So I spent five hours at the Board of Trustees meeting today and at least one interesting thing happened that I can't quite explain. If anyone out there can provide some clarity I would certainly appreciate it.
The background is this. The Board went into executive session and when they returned there were two items to be voted on in open session. The first was pro forma, namely keeping the executive session meeting minutes from the past four board meetings confidential. The second item that apparently had a resolution, though not provided to the public, was "to increase the spending limit for certain litigation." All board members dutifully voted for the increase and the university is now able to spend more money on university litigation.
Does that mean that the limit was increased, read eliminated, so as not to be a limit or was there a dollar limit on the spending on certain litigation? It wasn't clear as there "resolution" was not read into the record. I am a bit confused as I don't possess special administrative knowledge.
