II. Information Item: Update on Community Park
Vice President Gifford distributed materials related to updating Greek Housing at the University of Louisville, including a timeline (copy attached). She referenced the University’s plan to increase significantly the percentage of students who live on-campus. The University’s five-year housing vision expands residential spaces on the west side of campus, while efficiently utilizing available land for construction. Recognizing the charm and attachment to the older Greek facilities, she noted the University encouraged the Greek organizations to plan for the future. She noted flexibility was a key factor in working together with student organizations to make this plan a reality. She projected that organizations buying into this new Greek community will enjoy increased visibility and a presence on campus. Chair Livingston thanked Vice President Gifford for an excellent status report.
III. President’s Report
President Ramsey introduced Dr. Robert Felner, Dean of the College of Education and Human Development. Dr. Ramsey noted the Personnel Committee earlier today, approved naming of the honors center after Mr. and Mrs. Etscorn. President Ramsey had invited Mr. Mac Barr, senior member of the Board of Overseers and Chair of the Overseers Scholarship Committee to the meeting today, but Mr. Barr was detained by a previous engagement. Mr. Barr was instrumental in recruiting the Etscorn gift. Since Mr. Barr was unable to attend the meeting today, President Ramsey suggested the Board members express their appreciation to him directly.
Ms. Snowden made a motion, which Prof. Ensign seconded, to adjourn the meeting at 1:45 p.m. The motion passed unanimously.
