Rob Doughty, president of The University of New Mexico Board of Regents, last month shepherded through a little-scrutinized plan to restructure the leadership and governance of the university’s Health Sciences Center.

As one of the plan’s architects, Doughty also kept the plan secret — from the public, the medical staff at UNM Hospital and at least two of Doughty’s fellow regents in the weeks before the March 14 vote that set the restructuring in stone.

How so consequential a plan came to be is murky.
