"The opportunities we have for the (N.C.) A&T farm (in east Greensboro) are going to be huge for us," he [ Jim Melvin, Greensboro's most influential business leader] says."  [7]
" I am so energized by the potential of this research park, in particular the joint schools of nano technology and nano science. The world is seeing explosive growth today in the commercialization of nanotechnology. We will have all of the assets right here in Guilford County that we need to participate in that explosion, and they will be right here at the Gateway University Research Park." said Erskine Bowles President of the University of North Carolina. [1]
"With the millions of federal dollars flowing to this center, what [ we] can do to increase the economic opportunities in Guilford County, the Triad and in the state of North Carolina is truly phenomenal," said Erskine Bowles , president of the UNC system. [A&T lands prized NSF center][31]. The Mission Statement of  UNC  unambiguous is teaching, learning, and research in the most cost effective  manner - not commercialization and research Parks. NCGS § 116-1. (b)  ...the university shall seek an efficient use of available resources to ensure the highest quality in its service to the citizens of the State. Teaching and learning constitute the primary service that the university renders to society.  See  NC Constitution Article IX Sec. 9.

In 2003-04, with the backbone of North Carolina's industrial economy Tobacco, Textiles, and Furniture in recession and appropriations for UNC-System taking an ever increasing multi-billion dollar bite out of state's coffers, North Carolina's Legislature thru House Bill 1264 (HB 1264) direct UNC-BOG to contract a private consulting firm that had experience in higher education to conduct a comprehensive study (HB 1264 Study) of the mission and educational program needs to ensure that the State's citizens are academically prepared and equipped for current job opportunities and jobs of the future in North Carolina's growing knowledge economy. HB 1264 Study was designed to
provide information and recommendations that would assist the General Assembly in setting priorities for funding to address the strategic higher education needs of the State. Staying a step ahead stated North Carolina A&T State University is well positioned to grow programs in some of the areas identified as emerging industries, citing Objective 2.2: Increase access to University intellectual property and resources (faculty, students, research. Create market-oriented university research clusters to better communicate research programs. [3]

Identified Emerging Markets [4]

[4][ examples of research clusters created by NC A&T are the following:
  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Advanced Materials, including Chemicals, Plastics and Nanotechnology
  • Biotechnology and Pharmacology
  • Computing, Software and the Internet
  • Design and Arts
  • Logistics and Distribution
  • Public Health
  • Biotechnology, Bio & Food Sciences
  • Advanced Materials & Nanotechnology
  • Computational Science & Engineering
  • Leadership & Community Development
  • Information Sciences & Technology
  • Transportation & Logistics

Nanotechnology and Biotechnology Should have been NC A&T Signature Program

HB 1264(6) recognized the Historic significance of  Historical Minority   Institutions (HMI), ordered the University to formulate signature programs at them and not to diminish their role.  The study stated " “Signature programs” have been defined as those that are distinctive, that build on existing  strengths, that  advance the institution’s  profile, and that serve regional and/or state economic transformation  needs."
NC A&T is "well known in areas such as advanced materials, nanotechnology, computational science,  and says N.  Radhakrishnan, former  for research and economic development at N.C. A&T. The school also has significant strengths in other areas, including biotechnology, energy and the environment,  information sciences and technology,   logistics and transportation  development.    All  these  endeavors are aligned in eight  research clusters  that bring faculty together across disciplines to  develop large research projects.  These research clusters run in parallel with a number  of multidisciplinary centers and institutes   

"We're Not Following Any Path, We're Blazing A Trail"
 

at N.C. A&T, which develop partnerships  with private and corporate sponsors, educational institutions, and government agencies.  [3]
Expertise in nanotechnology may become a prerequisite for many scientists and engineers that support a wide variety of industries, nano expertise among the North Carolina science and engineering workforce may soon become a competitive advantage issue for the state."
It is predicted that nano scale science will change the nature of almost every human-made product this century. This field has great potential  applications in materials, medicine, electronics, optics, data storage, advanced manufacturing, environment, energy, and national security. Some specific applications include: lightweight new materials with greatly improved strength and wear characteristics; ultra dense computer memory; better drug design and better drug and gene delivery; sensing applications for agricultural, biological, chemical and homeland security applications; improved catalysts for the chemical and automotive industries; new materials to improve fuel economy and carbon dioxide emissions; and improved batteries and energy efficient processes for energy technologies. Nanoscale materials already find use in numerous pharmaceutical, catalytic, electronic, magnetic, optoelectronic, biomedical, cosmetic and energy applications. [ 9
 

