PUBLIC COMMENT DEADLINE TOMORROW at 4:30 – Fwd: NEIU Board of Trustees Meeting – June 12, 2014

Dear UPI Members:

Next week, I hope everyone will make an extra effort to be at the Board of Trustees Meeting on Thursday, June 12 at 1:00. See details below. And note that anyone who would like to make a public comment has until 4:30 TOMORROW, Friday 6/6.

It’s easy to email and get on the agenda, and I think asking questions–as well as giving answers–could be a very good way to use the 2 minutes you are given.

Please try to make this and continue to meet the summer challenge of staying plugged in while negotiations are on.

In solidarity,


The next meeting of the Northeastern Illinois University Board of Trustees will be held on Thursday, June 12, 2014, in the Golden Eagles Room, located at 5500 N. St. Louis Ave.

The committee meetings will begin at 1:00 p.m. and board meeting at 2:00 p.m.
Board meeting materials, calendars and additional information are available online. To access the site, go to the NEIU website, click About NEIU and Board of Trustees.

Those who wish to address the board during the public comment segment of the board meeting must submit a written request at least five business days prior to the meeting to Mimi Crespo at, by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, June 6. The request shall include the name and contact information of the person wishing to speak with a summary of the presentation. The President and Chair of the Board shall review and approve each request. Approved speakers will be permitted two minutes per presentation.

All members of the University community are welcome to attend.

Thank you.
