OU's Black Emergency Response Team released a statement advising the OU Board of Regents to hold a transparent search process and listen to the voices of "stakeholders from all realms of campus."

BERT released the statement on Twitter Wednesday afternoon after delivering the statement to an official of the regents, according to the tweet.

The statement comes after the OU Board of Regents scheduled a special meeting Thursday night for "discussion and consideration of, and/or the designation or appointment to" the university presidency.
