New members also will receive a compilation of current Northern Cyprus statutes pertaining to the Board of Trustees. The Rector will arrange briefing sessions for newly appointed Board of Trustees.
In order to facilitate the work of the Board of Trustees, the Rector appoints members to standing committees each year and appoints chairs and vice-chairs of each committee. The Rector may appoint him or herself as a member of any standing committee. The Rector of shall consult with the Board of Trustees concerning such appointments to committees.

The standing committees of the Board of Trustees are Audit and Compliance; Finance and Facilities; Academic, Student Affairs and Research; and the Health Sciences Centre (HSC). The Rector may name other standing committees with the consent of the Board of Trustees.
Each standing committee shall consist of three Board of Trustees members. One Board of Trustees must be a member of both the Finance and Facilities Committee and the HSC Committee. A quorum of a Board of Trustees’ committee consists of a majority of the appointed members of that committee.

Each standing committee shall have a designated vice-chair responsible for assisting the chair of the committee. The chair of each committee shall be responsible for preparing the agenda for the committee meetings, in consultation with the University Rector and the Chairman of the Board of Trustees. The University Rector may submit agenda items for the committee to the Chairman of the Board of Trustees and the chair of the committee. All action items for the Board of Trustees are typically first reviewed by a standing committee.
The duties and responsibilities of the HSC Committee are set forth in RPM 3.5. The duties and responsibilities of the Audit and Compliance Committee are set forth in RPM 7.3. The other standing committees’ duties and functions are determined by the Board of Trustees, and shall include at least gathering information, conferring with members of the administration, faculty, staff, student body, and public on the topics within the committee’s duties, and making recommendations for action by the Board of Trustees. The chairs of the standing committees (or vice-chairs in the absence of the chairs) shall report the committee recommendations to the Board of Trustees at its meetings. Standing committees do not constitute a quorum of the Board of Trustees and have no authority to act for the Board of Trustees.
All standing committees will abide by the Northern Cyprus (TRNC) cap.113 laws, except that in addition to the exclusions listed in the cap.113 law, the standing committees may close meetings, when less than a quorum of the Board of Trustees is present, in the following instances:
(1) to meet with internal or external auditors to discuss any examination or audit prior to the release of an audit report; and/or
(2) to meet with attorneys from the Office of University Counsel and/or hired outside counsel to discuss any matter that is protected by the attorney-client privilege.
Consent Agenda Matters Certain matters, or categories of matters, may be referred by the Board of Trustees for discussion and recommendation by a standing committee and thereafter placed on the Board of Trustees’ consent agenda for approval by the Board of Trustees without further discussion. All matters or categories of matters, within the subject matters regularly assigned to a standing committee shall be deemed to have been referred by the Board to that standing committee. Any member of the Board of Trustees shall have the right, upon request, to remove any item from the Board’s consent agenda and place the item on the Board’s regular agenda for discussion.
In addition to the standing committees, there shall be an Operations Committee which shall consist of the Rector as chair, together with two other Board members appointed by the Chairman of the Board. The Operations Committee will meet informally, including by telephone conference, to discuss the agenda for upcoming Board of Trustees meetings and other items of business likely to come before the Board of Trustees. The meetings of the Operations Committee will not be subject to requirements of the Northern Cyprus (TRNC) cap.113 law.
Ad Hoc Committees
From time to time the Chairman of Board may appoint ad hoc committees consisting of two or three Board members to gather information and make recommendations to the Board of Trustees about specified matters. Public notice of such meetings will be given and public attendance and participation permitted as deemed appropriate by the committee chair.
Quorum for Meetings of the Board
Seven of the fourteen members of the Board shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business.
Agenda for Meetings
Items are typically considered by the appropriate Board of Trustees’ committee before going to the full Board of Trustees. The University Rector is responsible for preparation of the written agenda for Board of Trustees meetings; the Rector consults with the Rector of the Board of Trustees about each agenda. Copies of the agenda are distributed to the Board of Trustees, the University Rector, and posted on the University’s website.
Additions to the agenda may not be made less than 72 hours prior to the meeting, except in the case of an emergency as defined in the Northern Cyprus (TRNC) cap.113 law. The Board of Trustees will consider such emergency changes to the agenda at the beginning of each meeting, but once the Board of Trustees formally approves the agenda, it will be followed.
Persons or groups wishing to place an item on the agenda of the Board of Trustees, whether for possible Board of Trustees action or for purposes of addressing the Board of Trustees about an item, must submit a letter to that effect to the Rector of the Board of Trustees via the University Rector not less than four working days prior to the scheduled meeting. Final decisions to place items on the agenda or to refer items to committee will be rendered by the Chairman of the Board of Trustees after consultation with the University Rector.