UNC BOG's 1994-2009 Long Range  Plans Excluded Historical Black Institutions from Doctoral Research - Extensive status and funding

UNC BOG Long Range Plan 94-99 UNC BOG Long Range Plan 98-2003 UNC BOG Long Range Plan 2000-05
In 2011 HMI North Carolina A&T for the 7th consecutive year  garnered the third largest  highest amount of sponsored research in 17 constituent UNC system  surpassed only by UNC flag ships UNC Chapel Hill and NC State yet the university was continuously designated Master Intensive, by UNC Board of governors for long range planning in years spanning 1994 thru 2009, notwithstanding  Institutional classification allegedly emphasized research and annual amount of federal research support received.     NC  A&T proactive research opportunities may have been inconsistent with  BOG's 1994-2009 long range  plans which  excluded all HBI from Doctoral Research- Extensive or Intensive status designating  NC A&T and NCCU as Master's Compressive.
 

UNC BOG Long Range Plan 2002-2007

Published at northcaroline.edu,  Greensboro Attorney Mr. Phillips chair of the Committee on Budget and Finance, presented the committee’s report, said the recommended 2005-07 Budget Request of the Board of Governors has been under development since the board approved the long-range plan in January.  The request identifies the programs and activities needed to carry out the strategic directions of the Board of Governors.  On behalf of the committee, Mr. Phillips moved that the 2005-07 Budget Request of the Board of Governors be approved and transmitted to the Governor and the General Assembly.   UNC Board of Governors 2005-07 Supplementary Budget request contained 21 million dollars for Transition of UNCC to Doctoral/Research Intensive Status which stated:
UNC Charlotte achieved Doctoral/Research Intensive Status under the Carnegie requirements during the 1999-2000 academic year. For the calculation of this request, UNCC’s faculty-student ratio and the mean faculty teaching salary have been established at the average for ECU and UNCG, the other UNC institutions classified as Doctoral/Research Intensive institutions. The adjustment in the faculty-student ratio results in an additional 37.74 FTE positions. As UNCC expands its doctoral programming, it must also augment its library resources through the purchase of additional books, periodicals, databases, and other materials important to sustaining doctoral- level programs. In addition, this funding would help expand the technological infrastructure, which is crucial to the research needs of doctoral students as well as to the increasingly multifaceted instructional delivery systems of today’s universities. The Board of Governors requests $10,584,757 for each year of the biennium to support this transition.   Transition of UNCC to Doctoral/Research Intensive Status   ($10,484,757 in 2005-06, $10,484,757 in 2006-07). 

NCA&T whose Carnegie Classification is Research University (high research activity) UNC BOG  2005-06 plan was for the Aggies to establish a Millennial Campus with UNC at Greensboro. 

  
     In HB 1264(7)(2003-04)  the Legislature mandated the Board of Governors emphasized existing and new programs at Liberal Arts
Universities specifically aimed at meeting business, industry, workforce, and career needs of North Carolina in the State's changing and growing knowledge-based economy, taking into account, as appropriate, State and regional economic strategies.  With the source of enrollment growth being minorities as white enrollment leveled off across the University of North Carolina, Guilford Technical Community College experiencing record enrollment, ECPI University and ITT Tech offering addition

'' [UNCG Chancellor William E. Moran] [4] ]     What’s left on the plate for HWI Liberal Arts UNCG with a  potential national and regional prominent HBI NCA&T across town?   Would  political astute business organization affiliated with university use political connections to reposition HWI UNCG in and HBI NCA&T out?  UNCG 2003-08 formulated a 2003-08 academic plan to establish a joint Millennial campus with NC A&T.

