On Thursday, Chair of the East Carolina University Board of Trustees Vern Davenport sent an email to Pirate Nationabout Interim Chancellor Dan Gerlach’s investigation.

Davenport said the ECU BOT supports Interim UNC President Bill Roper’s decision to conduct the investigation into Gerlach’s actions.

“At its conclusion, we want there to be no question unanswered, and we want there to be complete confidence in the process and the outcome. We owe that to our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and to Dan,” Davenport said in the email.
