Members of the UNC Association of Student Governments are meeting at East Carolina University this weekend to continue discussing ways to improve student input in tuition and fees decisions.
President Atul Bhula and members of the association will vote on legislation that supports Bhula’s attempts to obtain a vote on the UNC-system Board of Governors.
Bhula currently is a student non-voting member of the board.
Phillip Dixon, a board member who was student body president at ECU in the 1960s, will be attending the meeting to tell the association about the history of the Board of Governors.
Dixon, who was invited to the meeting by Bhula, said he also hopes to answer any questions the association might have about budget cuts.
Bhula said he plans to invite other board members and UNC administrators to future meetings.
“My goal is to bridge that connection between ASG and the Board of Governors as well as the faculty,” he said.
