On January 13th, two members of the Board of Trustees Phil Lewis and Robbie Moore met with an East Carolina University student to bribe the student to run for Student Body President. A transcript of their conversation was recently released by the UNC System. This meeting violates the ethical duty of trustees because:

1.      The two Trustees met with a student to encourage the student to run for Student Body President. They offered money, campaign materials, professional campaign services, connections to other Trustees, and critical student information that may be of use to the student’s potential campaign, with the condition that the source of the contribution would not be disclosed.

2.      The two Trustees expressed that they voted for a $50 increase in the mandatory Athletics fee “just to punish” the current Student Body President for not voting for their chosen candidate for Chair of the Board of Trustees. This shows that as a result of the President clearly advocating for the needs and best interest of the students at East Carolina University, he was subjected to a personal vendetta by the trustees.

3.      The two Trustees intended that the student join them, if elected, and other Trustees in what they described as a seven-member majority of the Board of Trustees to advance their own objectives, including electing a new Chair.

4.      The two Trustees offered their support in opposition of future student fee increases if the student were elected and agreed to advance their objectives, including electing a new Chair.

This represents a clear violation of the ethical standards of Board of Trustees members. It is wrong for any university official to put their personal objectives ahead of the best interests of students. This behavior is unjust and deserves appropriate consideration and we demand that the Board of Governors remove Phil Lewis and Robbie Moore from the ECU Board of Trustees.
