Office of the President

May 11, 2011

From: Daniel Mark Fogel, President

To: Board of Trustees

Re: Annual Board Meeting, May 20-21, 2011

Enclosed are materials related to next week’s Board of Trustees meeting. Committee
meetings begin on Thursday afternoon and will run throughout the day on Friday. The
UVM and Vermont Agricultural College Boards will meet on Saturday morning before
the Full Board meeting.
Commencement activities begin Saturday afternoon and continue through lunch on
Sunthday. This year’s celebration will mark our 207 Commencement Exercise. I hope your
schedule will permit you to attend as many events as possible.
Appended to this memo is a tabular summary that offers a succinct overview of all
strategic action items coming before the Board. Also included is the latest version of the
Dashboard Indicators. The summary and the individual committee meeting agendas and
accompanying memos provide an excellent overview of key issues and decisions before
the Board. Rather than review individual agendas, I want to draw your attention to
several key University-wide strategic issues and action items before the Board:
• The Committee of the Whole will meet two times (under a single agenda with
recesses at times certain). Time is reserved during the morning session for a
presentation from Grenzebach Glier & Associates, campaign counsel, on their
recommendation to proceed with a comprehensive eight-year campaign effort beginning
July 1, 2011. The Committee will be asked to authorize the administration to
proceed with the advance phase of the campaign. Time will be reserved at the end of
the morning session for an executive session for the purpose of discussing a
contract and civil actions. Action is anticipated following those discussions. The
Committee will be updated on the Strategic Capital Plan version 6.0 and
Enterprise Risk Management planning. Two senior undergraduate students, along with
their faculty mentors, will discuss research and scholarship they are conducting.

• The Committee will reconvene late Friday afternoon for Committee Chairs to
report on their recommendations regarding key strategic action items. Time will be
reserved for an executive session for the purpose of discussing contracts and the
evaluation of a public officer. Action is anticipated following that discussion.

• The Educational Policy and Institutional Resources (EPIR) Committee will be
asked to approve revisions to the Academic Program Review process, and,
pending the outcome of the May 19 Faculty Senate meeting, asked to approve Phase I
of a program of General Education at UVM. The Committee will be asked to
review and adopt a new Faculty Handbook that applies only to the College of
Medicine. Status updates will be provided on Program Viability Review and
Internationalization. Provost Knodell will seek a motion in support of exploring the
options under which the University could successfully execute an increase in
enrollment of international students as one component of a larger
internationalization effort. The Committee will also be asked to endorse and remit to the Budget,
Finance & Investment Committee a resolution authorizing Phase I of the
Soccer/Lacrosse Turf Field project, the current estimate of which will be fully
financed by non-debt funding.

• The Budget, Finance and Investment (BFI) Committee will review and discuss the
administration’s recommended FY 2012 budget, including tuition and fees levels
and room and meal rates. Included as attachment 2 in the Budget, Finance and
Investment Committee section of the meeting materials is a detailed memorandum
from Provost Knodell and Vice President Cate outlining the budget proposal. As
referenced above, contingent upon endorsement by the EPIR Committee, the BFI
Committee will consider approval of a resolution authorizing Phase I of the
Soccor/Lacrosse Turf Field project. At the recommendation of the Investment
Subcommittee (ISC), the Committee will consider adoption of a Quasi-Endowment
Policy created to provide guidance to Trustees in their oversight of the creation,
management, and termination of quasi-endowed funds involving the University’s
consolidated endowment pool. These funds create a mechanism for the University
to save and invest sums of money to be spent over time to achieve long-range
academic objectives.


Chair Robert Cioffi, Rachel, and I will host a dinner at Englesby House on Friday night.
We look forward to seeing everyone next week.
