UNC-Chapel Hill board meets in closed session


CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - The board of trustees of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is meeting in closed-door session to discuss a personnel issue, and among those participating is Holden Thorp, who's announced his resignation.

Thorp is participating in Wednesday's meeting via conference call. Thorp said Monday that he was resigning in June after struggling the past two years with several scandals, including the most recent one dealing with fundraisers who traveled for personal reasons using donated money.

Board chairman Wade Hargrove said he expects an announcement when the meeting ends. Hargrove says the board must take stock after an eventful week.

The board will hold its regular meeting next week, when it will discuss the search for a new chancellor. Also, students plan a rally Friday in support of Thorp.
