The SIU Board of Trustees will hold a special meeting later this week to talk about placing the system's president on leave and appointing an acting president.

The meeting is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday at Evergreen Hall on the SIU-Edwardsville campus.

Friday's special meeting of the SIU Board of Trustees Executive Committee was cancelled, and at least one Trustee is now calling for an outside investigation of President Randy Dunn and an emergency meeting of the full board.
