The Board held its regular committee meetings Wednesday and will be presented with reports from each on Thursday. Those committees include Finance and Infrastructure, Innovation and Impact, External Relations, and University Affairs.
At the start of this month, UNC announced it received its second largest single grant in the sum of $180 million for the MEASURE project. The U.S. Agency for International Development presented the grant to the Carolina Population Center for MEASURE, which stands for Monitoring and Evaluation to Assess and Use Results Evaluation project.
The project has brought in nearly $600 million in all since its inception in 1997.
The Board will also hear about UNC’s Galapagos Lab and Science Center and The Honors Study Abroad Program.
UNC’s Board of Trustees meets at the Carolina Inn Thursday beginning at 8:00 a.m.
