Trustees donate near $1 million to political causes, spark partisan concerns

Among the the UNC Board of Trustees' current members, there are six registered Republicans, two registered Democrats and two unaffiliated trustees. Their job responsibility is in part to promote "the sound development of its institution."

Members of the UNC Board of Trustees have collectively donated roughly $717,000 to Republican political candidates, campaigns and committees, compared to roughly $137,000 to unaffiliated ones and $106,000 to Democratic ones.
