Trustees meet Friday in new CHHS building

Sept. 15, 2005

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's new College of Health and Human Services building will serve as the backdrop when the University's Board of Trustees gathers Friday, Sept. 16, to discuss the 2005-06 budget and a number of other finance, research and academic issues.

Trustees will begin their meeting with an 8:45 a.m. closed informal session in the new building, which is located on WMU's Oakland Drive Campus. The HHS building opened this fall and is scheduled for a Sept. 15 dedication. The formal public session for the board's meeting is scheduled to begin at about 10 a.m. in Room 4010 of the new facility, which is the Motion Analysis Laboratory.

Pending a Sept. 14 ratification vote of WMU's chapter of the American Association of University Professors, trustees are expected to act on a new three-year contract between the University and its faculty. Among other topics at the meeting will be an enrollment report, information about the upcoming accreditation visit by the Higher Learning Commission and a report on the Biosciences Research and Commercialization Center.

In addition, the board will hear reports on gifts and grants as well as consider several lease agreements and a personnel report.
