Decision of the Board of Trustees
June 4, 1973
Beverly C. Moore
Beverly C. Moore was the chairman of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro Board of Trustees in 1973.
This document, dated June 4, 1973, outlines the decision of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) Board of Trustees following an appeal hearing. The board determined that UNCG Chancellor James Sharbrough Ferguson acted correctly in overturning a Student Government Association (SGA) vote to change the organization's status, but also ordered that SGA hold another hearing to reconsider evidence in the matter. On March 26, 1973, University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) Student Government Association (SGA) had voted to reclassify (removed funding and recognition from) the Neo-Black Society. The SGA decision was overturned by university administration on the basis of faulty evidence and improper procedure by SGA, resulting in an eventual legal case that led to the Neo-Black Society's reinstatement as a recognized and funded organization.
