Concord College Notes: In general, the intent of Senate Bill 653 and 703 is to diversify and expand the economy of the state, increase the competitiveness of the state’s workforce and the availability of professional expertise by increasing the number of college degrees produced to the level of the national average and significantly improve the level of adult functional literacy.

Effective July 1, 2001, an institutional board of governors was established as required by SB 653 and 703. The board of governors powers and duties generally include: determining controlling supervisions and managing the financial, business and education policies and affairs of Concord, developing a master plan, demonstrating how the master plan will be used, developing goals and missions, and other items as directed by the legislation.

The board of governors is comprised of 12 people including: 9 members appointed by the governor, a full-time member of the faculty, a member of the student body and a member of Concord’s classified employees.

Members of Concord’s interim governing board are: James M. Brown, Beckley, W.Va.; Daniel C. Dunmyer, Princeton, W.Va.; James L. Miller, Princeton, W.Va.; R. T. “Ted” Rogers, Hinton, W.Va.; Margaret Sayre, Beckley, W.Va.; J. Franklin Long, Bluefield, W.Va.; Wayne Meisel, Princeton, N.J.; and Eugene V. Fife, Charlottesville, Va.
