Current Agenda Items:

FY07 Tuition Increase Recommendation & Budget Plan

Perro discussed several new items added to the budget plan which will be presented to the Board on January 20:

  • Tuition rate comparison to major competitors - Pacific rates lower.
  • Pricing of housing facilities - Pacific's rates are very competitive.
  • Change in tuition rate from 5.5% increase down to 4.9% increase, no change in fees, and room & board will increase 5.0%.

Schedule for Budget Recommendations

A schedule was reviewed. Gilbertson did ask the Committee how much backup documentation was needed with recommendations.

University Plan 2008-2015, Call for Proposals

Brodnick distributed the Call for Proposals for Program Innovation. The first deadline for submission will be February 15. The clusters conveners are scheduled to meet on or about February 1. 

Discussion of UP Community Meetings

With the revision of the new University Plan, Brodnick's concern was interaction, communication, and receiving feedback from the University community. Blackboard, open forums, and panel responses were suggested. A two phase plan for community feedback was developed. Phase I will focus on the values and vision statements and involve two IPC members with each constituent group. Phase II will include drafts of the entire University Plan. The process should be completed by the end of the spring term.

Next meeting: January 24, 2006, 2-4pm

Meeting adjourned at 4:08
