Board of Trustees meeting report
The ASU Board of Trustees approved four resolutions at last Friday's meeting. They authorized ASU-Jonesboro to begin the process of selling land located in Poinsett County. This approval will start the lengthy process of sale which will ultimately require the governor's approval before state land can be sold. Also for ASU-Jonesboro, the trustees approved the discontinuation of the Bachelor of Science in Community and Regional Economic Development, as this program has shown declining enrollment. In other matters, the trustees approved a resolution for the ASU-Technical Center in Marked Tree to offer a licensed practical nursing program. Lastly, they approved ASU-Beebe to implement a supply fee for welding courses.

Interim dean appointed for College of Business
Dr. Len Frey, chair of the Department of Management and Marketing, was named interim dean of the College of Business on Friday. He will officially begin work in his new position Jan. 4, 2005, following the departure of Dr. Jan Duggar, who recently was appointed to a similar position at Jacksonville University in Florida.  See details on the NewsPage.

Call for authors with The Handbook of Business Ethics
Dr. Larry Salinger, criminology and sociology, welcomes academic editorial contributors to The Handbook of Business Ethics, a guide for employees, managers and corporate officers. This comprehensive project is a one-volume title edited by Dr. Salinger and is published by Golson Books Ltd. If you are interested in contributing to the handbook, it can be a notable addition to your CV or resume. There is a small honorarium paid for each article, $20 to $135, depending on article length.
