Board of Trustees: Meeting Notebook


Provost Michael Gealt speaks to the Board of Trustees April 30 in the President's Conference Room. 

On Thursday morning, the Central Michigan University Board of Trustees met to discuss the importance of continuing to improve Global Campus, as competitors are catching up to CMU's progress. 

A motion was passed to create a committee that compares Global Campus to competitive schools and identifies where changes and improvements need to be made. The report will be delivered Nov. 15. 

Executive Director of Institutional Research Robert Roe presented on how CMU compares to peer institutions. Research revealed that CMU is most similar to Ball State University, Bowling Green State University, Eastern Michigan University and others. Findings were based on total faculty and staff, undergraduate enrollment and previous peer status. 

Least similar to CMU was Appalachian State University, Boise State University, Georgia Southern University and others. 

Psychology faculty Sharon B. Johnson, Director of University Events Robert Ebner, Political Science faculty Delbert Ringquist and Director of Field Services Edith Wirtshafter were granted Emeritus Rank. This is given to CMU faculty that has reached full professorial status before retirement.
