TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—The Trustee Nominating Committee of the Florida Board of Governors is seeking candidates for an appointment to the Board of Trustees at New College in Sarasota, while the deadline for applications to fill a vacancy on the Florida A&M University’s Board of Trustees was extended to Wednesday.
Applicants do not need to live in the immediate area of an Florida public university to serve in this capacity, and there are sometimes members on university Boards of Trustees from other states.
The deadline for applications with the New College vacancy is April 27 at 5 p.m.
The deadline to apply for the FAMU seat is Wednesday at 5 p.m.
Each one of the 11 public institutions in the State University System has a 13-member Board of Trustees responsible for cost-effective policy, and for implementing and maintaining high-quality education programs consistent with the university’s mission. Each university’s Board of Trustees also develop processes to meet state policy, budgeting and education standards.
The term of service for the seat on the New College Board of Trustees is through Jan. 6, 2013, and the term of service for the seat on the Florida A&M University Board of Trustees is through Jan. 6, 2015. Both seats will finish the balance of respective five-year terms for seats that were recently vacated.
“The Board of Governors is looking for individuals to serve as university trustees who are interested not just in higher education but in taking our universities to a level of national excellence that elevates both institution and the goals of the State University System,” said Morteza “Mori” Hosseini of Daytona Beach, Chair of the Trustee Nominating Committee of the Florida Board of Governors.
Individuals interested in this public service must complete an application. For more information, and the application: http://www.flbog.edu/aboutsus/ubt.php.
Applications for seats appointed by the Board of Governors should be mailed to the address on the application for Board of Governors, and not sent to a university. The appointments made by the Florida Board of Governors are separate from appointments that are also made to university Boards of Trustees by the Governor of Florida.
