The meeting was called to order at 3:05 PM and the minutes of the October 2, 1995 were approved as distributed.


Enrollment Affairs Report

Dr. Carter reported on current admissions information and projected 1996-97 enrollment. If the University decides to increase enrollment beyond projected levels then it will need to consider the impact this will have on quality. Inability to attract more highly qualified students and out-of-state applicants is probably linked to the limited scholarship funds available. The Council will be provided with updated admissions and enrollment information at each meeting.

UNCW Accountability System

Mr. Fry shared the revised draft copy of General Administration's Goals, Strategies and Performance Indicators that are being prepared in response to a legislative request. Mr. Fry along with other UNC institutional research personnel have served on the team charged with developing these measures. He explained that some of the surveys to be conducted as part of this process was new while some have been conducted in the past. Concern was raised by Council members over several of the proposed measures. The University system chief academic officers will be meeting in February with Dr. Gary Barnes, Associate Vice President for Planning, to discuss these items in more detail.

Planning Materials on the World Wide Web

Mr. Fry stated that the University-wide Mission, Goals, Objectives and the Council Agenda and Minutes will be placed on the World Wide Web within the next few months. Council members will be asked to review this material once it is in place. Planning information will only be available to the UNCW community.


It is expected that an Update to General Administration's five year plan will probably be due at the end of the calendar year and divisions were asked to being updating their plans in preparation for that request. It was noted that several divisions have already started preparing their plans.

Scenario to Think About

The alternate scenario of Higher Education during the next 20 years was explained by Mr. Fry. He stated that in finding ways to reduce costs if more cost was added to student tuition and fees and alternate delivery systems and sites.


The next meeting will be on March 27, at 3 PM in Alderman 215.

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 4:20 PM.
