Trustees meet to consider finance items, tuition rates

July 5, 2001

KALAMAZOO -- The Western Michigan University Board of Trustees is expected to tackle finance issues tabled at its May 30 meeting when it meets at 12:15 p.m. Friday, July 6.

Included on the agenda are recommendations on increases for tuition, room and board, and vehicle registration rates. Those items were tabled by the board May 30 to allow time for public comment on the issues before a final vote is taken. Trustees also will be asked to approve an estimated general fund operating budget for the 2001-02 fiscal year.

In addition, the board will review personnel reports as well as reports detailing gifts and grants recently awarded to the University. They also will consider a series of lease agreements, revisions to the University's residency policies, and recommendations that WMU become part of a community health care initiative in Kalamazoo and a technology partnership in Battle Creek, Mich.

The meeting of the full board in the Bernhard Center's Connable Board Room 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 11 a.m., while the Academic and Student Affairs Committee meeting is slated for noon.