  • Observation of the committee and full Board meetings suggests that only a few Board members are fully prepared for the meetings,
  • Discussion related to the committee materials is limited,
  • Most of the Board’s detailed work occurs at the committee level, making the committees de facto mini-boards and the full Board meetings mostly perfunctory
  • The full Board acts as a ratification body for committee work

  • that the land formerly  designated for the Central School for the Deaf  allocated to the Board of Governors by the 2003 Session of the General Assembly and a 75- acre parcel of land currently comprising a portion of the North Carolina A&T State University Farm be designated as a joint millennial campus - Designation of Millennial Campuses – North Carolina A&T State University and The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (APPENDIX G) ;
  • permission to execute a ground lease of the land and existing improvements for the Joint Millennial Campus to the Greensboro Center for Innovative Development. As stated in UNC BOG document Appendix C  Lease of Joint Millennial Campus – North Carolina A&T State University and The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (May 2006)  - (APPENDIX C ) Lease of Joint Millennial Campus)
As fraudulent stated by the Erskine Bowles Administration, Jim Phillips, Jr.  Committee on Budget and Finance  in UNC BOG documents  Designation of Millennial Campuses – North Carolina A&T State University and The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (APPENDIX G) (Oct. 10. 2003)  and (APPENDIX C ) Lease of Joint Millennial Campus) (May 2006)  which the 32 member unelected UNC  Board of Governors  approved,  diverting state appropriations and facilities, federal research, and degree programs via the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology to UNC at Greensboro and fraudulent alleged Joint Millennial Campus private education corporation Gateway Research Park, Inc whereby NC A&T's research and academic offerings are transferred and accessed by HWI UNC Greensboro and  to be commercialized by Gateway Research Park, Inc.
UNC BOG Committee on Budget and Finance, March 2006, approved recommending 1.3 million dollars for planning a Biotechnology Building at NC A&T to the BOG. Proposed facility would enable NCA&T to support ongoing and expanding research activities in bioengineering, biotechnology and biomedicine. NC A&T' biotechnology program is interdisciplinary and will incorporate research activities currently housed in the College of Engineering, College of Arts and Sciences, and School of Agriculture and Environment Sciences. The Total cost of this project is $25 Million dollars.
With LEASE approved instead of approving adding the 1.3 Million dollars plan funds for a $ 25 Million dollar Biotechnology Building at NC A&T  the UNC Board of Governors approved, Nov. 2006, 12, 547, 250 for planning & Site development for a new NCA&T/UNCG Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering Building located on the South Campus of the Greensboro Center for Innovative Development alleged (NCA&T/UNCG Joint Millennial Campus, costing $50, 189,000 to the 2007-09 UNC Budget priorities. NCA&T/UNCG Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering Building would include the academic departments, laboratory facilities (teaching an research), and

centers and institutes of the  new School as well as selected centers and institutes currently located at the partner universities.  The facility would serve as the epicenter for research and teaching in nanotechnology for the two partner universities, Greensboro, the Triad and beyond pursuant a policy discussion on the  2007-09 UNC Budget priorities.  UNC BOG agenda is determine by the President (Bowles) with the approval of the Chair (Phillips).

“Steve has managed the discussion with A&T's and UNCG's provost and the dean of the JSNN so that all issues have been resolved." said Dr. Harold Martin, Sr. (April 9, 2009).
 Dr. James Ryan, an UNCG & NC A&T employee who may have acted outside the scope of his employment,   to   Dr. James Sadler Associate Vice President for Academic Planning (GA)  that was placed in the discipline file. Summaries from the Rynan document was taken to BOG by the Bowles-UNC-GA. with recommendations to establish at UNCG stand -alone M.S. and Ph.D. in Nanoscience, non-compliant with UNC Policy. 
UNC-System process for academic degree development at the University of North Carolina consist of UNC-General Administration (UNC-GA) receives notification of intent to plan/Notice of requests to Plan a degree dependant on whether the degree is a BS,MS, or PhD, guide degree development, and make a recommendation to UNC-BOG. The UNC-BOG decides whether to authorize a requested degree. Dr. Thomas Ross, former Chairman UNCG Board of Trustees, is current UNC-GA president and Erskine Bowles- inaugurated at UNCG and the self declared Greensboro Boy”- is the former UNC-GA president. Erskine Bowles hired Dr. Harold Martin, Sr. first as Vice President of Academic affairs at UNC-GA and next as Chancellor at NCA&T – Martin’s Alma Mata.  http://www.northcarolina.edu/aa_planning/degrees/index.htm

UNC Guidelines for Academic Program Development subsection (B). Academic Program Development Requiring Authorization or Action Beyond the Campus Level, states:

The chancellors of the constituent institutions shall communicate to General Administration of the University their intentions with respect to instructional program development:

  1. Notification of intent to plan a new undergraduate or master's program
  2.  Request for authorization to plan a new degree program at the doctoral or first   professional level.
  3. Request for authorization to establish a new degree program.

