CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — The Latest on plans for a new place to put a toppled confederate statue at the University of North Carolina (all times local):

10:55 a.m.

The trustees of North Carolina's flagship university have approved a proposal to construct a new building to house a toppled Confederate monument.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill trustees overwhelmingly approved the plan Monday, though at least one member voted no.

The proposal now goes to the Board of Governors that oversees the statewide university system. They're expected to take it up at a meeting Dec. 14.

Chancellor Carol Folt, who presented the plan, stressed that she would have preferred to move the statue completely off campus but that option would likely have conflicted with a state law governing Confederate statues and other monuments.

Instead, the statue will be housed in a new building south of the university's hospital. That area is far removed from the main quad where the statue previously stood.

The statue of an anonymous soldier is known as "Silent Sam" and was erected on a main campus quad in 1913.

The leaders of North Carolina's flagship university are proposing a new $5 million building on campus to house a toppled Confederate monument.

The plan presented by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Chancellor Carol Folt was scheduled for a vote Monday at a meeting of the campus trustees. The separate Board of Governors that oversees the statewide university system will have final say over the plan. The statewide board meets in December.

Folt proposed a site south of the university's hospital and west of its basketball stadium to build a new history and education center that would house the statue that was torn down by protesters in August. Folt said the new building in the Odum Village area of campus would cost about $5 million.

Folt said the on-campus location meets strict criteria under state law governing Confederate monuments and other objects of remembrance.

Leaders of North Carolina's flagship university are meeting to decide the fate of a Confederate monument torn down by protesters.

The chancellor and trustees of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill were finalizing a plan Monday for the century-old bronze statue known as "Silent Sam." They didn't immediately release details, and went into closed session to discuss it. They were scheduled to reopen their meeting later in the morning.

The separate Board of Governors, which oversees the statewide university system, will have final say over where to put the statue, which has been stored at an undisclosed location since it was toppled in August.

The statue of an anonymous soldier was erected on a main campus quad in 1913. Demonstrators called it a racist symbol.
