X Compliance   Partial Compliance   Non-Compliance

Narrative:  

Troy University is in compliance with this Comprehensive Standard.

The Bylaws of the Board of Trustees ensure appropriate removal and dismissal with a fair process from the Board of Trustees. The Bylaws (page 2) read as follows related to dismissal:

The composition of the Board and the terms of office of Board members shall be in compliance with Section 16-56-3 of the Alabama Code as amended by Act Number 97-586 of the Alabama Legislature. Failure to attend board meetings or failure to participate in board meetings in good faith may constitute grounds for the full board to request the resignation of a board member. Such an action would require a three-fourths vote of the entire board. All other state laws pertinent to the removal of public officials shall apply to the members of the Board.

No member of the Troy University Board of Trustees has been dismissed.
