Ferris Board Of Trustees Take Action
A roundup of Ferris Board of Trustees meeting on July 8
BIG RAPIDS – In addition to setting tuition rates during their regular meeting Wednesday, July 8, the Ferris State University Board of Trustees also took action on a number of other items – most notably in approving Other Eligible Adult benefits to university employees.
The board’s approval, which will initially extend health benefits to eligible adult household members of non-union, non-represented employees, puts Ferris on par with other public institutions of higher education in the state. At least 11 of Michigan’s 15 public universities now offer similar benefits. The board will address the issue of an implementation date for the new policy in the fall.
