Chancellor Moeser Thanks Supporters Of Bond Referendum

TO THE EDITOR: On behalf of everyone at Carolina - faculty, staff, students and even future students - thank you for so overwhelmingly supporting the University when casting your votes Nov. 7 for the $3.1 billion bond referendum. By placing your confidence and trust in both the university and community college systems, you have invested wisely in the future of North Carolina. The voting tallies represent a remarkable vote of confidence in the work all of us do in Chapel Hill each day. I wish to commend Student Body President Brad Matthews and his chief of staff, Chris McClure, for their tireless efforts to shine the spotlight on the bonds. Those of you who took advantage of the experimental "no excuse" polling sites and voted early at the Morehead Building have senior Jessica Triche to thank for three years of hard work to make that convenience possible. Carolina will receive nearly $500 million to fund the renovation and repair of existing buildings as well as construct new buildings that are central to our mission of teaching, research and public service. Now UNC can accept its fair share of the enrollment surge expected across the university system in the next decade. We will have the means to modernize 120 lecture halls and classrooms so that 21st century students can learn in a 21st century environment. And our faculty, whose research produces the new knowledge that will affect the life of every North Carolinian, will have the laboratory and scientific space they need to do their jobs even better. You, the voters, have unlocked this University's future by supporting the bond referendum, which will return benefits to our state for decades to come. I reiterate my pledge to North Carolinians to take that investment and triple it with private support through future fund raising. Thanks again for your support of Carolina and public higher education. James Moeser Chancellor
