Winthrop Board of Trustees Revises Its Bylaws

ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – The Winthrop University Board of Trustees voted to revise its bylaws at the June 25 meeting.   

Board Chair Glenn McCall said boards occasionally need to conduct comprehensive bylaws review, and this review was undertaken to determine whether any articles should be eliminated, updated or revised or any new articles added. Read the full resolution here

An ad hoc bylaws committee of trustees Ed Driggers, Tim Hopkins, Robby Sisco and Kathy Bigham, under the direction of trustee Julie Fowler, completed the study and shared recommendations with the full board before the vote.   

The most substantive changes to the bylaws were to:   

* Reduce the number of committees from six to four--Finance; Facilities and Planning; External Affairs; and Academics, Student Affairs and Enrollment--and to define the duties of each committee. Trustees will serve two-year terms on each committee. 

* Reaffirm expectations for board meeting attendance. 

* Elect officers for two-year terms. Members may be eligible for re-election for no more than two additional consecutive terms, for a total of six years. 

* Clarify language about faculty and student liaisons to the board, plus add a staff liaison.
