Purpose of the Meeting
Meetings of the Board of Regents assure that USU operates in the best traditions of academia. An outside Board is necessary for institutional accreditation.
The actions that will take place include the approval of minutes from the Board of Regents Meeting held August 3, 2010; acceptance of reports from working committees; approval of faculty appointments and promotions; and the awarding of master's and doctoral degrees in the biomedical sciences and public health. The Board will also hear reports from the President, USU; the Dean, School of Medicine; the Dean, Graduate School of Nursing; and the president of the Faculty Senate. These actions are necessary for the University to pursue its mission, which is to provide outstanding health care practitioners and scientists to the uniformed services.
Pursuant to Federal statute and regulations (5 U.S.C. 552b, as amended, and 41 CFR 102-3.140 through 102-3.165) and the availability of space, most of the meeting is open to the public. Seating is on a first-come basis. The closed portion of this meeting is authorized by 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(6) as the subject matter involves personal and private observations.
Interested persons may submit a written statement for consideration by the Board of Regents. Individuals submitting a written statement must submit their statement to the Designated Federal Official (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT). If such statement is not received at least 10 calendar days prior to the meeting, it may not be provided to or considered by the Board of Regents until its next open meeting. The Designated Federal Officer will review all timely submissions with the Board of Regents Chairman and ensure such submissions are provided to Board of Regents Members before the meeting. After reviewing the written comments, submitters may be invited to orally present their issues during the November 2010 meeting or at a future meeting.Start Signature
