The Southeast Missouri State University Board of Regents will consider the annual audits from Rubin Brown for the year ending June 30, 2019, when the Board meets at 9 a.m. Dec. 13 in the Board of Regents Room in Academic Hall.

Rubin Brown representatives will present the annual financial report, the Single Audit Report on the Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards, the Systems Facilities Financial Report and the Report on NCAA Independent Auditor’s Report on Agreed Upon Procedures.

The Regents also will consider: a special course fee that would take effect with the spring 2020 semester to be added to a graduate level nursing practicum; appointing Pamela Sander to a three-year term as a University representative on the Show Me Center Board of Managers; and conferring degrees for summer and fall 2019 candidates for graduation.

The Board will hear several reports including: the University President’s Report from Southeast President Carlos Vargas; a student presentation from William Harris, a graduate level nursing student; a report on Student Government from Student Government President Matthew Rolwing, a report on Faculty Senate from Faculty Senate Chair Nic Wilkins; and a progress report on contracts and facilities management projects and an FY20 operating budget to actual report, both from Kathy Mangels, vice president for finance and administration. The Board also will hear a report on an integrated energy master plan from a Bernhard representative.

The Regents will consider a motion to go into a closed session for appropriate considerations related to litigation; and hiring, firing, disciplining or promotion of personnel.

When the open session reconvenes, the Regents will announce actions taken during the closed session. The final item on the agenda will be consideration of a motion to adjourn.
