V. Action Item: Recommendation Regarding Trustee Delegation to 5th Anniversary Commencement

Ms. Shuter requested the Trustees' support for an official delegation to the June 2nd Commencement ceremony in Athens, Greece. In October, the Board of Trustees was to participate in the 5th Anniversary Ceremony of UofL's first MBA outreach satellite site in Athens, Greece. The events of September 11, 2000 overshadowed the celebration, and rescheduled the trip for the Commencement ceremony. The official delegation will adhere to the Board's approved policy for travel and reimbursement. Mr. Green made a motion, which Mr. Bridgeman seconded, to approve the

Board of Trustees' authorization of appropriate delegation of Trustees to represent it at the Commencement Ceremony marking UofL's 5th year of its international outreach program in Athens, Greece. Further, the Board authorizes its board delegation to present a resolution from the Board of Trustees acknowledging the support and appreciation from the University of Louisville for this outreach program and partnership with New York College.

The Board authorizes, according to the Board's existing travel and reimbursement policy, the payment of Trustees' expenses as limited and directly related to the participation of the delegation in the Anniversary Commencement and other ceremonial activities.

The motion passed.
