The minutes of the January 21, 2005, meeting were approved as distributed on the Web.

Dr. Spackman presented an overview of the components of UNCW's response to the biennial long-range planning submission to OP. Items requiring the immediate attention of the Planning Council include these:
Review of mission. Provost Hosier will appoint a small group to bring recommendations to the Council concerning any revisions in UNCW's mission statement. (Steve Demski and Bob Roer volunteered to participate in this group.)
Peer Study. Provost Hosier will ask a separate group to make proactive recommendations to Dennis Jones of NCHEMS, who is conducting a review of the peer institutions for each of UNC's constituent institutions. (Larry Clark and Mark Lanier volunteered to participate in this group.)
Response to BOG Strategic Directions. Dr. Spackman will prepare a draft based in part on activities reported at the January Chancellor's retreat, and present it for consideration at the March 21 meeting of the Planning Council.
Enrollment projections through 2015. Roxie Shabazz and Gay Howe gave a brief presentation of the issues involved and of the Enrollment Management Committee's approach to develop a recommendation on long-range enrollment projections.

The Council turned to consideration of the report of the subcommittee charged with standardizing the wording of the objectives of the Strategic Plan and developing a process, timetable and template to begin implementing the plan. The Council accepted a number of perfecting amendments to the subcommittee's recommendation for revised wording, as well as a change in wording of Goal I. All revisions are incorporated in the online Strategic Plan at:

The Council accepted the concept of the template for "UNCW Strategic Initiative Proposals" and accompanying instructions. Provost Hosier will determine whether modifications are needed and implement the process of collecting these proposals. The Council also generally agreed to the subcommittee's draft three-phase process for implementing the Strategic Plan.

The Council received a document containing draft progress measures for each of the objectives of the Strategic Plan and recognized that it needs additional work.

Discussion of preliminary plans for a planning brochure was postponed.

The meeting was adjourned at 5:30 pm.
