Provost Workman will provide an overview of UNF’s submission of the 2010-11 BOG Annual Report and seek Board of Trustees approval. This report complies with BOG Regulation 2.002: “Each board of trustees shall prepare a multi-year work plan/report for the Board of Governors that outlines its university’s top priorities, strategic directions, and specific actions and financial plans for achieving those priorities, as well as performance expectations and outcomes on institutional and system-wide goals. The work plan/report shall reflect the university’s distinctive mission and focus on core institutional strengths within the context of State University System goals and regional and statewide needs.”
The purpose of this item is to request approval to terminate the Master of Science in Applied Sociology program. This program has been suspended since 2008 and there are currently no students enrolled. Also, at a time when greater stewardship of limited resources is more important, retaining this program seems unwise. And, the history of this program does not suggest the potential of a growing market.
Therefore, due to the absence of a robust market of students and the lack of resources needed to remedy the shortcomings, the university is recommending that the Master of Science in Applied Sociology be terminated.

The purpose of this item is to present the transportation access fee for 2012-2013. The students requested a new shuttle route to the Town Center. Based on the number of hours the shuttle would run, the cost would increase the per credit hour fee by $0.23 or a total fee of $4.08.
The transportation access fee increase for 2012-2013 was proposed by a university-wide committee and endorsed by the President, and is being presented to the Student Life and Facilities Committee for review and approval.
The purpose of this item is to present the parking permit and citation rates for 2012-2013.-2013. Proposed changes are:
Given that current permit and citation rates can cover current debt service requirements and the overall operational costs of the parking program, increases to permit and citation rates are not recommended for 2012-2013.
A recommendation is being made to combine the two permit categories “Designated” and “First Floor Garages” into one permit called “Faculty/Staff” and to sell this permit at a 1.6:1 ratio at a rate of $250.
The parking permit and citation rates for 2012-2013 was proposed by a university-wide committee and endorsed by the President, and is being presented to the Student Life and Facilities Committee for review and approval.
