At the annual Board of Trustees meeting, members gathered to mull over important decisions affecting the future of Linfield.

The 37-member Board met on Feb. 18th through the 20th on both the Linfield Portland campus for a brief time and on the McMinnville campus.

The meetings took place in Riley 201 as well as TJ Day hall in McMinnville.

The majority of discussion revolved around approving the budget for the year and approving faculty for promotions or sabbatical.

Sophomore Ehren Cahill, a member of the Board as well as ASLC Vice President, said, “For the most part it was a really successful meeting.”

He also said the college was “moving forward with its strategic plan,” part of which includes a new science building.

It has been a positive year overall but improvements in donations will be needed.

The Budget is expected to be approved in a few weeks.
