Re: “UNC Chancellor James Moeser flies on the taxpayers' dime

Your Aug. 15 story, UNC Chancellor James Moeser flies on the taxpayers dime, is way off base. Traveling to meet with donors who give millions to UNC to improve education for our students is what a chancellor is supposed to do. Supporting a team appearing in a national championship is what a chancellor is supposed to do. And representing Carolina at national higher education meetings is what the chancellor of the nations first public university is supposed to do. The demands of the chancellors job require that every minute of every day of every week is maximized. Sometimes that means commercial air travel is the most efficient; other times, the Universitys own planes or a state plane allow him to pack more into his schedule. Your reporter also makes it sound as though the chancellor is purchasing new planes for himself. Thats ridiculous. Our Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Program is now operating with an aging fleet of Beechcraft Barons, some of which were built in the 1970s. Affiliated University foundations and the UNC Health Care System are working together to buy the two planes. The beneficiaries will be the patients served by the physicians delivering medical services in clinics across the state. Matthew G.
