Present: Crangle, Mathis, Barry, Ramsay, McCahan, Freyhofer, Fogleman, Wixson, Wilhelm, Huckins, Landry, Campbell and Hage. Excused: Fahey, Flack, Kent and Moore.

Academic Contribution Margin Analysis: Discussion about format and models centered on the key product of this exercise, which is the tracking of “change”. What have the trends shown over time? The data of each department’s cost per credit must be tracked easily and consistently, and any changes analyzed.

After more discussion of the model as presented by Ed Wixson, the committee agreed to adopt this model for tracking the contribution margins.

Student fees: These handouts (tab 16) concern the student fee increase for FY03, and include a history and background of PSU fees, a proposed fee letter to President Wharton, and a list of student organization requests and allocations for FY03. Questions followed regarding the future of the orientation fee after the discontinuance of IAC. The fees topic will be continued on the agenda for the next meeting. Please read the handouts beforehand.

On March 12 the CBC will meet jointly with the University Planning Committee beginning at 7:30am in HUB 119.
