For months the administration of the University of Regina has been under a cloud of controversy. The school will hold a special meeting on Friday where it's possible it may take a vote of non-confidence in the president's leadership. The CBC iTeam's Geoff Leo has more on how we got here.

For months University of Regina administration has been dealing with several controversies and Friday afternoon it may all be coming to a head. 

At 2 p.m. the University Council, which is made up of faculty members, as well as some administrators and students, will hold a special meeting to discuss whether they have confidence in how President Vianne Timmons has been running the school.

Any decision they make would not be binding, but it could be influential. 

Faculty has complained in the past that Timmons was not being transparent in her job.
