The UNC Board of Governors is deeply divided over how to elect a new leader.
Some board members have called for the resignation of chair John Fennebresque after he called an emergency closed-door meeting to interview a candidate.
Emails reveal several board members accused Fennebresque of botching the hiring process which started after President Tom Ross was forced to resign earlier this year.
The division represents a split within the Republican members of the board.
Host Frank Stasio talks with WUNC reporter Dave DeWitt about the political divide and candidates for the UNC system president position.
