FMU Trustees To Meet Oct. 19
FLORENCE---The Francis Marion University Board of Trustees will meet Friday, Oct. 19, at 3 p.m. in the President’s Room of Ervin Dining Hall.
The board will hear reports of its various committees and from university president Fred Carter. The board will consider a resolution to lease Wallace Cottage to the FMU Foundation to renovate and operate the house as an alumni/faculty club and guest house for the benefit of the university. A second resolution would rename the facility the BB&T/Amelia Wallace Faculty/Alumni House. BB&T donated the bulk of the funds to renovate the facility.
A third resolution would authorize the university’s president to spend up to $50,000 biannually, in January and April for a five-year period, to support the technology priorities identified by the Faculty Information Technology Committee. The nonrecurring funds come from the sale of the Patriot Bookstore inventory to a private vendor.
