Decisions of the Board Part Two

Date: May 23, 2024

At the May Board meeting, one of the busiest committees of the Board of Trustees is the Academic Affairs Committee. They are responsible for voting the degree recipients for Commencement 2024. So, the list of names needs to be approved by the Board of Trustees. Then we had the sabbaticals to approve for Dr. Mitzi Budde, Dr. Robert Heaney, and Dr. Rode Molla. We returned to Dr. Budde with the decision to recognize her exemplary record of service to VTS that on January 1, 2025 with total 33 years, with the status of Emerita.

Perhaps the most significant motion approved in this section of the Board meeting was the approval of the 2024 draft of the Faculty Handbook. This has been several years in process. The Faculty approved the text just days before the Board meeting. It was good to see this text approved.
