Reports and Current Agenda Items:
EMT Insight Report:
Enrollment Management Report of 5/14/08, we have 893 net confirmed enrolled students for Fall 2008. This is a significant increased to last years estimate of 770 students.


Unit Planning & Budget Procedure for Fiscal Years 2010 & 2011:
In section 3, Revenue Generation, there are concerns about revising the tuition rates statement for they vary between the three campuses. Based on strategic goals with the respect to revenue setting and revenue generation, this would be more flexible and address the various schools and campuses and not imply that we only base our budgets on tuition that each school raises.

Budget Assumptions: 
Section A currently has too much detail and needs revising. We have also caught up with budget assumptions FY2011, and the projection point is the same as the budget year. It is recommended to now include goals of 2015.

Section B:  Sacramento campus will continue enrollments of approximately of 1,025.Due to economic times and international students, Sacramento prefers to keep their numbers on the conservative side. Dental school will have little change. Minimal discussion with Tuition and Fees and Financial Aid.

Gift Income Section 4:  Leland and Dodson will review and provide realistic projections up to FY2012 and report back to Brodnick.

Unit Operating Reserves: No changes.

Faculty and Staff Compensation: No major revisions with A and B.Section C may need a little more revision at the next review.

Program Planning and Self Study Update:
Academic Affairs has taken on the Program Review Handbook and made a few changes regarding the language. One change is to strike the word 'handbook' and eliminate Program Review completely, and change to Programming Planning and Self Study. This shifts things to a more philosophical nature to a process of being more generated by the engine of self study. Units and academic programs would take on the responsibility for their own self analysis and evaluation and then have the orientation of recommendations for recommending planning changes. A schedule will need to be created and submitted to Cabinet for endorsement before moving forward in September. In the past, one of the significant criticisms was Program Review did not coincide with our budget model.Modifying the schedule to coincide with funding will be a significant improvement.

Deferred Maintenance:
There is currently a small amount of funds $300-$400K set aside.

Adjourned:  3:20 p.m.

Next meeting:  August 26th. Have a great summer!
