FLORENCE---The Francis Marion University Board of Trustees will hold its quarterly meeting at 11:30 a.m. Friday, June 2, in the Stokes Administration Building Board Room.
The trustees will consider five resolutions, including one to adjust university fees and one to adjust the student activity fee, both effective for the 2006-2007 academic year.
Other resolutions to be considered include adopting a university-wide strategic plan, reinstatement of the Francis Marion College medallion for ceremonial occasions, and adopting a $41.7 million budget projection for the 2006-2007 fiscal year.
The trustees will also hear reports from their standing committees and from the university president.
Committee meetings will be held earlier in the day Friday. The Executive Affairs Committee will meet at 9 a.m. in the Stokes Board Room, followed by a 9:30 a.m. meeting of the Financial Affairs and Facilities Committee. The Academic Affairs and Accreditation Committee also will meet at 9:30 a.m. in the Provost’s Conference Room in Stokes Building. At 10:30 a.m., the Development and Alumni Committee will meet in the Stokes Board Room, while the Student Affairs and Athletics Committee meets in the Provost’s Conference Room.
Following the board meeting, the trustees will dedicate Hanson Park, located between the Cottage and Wallace House, in memory of longtime faculty member and administrator Gary Hanson who died last year. The 1.5-acre park has a garden-like atmosphere with footpaths, water pools and picnic tables where students and employees can find a quiet place for an outdoor lunch or to read and reflect. The park was designed in-house and all work was completed by FMU physical plant staff. An outdoor cookout will follow the dedication.
