RESOLUTION TO APPROVE AMENDED AND RESTATED BYLAWS OF THE WINTHROP UNIVERSITY BOARD OF TRUSTEES

WHEREAS, in the fall of 2020, Board Chair Glenn A. McCall convened an ad hoc bylaws committee to complete a comprehensive review of the Board’s bylaws in order to determine whether any provisions in the current articles should be eliminated, updated or revised as well as new articles added; and

WHEREAS, under the direction of Committee Chair, Dr. Julie Fowler, the Bylaws Committee consisting of Ed Driggers, Tim Hopkins, Robby Sisco, and Kathy Bigham, conducted such a review, solicited input from the entire Board as well as university council and the president; and

WHEREAS, the proposed amendments were presented to the Trustees for approval on June 25, 2021 and received their approval via an unanimous vote; and

WHEREAS, the bylaws of the Board of Trustees should at all times reflect the changing nature and character of the University while adequately meeting the needs of the Board; and

WHEREAS, as the new bylaws were operationalized and applied to the work of the Board and expectations of the university, it became apparent that clarity in some areas was needed; and

WHEREAS, the original bylaws committee was reconvened to review and revise the bylaws with input from the Board and university administration.

THEREFORE, LET IT BE RESOLVED that the Winthrop University Board of Trustees endorses and supports the language modifications in the attached bylaws in order to be both appropriate and consistent with the goals and policies of the Board.

Approved this 27th day of September 2022
