The Board of Trustees will mark its first meeting of the academic year today with an organizational change.
In order to promote more focused conversation within its committees, members have split the University affairs committee into two parts — establishing a branch for student affairs and another for academic affairs.
Previously, the board consisted of committees for University affairs, building and grounds and audit and finance.

“University affairs seemed to have the heaviest agenda,” said Wade Hargrove, who was elected board chairman in July.
Last year, the University affairs committee often featured detailed discussions of both student-related and academic issues, particularly Greek system reform.
