The chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will step down next year in the wake of scandals that erupted since he took office four years ago. Holden Thorp says he's resigning effective next June for the future of the university. UNC-Chapel Hill has faced investigations into academic fraud, improper travel spending by fundraisers and special treatment for athletes. Thorp met for almost an hour with the board that oversees the 17-campus university system on Friday. Some members of that board had endorsed Thorp and said he was doing a good job.
