I. Call to Order
After determining a quorum present, Chair Cauble called the meeting to order at 12:35 p.m.
- Approval of Minutes, July 23, 2001
Mr. Helman made a motion, which Mr. Owens seconded, to approve the minutes of July 23, 2001. The motion passed.
II. Action Item: Approval of Bylaws Change: Trustee Emeritus
Chair Cauble reported that the board first received this item at the September Board of Trustees meeting as information only, and the recommendation included trustees who had served the University since 1995. Based upon Trustee feedback the revised recommendation now includes former trustees since 1970, when the University entered the state system.
President Shumaker conveyed the University's deep respect for the many former trustees who continue to be very actively interested in supporting the University. This recommendation would allow the University to stay "connected" with them officially and to appreciate all that they do for UofL. The former trustees will receive notice of this new class as Trustee Emeritus.
Based on discussions with Trustees Abrams and Shuter, Chair Cauble questioned whether former chairs should be treated differently than other at-large and constituency trustees. Trustee Loving suggested that the University might consider special events for past chairs to honor them on a regular basis, the Trustee Emeritus status should be inclusive. Trustee Frazier commented that most universities: 1) recognize an emeritus category; 2) have a committee to review and recommend this status to the President; and 3) treat the chairs as a separate recognition.
Chair Cauble informed the Committee that notice began with the September 24, 2001 meeting, which allows the Personnel Committee to act on this recommendation this month. Trustee Green suggested the Board allow President Shumaker to work out appropriate details of recognizing Trustee Emeriti. Mr. Helman made a motion, which Mrs. Worland seconded to approve the Board of Trustees recommendation
that the Board create a category of Trustee Emeritus and amend the Bylaws of the Board to reflect this new position by inserting the following language as Article 6: Trustee Emeritus.
"Article 6: Trustee Emeritus. A person whose term(s) as a Trustee has expired as of July 1970 and thereafter and who has expressed a willingness to continue supporting the University of Louisville shall upon the recommendation of the Executive Committee be conferred the permanent title of Trustee Emeritus."
The motion passed.
