The UNC system's governing board will have a lot to talk about when it reconvenes Thursday after its summer break.
The recent passage of the state budget will surely be on the minds of some campus leaders.
And a Thursday workshop discussing the controversial "retreat rights" issue should be interesting as well.
In case you missed it - UNC system leaders are expected this week to curtail a policy that offers university higher-ups a tidy perk upon their retirement - full pay for up to a year to spend re-tooling to prepare to go back to teaching.
Here's a link to our coverage of that issue.
And the board may make a significant change to its health insurance policy for students.
As we reported earlier this year, health insurance offerings for students differ from campus to campus, and leaders want to standardize it to get better rates. The proposal would require all students to health insurance unless they can prove they already have it.

The board meets Thursday and Friday. It will discuss the health insurance issue at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, with a workshop on the retreat rights issue to follow at noon.
