Away all weekend and offline, but came home to this breaking news: the 
Executive Committee of the University of Illinois Trustees is meeting, 
right now (Monday, 2:30 pm), to discuss the following:

In closed session, the Executive Committee will consider University 
employment or appointment-related matters, and pending, probable or 
imminent litigation against, affecting, or on behalf of the University.

I have no idea if this meeting had been previously scheduled or not. And 
I have no idea if this is in reference to Steven Salaita’s case. You’ll 
recall that Wise or some other administrator had said that the Trustees 
weren’t scheduled to meet until September, when they would have been 
expected to vote on Salaita’s appointment. This would suggest this 
meeting (which, it should be pointed out, is of the Executive Committee 
rather than the full Board) is an emergency meeting to consider the 
Salaita affair, but again, I can’t know for sure.
