The Board of Regent…

The Board of Regents spent their second day behind closed doors Friday, discussing legal issues stemming from the tenure debate.
Much like Thursday, regents met with four attorneys representing the University, three top administrators, two members of the regents’ staff and a University public relations representative.
Because the two-hour meeting was covered by attorney-client privilege, no minutes were taken and the information discussed remains confidential.
By law, any changes to policy must be made at a public meeting.
Thomas Reagan, chairman of the board, and University President Nils Hasselmo scheduled another private meeting for Wednesday evening.
The regents’ monthly meetings, which are open to the public, are scheduled for Thursday and Friday.
