Trustees to be sworn in before May 30 board meeting

May 29, 2001

KALAMAZOO -- Four new members of the Western Michigan University Board of Trustees will be sworn in just in time to tackle the issues of room-and-board and tuition rates for 2001-02 when the board meets Wednesday, May 30.

Meeting at 3:15 p.m. in the Connable Board Room in the Bernhard Center, the board will consider fall 2001 tuition, room and board and parking fees.

It is expected that trustees will table resolutions regarding tuition and room-and-board rates until the board's June 22nd meeting. The move is a traditional way for the board to allow time for public comment on the issues before a final vote is taken.

In addition, the board will consider personnel reports. They also will hear a report detailing gifts and grants awarded to the University during the months of January through April.

Prior to the meeting, four new members of the board, all appointed recently by Gov. John Engler, will be sworn in by U.S. District Court Judge Richard A. Enslen. The ceremony will begin at 12:30 p.m. in the President's Dining Room in the Bernhard Center. The new members are Vernice Anthony of Detroit, Peter L. Aseritis of Williamsburg, Sarah DeNooyer of Kalamazoo and Dan Pero of Dimondale.

Board committee meetings will also precede the full board meeting. They will be held in Room 204 of the Bernhard Center at the following times: Academic and Student Affairs Committee at 1:30 p.m. and Budget and Finance Committee at 1:45 p.m. All meetings are open to the public.
