President John Delaney
The president is not at the meeting. Dr. Klostermeyer read his report as follows: As you know, over the past 3 years, the BOG has absorbed $225 million of annual recurring appropriations. It has place this funding into its metric pot, which it awards based on metric scoring. The awards are non-recurring. If this pot of money was sent directly to the state's universities, the UNF share would be about $10 million of recurring funding, which would solve a lot of problems. But the BOG is treating this money as sort of a bonus pool, awarding non-recurring funds to the higher 8 scores on its metrics plan. The BOG is no longer seeking additional funding for this pot of money. This means that we may seek annual money again directly to the universities. In short, the hope is for a degree of normalcy in funding. This gives some new energy to the strategic planning process. That process essentially is to pick a destination for UNF. How big should we be, how many faculty lines, how do we fix compression and inversion, what salary level, how much research activity, how many endowed professorships, how much scholarship funding, what should our endowment be, etc? All of that requires some expectation of funding, and now it is a realistic exercise. After two and a half years of metrics, we can look to seeking money to fund annual activities. We may win or we may lose under the metric pot of money, but since it is non-recurring funding, missing out is not devastating. See you next month or at graduation. Thanks.
Legislative Liaison Report - Janet Owen
They finished on time on March 11. They will do that early session again in January 2018. She has a very long report, but has not released it yet. UNF will get 11million to finish construction; 855,000 for advanced manufacturing and materials. Two major pieces were given to the governor on March the 30 that include the funding model, which changes the mandate of the ranking and issues with textbook. The governor has until April 13 to sign them. Joe Negron from Stuart is going on a listening tour to universities, will be here this month. The BOG is doing a joint meeting of facilities and innovation and online committees. The governor is having a Trustee summit in April. The BOG meets in June with work plan presentation. She’ll provide a final report when it’s available.
