The Central Michigan University Board of Trustees will meet virtually in a special formal session at 11:00 a.m. Friday, March 15. The trustees will discuss and make decisions regarding the process to identify and select the next president of CMU. 

Trustees will set the size of the presidential search advisory committee, voting on whether to add one more member to the group and bring the final committee membership to no more than 20 individuals. The agenda also includes a vote to approve the committee membership. 

The Board of Trustees will also approve a charge for the search advisory committee and establish appropriate procedures for the search. 

Adoption of a confidentiality agreement for search advisory committee members and an affirmative action statement regarding the presidential search process also will be considered, along with other next steps in the process. 

The agenda for the special session is available on the Board of Trustees Agendas and Minutes webpage. Board of Trustees meetings are open to the university community and members of the public. Friday’s virtual meeting will be available to view via WebEx