Adopted Date: October, 2019
This policy applies to the selection and appointment of the Rector of the University.
The term “candidate” includes both applicants and nominees for the position of Rector of the University.
The Board of Trustees is responsible for selecting and appointing a Rector of the University. The Board considers this to be one of its most important responsibilities.
Whenever the position of Rector becomes vacant, the Board of Trustees shall conduct a search for qualified candidates for the Rectorship. The Board shall be guided by equal employment opportunity and affirmative action principles and procedures.
The Board may appoint an advisory search committee to aid in identifying qualified candidates for the Rectorship. Such a committee should be representative of the various segments of the University community and may include Board of Trustees and one or more members from United Community Education Company Ltd. (UCEC) at large. The Board will carefully consider the committee’s recommendations before taking final action but cannot be bound by those recommendations, because the Board has sole legal responsibility for appointing a Rector of the University.
All Board of Trustees, search committee members, or employees involved in the Rectorsearch process at the University shall keep confidential the identity of candidates for Rector and the details of the deliberations of those responsible for screening candidates, except as provided in this policy. Under all circumstances, letters of reference, the deliberations of the search committee, and other similar evaluative materials shall be kept confidential with respect to all candidates.

– Section 1.5: Appeals to the Board of Trustees
Adopted Date: October, 2019
This policy applies to appeals of administration, faculty, student government, or hearing board decisions to the Board of Trustees.
Faculty, staff, or students affected by a decision of the administration, faculty, student government, or hearing board may appeal the decision to the Board of Trustees. The Board has discretion to determine whether the appeal will be considered, except for those appeals from decisions of the Academic Freedom and Tenure Committee which the Board is required to hear. The Board may refer appeals to a committee of the Board for recommendation as to whether the appeal should be heard.
A person wishing to appeal a decision to the Board must submit a written petition to the Board through the Rector of the University. The petition must be filed within thirty (30) days from the date the decision being appealed was rendered, unless expressly provided by University policy to the contrary. The petition must describe the decision being appealed and the basis for the appeal.

The Board shall render its final decision within 90 days from the date the appeal was filed unless a delay is requested by one of the parties and approved by the Chairman of the Board. If no decision is rendered within the deadline, the appeal shall be deemed denied.
– Section 1.6: Special Recognition and Awards
Adopted Date: October, 2019
This policy applies to awards of honorary degrees and other types of special recognition given on behalf of the University at the discretion of the Board of Trustees. This policy does not preclude other kinds of awards and recognition by other units or officials of the University.
It is the practice of the Board of Trustees of the University to recognize from time to time the contributions of special people to the University, to the state of Northern Cyprus, or to the national or international community. The Board has established the following awards for this purpose.
- Honorary Degrees.The Mesarya Technical University wishes to recognize and thereby encourage individuals by awarding special honours to those persons who have contributed significantly to the cultural or scientific development of the Northern Cyprus, or to the spiritual or material welfare of its people. At the same time, due regard should be paid to eminent individuals and scholars whose contributions are of general significance and transcend geographic limitations. In no case should a passing courtesy to the Mesarya Technical University, such as the delivery of a commencement address, be the sole or principal cause for such honorary awards. The award of an honorary degree to a person seeking or holding a political office does not indicate endorsement by the Mesarya Technical University. Political involvement should not prevent selection of an individual for an honorary degree.
It is not the University’s policy to award honorary degrees to active members of the faculty, staff, or administration. This does not preclude, in an exceptional case, the awarding of an honorary degree to an emeritus member of the faculty or to a former employee whose stature remains or becomes eminent in the years following active service with the University. In such exceptions, sufficient time shall have elapsed to insure objectivity in the process of selection.
Honorary degrees will be awarded only upon the approval of the Board of Trustees, based on recommendations from the Honorary Degree Committee, whose membership is set out in the Faculty Handbook.
- Board of Trustees’ Meritorious Service Medal.The Board of Trustees’ Meritorious Service Medal will be awarded to a member or members of the faculty and staff of the Mesarya Technical University in recognition of extraordinary and distinguished service to the University.
The criteria for the faculty award will be outstanding teaching, service to students, research, scholarship, publications, performance in faculty and University governance, or other such contributions which have enhanced the institution.
The criteria for the staff award will be outstanding performance of duties and meritorious service which have enhanced the University.
Nominations for these awards may be submitted to the Rector by students, faculty, and staff. The final decision will be made by the Board of Trustees.
- Board of Trustees’ Recognition Medal.The Board of Trustees’ Recognition Medal will be awarded by the Board of Trustees of the Mesarya Technical University to a person or persons, other than faculty or staff, who have performed outstanding service to the institution.
The criteria for the award will be extraordinary and unselfish assistance to the University over an extended period of time. However, a single service might be recognized if, in the judgment of the Board of Trustees, circumstances warrant. Selection will be made by the Board of Trustees.
- The University Medal.The University Medal will be awarded by the Board of Trustees of the Mesarya Technical University to a person of national or international accomplishment deserving of high honour.
In keeping with the universal nature of the knowledge and public service which are embodied in the very essence of the University, the University Medal will be used to express the appreciation of the University for the Accomplishments and contributions of the individual, which may be in any field of knowledge or public service of national or international character. No limits of residence or national origin are to be placed on this award.
Since the desirability of honouring such persons should be both obvious and compelling, the Board of Trustees will not grant this award on a systematic basis, nor did institute fix time periods for making the award. The medal will be awarded only in the event that the attainments of a qualified individual are such that the administration and Board of Trustees are persuaded that this rare and special recognition is clearly deserved.
Awards will be gold and/or sterling silver alloy medal, or other appropriate device, bearing the seal of the Mesarya Technical University and other appropriate designs and will be accompanied by a certificate upon which the nature of the service will be cited.
– Section 1.7: Advisors to the Board of Trustees
Adopted Date: October, 2019
This policy applies to advisors to the Board of Trustees.
The Board of Trustees is committed to open communication with various constituencies on campus and values their advice on matters of policy and other actions affecting the University. The position of Advisor to the Board of Trustees is one method of assuring appropriate and adequate communication. Advisors are not intended to substitute for other forms of communication and access to the Board of Trustees, but rather to facilitate and focus the expression of points of view to the Board of Trustees.

