  • Approval of the Minutes
    August 28, 2017 minutes were approved.
  • New Business/Announcements/Other Discussions
    1. Jay Coleman talked about the metrics and how they are calculated. Some Hopeful Signs. UNF rates better when compared with peers.
    2. There are 3 possibilities for a UNF specific metric: Online courses, Number of Internships, Number of Students in Undergraduate Research. BOG will select one.
    3. Academic Affairs is focusing funding on Metrics 4 and 5 that focus on Retention, Progression and Graduation. This year spent $628,306 on this issue – Retention software for better student tracking ($305,306 – non-recurring), Student OPS work to help students stay on campus ($50,000 – non-recurring (test)), and Supplemental Instruction ($273,000 – recurring). Need more money to address these. Enrollment growth is only source of funding at this point.
