FAMU Alumni Seeking More Representation on Board of Trustees

By: Rattler Nation

At both the University of Florida and Florida State University, alumni have ten of the 11 appointed seats on the respective Boards of Trustees. But FAMU alumni only have three of the 11 appointed seats on their alma mater’s Board of Trustees (BOT), down from six last year.

Lt. Col. Gregory L. Clark, the newly elected president of the Florida A&M University National Alumni Association (NAA), is speaking out against that different treatment of FAMU. According to WCTV-6, Clark “says the lower number of alumni on the board does not mirror other universities in the state system.”

“We have a lot of talented graduates from FAMU,” Clark said in an interview with the TV station. “I think we should take a hard look and tap into some of the talent that is out there. All we’re asking for is a fair shot at looking at some of our graduates out there to serve on the board of trustees.”

  1. Don’t be fooled the lower BOT representation is a political move to illuminate funding and resources to FAMU. I think the FAMU alum should file a lawsuit against the BOT. FAMU has enough good legal talent at the law school to file a discrimination lawsuit against the BOT.
