Here's what you need to know about the aftermath of the AKPsi suspension

A five-year suspension of UNC’s chapter of the co-ed business fraternity Alpha Kappa Psi came earlier this year after violations related to alcohol, hazing and disruption of an investigation by the chapter’s national body. But a new business organization named Scale and Coin has been born at UNC in the months since, drawing resources from Duke University.  At its helm are some former AKPsi members, and students who were in the process of joining the UNC chapter at the time it was suspended.


Dr. Shimul Melwani talks about how the Kenan Flagler Business School has changed over the 8 years that she has been there on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019. "Students are more engaged with the world than they've ever been," Melwani says.

Happy 100th birthday, Kenan-Flagler!

MBA candidate Charlotte Burnett will always remember UNC Kenan-Flagler's Business School as a reflection of it's own core values — excellence, leadership, integrity, teamwork and community.
