A meeting of Morgan State University's Board of Regents planned for Thursday afternoon has been cancelled, university officials said.

The meeting had been announced on the board's web page, but the notice was later removed. The purpose of the meeting had not been made public.

Morgan was plunged into turmoil last month when the board voted 8-7 to seek a replacement for president David J. Wilson when his contract expires at the end of the academic year.

Students, faculty and alumni rallied to support Wilson. The board met later in the month and voted to draft a new, one-year contract for Wilson by the end of the month. Board chair Dallas R. Evans cast the lone vote against the new contract for Wilson.
