Board of Trustees agenda announced
Jan 17, 2018 La Grande, Ore. — Eastern Oregon University’s Board of Trustees will convene for the first regularly scheduled meeting of 2018 on Feb. 1 in La Grande.
Agenda topics include a discussion of incorporating an Online Program Management system. University leaders have been exploring options to better support online students while extending EOU’s reach to new areas. Trustees will also review progress toward institutional goals during the Annual Strategic Plan Report.
Administrators will present an updated plan for the Rural Engagement & Vitality (REV) Institute proposed by President Tom Insko. The new unit would orchestrate internships and career-building opportunities for students that serve regional and community needs. Added coordination in this area supports rural prosperity and offers opportunities for transformational education.
The meeting begins at 8:30 a.m. in the Dixie Lund Conference Room, Inlow Hall 201, and is open to the public. Written comments to the board will be accepted within 48 hours of the meeting. View meeting materials and sign up for public comment at eou.edu/governance/board-meeting-schedule.
