(Nov. 30, 2011) – The California State University Board of Trustees announced today the cancellation of its Special Committee meeting on Presidential Selection and Compensation originally scheduled for Monday, Dec. 5.  The special committee was set to consider a single action item of updating its policy on presidential compensation.

"We made this decision based upon our experience at the last board meeting where a large number of protestors attended, which is difficult to manage under the best of circumstances," said CSU Board Chair Herbert L. Carter.  "Our ability to guarantee the safety of crowds that we anticipate may wish to attend has been further compromised due to the damage to the entrance of our building that is still under repair.  In light of all of this, and the fact that the agenda for the special meeting included only one action item, the board made the prudent decision to cancel the meeting."

The presidential compensation policy will be considered by the board as part of its regularly scheduled January 24/25 meeting agenda.
