University of Texas System Regent Wallace Hall says the chairman's call for him to resign is a shameful ambush in a letter that could raise tensions on the board.
The chairman of the University of Texas System Board of Regents urged embattled Regent Wallace Hall to resign Thursday, saying his efforts to oust the president of the Austin campus and the criminal and legislative investigations that resulted have harmed the board.
Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday gave University of Texas regents pause on raising tuition for in-state students ahead of discussions that could have bumped the average semester cost at the flagship Austin campus past $5,000.
The University of Texas System Board of Regents on Monday selected a former president of the University of Alabama and Texas Tech University as its finalist to lead the newly created University of Texas Rio Grande Valley on Monday.
Board Chairman Paul Foster said regents don't want to pass costs on to students.
Foster also said he will no longer call for the resignation of board member Wallace Hall, who is facing legislative and criminal investigations over his efforts the last two years to try to force Powers out of the Austin campus.
