The team learned Wednesday that the UNM Board of Regents violated the Open Meetings Act when they decided to cut four sports programs in July.

In a letter to the regents, Attorney General Hector Balderas said the regents failed to list items on its agenda and engaged in a "rolling quorum", or discussed what to do with the programs before the meeting.

In the letter, the AG says the Board of Regents should hold another meeting within 15 days to correct the violation.

UNM released a statement saying the university is committed to transparency and accountability. The university is reviewing the AG's letter and plans to respond accordingly.
