Members of the University of North Carolina system’s Board of Governors heard presentations Wednesday and Thursday from centers and institutes across the system as they consider possible cuts. 

Representatives from each center or institute answered questions about their purpose, finances and campus impact. This review is the third phase of a process ordered by the General Assembly earlier this year, and it has stirred controversy. Some assert that this is a political move designed to target particular institutions, while others say that it is a system-wide, non-partisan activity. 

Host Frank Stasio talks to WUNC reporter Jeff Tiberii who has been following the story.

Anita Rao is an award-winning journalist and the host and creator of "Embodied," a live, weekly radio show and seasonal podcast about sex, relationships & health. She's also the managing editor of WUNC's on-demand content.
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
