IV.              CHAIRPERSON'S REPORT & ANNOUNCEMENTS: 

 

V.                 MEMBERS' REPORTS:

 

A.    Parsons attended the FABPC meeting and discussed the use of buyouts.  Provost suggested that the University Committee review which positions get money for committee work.  The budget is $113,000.

                             

                   B.        Schultz attended the FAPBC meeting and discussed that the University will be $21 million ahead of last year even if the budget cuts proposed by the Governor go through.  This is, in part, due to a 4-½% enrollment increase from last year to the present.  Replacement positions may be more at risk than new positions in regards to the budget cuts.  Tuition may be increased by 1.8% per semester to bring total increases to 10%.

 

                   C.        Friedman reported the Vice Chancellor for the University Relations and Communications recruitment committee has not met yet.  A date is still being determined. 

 

                   D.       Glass reported the School of Business Dean recruitment is still in process.
