Jan 28, 2020

The student government board for the University of North Carolina system is calling for an investigation into allegations that two East Carolina University trustees tried to influence a student election. The Daily Reflector of Greenville reports that the General Assembly of the UNC Association of Student Governments passed a resolution Saturday calling for the investigation. The resolution says the allegations are in a letter sent to UNC system board member from the ECU Board of Trustees. It says the letter claims that the two members encouraged an ECU student to run for student body president. It says the offer would violate UNC system policy.
