Board of Trustees hold emergency meeting

The UNC Board of Trustees will hold an emergency meeting via conference call today to discuss “personnel matters,” but no specifics have been released.

The meeting will be conducted in closed session besides opening and closing remarks. It will start at 11 a.m. and last about an hour, according to a news release.

Karen Moon, director of UNC News Services, said she could not reveal any more about the meeting’s purpose.

Sallie Shuping-Russell, chairwoman of the budget, finance and audit committee of the board, said in an e-mail Sunday that she wasn’t sure about the topic of the meeting.

“There are enough things going on here that need discussing, I really can’t comfortably say what this (meeting) is about,” she said.

UNC is in the midst of filling top positions, including chancellor, provost and vice chancellor for University advancement. It is also addressing its handling of sexual assault cases.
