield State and Kentucky State have predominately or relatively high White student enrollments; why not consolidate those 2 state institutions within the same city?

No. This line of thinking is why K-12 public schools are terrible. Rolling an underperforming school into one that's above average does nothing but destroy the good that you have on hand.

UNCSA has unique production facilities and performance spaces to fulfill its mission that Winston-Salem State doesn't have. It would cost a lot of money to build the same facilities on the WSSU campus. UNCSA also has its own admissions standards (auditions, portfolios, etc.). You'd either have to destroy these standards or keep all the UNCSA admissions staff. In the end, this would be nothing more than symbolic and not reduce funding requirements.

UNSCA is a lot more than another four year college, It is a conservatory that requires way, way more than just going to class.

I would say my daughter averages 5 - 6 hours a day working on films, or projects outside of formal classes. They are all like that. It is not unusual to work into the early morning hours in order to gain access to required resources. Her first couple of years it was seven day weeks more than not. Certainly not a diploma mill.

UNSCA has little in common with the other four year colleges in the state, that is why those that seek its consolidation just dont have enough information.

Are you in middle school? Can you have a conversation without made up pet names? Don't let your hate blind you.
