The full Board of Trustees will convene today for the first time since a report on academic fraud in the African and Afro-American studies department was released by the University.
University spokesman Mike McFarland said the board will discuss planned policy and procedural improvements for the department today.
The report — which found irregularities in oversight and course instruction within the department — has prompted the State Bureau of Investigation to look into potential criminal activity that might have taken place.
The board will also hear a report on faculty retention rates authored by former Student Body Vice President Zealan Hoover with the help of other student leaders on campus.
Hoover — who will present his findings at the board meeting today — said the student task force on faculty retention began work in May 2011 in hopes of finding low-cost or cost-neutral ways to improve faculty retention rates at UNC.
