The University of North Carolina’s presidential search committee broke the state’s already lax open meetings law in selecting a new president to recommend to trustees, the Raleigh News & Observer reported. North Carolina law requires only that such boards announce when and where they’ll meet. Then they can talk privately if they choose. The search group, however, never announced their interviewing, conducted behind closed doors in a Charlotte hotel. They then recommended that former presidential (Clinton) Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles head the 16-campus university. (10/6/05)
