All eyes may be on Bismarck tomorrow as the State Board of Higher Ed discusses allegations against Chancellor Hamid Shirvani, but one board member will be noticeably absent.

Sydney Hull, the student representative who brought the board's attention to the allegations, requested a meeting in April and was told by board President Duaine Espegard that the meeting would be scheduled for May, giving University System staff and the board enough time to investigate. The university system then announced it would hold the special meeting Thursday. The announcement was sent the same day Hull flew to South Africa for spring break.
