Politics, and the Ouster of a Popular President, Cloud UNC’s Search for a New Leader

On a rainy Monday evening this month, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte was prepared for a full house.
The university’s Harris Alumni Center was set to play host to one of four "input sessions" intended to give faculty members, students, and the public a chance to weigh in on the search for a new president of the UNC system. About 60 chairs had been set up in one room, including 16 seats reserved for members of the university system’s Board of Governors. If those seats filled up, space had been made for scores more attendees in another room. Between the two rooms stood a table full of cookies, coffee urns, and bottled water.
But many of the chairs stayed empty.
