NACOGDOCHES, Texas (KTRE) - The Stephen F. Austin State University Board of Regents met Sunday for a special meeting to address concerns with the university president. The meeting opened to the public at 3 p.m. and left for an executive session around 3:30 p.m. They came back to the open session after a five-hour deliberation.

Karen Gantt addressed the live audience breaking down their discussion into three categories. These categories were determined based on listening sessions Gantt and Scott Gordon attended this past week where discussions were made regarding complaints of the faculty and staff. The concerns expressed were an unapproachable and not accessible Board of Regents, Scott Gordon’s presidential position, and an overall frustration of understanding the budget.

Not all members of the Board of Regents were present at the meeting. Gantt said the board of regents will have further discussions very soon.
