I. Call to Order

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

Approval of Minutes, January 8, 2004

Ms. Brown made a motion, which Ms. Denny seconded, to approve the minutes of January 8, 2004. The motion passed unanimously.

II. Action Item: Approval of Personnel Documents in the College of Arts & Sciences and the

College of Business & Public Administration

Dr. Willihnganz reported the proposed policy change in the College of Arts & Sciences document clarifies a section of personnel policy on the standard for review for promotion in rank to professor (Section 2.3). The proposed change involves adding a reference to the Redbook and the unit By-Laws with regard to the annual review of faculty with administrative appointments. The Dean's Guidelines, which are not subject to Board approval, will be mandated accordingly. The College of Arts and Sciences Faculty Assembly approved the proposed changes on February 13, 2004.

The proposed personnel policy change in the College of Business and Public Administration eliminates the Performance Review Committee from the appeal process for annual reviews. The Personnel Committee is now charged with being the single appeals body; previously both committees would review appeals. The College of Business and Public Administration Faculty approved these changes on September 26, 2003. University Counsel has reviewed the changes. Mr. Helman made a motion, which Ms. Hagen seconded, to approve the

President’s recommendation that the Board of Trustees approve the revisions to the personnel documents of the College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Business and Public Administration as attached hereto (Exhibits A and B respectively).

The motion passed unanimously.

III. Executive Session

Pursuant to KRS 61.810(1)(f), Ms. Hagen made a motion, which Mr. Helman seconded, to go into executive session at 12:38 p.m. The motion passed unanimously.

IV. Open Meeting Reconvenes

Chair Cauble reconvened the open session at 1:05 p.m. and reported that the Committee discussed personnel recommendations, the 2004 Alumni Fellows Awards, nominations for honorary degrees, and the status of the search for Executive Vice President/Provost position. Chair Cauble noted the EVP/Provost search process and honorary degree nominations required no action. Ms. Loving made a motion, which Ms. Denny seconded, to approve the
