Trustees ask Thorp to stay

The UNC Board of Trustees passed a resolution on Sept. 19 requesting that Chancellor Holden Thorp reconsider his decision to step down.

In the resolution, the board asked Thorp to reconsider because they “think it is in the best interest of this university.” Board members also said they fully endorse the resolutions that have already been passed in support of Thorp by the executive branch of student government, the UNC-Chapel Hill Faculty Council, the Council of Chairs of the College of Arts and Sciences and the UNC-Chapel Hill Employee Forum.

Thorp has been unwavering in his decision and will resign effective June 30, 2013.
