Board of Trustees Meeting Agenda: October 9 to 11, 2019

October 2, 2019

Dear Campus Community:

The Gallaudet University Board of Trustees will meet on campus from Wednesday, October 9 to Friday, October 11, 2019. The theme of our meetings will be “Planning for Transformation.”

The Board regrets the inadvertent overlap of our Fall 2019 meeting with Yom Kippur, which ends at sunset on October 9, and has made schedule changes so those who observe the holiday can attend open meetings and events with our Trustees. 

The Board will hold a closed session with members of President Cordano’s Executive Team on the long-term strategic plan -- The Gallaudet Promise: Excellence in Learning and Discovery -- and will review the community input received since President Cordano’s Welcome Home address on September 18. The Board will also hold executive sessions to review President Cordano’s annual performance and to progress toward restructuring its committees.

The Board is excited about meeting members of the University Council and students in Dr. Fouad Moussa’s investment class during Friday’s Business Meeting and at the luncheon that will follow.

An update will be distributed next week that will include meeting agendas, minutes, and other documents.
