Board deciding Fla. State digital film school move
Board deciding whether Florida State must move its digital film school from West Palm Beach
The Board of Governors is meeting to decide whether Florida State University must move its digital film program from West Palm Beach.
The board is holding a conference call meeting Thursday to consider a committee's recommendation that the program be moved to Florida State's main campus in Tallahassee.
Florida State had been partnering with a private company, Digital Domain, in West Palm Beach. The firm, though, filed for Chapter 11 federal bankruptcy protection and has closed its new animation studio in nearby Port St. Lucie.
University officials want to keep the program in South Florida and have been looking for a new partner.
Also on Thursday's agenda is a proposed online learning plan that would include designating a single school to take the lead for the entire university system.
