James Roark called the meeting to order.
Minutes of the September 13, 2000, Meeting were distributed.
Roark updated committee members on on-going UNK initiatives. The Technology Steering Committee has been revising its Strategic Plan. Most of the things in the first plan have been done or are at least partially done. The things not yet done are under review to see if they are still needed. New considerations have arisen in the last couple of years that may need to be incorporated into a strategic plan.
With regard to Program Prioritization, by mid-October, we will distribute a program definition to the campus at large for their input. Deans have been asked for their definition of programs and subprograms. We modified that to get a common program definition that could cross college boundaries. Information will be compiled at program and subprogram levels. Members of the Committee offered corrections that will be incorporated into the final document.
A December deadline has been established for finalizing and weighting measures/indicators. Thereafter, they can be integrated in Academic Program Review this year. As has been previously stated, the Smith Commission established nine criteria to use without exception or modification. The campuses, however, have been given license to measure and weight these criteria as desired.
Bohnhoff distributed a discussion handout of these measures. The Committee discussed the nine criteria and offered suggestions and corrections to the handout. Bohnhoff will revise prior to the next meeting.
The next meeting will be held in the Warner Conference Room on Tuesday, October 31, at 3 p.m. Meeting was adjourned.
