For state colleges and universities under Chapter 174, RSMo, Truman State and Lincoln University, confidentiality will apply to all governing board members and representatives, who may recuse themselves from any proceeding.
For Truman State and Lincoln University, the act provides that the student representative may attend all meetings, including closed meetings.
