Mr. Kantor asked for approval of minutes of March 21, 2002. A motion was made and seconded (Caffrey/Guy to approve the minutes with the following corrections: 1) In the list of members present Mr. Frank Wilkinson should have been listed in members absent; and 2) on page 2, 3rd paragraph, second line it says "motion carried with 2 abstentions".

Mr. Kantor introduced Chancellor Mullen, Chancellor of the Higher Policy Commission of State of West Virginia who will be working with the Governing Board on personnel issue. Chancellor Mullen gave a brief review of some of the issues being discussed in Charleston.

A motion was made and seconded (Caffrey/Barnes) to go back into regular session at 8:10 p.m. Motion carried. 

President Update 

Tuition and Fees Academic Year 2002-2003. 

At the last meeting it was voted to increased fees 9.2%; the Policy Commission has come back taken about $800,000 of the 2.5 million dollar allocated to Community and Technical Colleges by the state legislator and will return $100 per twelve hour credit load (full time student at the institution). The tuition for the community college component of BSC will only rise 4.81% and the baccalaureate component will rise 1.9%. 

The institution will get $75,000 from peer equity funding. The governor said we had to drop 3% from our base budget, but that has changed. The community college component will not lose any of the percentages and the baccalaureate will receive some monies back. Bluefield State will recover $28,000 of the $61,000 that we loose in our base budget reduction. 

Bluefield State College has the largest FTE and Headcount in the history of the college this spring semester. 

Total revenue for Bluefield State College is 7.562 million. 

Salary Guidelines for FY2002-2003 

The salary guidelines for FY2002-2003 relating to faculty, classified and administration were discussed. After much discussion, a motion was made and second (Guy/Caffrey) to accept the second installment of 25% movement toward the zero step on the Classified Staff salary schedule for those below this level, increment paid, and 10% salary increase of those promoted in faculty rank and not to provide raises and/or increases until such time that they can review the actual revenue from enrollment for Fall 2002. Motion carried. 

Meeting Date for Policy Commission 

It was announced that the Higher Education Policy Commission will have their monthly meeting at Bluefield State College Friday, August 2 beginning at 9 a.m. 

North Central Report 

Dr. Moore indicated we did get the draft response back from North Central. This can't be put on our Web as it is confidential information nor released to the public yet. He said if you would like a copy to let him know. 

Meeting 

John Barnes and Dr. Moore attended a joint meeting last Thursday of the Higher Education Policy Commission and Board of Governors Chairs, Vice Chairs in Charleston.. Dr. Moore said one important point that was brought out is that Board of Governors should function and act as a corporate board. He said individual members do not represent any specific group. If you do it is a conflict of interest. 

Beckley 

There has been a lot of discussion concerning the resolution about restricting what Bluefield State College can do in Beckley. This issue will be brought up at the Policy Commission meeting on May 17. 

Another concern in Beckley is that a group of presidents (Marshall, Southern, West Virginia Tech, Concord College and Bluefield State) are attempting to build in Beckley a Higher Education Facility. They are in the process of beginning a process of looking at a corporation to run this facility. This facility could be completed in three years if the funding comes forth. 

Job Description 

Dr. Lynn Guy indicated she used the West Liberty job description to draft one for Bluefield State College. She said this needs to be adopted. She proposes that the draft be sent to Vivian to send out and to make this a point of action at the May meeting. 

Meeting Date 

The next meeting date is May 16, 2002. 

With no other business to transact, the meeting adjourned at 9:04 p.m. 

Respectfully submitted,

Norris Kantor
