KALAMAZOO--Meeting Friday, July 22, the Western Michigan University Board of Trustees is set to consider adoption of a formal evaluation process by which it will undertake its annual evaluation of the University president. The board's formal public session that day is set for 10:45 a.m. in Rooms 157-159 of the Bernhard Center.

The full board will consider a recommendation to approve a process that was developed by a three-member committee created through a board resolution that was adopted at the February meeting. The committee's recommendation will set the parameters and process for an evaluation of WMU President John M. Dunn, who is now in his fourth year as president. That evaluation is expected to take place this fall.

Trustees also will consider a recommendation that the University purchase the University Bookstore, a privately owned business and property located at 2529 W. Michigan Ave. and surrounded by the WMU campus.

In addition, trustees will receive and be asked to sign off on reports covering personnel moves, receipt of gifts and grants, and a decision to withdraw from the Kalamazoo County Health Plan, a local nonprofit organization the University has been part of for a decade.
