Item 1 Call to Order

Chair Taylor called the workshop to order.

Item 2 Approval of Minutes

Chair Taylor tabled this item because there was a technical error, causing the minutes to be unavailable.

Item 3 Presentation of a Mini-Master Plan for Athletics

Chair Taylor asked Vice President Shuman to start this conversation.

Vice President Shuman stated that the original motivation to create the mini-master plan for Athletics was to consider campus sites for a football stadium. She clarified that, because the football program was unlikely in the near future, the new motivation was to develop a master plan for all of the university’s athletic facilities, and the end result was a five-phase Athletics master plan.

Vice President Shuman narrated each of the phases which included several renovations, additions and new facilities. She clarified that the goal was to centralize the university’s athletic facilities, accommodate future growth, the eventual development of a football program and provide new opportunities for the student body.

Trustees engaged in conversation about specifics of the plan, including logistics, timing and feasibility. The administration clarified that the plan would be revisited.

Item 4 Adjournment

Chair Taylor adjourned the workshop at 9:38 a.m.
