Board of Trustees appoints new members

By Ryan Shelton

The U’s Board of Trustees appointed two new members at the end of Spring Semester.

The Associated Students of the University of Utah President Patrick Reimherr and Alumni Association Board of Directors President Michele Mattsson have begun serving on the board. Each year, the new ASUU president and Alumni Association’s board president are appointed to the board.

The Board of Trustees, the U’s top governing body, is composed of eight members appointed by the governor, in addition to the rotating positions.

Reimherr, a senior in political science and economics, attended his first Trustees meeting in May and said he plans to push the student agenda at the board’s monthly meetings.

“My personal goal is to be a good steward for the student body,” Reimherr said. “My job is to protect their interests.”

Reimherr’s one-year term with the Trustees will end in May 2009.

Mattsson, a two-time U graduate, has served on the Alumni Association’s Board of Directors for three years and was voted the board’s new president in May.

She said she hopes to use her position with the Trustees to further improve alumni relations.

“One of the primary responsibilities of the Board of Trustees is alumni relations,” she said. “My primary goal is to increase alumni involvement and membership not just in Utah, but nationwide.”

Her three-year term with the Trustees will end in June 2011.

The board, which normally meets the second Monday of each month, will not meet in July, but will continue with scheduled meetings in August.
