Northern Michigan University trustees have called a meeting to discuss whether their selection of interim president David Haynes violated the state's Open Meetings Act.

The Marquette school announced last Thursday that Haynes would
take over for Les Wong, who resigned to become president of San Francisco State University in California. Wong became president of Northern Michigan in 2004.

The Upper Peninsula school's board of trustees called a meeting
for 2:30 p.m. Tuesday to see whether Haynes' appointment complied
with state law. Trustee Stephen Adamini says the board's three-member executive committee made the decision to appoint Haynes.

Haynes has held various posts at Northern Michigan for 27 years.
He's an associate professor of political science and public administration and co-director of Northern Michigan's Center for Rural Community and Economic Development.
