Once again, the crown jewel of higher education in NC along with PeeDee gets caught fudging **checks notes** community service hours! I would say "unf***ingbelievable" but I think we know better. It really trips me out to hear fans of the ACC and AAC talk about their conference's "academic excellence" only to see this type of fraud. What a joke!?!

“These AmeriCorps programs were meant to support at-risk and low-income youth academically. Instead, the universities and agency involved here ran them in a way that allowed participants to falsify their timesheets and robbed North Carolina communities of the assistance they were supposed to receive,” AmeriCorps Inspector General Deborah Jeffrey said in a statement.

UNC-Chapel Hill agreed to pay the government $375,000, while ECU agreed to pay $140,000 and the commission $327,500 to resolve the claims. The universities and the commission denied any wrongdoing in making the settlements."

Yep, no wrong doing, nothing to see here!
