Chancellor DePaolo called the meeting to order at 3:30 pm.

The minutes of the September 1, 2005, meeting were approved as distributed on the Web.

  1. Ed.D. in Educational Leadership. Dr. Robert Roer reported on the status of planning for the university's second doctoral program. The Ed.D. in Educational Leadership has received the approval of the UNCW Graduate Council, the Cabinet and the Chancellor. It has been submitted to the Office of the President for consideration at the April meeting of the system Graduate Council. If approved, the program will begin Fall 2007.

  2. Priority Progress Measures. Dr. Spackman noted changes made to progress measures #1, 2 and 4 as requested by the Council at the September 1 meeting. The Council discussed at length the two progress measures remaining for final review: #7 (annual R&D expenditures) and #9 (endowment for scholarships). Progress measure #7 was amended to set the target at "at least $20 million by 2010." Progress measure #9 was amended by deleting the words "in process by 2010" so that it now reads "Raise significant endowment for diversity and merit scholarships, with a campaign to be completed by 2013." Dr. Tyndall moved, and Dr. Adams seconded, that the Council adopt the ten Priority Progress Measures, as amended. The motion carried without dissent. The final approved version of the Priority Progress Measures are published on the Web at:

  3. Next steps in strategic planning. The Council identified three areas of future effort:
    . publication of a strategic planning brochure,
    . ensuring that the strategic plan is incorporated into divisional/unit plans, and
    . linking the plan to assessment (beyond the progress measures).
    In a future meeting (now planned for the December 8 meeting), Student Affairs will describe how their strategic planning has been redesigned to reflect the university's strategic plan.

The meeting was adjourned at 5:02 pm.
