Board of Regents comes to VSU, long haitus over

Written By: Jordan Barela

Valdosta State University is set to host the next meeting for the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia on Oct. 14-15.

“It is a great honor to be selected to host our esteemed board, and I am truly looking forward to having them visit our beautiful campus and community,” VSU President William McKinney said in an email.

The meeting is open to the public. There are exceptions for executive sessions.

The agenda, which has not been released yet as of the deadline for publication, is set by the board office.

The last time that VSU hosted a Board of Regents meeting was in 2003.

During that meeting, former president of VSU, Ronald M. Zaccari, delivered a special presentation to the Board.

According to the minutes of the meeting, Zaccari made a presentation that explored “strategic and

master planning processes, partnerships with other institutions and agencies, enrollment trends, and

plans for [then] new construction.”

 

The last meeting after the one in 2003 that was held at VSU was in 1981. The Board of Regents was set to come in 2001, but was rescheduled after former President Hugh Bailey wanted to wait until Zaccari succeeded him.
