March 2, 2018 – Last month, University of New Mexico Regent Alex Romero announced his resignation the day after he publicly voiced concerns about power imbalances and communication problems within the seven-member Board of Regents.

Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists examine the discord surrounding Regents of the state’s two largest universities.
