Following a week of big announcements, the UNC-system Board of Governors met in committee sessions Thursday.
Former Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings was elected Oct. 23, as the next system president and board Chairperson John Fennebresque resigned Monday — leaving the board’s leadership in a state of transition until Spellings assumes the presidency in March.
Thursday’s committee meetings included discussions on budget allocations, tenured faculty and the recent bond referendum.
The full board will meet today for the first regularly scheduled meeting since September.
Committee approves operating budget
With the exception of board member Marty Kotis, the Committee on Budget and Finance voted unanimously to approve the operating budget allocations for the UNC-system for fiscal year 2015-2016.