UNC Policy Manual 400.1.1,1[G] amended 05/06/09 http://www.northcarolina.edu/aa_planning/degrees/index.htm

Checking UNC-BOG website (northcarolina.edu) Nanoscience Discipline file it lacks  documentation supporting authorizations of MS and PhD at UNCG required by Regulations for Academic Program Planning and Evaluation (B) which prompted this investigative report into the authorizations of MS and PhD in Nanoscience at Liberal Arts UNCG.  Examining the Nanoscience discipline files   http://www.northcarolina.edu/dpanels_archive/index.php (CIP 40.9999):

1.      The discipline  file lacked an UNCG Notification to plan a master’s in Nanoscience,

2.      The discipline file contained an unsigned “Revised UNCG Request to Establish a Master’s in Nanoscience,

3.      The discipline file lacked an UNCG Request to plan a PhD in Nanoscience

4.      The discipline file lacked an UNCG Request to Established a PhD in Nanoscience

which prompted this investigation.

The Nanoscience discipline filed lacked an UNCG Chancellor signed request to establish stand alone UNCG M.S and Ph.D. in Nanoscience.  A. Public Record Request (PRR) to  Dr. David H. Perrin UNCG Provost & Executive Vice Chancellor,1/7/11, for a copy of an UNCG chancellor signed request to establish stand alone Masters and PhD Nanoscience degrees at UNCG,  Counsel Steve Serck responded  "In response to your request of 1/7/11, no such documents as you described exists."  (Emphasis added).   UNCG Chancellors Dr. Linda Brady signature was required pursuit Guidelines for Academic Program Development subsection (B) certifying the proposal to establish a M.S. and Ph.D.  Nanoscience degree programs had been reviewed and approved by the appropriate campus committees and authorities and lack thereof demonstrates the degree authorizations weren't pursuant UNC established procedures.

Early in the investigation of lack of supporting documentation for UNCG Nanoscience degree authorizations Dr. James Sadler Associate Vice President for Academic Planning University of North Carolina put forth a chronology of authorizations (e-mail (08/04/2010).  In part:

October 7, 2009
Dean Ryan was told that UNCG needed to submit a revised request to establish.  Both the original and the revised requests are available at this site: http://www.northcarolina.edu/dpanels_archive/index.php.  Emphasis added

November 13, 2009
UNC Board of Governors authorizes the UNCG MS in Nanoscience based on the revised request submitted.  The summary that went to the Board can be viewed in the Planning Committee pre-meeting materials at this location: https://www.northcarolina.edu/bog/index.php.  Emphasis added

December 9, 2009
UNC Graduate Council recommends authorization of the joint PhD.   Emphasis added

January 8, 2010
UNC Board of Governors authorizes the UNCG PhD in Nanoscience based on the revised request submitted.  The summary that went to the Board can be viewed in the Planning Committee pre-meeting materials at this location: https://www.northcarolina.edu/bog/index.php.  Emphasis added

Dr. Sadler's chronology indicate "Dean Ryan was told that UNCG needed to submit a revised request to establish"  and based on summaries from the alleged unsigned "revised request to establish the Board of Governors authorized  stand-alone UNCG M.S. and Ph.D. .The upshot of  Dr. Saddler’s chronology of events is who supplied the UNCG  Revised Request . He establishes the UNCG PhD wasn’t pursuant a Chancellor signed request instead based on the revised request.
The alleged unsigned UNCG M.S. revised request in the Nanoscience discipline file prompted a public records request for source of  document from UNC-GA. “The proposal would have been submitted on behalf of the campus via the UNCG’s provost office.  You would need to contact that office to clarify what individual(s) developed the documents.” Said Ms. Joni Worthington, VP for Communications UNC-GA (e-mail Jan.21, 2011). 

Public Record requests to Dr. David H. Perrin and Dr. James Ryan revealed Dr. James Ryan,  an UNCG& NCA&T employee, created a PDF titled Nano_master's_degree_proposal_-_Revised_10-9-09.pdf and submitted it to Dr. James Sadler Associate Vice President for Academic Planning University of North Carolina dated two days after a Videoconference panel discussion of the proposed M.S. in Nanoscience, Oct. 7, 09.   Dr. Ryan’s Nano_master's_degree_proposal_-_Revised_10-9-09.pdf  the same/similar to the UNCG Revised Proposal in the Master of Science in Nanoscience (MS) discipline file at www.northcarolina.edu.

