Board of Trustees Meeting Update

February 26, 2013

Dear Staff and Faculty,

Last weekend, the Board of Trustees had a very productive meeting. In an effort to close the loop on their meeting, I would like to give you a brief update.

There were several presentations given by the president's cabinet and me. Among many things, we gave the board updates on our Year of Planning, new activities in the Career Center and the upcoming Slocum renovations, which will be shared with the campus community at our next faculty and staff meetings.

The board also approved several key items, which include:

  1. The 2013-2014 budget that includes next year's tuition and fees
  2. My tenure recommendations for Megan Anderson, Geology; Steven Hayward, English; Miro Kummel, Environmental Science; and Jane Murphy, History
  3. Honorary degrees
  4. Emerita Status to Laurel Watkins

Currently, the board is finalizing bylaw changes, and will be heavily engaged in the selection of their next chairperson. In the coming weeks, the minutes of the board meeting will be posted at If there are any questions, please let me know.

Best regards,
