IU Board of Trustees to hold an executive session meeting May 14


The IU Board of Trustees will hold a previously unscheduled executive session meeting 9 a.m. May 14, according to a press release. Executive sessions permit members of the board or invited participants only.  

The previously unscheduled meeting will be held online and will follow the Open Door Law Sec. 5-14-1.5-6.1(b)(2)(B) policy, according to the release. Such law states the meeting could be held to discuss a pending litigation or a litigation that has been threatened in writing.  

“The ‘litigation’ includes any judicial action or administrative law proceeding under federal or state law,” the law states. 

According to IDS coverage, the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana filed a lawsuit May 3 against the board and President Pamela Whitten to challenge campus bans for three plaintiffs who were arrested during the pro-Palestine campus protests April 25 and April 27.  

Usually, board meetings are scheduled three years in advance, but can be changed to accommodate unexpected complications. The next scheduled meeting is June 13-14 at IU Bloomington, which will be open to the public.