I have attached a revised version of the Request to Establish for the Professional Master of Science in Nanoscience. I have included the most recent update of the JSNN Management Agreement as well as revised figures on enrollment. I have also provided additional explanation to address questions that were asked during the disciplinary committee review on Wednesday. Please review and let me know if additional information or clarification is needed. Also, similar revisions are needed for the Request to Establish the Ph.D. in Nanoscience. Should I send the latest version of that document to you as well?   Thank you.   Jim

Dr. James Ryan may have acted outside scope of his employment, created and submitted to the Bowles UNC-GA PDF titled Nano_master's_degree_proposal_-_Revised_10-9-09.pdf whose summary the Bowles UNC-GA carried to the BOG resulted in authorizations of  Professional Master’s (Nov. 2009) and Ph.D. ( Jan. 2010) in Nanoscience degrees at UNCG.   Repeated Public Records requests though UNCG Counsel Serck at UNCG to  Dr. David H. Perrin UNCG Provost & Executive Vice Chancellor has not confirmed Dean Ryan creation and submission of PDF Nano_master's_degree_proposal_-_Revised_10-9-09.pdf was acting within the scope of his employments.  Checking on line the UNCG faculty Dr. James Ryan was listed as a Dean at both universities and not in the Provost office at UNCG or NC A&T.  An examination of the of the summaries Ryan document  submitted to the Board of Governors reveal the Bowles Administration had make a recommended the BOG establish the stand alone  M.S. and Ph.D. at UNCG.
 

Nanoscience degrees are interdisciplinary subject to additional requirements under Regulations for Academic Program Planning and Evaluation:  Interdisciplinary Degree program:

An Interdisciplinary Degree program involves two or more academic units, either on the same or different campuses, including non-UNC campuses, in a formal  agreement to offer a program of study drawing on two or more disciplines that will result in a student being awarded an interdisciplinary degree. If more than one campus is involved in offering the program it would also be a joint degree.
HBCU North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NCA&T) and HWWU University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG) submitted Joint NCAT/UNCG Requests to Establish Masters, dated 01.29.09, and Ph.D. , dated 2.15.08,  interdisciplinary Nanoscience degrees based in  a  JSNN Management Agreement  ( March 03, 2008) a formal agreement to offer a program of study required by UNC policy for  interdisciplinary degrees,  Regulations for Academic Program Planning and Evaluation in which Nanoscience Master’s and PhD degrees would be joint.  The Erskine Bowles- UNC-General Administration (GA) referencing a document titled Joint Program Reporting Requirements dated 12/1/08 informed NCA&T and the UNCG the original Memorandum Agreement between the two institutions...is contrary to methods now recommended by General Administration.  As such, the Memorandum (Management Agreement) from March 3, 2008 needs to be revised, updated, and reapproved, tabling without consideration by BOG NCAT/UNCG Request’s to Establish Joint Masters and PhD interdisciplinary Nanoscience degrees  Pursuant NC Public records laws the Joint Program Reporting Official Rules and Procedures were requested "To the best of my knowledge, there is no such document." said, Ms. Joni Worthington Vice President for Communications UNC-GA (E-mail 10.08.10)
Steve has managed the discussion with A&T's and UNCG's provost and the dean of the JSNN so that all issues have been resolved." said Dr. Harold Martin, Sr. (April 9, 2009).   Notwithstanding the dictates of UNC Policy on Regulations for Academic Program Planning and Evaluation Interdisciplinary degrees involving two or more campuses being joint degrees the Bowles-UNC-GA managed revised, updated, and re-approved JSNN Management Agreement (April 24, 2009)  excluded HBU NCA&T from joint interdisciplinary Nanoscience degrees with an organization principle Nanoscience degrees will be awarded by UNCG and Nanoengineering degrees will be awarded by NCA&T, an operating principle adopted in the BOG established in the stand -alone M.S. and Ph.D. in Nanoscience at UNCG. 
The 1.4 Billion dollars plus question representing potential loss of UNC Federal research and Title VI  funding, has University of North Carolina - the legal name of the unelected 32 member NC Board of Governors (UNC BOG) - with statutory supervision of the 16 constituent  public universities n the UNC-System implemented segregationist policies of discrimination, separate and unequal dual system of education, and denial of equal protection with authorization of MS and PhD Nanoscience degree to cross-town HWI UNC Greensboro via the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) at fraudulent alleged statutory (NC.
