The Florida Board of Governors (BOG) is in Gainesville for a two-day meeting.
Gov. Rick Scott announced the appointments last week. All can begin serving right away, although they need Senate confirmation.
Agenda items for the full board meeting on Thursday include chairman Dean Colson’s state of the system address.
Members will get an update from Florida State University President Eric Barron about FSU’s animation and digital arts program in West Palm Beach. The program was thrown into limbo when partner Digital Domain filed for bankruptcy.
The board will also fill vacancies on the Board of Trustees at nine universities.
