Provost Willihnganz reported on April 24, 1995 the Board approved the current Policy and Procedure for Performance Reviews of Deans.

Ms. Abrams made a motion, which Ms. Worland seconded, to approve the

President's recommendation to approve the following change to the Policy and Procedure for Performance Reviews of Deans: "In accordance with The Redbook 3.2.3, dean's performance shall be reviewed after each five years service." The proposed change will make decanal reviews consistent with the reviews of the President, Provost and Vice Presidents.

The motion passed unanimously.

Provost Willihnganz reported the Voluntary Leave Sharing Program was implemented in 2002.

The purpose of the Shared Leave Program was to provide additional paid leave to employees who have or are recovering from a serious health condition or who have immediate family members who have or are recovering from a serious health condition. Vice President Owsley noted the Human Resources Advisory Committee would like to request an additional year to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. Since its inception, 65 people have benefited from the Shared Leave Program with a total of 6199 hours. Ms. Abrams made a motion, which Mr. Forman seconded, to approve the

President's recommendation that the Shared Leave Programs be extended for one year from November 2005 to November 1, 2006 to allow the Human Resources Advisory Committee time to evaluate the effectiveness of the program and to recommend changes to the Board of Trustees.

The motion passed unanimously.
