There are a lot of factors in play there. More competition chasing less

students. ECSU and UNCP offering $500 tuition in our backyard doesn't help. Plus, the demographics are changing in ENC. The population is shrinking. The current funding model is based on the number of students. So, I guess the question is, what size university do we want and need to be to serve our mission of "servire". Is that number 23,000 or 30,000?

Mitchelson understands this being the former Provost. That is exactly why we don't need a change of Leadership in the Chancellor's office right now. No one understands our situation better than Mitchelson.

I haven't always agreed with Harry's tactics in the past, but he raised a lot of good points in that interview. It is time to move forward. Stop the infighting.
