Taylor called the workshop to order at 8:40 a.m.
Approval of Minutes (January 7, 2014)
Taylor asked for approval of the minutes from January 17, 2014. A MOTION was
offered and seconded. The minutes were approved as presented.
Item 3 Performance-Based
Greene asked President Delaney to introduce this conversation.
Delaney spoke about the Board of Governors (BOG) performance funding model. He
noted that UNF ranked well compared to national peers. He clarified that, when
measured by the BOG’s model, there were challenges with students moving from
full-time to part-time. And, although UNF’s access rate is high, Pell
recipients require intensive and expensive support to graduate.
Delaney continued to discuss possible consequences with the BOG’s model. He
noted that, although reporting was inconsistent throughout the SUS, UNF was not
likely to rank at the bottom.
Greene asked for commentary from trustees. And, after a thorough discussion, he
adjourned the workshop at 9:25 a.m.
