January 22, 2015: Before the Meeting

In the past, the boardroom has had reserved seating for constituent leaders and the press at tables across the front, with the senior administrators at a separate row of tables down the side. Tonight, the front tables have been removed, and there are quite a few more open seats than usual. The administrators still have their seats – but not the Student Leadership Council or the faculty associations.┬áThere is a tape barrier separating the public seating from the BOT seating, in addition to a fairly wide gap.

Live blogging will begin shortly.
