If you read Policy Watch’s story last week about the current chaos on the UNC Board of Governors, you know the board’s University Governance Committee is looking at the board’s own bylaws and procedures — particularly as they concern sanctions. This comes in the wake of member Tom Fetzer’s secret, rogue investigation into the former interim chancellor at East Carolina University.
Fetzer and Greenville attorney Peter Romary ran an independent investigation into the recent controversy surrounding former ECU Interim Chancellor Dan Gerlach. Some board members have objected to Fetzer’s actions — and his keeping them secret from the board and UNC system leadership.
On Monday the UNC system office announced the committee will meet via teleconference at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Word is that the meeting will be held entirely in closed session in order to discuss a legal matter.
Policy Watch will continue to follow the story as it develops.