- President of the Faculty Senate
- President of the Associate Students of the Mesarya Technical University (ASMTU)
- President of the Graduate and Professional Students Association (GPSA)

– Section 1.8: Regent Code of Conduct and Conflicts of Interest Policy
Adopted Date: October, 2019
This policy applies to members of the University Board of Trustees.
- Members of the Board of Trustees (“Board of Trustees”) are expected to perform their duties faithfully and efficiently and never to give rise to suspicion of improper conflict with interests of the University. Board of Trustees shall not accept favours or gratuities of significant economic value from any firm, person, or corporation that is engaged in, or attempting to engage in, business transactions with the University. They must avoid any conflict of interest that may affect their independent judgment in the impartial performance of their duties. They may not use their positions to enhance their direct or indirect financial interest or use confidential information learned as a Member for anyone’s private gain. Board of Trustees shall comply with state conflict of interest laws as well as University policies.
- No Member shall maintain a financial interest in a firm or corporation with which the University is engaged in business. In addition, a Member shall not participate directly or indirectly in any decisions relating to any transaction between the University and a business entity of which the Member or any member of the Member’s immediate family is a director or trustee.
- For the purposes of this policy, “financial interest” includes any direct or indirect financial interest. This includes any transaction between the University and the Member or a member of the Member’s immediate family. An immediate family member is a family member who shares a home with a Member; or is a person who receives financial support of more than twenty-five per cent (25%) of his or her annual income from a Member; or is a person who is claimed as a dependent for Northern Cyprus income tax purposes by a Member. “Financial interest” also includes any transaction between the University and a business entity (corporation, sole proprietorship, partnership, LLC, or similar entity) including parents or subsidiaries of the business entity, in which the Member or a member of the Member immediate family:
- has an ownership interest (other than as owner of less than one per cent (1%) of the stock of a publicly traded corporation); or
- is a partner or officer of such business entity or an employee of such business entity whose compensation is related to business transacted with the University.
- A member of the Board of Trustees will have 120 days from the date the Board of Trustees approves the “Board of Trustees Code of Conduct and Conflicts of Interest Policy” (“Code”) to fully comply with the Code. Each Member will annually certify compliance with the Code on a form approved by the Board of Trustees. Each annual certification shall be filed by the Board of Trustees with the University Counsel who shall furnish a copy to the Executive ViceRector for Administration. If a Member fails to file an annual certification or fails to comply with the Code, the Board of Trustees shall give written notice to the Director of United Community Education Company Ltd.(UCEC) of Northern Cyprus. The Board of Trustees shall not make any such notice public. Violation of the Code by a Member will be grounds for removal of that Member pursuant to the decision of United Community Education Company Ltd. (UCEC).
- Members of the Board of Trustees are required by Northern Cyprus (TRNC) laws, to file a report with the Northern Cyprus Ministry of Finance concerning the Member’s financial interests. A copy of such report shall also be filed by the Member with the University Counsel who shall furnish a copy to the Executive ViceRector for Administration and distributed to each member of the Board of Trustees. The report filed with the Vice Rector shall be supplemented to the extent necessary to set forth the Member’s financial interests as defined in Section 3 of this policy.
