— Fayetteville State University trustees met behind closed doors Tuesday to begin the process of selecting a new chancellor.

Chancellor T.J. Bryan submitted her resignation on Monday, amid lingering problems with university finances and troubles in the nursing department. Her four-year tenure officially ends July 23.

None of the trustees would comment publicly on what they're looking for in a new leader. But one board member told WRAL that University of North Carolina President Erskine Bowles called during the closed-door meeting to speak about what the campus needs to succeed.

Bowles declined to comment on the matter, and a spokeswoman said it's too early to begin listing qualifications for FSU's next chancellor.

The UNC Board of Governors is expected to discuss the change in leadership at the university on Thursday.

    I hear Jim Black is looking for work. Sounds like he will fit in quite well. He is able to locate thousands of dollars in bathrooms. Have you checked all the stalls on your campus?
