Board of Trustees Update - February 2014

Dear Campus Community,  

Last weekend, the Board of Trustees was on campus for its annual February meeting. There was much enthusiasm about the progress we are making as a college community. The board approved several items including:

  • The 2014-15 budget, setting tuition and fees at $46,410. For students living on the campus, the comprehensive fee will be $57,162, with a standard double room rate of $6,176 and the meal plan C rate of $4,576.
  • Tenure and promotion for four faculty members. Congratulations!
    • Pedro de Araujo, Assistant Professor of Economics and Business
    • Peggy Daugherty, Assistant Professor of Chemistry
    • Stefan Erickson, Assistant Professor of Mathematics
    • Peter Wright, Assistant Professor of Religion
  • Tenure for one faculty member: Associate Professor of Theatre and Dance Shawn Womack. Congratulations Shawn!
  • Emeritus status for retired Professor of Political Science Curtis Cook.
  • The installation of solar panels on top of Cornerstone and El Pomar Sports Center. 

In addition to the work done on the four standing committees of Audit; Governance; Investment; and Budget, Buildings and Grounds, the trustees worked with campus leaders on strategic projects. As a reminder, this year's strategic project teams are Campaign Planning; Library Renovation; Campus Master Plan/Communication Plan; and Environmental Stewardship and Innovation. 

The board heard presentations on campus safety, our newly-revised Half Block, and faculty-student research collaboration and enjoyed dinner with members of the Faculty Executive Committee. Thanks to all who helped make the board meeting a success.

Best regards, 

 

Jill
