Presidential position description tops trustees' agenda

Jan. 22, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- The job description for Western Michigan University's presidency and the qualities sought in the person who fills that job will be presented for approval by the University's trustees when they meet at 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 24, in the Connable Board Room of the Bernhard Center.

The presidential position specification was reviewed by the University's Presidential Search Advisory Committee when it met earlier this month to begin the search process. The committee was established by the board at its Dec. 13 meeting.

During the Jan. 24 meeting, trustees also are expected to hold their annual election of officers, hear gift, grant and personnel reports, and consider recommendations to approve departmental name changes, a lease agreement and the appointment of an external auditor.

The meeting of the full board of trustees will be preceded by meetings of the board's two standing committees in Room 204 of the Bernhard Center. The Budget and Finance Committee will meet at 10 a.m. and the Academic and Student Affairs Committee is slated to begin at 10:30 a.m.
