The OU Board of Regents is meeting today and tomorrow. The board is discussing changes in OU’s conflict-of-interest policies and creating search committees for various dean positions.
There will also be a closed executive meeting in which the regents will discuss a number of lawsuits pending against the university. This includes former College of International Studies Dean Suzette Grillot’s lawsuit against the university, which alleges wage discrimination and a first amendment violation.
In the secret session, the regents will also discuss a suit from former OU employee Levi Hilliard, who alleges former OU Vice President Tripp Hall sexually assaulted him.
The regents will also talk about creating a conflict-of-interest office on the Norman campus and at the Health Sciences Center in an effort to make the policy more consistent across campuses.
The regents are also voting on three different search committees for the Dean of Libraries, Dean of the Honors College and the Dean of Professional and Continuing Studies.
