MACON, Ga. (AP) — Former President Jimmy Carter will soon join the Mercer University Board of Trustees.

The Telegraph of Macon reports that Mercer’s board is expected to name Carter and nine other trustees to the board of the university on Friday. The school has campuses in Macon, Atlanta and Savannah.

Deanna Congileo, a spokeswoman for The Carter Center, says Mercer’s board and the board of The Carter Center will be the only boards on which Carter serves.

Larry Brumley, a senior vice president of Mercer, said Carter will have a substantive role, as do all trustees, in setting Mercer’s policies and guarding its mission. Brumley said Mercer’s mission of service seems to mesh with Carter’s.

Mercer’s 45-member board of trustees has responsibility for overall policymaking for the college. Trustees serve five-year terms.
