Statement by President pro tem Ron Gray on UA Law School Issue

Statement at the conclusion of the Board of Trustees meeting June 7, 2019 By Ronald Gray, President pro tem of the Board

I will close with a comment related to the Law School resolution. I would like to thank the Board for their careful consideration of this issue. Our Legal Committee has been working this for quite a while with Chancellor St. John, President Bell, and their staffs.

While our Board’s responsibilities are broad and decisions are frequently complex, this decision was not difficult or complex. This decision is clearly the right one and is in the best interest of The University of Alabama, this System, and this Board of Trustees.

It is one of our top priorities as a Board to protect the integrity of these great institutions and we will continue to do so with every decision we make now and in the future.
