The meeting comes on the heels of the news regarding former football player Michael Waddell’s irregular enrollment into the Exercise and Sports Science graduate program.
Cheryl Thomas, former admissions director for UNC’s graduate school, shared information with The (Raleigh) News & Observer regarding the athletic department’s encouraged enrollment of Waddell into the competitive graduate program during fall 2003.
Thomas said Waddell applied months after the program’s deadline without a GRE score, according to reports by The (Raleigh) News & Observer.
Members of the committee didn’t say which student-athlete’s case they reviewed on Tuesday.
The open portion of the meeting revolved around the issue of sports teams’ practice procedures during last week’s snowstorms.
A faculty member contacted committee chairwoman Joy Renner on Friday afternoon about concerns of the appropriateness and safety of student-athletes practicing when the University was in Condition 3, which requires classes to be canceled and offices to be closed.
