CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - A panel has reviewed relocating the University of North Carolina administration.

The News & Observer reports that a university Board of Governors task force began looking at a proposal to move the multi-campus public system headquarters out of Chapel Hill.

System president Margaret Spellings says there could be stressful effects of such a large undertaking and asked what advantages relocating would have. Places discussed were Raleigh, Research Triangle Park and Durham.

Several panel members were skeptical about using resources on a “branding” problem - confusion between the system and Chapel Hill campus or concern about both being in the same town.

The panel will update the full Board on the topic in November.

It’s unclear how much relocation could cost taxpayers, and if new buildings would be constructed or leased.
