DA Seeks SBI Probe Of UNC-Chapel Hill Department

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Prosecutors want the State Bureau of Investigation to look into a program at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill where a school review already has found academic fraud.

Orange-Chatham District Attorney Jim Woodall says he made the request Friday. Woodall wants the SBI to investigate the African and Afro-American Studies program at UNC.

The African and Afro-American Studies program was at the center of an investigation into academic fraud involving Tar Heel football players.

A UNC review released this month found 54 department classes that had little or no indication of instruction along with at least 10 cases of unauthorized grade changes for students who did not do all the work.
