Special meeting of the Board of Regents to take place tomorrow to elect Eastern Michigan University's 23rd president

February 11, 2016

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

On behalf of the Eastern Michigan Board of Regents, it is my distinct honor to invite you to attend a special meeting of the Board of Regents that will take place tomorrow, Friday, February 12, at 1 p.m. in 201 Welch Hall for the purpose of electing Eastern Michigan University's 23rd President. The special meeting will include a single agenda item - a recommendation to elect a new University president. The meeting will include brief remarks from members of the Board of Regents.

 To further celebrate this historic occasion, a special reception will take place following the Board meeting in the Alumni Room, 342 McKenny Hall. The reception is open to the campus community and will last until 3 p.m. Those who attend will have the opportunity to greet and welcome our next president.

I hope you will join me at the special board meeting and at the reception that follows. It will be an exciting day for Eastern Michigan University.

In the event that the Board room reaches capacity for the 1 p.m. meeting, a live video and audio feed of the proceedings will take place across the hall from the Board meeting room in 205 Welch Hall.

Formal announcement of the special meeting can be found on the Board of Regents website, along with further information about appropriate protocol for the meeting. Please visit the website or contact Vicki Reaume in the Board of Regents office at 487.2410 or by email at vicki.reaume@emich.edu, if you have any questions.

I look forward to seeing you and all of our University friends and colleagues tomorrow as we celebrate this historic occasion together.

Don Loppnow
Interim President
