ADVISORY: Kent State University Board of Trustees Meeting, June 3

The Kent State University Board of Trustees will hold its next regular business meeting remotely on Wednesday, June 3, to consider the recommendations of the standing committees, proposed personnel actions and new business. All actions of the Board will be taken at this business meeting.

Due to ongoing efforts to safeguard the health and safety of the community and directives by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine to practice social distancing and limit in-person meetings, this meeting and the preceding standing committee meetings will be conducted virtually via Zoom Meetings. The meetings are being conducted electronically as permitted under Amended Substitute House Bill 197, which was signed by the governor on March 27.
On June 3, trustees will retire into executive session 8:15-10:15 a.m. to consider specific topics as provided for under Ohio’s “Sunshine Law.” Access information for the public roll call will be posted at a later time. The Board will reconvene for the business meeting at 10:30 a.m.

Meetings of the standing committees will be held as follows. These groups are recommending bodies to the full Board. No actions will be taken, and a quorum of the Board may not be present.
