Nearly seven years after its investigation began, the U.S. Department of Education stated in a final program review report that UNC acted in violation of federal laws on campus safety and crime information throughout the department's review period while demonstrating a lack of administrative capability that “remains a matter of serious concern for the department.” Clery Act expert S. Daniel Carter told The Daily Tar Heel that the University is "certainly looking at six figures" in federal fines, and he called the department's description of UNC's administrative issues “one of the most blistering I’ve read in many years."
The investigation began in 2013, stemming from a federal complaint filed by four UNC students and a former administrator.

Video footage of Silent Sam demonstrator Mark Porlides shows the Dec. 3 night of his arrest, where officers charged him with larceny, assault of a campus officer and resisting an officer. Since then, the graduate student learned that the charges against him were dismissed.

His experience adds to the year's ongoing conversation about policing on campus, and how the relationship between law enforcement and activism has been muddied.
