Others Attending: Ms. Marybeth Bianchi, Dr. Raymond Burt, Mr. Ed Davis, Ms. Nikki Howard, Mr. Mark Lanier, Ms. Nanette Manning and Dr. Kenneth Spackman.
A quorum was established and Chancellor DePaolo called the meeting to order at 3:35 pm.
The minutes of the February 5, 2004, meeting were approved as distributed on the Web.
1. Dr. Spackman reported briefly on the meeting of task force chairs held February 17. Each of the four task forces (Basic Studies Review, First-Year Experience, Diversity, International Issues) will present to the Council at its March 3 meeting information about their respective issues for potential inclusion in the university's strategic plan.
2. The Council took up consideration of the working list of main issues begun at the February 5 meeting. The approach was to frame each issue as an overarching strategic direction, and then identify the components that are needed to operationalize that direction and that will lead to the articulation of measured, timed strategic goals. An expanded, but still far from complete, working list was constructed.
3. Dr. Hosier assigned three working groups to complete/refine/edit/amend three of the main issues. (The issues of fundraising, diversity, and internationalization are being addressed by other groups.) He asked that each group meet at least once in advance of the next meeting, and be prepared to present their results for Council consideration at that time. The working group memberships are:
#1 Quality academic environment and sense of campus community
Jo Ann Seiple (head)
#3 Faculty/staff quality, retention and development
Dan Noland (head)
Karen Wetherill-Cathy Barlow
#6 Regional engagement
Bob Tyndall (head)
There was no new business.
The meeting was adjourned at 5:05 pm.
