I don’t usually look at the “EMU Today” page, but I did this morning and I saw this interesting little announcement:
BOARD OF REGENTS TO HOLD SPECIAL BOARD MEETING: The EMU Board of Regents will hold a special board meeting today, Apr. 9, at 3 p.m. in room 201, Welch Hall. The agenda for the meeting is as follows:
- Call to Order
- Roll Call Attendance
- Chairman’s Comments
- Section 1: Recommendation to appoint an Interim President
- Section 2: Recommendation to establish a Presidential Search Committee and a Presidential Search Advisory Committee
There has been some conversation here and I’ve chatted with others lately about when we’re likely to welcome a new president to EMU. As we discussed earlier, there was a little confusion (at least for me there was) about the BoR’s plans for when they want to get a new president in place because pretty much everyone I’ve talked with agrees that getting a new president by the start of the 2015/16 school year (that is, this fall) would be pretty much impossible. So maybe this meeting is going to clarify that.
