26 February 2001 Meeting Minutes

Present: P Campbell, J Landry, W. Fogleman, JP Clark, B Crangle, T Keefe, B Fahey, H Freyhofer, B McCahan.

Comments were read and discussed from several people who responded to the formation document draft that Bill had sent out via email for review. It was mentioned that some of the comments sounded divisive and the fact that a committee member belongs to one constituency group doesn’t mean they can’t effectively represent the needs of another. All committee members must think beyond their department, division or constituency group.

Dick Hage wanted to incorporate the words “student learning” into the document. The term is used within the goals and objectives of the Plan, so it was decided not to single it out for special mention in the formation document. Referring to the values of the Campus Strategic Plan will cover it. Bill will talk with Dick.

Horst moved to approve the formation document with one change to the mission (cross out the words “value-centered”). Motion was seconded by John Clark and unanimously approved.

Barbara suggested that the “CBC & Value-Centered Presentation” be distributed both before and at the 3/13 roundtable event.

Roundtable points:

  • How should we approach this event? How to feed the discussion? Ideas are welcome – contact Bill.
  • Need a process to give them something to talk about.
  • Must be careful that varying amounts of available data doesn’t drive the value choices.
  • The values have been around for years; we must establish a process to specify which ones are most important.
  • Starting with the current Strategic Plan, what would you add to this if you were doing the planning?

Mid-year budget report: In the future these memos will come from the CBC, not just Bill. Is this the best way to communicate the state of the budget? Should the format be changed? Send your thoughts to Bill.

Bill suggested a combined meeting of the CBC and the CPC to establish a mutual direction and exchange ideas.

The CBC Formation Committee is hereby dissolved pending a decision from President Wharton on the fate of the CBC.
