President Delaney will present the President’s remarks.
Chair Taylor will ask the Board to approve the minutes from the November 13, 2008 workshop.
As previously reported, the NCAA D-I Athletic Certification Committee identified a gender issue in their Analysis Report with respect to two program areas: (1) women’s swimming and diving locker rooms, and (2) softball office space.
The university has developed and submitted a plan to the NCAA to address these issues and will report to the Board on the plan.
In addition, the Peer Review Evaluation Team that visited UNF as a part of the certification process recommended in their report that UNF is in need of an upgraded or new softball facility. The NCAA has clarified that the softball facility has not risen to the level of a gender issue, but is a recommendation as an opportunity for enhancement. Progress to date and future plans for softball will be discussed with the Board.
Dr. Terry MacTaggart will lead a discussion on how high performing boards and universities are working through the challenges of continuing to seek the next level with fewer resources for even the current operations. His discussion will also include a focus on institutional aspirations and Board selection.
Chair Taylor will adjourn the workshop.
