blp concern[edit]

An issue involving the misbehavior of a single student--ann issue that does not actually affect NCSU-- is way out of proportion here, and in my opinion constitutes a BLP violation. Yes, there is a suitable place for it in Wikipedia , and the information is there. Do not restore it here as well. DGG ( talk ) 01:47, 29 September 2009 (UTC)


The section in question does not represent only the actions of Mangum, but rather an institutional effort by the leadership and faculty of the college to presume guilt of the three vindicated players. Having said that, to say that the actions of its faculty and administration support of Nifong's actions are "an does not actually affect NCCU", demonstrates that there is an unfamiliarity with the events mentioned. I have reviewed the BLP policy and it does not disclude the materials posted so long as they are properly sourced. I have done my best to make sure that they are. My suggestion to you is that you familiarize yourself with the events that have transpired during the 2006 Duke University lacrosse case. Cheerio.

I continue to disagree, and think this is inappropriate coverage of a peripheral issue. No point arguing it here, so I am listing it at Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons/Noticeboard to see what others think . DGG ( talk ) 23:41, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

I also removed the material about another student as unsourced negative BLP. Unless there are good sources for this, it cannot stand in any article. Even if sourced, I am not sure of appropriateness. I listed this at the noticeboard also. DGG ( talk ) 23:52, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

Suggested edit - Environmental Leadership[edit]

I don't know if this warrants a whole new section or if it could go under History:

North Carolina Central University is one of three North Carolina colleges that have partnered with Environmental Defense Fund (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Environmental_Defense_Fund) since 2009 to identify cost-effective energy efficiency improvements. This program is called Climate Corps. Trained graduate students spend their fellowships identifying and analyzing savings opportunities. They also develop detailed investment and implementation plans that help their hosts cut costs and reduce emissions. Their host organizations in turn commit to opening up their financial and operational records, providing senior level support and sharing results. (http://edfclimatecorps.org/page.cfm?tagID=55053)

Climate Corps helped North Carolina Central University find improvements to heating and cooling settings that could save $1.4 million per year with no upfront costs and reduce carbon emissions by 30 percent. (http://edfclimatecorps.org/page.cfm?tagID=55053)

There is also a YouTube video about it that may or may not be appropriate to cite - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdzIWjXCeac

Student Media[edit]

Hello! I've added some information on the Campus Echo, NCCU's campus newspaper under a new section that I have called Student Media. I've included references to the Campus Echo's official website as well as digitized copies of earlier versions of the newspaper. Please let me know if you have any feedback about these changes!

Red Zone[edit]

The term "Red Zone" was first used in football at North Carolina Central University in 1976 in a National publication "Coaching Men's Athletics by assistant coach George Suggs. Stopping the High Percentage Pass" was published in 1976 eight years to before the popularity of the use of the term Red Zone was first used by NFL coach Joe Gibbs. The article was base on NCCU winning the National Statistical championship in Pass Defense by the NAIA with an average of a mere 50.6 yards per game. Louis Breeden was the leader of that defense at Safety. The defense led the nation with 22 interception that same year. The original manuscript of that article is in my possession and I would like to give it to the University. NCCU can establish itself as the site of the Term Red Zone. Dr.Willie Smith cated as Co author former head coach and faculty member of the PE department. submitted by Dr. George L Suggs assistant football coach NCCU 1973-76 , SCState Assistant 1980-86 SC State Hall Fame inductee 2012 and Durham native NCCU graduate school 1974 MA and 1982 MA Ed.
