Continuing Issues:

  1. Budget – Cavanaugh presented an updated budget for the Stockton campus.

    A. The net tuition for the 2001 budget was adjusted to account for spring tuition figures. Additionally, the one time cost for the Environmental Safety audit was moved to the fiscal year ’01 account and $500,000 was moved from the unrestricted reserve to address the initial cost for the Cisco project.
      1. The 2002 budget was adjusted to include the IPC first tier recommendations and required cost increases including utilities and benefits. The Auxiliaries income and expense areas were also adjusted to reflect additional Athletic scholarships. Cavanaugh also explained that the cost of demolishing the Quonset huts was built into the Arts and Geo Sciences project and therefore would not reflect an additional "02 expense. Further the cost to move duplicating services and add equipment was adjusted through salary savings. All in all, $4 million dollars in base additions were added to the budget.
      2. The 2003 preliminary budget was also presented and only included basic increases such as utilities, benefits and 3% salary increases. It was noted that in order to address only these changes, the gross tuition would need to increase by 4.36%.
  2. MVP Statement: Continued discussion on the draft of the MVP occurred. Gilbertson will incorporate our suggestions for enhancement and present the next draft for the university community to review and discuss. We will have 6 forums with the UoP community to discuss the document before final changes are made and recommended to the President and Board of Regents.
