month. The motion passed unanimously. MOTION 11-5-87 Craig Cole moved,
seconded by Larry Taylor that the Board of Trustees of Western Washington
University appoint a pre-search subcommittee of the Board consisting of
Martha Choe, chair, Larry Taylor and Gordon Sandison and that they be
delegated the responsibility of formulating the search process upon broad
consultation with the University community and the general public. The
motion passed unanimously. Chair Waldo stated that the Board also discussed
the composition of the Presidential Search Committee and while the Board
feels it is premature to reach any final decisions, and that recommendation
will come from the Pre-search Subcommittee, the Board did feel that the
Presidential Search Committee would potentially consist of 13-17 members
and would include the President of the Faculty Senate and three other
faculty members to be selected from nominations by the senate. It would
include the President of the Associated Students and one other student to
be selected from nominations by the Associated Student Board, the President
of the Alumni Association, the President of the Western Foundation, the
President of the Staff Employees Council, the president of the
Administrators Association, three trustees and two or three additional
appointments by the Board. The three trustees who will participate on the
Presidential Search Committee are Martha Choe who will continue as Chair,
Larry Taylor and Craig Cole. Interim President Albert Froderberg announced
that Peter Harris, Director of the Physical Plant has been appointed as
Acting Vice President for Business and Financial Affairs; Dr. Saundra
Taylor, Vice President and Dean of Student Affairs will continue in that
position and in addition has been appointed Vice President for University
Advancement; and Samuel Kelly, Dean of the Graduate School has been
appointed Acting Vice President for Academic Affairs; and Curtis Dalrymple
has volunteered 10 to 20 hours per week until January 1988, as Executive
Director of Development. Dr. Froderberg confirmed that Dr. John Yost will
join Western as Vice President for Academic Affairs the later part of
January 1988. Dr. Froderberg stated that he had spoken to the director of
the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges and assured him that
accreditation of the University will go on as planned. Dr. Froderberg
announced that the Higher Education Coordinating Board Master Plan is one
that Western can support in almost every way. It is a document that has
changed over the past month or two and includes changes that respond to the
concerns expressed by Trustees Waldo and Cole in public meetings. Central
issues in the Master Plan are access, admission, funding, the safe funding
formula, branch campuses and minority enrollment. Dr. Froderberg said the
Minor Capital Budget process will begin in January and he will be meeting
with vice presidents, deans and others concerning the process. Craig Cole
said that he would like to say that the people in this institution have
really rallied since the tragedy and been amazing in their compassion and
dedication and it has been very heartwarming to see the spirit of community
that exists on this campus and the dedication that people have for their
jobs and their mission and also for one another. Mr. Cole also thanked
Martha Choe and Gordon Sandison for traveling to Bryan, Texas to attend the
funeral of G. Robert Ross and thanked Gordon Sandison and Larry Taylor for
traveling to Little Rock, Arkansas to attend a Memorial Service for G.
Robert Ross and Jeanene DeLille.
