The committee welcomed Kurt Shroeder, who used this meeting to discuss the work of a committee charged with the development of a new set of comparator institutions. He outlined the extensive formulas and criteria that went into cutting over 9000 schools down to the list of 80 public institutions that are most compatible to Plymouth. From there the committee removed 31 schools that least matched PSU. Applying further criteria narrowed the list to a closely comparable 14 that will comprise our new comparator list. Four schools from the old list of about 30 remain on the new list.

The agenda for the next meeting will include further discussion by Nick Mathis on comparators. Roger Tinnell also offered to participate in a smaller group to look at assessment, which was also tabled until the next meeting.

The next CBC meeting is Tuesday, October 28 at 8am in the Student Senate Room (HUB 119).
