Action Items

Strategic Plan
Dr. Spackman asked the Council to endorse A Transition from the Strategic Plan 1998-2003 to the Strategic Plan 2004-2009, to be submitted as Appendix A to the Long-Range Planning Submission to the Office of the President.  The Council agreed by consensus to the following changes:

  1. Item 18 of the Critical Issues list, "Increase college going rates of African-American males," was amended to read, "Improve minority presence on the campus."
  2. The University Needs List was removed as an appendix since it had not been updated in some time.  The Council agreed that the University Needs List will be updated after the budget planning cycle for FY 2003-2004 is completed; and following deletion of needs that have been met and a structured opportunity for the divisions, College and schools to add new items to the Needs List.

Several additional perfecting amendments were agreed to by unanimous consent.  The following motion was made by Dr. Seiple:
           That the Council adopt the document titled "A Transition from the Strategic Plan 1998-2003 to the Strategic Plan 2004-
            2009," as amended, as a transitional guide for developing UNCW's next strategic plan.

The motion was seconded and carried.

There was no new business.

The meeting was adjourned at 5:00 pm.
