    True. But you said staff. And I think the problem here is people, not policies.

    when the incident investigation is done, the focus is on policies

    Policies might not change, people will enjoy more "training" courses, and on and on. You deal with the people separately.

    At least in my engineering experiences so I assume everyone is the same. UNC will "get" to do both.

    I thought all that 'new info' had already come out in the NCAA investigation & was part of the reason they got the (way to lenient) sanctions already in effect.

During that same span, “several faculty members” stated that there were unauthorized grade changes and they were not aware of who authorized the adjustments."

    I wonder how many of those 59 were football or basketball players?

You changed the "policies." Did UNC not have policies against this sort of thing? Did the old policies condone such cheating and fraud? Perhaps, just perhaps, it was the people, not the policies.
    Typical bureaucratic B.S. If problem with X, then require more signatures to accomplish X.
