The silence is deafening. In the case of UNC Wilmington Chancellor Gary Miller, it is becoming clear the folks who are in a position to give him a vote of confidence have no intention of doing that.
Our news team has unraveled part of the mystery surrounding the chancellor's recent job search. But even Miller himself isn't talking about why he's looking to jump ship less than three years into his administration.
When our folks asked the UNC System President Thomas Ross if he had a position on the potential departure, a spokesperson for his office responded by calling the situation a personnel issue.
The governor says he doesn't have an opinion on the matter. And the UNCW Board of Trustees says the process should play out as well.
So it appears there will be a change at the top sooner rather than later. But at what cost?
It appears Miller's opponents wanted this to end quietly and without any fuss. But that didn't happen. The community is divided. Miller has his supporters. And those supporters have pocketbooks.
One thing is clear, the reputations of the university and Gary Miller are not being enhanced by any of this. And I think that is unfortunate.
