'No justifiable reason'
If anyone doubts that FAMU President James Ammons is feeling heat in North Carolina (see today's St. Petersburg Times story here), read this statement from Erskine Bowles (left), the president of the University of North Carolina system. Bowles sent it to the Raleigh News & Observer, which ran excerpts when it broke the story about the NCCU satellite campus.
"I can think of no justifiable reason why the former NCCU leadership would have completely ignored and failed to abide by the appropriate approval process in creating this program," Bowles wrote.
