LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Eastern Oregon University’s Board of Trustees will hold its next regular meeting on campus at 1 p.m. Thursday, June 4 in Inlow Hall, Room 201.

The first order of business for the EOU board will be to consider recommendations to make to the State Board of Higher Education regarding a proposed tuition increase.

The board will also consider the adoption of several new policy statements including on ethics and conflicts of interest, and a resolution on shared governance.

Also on the agenda for the board to assess is the approval of charters for two of its committees: the Academic and Student Affairs Committee, and the Finance and Administration Committee.

Other items for discussion include the transition of EOU’s presidency to Tom Insko, and the transition of governance from the State Board of Higher Education to the EOU board.

The meeting will begin with a public comment period and reports from EOU Faculty Senate, University Council and ASEOU representatives, as well as Jay Kenton, interim president.

Kenton will later give an update on progress toward satisfying statewide conditions for EOU’s board, and Sarah Witte, interim provost, will talk about the university’s new programs, achievement compact and mission alignment.

Prior to the full board meeting, committees on Academic and Student Affairs and Finance and Administration will convene from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
