The Board of Trustees meets five times during the academic year: in September, November, January, March, and May. 

For the academic year 2023-24, materials for inclusion in the reports to the Board of Trustees are due to the Office of the Dean of the Faculty on the following dates: 

  • September 08, 2023
  • November 03, 2023

Neither individual academic units nor the university may publicize the fact of any of these major personnel actions prior to Board approval.  Letters memorializing these actions will be placed in the personnel files of those affected in the days following the Board meeting.
