The Board of Trustees welcomes public comment. Members of the public have two options for providing comment to the Board of Trustees:

  1. A public comment opportunity will be provided before the Board votes on each action item listed on agendas of the full Board. A general public comment period may also provided. Members of the public must sign up to provide comment. Commenters may register in advance of the meeting by emailing or may register at the meeting itself. Preference will be given to those who sign up in advance. When registering to provide comment, you will be asked to provide your name, your affiliation to the university, your email address, and the subject of your comments. 
  2. Individuals who wish to provide written comment related to a specific item on agendas of the full Board may do so by emailing; delivering materials to the Board Office; or mailing materials to the Board Office. Written material must be received at least two business days in advance of the meeting at which the agenda topic is scheduled. Materials should be no more than three pages in length. Please note that documents provided to the Board may be subject to disclosure under Public Records Law. The Chair and Board Secretary will determine whether and, if so, when, submitted material is appropriate for dissemination to trustees and posting on the Board’s website based on relevant Board actions. Written comments submitted to the Board not directed to a specific agenda item will be handled as general correspondence. The Board Chair will direct the distribution and response to these comments.
