26 October 2004

Present: Fahey, Staples, Crangle, Sparks, Driscoll, Thurston, McCool, Huckins, Mathis, Hines, Barry, Cocchiarella, Moore, Mackey. Absent: Bernier, Landry, Hage.

The minutes were approved as written.

FBRC report: Alice said the committee plans to meet with the department chairs as soon as dates in November can be arranged.

Nick distributed and explained the IPEDS Report (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System), which collects data from all institutions and educational organizations in the country.

Bill presented the PSU Comparator Report, which takes the bulk of its information from the IPEDS Report. All schools listed are Masters One schools except for Keene State. KSC no longer matches up very well with PSU but remains on the list. These comparators are used to set aspirations for growth along with a measure of how we are doing compared to other schools. Bill discussed many of the comparator categories, such as enrollment, admissions, costs, and retention.

Also distributed was a handout on cost benefit containment efforts. Bill asked that everyone read the handout before the next meeting, when Carol Kuzdeba from Human Resources will join the CBC for a discussion.

The next CBC meeting will be on Tuesday, November 9 at 8am in the HUB Student Senate Room (119).
