Oct. 28, 1997

KALAMAZOO -- The Western Michigan University Board of Trustees will meet at 11:15 a.m. Friday, Oct. 31, in the Connable Board Room of the Bernhard Center.

Agenda items include the presentation of a presidential position description for approval. WMU's Presidential Search Advisory Committee has been working with its consultant, Korn/Ferry International, to find a successor to Dr. Diether H. Haenicke, who is stepping down as president next year to return to the faculty.

The position description has been prepared based on information gathered in sessions with representatives of constituency groups as well as in a public session that was open to the University and local community. The description will be used in selecting candidates for the position, which currently is being advertised.

Committee meetings will precede the full board meeting in Room 204 of the Bernhard Center. Times are: Budget and Finance Committee, 10:15 a.m.; and Academic and Student Affairs Committee, 11 a.m. All meetings are open to the public.
