I. Call to Order

Having determined a quorum, Chair Cauble called the meeting to order at 12:30 p.m.

Approval of Minutes

Ms. Brown made a motion, which Ms. Denny seconded, to approve the minutes of October 9, 2003. The motion passed unanimously.

II. Action Item: Approval of Ralph Wright Natatorium Designation

President Ramsey reported Mr. Ralph Wright was UofL’s first aquatic team coach. He served in that capacity from 1948-1966. Coach Wright was also an outstanding swimmer, achieving status as an All-American and breaking the men’s American record in the 100 breast stroke in 1939. He reached #3 in the country for his alma mater, the College of the Pacific. Bernie Dahlem, an Overseer and major contributor to the natatorium, states, “Ralph Wright was a jewel, one of the nicest men I have ever met. He worked us like a slave driver, but he was the consummate motivator and character builder. When you spent time with him, not only did you improve as a swimmer, but you were a better person.” Mr. Dahlem was a Speed alumnus who swam on UofL’s team from 1948-1950. Although the University has held its groundbreaking ceremony, the dedication of this facility requires board approval. Ms. Hagen made a motion, which Ms. Denny seconded to approve the

University Awards and Designations Committee’s recommendation to the President naming the new natatorium the Ralph Wright Natatorium.

The motion passed unanimously.

III. Action Item: Approval of Job Description for VP for Athletics Position

President Ramsey reported the position description for the Vice President for Athletics is comprised of a delegation from the UofL Athletic Association Board of Directors to the Athletic Director. In October, the UofL Athletic Association Board approved the proposed change in title for the Athletic Director along with modest changes in the position description and delegations. The proposal reflects the Athletic Board’s support. Ms. Hagen made a motion, which Ms. Denny seconded, to approve the

President’s recommendation that the Board of Trustees approve the attached job description for the Vice President for Athletics.

The motion passed unanimously.

IV. Executive Session

Pursuant to KRS 61.810(1)(f), Ms. Loving made a motion, which Ms. Brown seconded, to go into executive session. The motion passed unanimously.

V. Open Meeting Reconvenes

Ms. Cauble reconvened the open session at 12:40 p.m. She reported that the Committee discussed in executive session the personnel recommendations, Grawemeyer Award recipients for 2004, five year review of Dr. Joel Kaplan as Dean of the School of Medicine, and five year review of Dr. Joel Kaplan as Vice President for Health Affairs. Chair Cauble noted the information concerning the Grawemeyer Awards for 2004 and the information item concerning Dr. Kaplan’s review as Vice President for Health Affairs do not require action of the Committee.
