The Council considered suggestions received for Strategic Priorities 2009-11. (Please see the minutes of the February 24 meeting for related background, purpose and process.) The Council agreed on these two priorities:

A. Enrich the intellectual climate and the student experience, thereby increasing

student success.

B. Continue to build a safe community of inclusion, civility and respect.

Two working groups were formed, one for each priority, and charged with 1) developing a list of tactics/strategies/efforts, involving the potential contribution of multiple units across campus, that would advance the priority, and 2) for each tactic/strategy/effort, identifying the method of measuring its success. Provost Chapman assigned working group membership as follows.

Working Group A (for Priority A): Brian Chapman (leader), Deb Saunders-White,

Cathy Barlow, Bob Roer, Dick Dillaman and Nancy Jones

Working Group B (for Priority B): Jose Hernandez (leader), David Cordle, Mike Walker,

Bruce McKinney and Lisa Castellino

These groups were asked to disseminate their recommendations prior to the April 15 meeting.

The meeting was adjourned at 3:25 pm.
