The purpose of the meeting will be to receive information and consider all matters scheduled to come before the Board at that time.

 

Notice is also given that meetings of the following committees of the Board of Trustees of Alabama A&M University are scheduled to occur on June 22, 2017 at the following times on the Campus of the University in the Office of the President:

 

Audit & Investment .............................................................. 8:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m.

Since the business to be addressed and discussed in the various committee sessions may affect the overall interests of the University, in addition to Trustees who are members of the individual committees, all members of the Board of Trustees of the University are invited to attend any or all of the committee meetings. Consequently, more than a quorum of the Board may be present from time to time during such sessions. However, no action will be taken by the Board itself during such sessions. 

As always, you are invited to attend and observe the proceedings of the meetings of the Board and the committees of the Board.

Grad Student Completes 50-State Lawn Service Pledge

 

A year ago, Rodney Smith, Jr., received the Presidential Medallion from Alabama A&M University President Andrew Hugine, Jr., for the former’s establishment of a free lawn mowing service to improve the conditions of other people’s lives.  At that time he had to his credit more than 500 lawns mowed without cost to the owners.  Smith said the idea came to him as he watched an el­derly man struggling to mow his lawn in Huntsville, Ala.

 

SmithRodney.jpgNow Smith will return to Huntsville after completing his national “50 States, 50 Lawns” tour sponsored by Briggs & Stratton, the Milwaukee-based company that is the world’s largest producer of gasoline engines for outdoor power equipment.

 

The goal is to provide free lawn care to the elderly, the disabled, single moth­ers and veterans using local volunteers and providing young boys with positive role models and an emphasis on chari­table service.

The rapid growth of the organization a few years ago inspired him to pursue a master’s degree in social work at AAMU.

AAMU Student Housing Update

 

In preparation for Fall 2017, Alabama A&M University implemented a new student housing management system.  Adirondack Solutions, an interactive, user friendly system, provides an opportunity for students to apply for housing, request a specific hall/room, request a roommate based on preferences such as sleep pattern, study habits, etc.,  and communicate directly with housing personnel. Also, Adirondack provides student housing personnel with real-time updates on housing availability. 

 

The University has identified 2700 beds for new and returning students.  Students requesting housing must meet the following criteria:

 

·         Payment of applicable housing fee(s) – $250 deposit and/or $100 application fee;

·         2017-2018 FAFSA or valid payment method on file; and

·         Registered for the Fall 2017 Semester

 

Although the University has allotted 1,525 beds for incoming freshmen, and 1,175 beds for upperclassmen, housing is provided on a first-come, first-serve basis, says Karla Miller, interim director of housing at AAMU. The priority deadline for returning students to receive housing for Fall 2017 was May 5, 2017, and June 19, 2017 is the priority deadline for incoming freshmen.    While the University desires to provide students an opportunity to live on campus, assignments cannot be made in excess of the maximum beds available. 

 

Unlike previous years, Alabama A&M University will not provide temporary/short-term accommodations once maximum capacity has been reached.  When capacity is reached, students are asked to monitor Housing’s website for availability updates as vacancies will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

 

For additional information, call (256) 372-5797.
