Update on Capital Requests


Lowell reported that he has not received any feedback from the Twin Cities budget office regarding our Capital Request. He asked for comments from the committee on what they would like to do next. Jonathan said he is not in favor of building a new dorm, especially with the suggested proximity to the rest of the campus. Sandy added that there could be some exciting opportunities with building a new dorm—the possibility of a green building is very exciting and regarding the Food Service building, thereีs the possibility of planting a garden which Donna finds very desirable. Andy asked committee members to send their suggestions/comments to either Lowell or Andy.


Program review and budget matters


Chancellor Johnson presented a PowerPoint presentation on program review and budget matters that will be presented to the campus later today.
