University Planning and Quality Council


May 10, 2006

Members Present: Provost Paul Hosier, Ms. Pat Leonard, Ms. Mary Gornto, Mr. Stephen Demski, Dr. David Cordle, Mr. Lawrence Clark, Dr. Cathy Barlow, Dr. Bettie Glenn (for Dr. Virginia Adams), Dr. Robert Roer, Dr. Mark Spaulding, Dr. Sue McCaffray, and Mr. William Fleming.

Others Attending: Ms. Mimi Cunningham, Dr. Terry Curran, Ms. Nikki Howard, Ms. Cindy Lawson, Dr. Mike Walker, and Dr. Kenneth Spackman.

Provost Hosier called the meeting to order at 3:30 pm.

The minutes of the April 19 meeting were approved as posted on the Web.

Continuing its work from the April 19 meeting, the Council acted on additional draft resource plans for progress measures as follows.

Resource plan for progress measure #4. The previous draft had been revised to reflect the cost of data gathering and strategy development as an initial investment toward increasing retention and graduation rates. This revision was approved.

Resource plan for progress measure #6. This resource plan had been approved at the April 19 meeting, subject to clarification of the inclusion of benefits and use of "median market value" for SPA employees. The group working on this resource plan determined that the resulting changes were extensive enough to bring the amended plan back for Council approval. The revised plan was approved.

Resource plan for progress measure #8. The resource plan for internationalization was approved, subject to the addition of benefits costs. It was agreed that additional careful study will be needed to determine that the targets are indeed realistic, to target contributing programs, and to calculate the actual total costs of implementation.

Resource plan for progress measure #10. Progress measure #10 was amended by adding the words "and to a level in excess of 16% by FY 2010" to make it consistent with the other progress measure time horizons. The resource plan was approved following the correction of two typos.

Provost Hosier asked Dr. Spackman to transmit all ten approved resource plans to Chancellor DePaolo.

The Planning Council agreed to the list of 2005-06 accomplishments, after the inclusion of references to student orientation materials that incorporate values and goals of the strategic plan, and use of the strategic plan to guide allocation of undesignated funds raised through a second round of calling to donors in spring 2006.

The meeting was adjourned at 4:30 pm.
