Last Wednesday, Oct. 17, the College’s board of trustees had a special interim meeting to discuss some important matters happening currently at the College.
President R. Barbara Gitenstein and board members discussed, via teleconference, faculty and staff actions including sabbaticals, resignations and most importantly, the appointment of John Donohue, the new vice president for College Advancement.
According to Gitenstein, this meeting did not follow their normal schedule. Typically, the board meets four times a year, and although they had already met once earlier in the month, this meeting was necessary to take care of these matters.
The sabbaticals would typically be approved at the next meeting, but formalizing them now also gave the board the opportunity to officially approve the contract of Donohue. Donohue will be starting at the College on Monday, Oct. 22.
Gitenstein announced that the next board of trustees meeting will take place on Dec. 14, with the location and time to be announced at a later date.
