UT Community Must "Re-establish Some Decorum"

A fraught week culminated in a relatively collegial meeting of the University of Texas System Board of Regents on Thursday, after which Chairman Paul Foster said it was time for the board and extended UT community to "re-establish some decorum."

Less than a week before the meeting, news broke that UT System Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa had asked University of Texas at Austin President Bill Powers to agree to step down at the end of October or face termination at Thursday's board meeting. Powers countered with an offer to resign in June after the upcoming legislative session.
