Trustees meet five times each academic year. Today’s meeting is from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in Lecture Hall, Room 214 in Oscar Ritchie Hall.

Faculty Senate unanimously passed a proposal to establish a college of public health at its November meeting. Kent State will be one of only two schools in Ohio to serve the state in public health.
