6.    President’s Office --- Dr. Michael Nietzel first presented a 2006 Honor Roll Recognition by the President’s Higher Education Community Service Group to Mr. Sean Cain, representing the student body, for their work related to the Gulf hurricanes of 2005.  Dr. Nietzel next gave a brief update of the 2007 session of the Missouri General Assembly.  Senate Bill 389 includes: 1) the Lewis & Clark initiative with $35 million earmarked for Missouri State University renovations; 2) restrictive tuition increases based on a national CPI; 3) a significant increase in state need-based scholarships and the consolidation of two scholarship programs into one; and 4) new powers for the CBHE.  He reported that we received a 4.2% increase in our operating budget, an additional $500,000 in ongoing money for our share of the Cooperative Engineering program with the University of Missouri at Rolla, and an additional $500,000 in ongoing money for the West Plains campus.  We did not receive the $500,000 in one-time money to help with the startup of the Cooperative Engineering program.  We are looking at how this will affect the timing of this program.  

Dr. Nietzel next reported on the appointment of a President’s Emergency Response Task Force to address: 1) how to prevent, mitigate, and respond to incidents of campus violence and threats, both internal and external; and 2) to conduct a broader review of campus emergency policies and procedures to include; tornadoes and severe weather; fire; bomb threats; and earthquakes.

Motion passed 8-0.

Dr. Nietzel next presented a resolution (Policies & Procedures No. 124-07) approving the Missouri State University Criminal Background Check Policy.  Before the Board acts on this resolution, he requested that Dr. Mark Richter of the Faculty Senate be able to speak for the Faculty Senate regarding this proposal.  Dr. Richter stated that this is a solution looking for a problem and that we have absolutely no evidence that it will improve safety on this campus.  He encouraged the Board to charge the administration with conducting a detailed safety study to see how faculty who are felons rank with other safety issues such as date rape, weapons, alcohol poisoning, and drug abuse.  He also commented that the faculty hiring procedures include reference letters, calls to references, and off-list calls to references and these are much stronger procedures than the lax procedures for hiring per-course faculty or graduate assistants who are exempt from background checks under this proposal.  Several of the governors commented that maybe the proposal does not go far enough and that we need to review the exempting of these classifications of employees.  Dr. Nietzel commented that he thought it was reasonable to ask this question – “Is it unreasonable for a university to know whether it is about to hire a felon?”  Mr. Franks asked if there was a motion to approve the proposed resolution.  Mr. Duggan so moved, receiving the second of Mr. Hammons.

Motion passed 8-0.

Dr. Nietzel concluded his report by summarizing the 2008 fiscal year education and general operating budget for the Springfield campus which is just one part of the total budget to be acted on by the Board at their June 29, 2007 Board meeting.  Anticipated 2008 revenue increases from the state appropriation increase, the additional money for the cooperative engineering program, the 3.5% student fee increase, and a modest estimated increase of 100 additional FTE students, total about $5.71 million.  A salary pool of 4.0% for merit, .2% for equity, and .3% for special circumstances was used.  When including internal allocations from cost centers, there will be some salary increases greater than 4.5%.  Total salary and benefit increases come to about $4.7 million.  Total estimated 2008 revenues and expenditures come to, respectively, $157.5 million and $156.9 million leaving about a $600,000 increase in the recurring assets of the university.  There are about $5.8 million in one-time expenditures allocated for special projects, financial aid, academic initiatives, and support services.  Projected reserves at June 30, 2008 are about $23.6 million (about a three-month reserve).  Three years ago, we had about a three-week reserve.

Dr. McCarthy next presented a resolution (Curriculum No. 308-07) to change the name of the Department of Family Development, Early Childhood and Elementary Education to the new name of Department of Childhood Education and Family Studies effective immediately  (Curriculum No. 308-07).  Moved by Ms. Sheid, receiving the second of Mr. Hammons.
