Faculty representatives to the State Board for Community Colleges, local community college boards, and boards of visitors; student representatives to boards of visitors. Requires the State Board for Community Colleges, local community college boards, and boards of visitors of any four-year public institution of higher education to appoint one or more nonvoting, advisory faculty representatives to their respective boards. Current law permits, but does not require, such appointments. The bill removes the option for local community college boards and boards of visitors to choose faculty representatives from individuals elected by the institution's faculty. The bill further requires boards of visitors to choose nonvoting, advisory student representatives from individuals elected by the institution's student government. Amends § 23-9.2:4.1, § 23-9.2:5, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
