Provost Barlow called the meeting to order at 2:00 pm.

The minutes of the April 13 meeting were approved as posted on the Web.

Dr. Spackman announced the meeting schedule for 2010-11 (see below).

A consolidated Vision 2020 draft report developed by the working group formed at the April 13 meeting (Barlow, McFarland, Cordle, Roer, Lawson, Spackman) was presented and discussed. Provost Barlow stated clearly the task before the Council: do we agree on the content of the proposed initiatives? Nevertheless, there were lingering questions about the audience of the draft document, the level of detail, the role of staff, the relationship between Vision 2020 and the strategic plan, and the order in which the initiatives are to be listed. Many ideas were expressed, and the working group (with the addition of Mark Lanier) was asked to meet again before the end of May to revise the Vision 2020 draft to include more specificity (action steps and strategies), reordered initiatives, and a clearer depiction of the newly approved mission statement as impetus for Vision 2020.

Chancellor DePaolo thanked Dr. Spackman for his service as planning director, and members commemorated his last Planning Council meeting with cake and refreshments.

The meeting was adjourned at 3:30 pm.
