The following are the Planning Guidelines:

  3. Revenue Generation

  6. Services to Students

Perro suggested that items 4, 5, & 6 be eliminated from the Planning Guidelines since they are already addressed in the President's priorities.

Gilbertson commented that number 6 is the heart of CRM and maybe it should be refreshed instead of eliminated. He also mentioned in reference to number 3, Revenue Generation, that the Physical Therapy program generates thousands of dollars for the University during the summer and that School of Education also has a program that generates tremendous support in this effort.

Sina mentioned that there are 250 students living on campus for summer session I.

Regarding number 7 of the Budget Assumptions, Faculty and Staff Compensation, Hoverstad expressed that staying with the pension plan rather than salary increases was an important issue for many.

Gilbertson noted that 780 freshman and 250 transfers are budgeted for fall 2004. He also mentioned that the Governor's final revised budget had no adjustment for private schools regarding Cal Grant.
