Discussion of Contribution Margin Analysis handout. (Tab 14)

-         Must raise the level of awareness of the costs of curriculum.

-         Have lacked method of tying resources to accountability

-         Need to pay more attention to the carrying costs of majors that produce few graduates.

-         New Gen Ed initiatives could affect more efficient use of available resources in our academic departments, in moving to a more service-oriented approach where department offerings support other majors. (Ex: a conversational foreign language course might benefit a student in the business program.)

Agenda ideas for a combined meeting of the Curriculum Committee, the CPC and the CBC:

-         Contribution Margin Analysis

-         Who should ask the necessary questions? Lack of answers has led us to our current dilemma.

-         A financial tutorial

-         The budget forecast model

The CPC should provide the path between the top level and the departments.

FYI: Cory Flack will replace Jess Moore as a student member.

The next CBC meeting is Tuesday, January 22 at 7:30am in HUB 119.
