Governor appoints Coleman to boards
Gov. John Engler has appointed U-M President Mary Sue Coleman
to the state Life Sciences Corridor Board and the Michigan Economic
Development Corporation (MEDC) Corporate Board.
The life sciences board advises on and oversees initiatives, including
the development of criteria for awarding contracts and grants to
universities, institutions and individuals.
The MEDC Corporate Board authorizes and approves the annual audit
of the MEDC. The board also evaluates the performance of the corporation.
Coleman replaces B. Joseph White, the former interim president
of U-M, on the two boards. She represents universities and community
colleges on the MEDC Corporate Board, and she represents U-M on
the life sciences board.
