The new Commission on History, Race and a Way Forward is seen by some as a continuation of former UNC Chancellor Carol Folt's Task Force on UNC-Chapel Hill History. Some campus members share their expectations for the new commission, highlighting how they hope it will differ from Folt's task force. Folt's task force was instituted after the Board of Trustees changed the name of Saunders Hall in 2016 and then enacted a 16-year freeze on naming buildings. Board of Trustees Chairperson Richard Stevens said Guskiewicz's commission will build on work done by Folt's, and that it will have as much time as it needs to explore UNC's history.
