President John Delaney
There was a squabble with the governor on the bond rating on the UNF project for three projects. There are three bond raters; Standard & Poor is one of those. There are two ways to finance—through the university; or through the state- division of bond finance. UNF did two projects—S&P A+ to an A downgrade. The rating agencies are heavily scrutinized. One reason for the downgrade is that UNF saw a couple hundred drop in student enrollment and transfers are down, which is a national trend. Another reason is the lack of state support for universities. There has been a decrease and all new money is non-recurring. UNF did notify about the bond; the finance people did notified the state in time, but the person who answered the emails was on vacation and the deadline was missed by a day. The state legislature is looking to increase funds for higher Ed, including some recurring money beginning next year. A reminder is that the walkway to the arena will be coming down. Finally, the student athletes have done well academically. Legislative Liaison Report - Janet OwenNo report.

Parking Advisory Council Report – Paul Mason
The council recommended no changes in restricting specific groups to specific areas; no change in rates. The nighttime faculty permit will be $150. The night faculty/staff permit for those who come midnight to 8:30am; that was tabled. The license plate recognition feature is coming; will be tested in the coming year. Nose-end parking will be required and no back-end parking. A citation will be given after three warnings. There is a $50 back-in permit that will go into effect 2017. There is an electric vehicle charging station in lot 53. There is a $30 fee if you park in that spot without charging.
"Do the President and Provost give their assurances that the search for the Permanent Dean of COAS in the Fall will truly be an open search and not have a predetermined outcome like the search for the Interim Dean position did?"
“Why is the person in charge of the retention metric being moved to another position (Dean of COAS) when we have just finished last in the state in the performance metrics?”
"Why has the search for the Dean of Honors dragged on so long? What is the timeline for its completion?"
