May 15, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Fall tuition, room and board rates, and vehicle registration fees are among the issues Western Michigan University trustees will tackle during their Friday, May 17, meeting.

Gathering at 11:45 a.m. in the Connable Board Room of the Bernhard Center, trustees also will consider recommendations to approve six new degree programs as well as change the names of two academic units. In addition, the board is expected to consider the appointments of two departmental chairpersons and approve tenure and promotion recommendations for a number of faculty members.

The board also will hear reports on gifts and grants received by the University during the months of March and April.

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 meeting is slated for 10 a.m., while the Academic and Student Affairs Committee will meet at 11 a.m.
