Campus Connection

Football returns to the campus of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2013, more than 60 years after the college first tried the sport – only to see the team fold a year later. Chancellor Phil Dubois believes a new football program, while an expensive endeavor, will enhance the experience of its students and build a connection to a community which might not otherwise have a reason to visit the north Charlotte campus. On this program, Dubois discusses the costs and benefits of college athletics. Jeff Beaver of the Charlotte Regional Sports Commission and baseball General Manager Scott Brown of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans contribute to the dialogue.
