Board of Trustees reconfigure January meeting

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — At its May meeting, the Penn State Board of Trustees approved a change to the 2016-17 board meeting calendar. The board will now convene at a retreat at University Park on Jan. 12-13, 2017.

In February 2016, the board approved the 2017 meeting dates as follows: 

  • Jan. 12-13, 2017
  • Feb. 23-24, 2017
  • May 4-5, 2017
  • July 20-21, 2017 — Penn State Harrisburg
  • Sept. 14-15, 2017
  • Nov. 9-10, 2017

At its May meeting, the board approved the use of the January 2017 meeting dates as an opportunity for professional development in a retreat setting. This approval does not prevent a public meeting of the board and/or its committees in January if necessary.  The trustees made a similar adjustment for 2016, opting for a trustee retreat in January and moving the previously scheduled March meeting to February. 

The Board of Trustees’ remaining meetings for 2016 are at University Park unless otherwise noted:

  • July 21-22 — Penn State Wilkes-Barre
  • Sept. 15-16
  • Nov. 3-4
