Headshot of Erskine Bowles

"Whether we agree or not, I learn a lot from your articles, and I think your constructive criticism is valuable for both the university and our taxpayers."

– Erskine Bowles, former University of North Carolina president, 2005-2010

"The Martin Center has earned a reputation for well-researched and highly detailed positions concerning the pressing issues faced by our university campuses today. Their recommendations for reform of university curricula and policies are at times controversial but always provocative and stimulating."

– Burley B. Mitchell, Jr., retired Chief Justice of North Carolina
