III. Discussion of President Komisar's Questions from the Planning Retreats Reference 1-2

 

On April 17, 1997, the Planning and Development Committee met to discuss possible topics for this meeting. A summary of that meeting is attached as Reference 1.

As a follow-up to that meeting and the retreats held by the Board of Regents over the past six months, the committee will discuss the three questions posed by President Komisar:

 

    1. What are the strengths of the University of Alaska?

    2. Where are the areas we are not serving?

    3. How do we liberate resources within the University and find outside sources of funding?

Reference 2 contains the summarization of the past three retreats as presented by Vice President Creamer at the April 16, 1997 retreat. Committee members are asked to bring the three retreat booklets to assist in this discussion.

IV. Review and Recommendations Regarding Potential Cuts

 

The committee will review recommendations from the university administration regarding potential cuts to the MAUs to deal with the projected funding shortfall. The committee will then formulate recommendations on potential cuts for presentation to the Full Board.

V. Review and Recommendations Regarding Options for Internal Reallocation

The committee will review recommendations from the university administration regarding options for internal reallocations to the MAUs to deal with the projected funding shortfall. The committee will then formulate recommendations on options for internal reallocation for presentation to the Full Board.

VI. Review and Recommendations Regarding Long-Term Planning Questions References 3-4

The committee will discuss long-term planning strategies and review the recommendations from board members regarding the five questions posed by Regent Gagnon to assist the Planning and Development Committee in long-term planning efforts.

As requested by the committee, Reference 4 contains the Kaludis Report, a planning document that was presented to the board by consultants George Kaludis and Associates in June 1992. A bibliography of university planning documents will be hand-carried to the meeting.
