This two-hour training session will be held on December 10th in conjunction with the scheduled Board meeting. On the occasion of his retirement as Rector, Mr. Batten made the following comments: The leader of the University is not the Rector; the leader of the University is the President. The job of the Rector, of course, is to be the leader of the Board. My goal as leader of the Board has been two-fold. First, to make sure everybody has had a chance to discuss things and that the Board has had an 3 opportunity to focus on more substantive issues and try not to get lost too much in the minutiae of the University. But more importantly, its been to cheer on the President and encourage the President and all those sort of things to show our appreciation and thanks and offer whatever advice that we can give. I want to compliment President Runte for the great job that shes done and also to say that Ive been very impressed with the group of Vice Presidents, the Provost and Deans that have been assembled here at ODU. So its been a pleasure to serve as a Rector and a pretty easy job given the outstanding administration. PRESIDENTS REPORT President Runte thanked Mr. Batten for his service as Rector. Before the Presidents Report, the Provost concluded his comments about the Strategic Plan, stating that it is a dynamic document and all comments received today, as well as any others Board members wish to email him, are appreciated and will be considered as the Plan is finalized and brought to the Board again in December for approval. The President provided on update on Universitys activities since the last meeting, including planning, energizing and regrouping, obtaining support for selective strategic targets, reaching out to the community, and trying to improve communications and campus life. Planning has involved preparation of the Strategic Plan, smooth implementation of the Master Plan, and welcoming larger numbers of students to the campus and opening new residences. Retreats were held for the senior administrative staff as well as the administrative staff, during which the campus safety, strategic planning, Maglev, and the Master Plan were discussed. The larger retreat also featured a visit to the Naval Base and a tour of the USS Harry S. Truman. President Runte reported that the Research Foundation and Distance Learning are currently being reviewed. The President reviewed ODUs strategic initiatives for which funding is being sought during the Technical Session of the General Assembly. These include: (1) a model program with Portsmouth Public Schools that involves intensive mentoring, early college and lateral exchange programs; (2) outreach to all area high schools to assure quality and access; (3) Making Mathematics Count, a program to improve mathematics skills and thereby increase graduation and retention rates, as well as participation in the sciences; (4) a Wind Tunnel upgrade, (5) Modeling and Simulation applications for logistics, port security and transportation systems, and (6) Bio-electrics. President Runte reviewed her legislative visits and community outreach activities, including Community Care Day on October 16, meetings and speeches with various civic leagues and associations, and meetings with various Mayors and City Managers. She also outlined various communications strategies to highlight activities at Old Dominion University and noted visits made to distance learning sites to celebrate the tenth anniversary of TELETECHNET.

He also led a discussion on the implications of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act relative to audit oversight roles of the Board. Following his presentation, the Committee discussed the merits of forming a separate Audit Committee. The Committee has concluded that a separate Audit Committee 27 is appropriate and directed Vice President Fenning to work with President Runte and Mr. Hennett to develop a recommended approach for such an Audit Committee. In addition, they are to review current Board By-laws and Policies and to recommend appropriate revisions, which would be necessitated by the formation of a separate Audit Committee, and forward this recommendation to the Administration & Finance Committee for comment. If approved in concept, they would then forward these recommended revisions to the By-laws Committee for review and approval, with the intent that any required changes to By-laws and associated policies be presented to the Administration and Finance Committee and full Board at the December meeting. Vice President Fenning reported on several items of interest, including activities associated with the opening of Fall semester and a status report on the University Village. He also presented the Universitys priority recommendations for General Fund and Non-General Fund Capital Projects to be submitted for the upcoming Technical Session of the General Assembly. While the final programs and cost estimates are currently being reviewed and revised, the list of projects include: General Fund 1. Diehn Fine & Performing Arts-Phase I - a 110,000 square-foot new facility which would be funded by a combination of private and public funds and house the Universitys concert hall, rehearsal and instructional spaces, as well as shared spaces with the Governors School for the Arts. 2.

Vice President Fenning discussed with the Committee a possible administrative procedure for notifying the Board of the Universitys intent to award contracts for the construction of capital projects that was requested at the last Executive Committee.

The Committee concluded its regular agenda with a review of standing reports on the status of capital outlay projects and a report on University investments. INSTITUTIONAL ADVANCEMENT COMMITTEE The Rector called on Mr. Hall for the report of the Institutional Advancement Committee. Mr. Hall reported that Vice President Broderick showed the Committee the Universitys new Web home page, which made its debut this past Tuesday.

Alice McAdory, Director of Admissions, presented admissions data for the Fall 2004 freshman class. The number of applications, the number of admitted and enrolled students, and yield percentages were compared with past year.

Karen Travis, Assistant Vice President and Director for University Events and Licensing, updated the Committee on two events this month that will provide high visibility for the University. She talked about the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new state-of-the-art Engineering and Computational Science Building and informed the Committee that Governor Warner and Secretary of Technology Newstrom are expected to attend.

The evening will culminate with a lecture by Tom Brokaw, news anchor for NBC Nightly News. Both events take place on September 26. Cecelia Tucker, Director of Community Relations, and Ken Gideon, Assistant Director of Licensing and Events Coordinator, briefed the Committee on the second Community Care Day to be held on October 16 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. 29 STUDENT ADVANCEMENT COMMITTEE The Rector called on Ms. Croshaw for the report of the Student Advancement Committee. Ms. Croshaw reported that yesterday the traditional student activities fair, MainStreet, was held on Kaufman Mall. One hundred and fifty-seven organizations spent several hours recruiting new members, listening to music, playing games, eating good food, and having fun. This morning, the Student Advancement Committee attended a sampler of MainStreet and visited with just a few of the 180+ student organizations on campus. Upon entering the room, we realized that a meeting was not in session, but instead, a party was going on. There were students everywhere with colorful displays and food and drink for all. The Student Affairs Committee members were invited to meet these student leaders and talk about their organizations. These organizations included the Black Student Alliance (BSA), Rowing Club, Catholic Campus Ministry, Monarch Maniacs, WODU, Commuter Student Association, Mace and Crown, and many others. These were very enthusiastic young people, and the Committee enjoyed meeting them and hearing about their activities. Ms. Croshaw concluded her report and invited the other Committee members to comment. Ms. Woolsey stated that she was struck with how articulate the students were about their respective organizations. Mr. Batten commented on how impressed he was with the students and that he was pleased to hear about efforts to increase weekend programming. OLD/UNFINISHED BUSINESS The Rector asked if there was any old business to come before the Board. There was none. NEW BUSINESS The Rector asked if there was any new business to come before the Board. There was none, however he did take this opportunity to welcome the four new members to the Board. With no further business to be discussed, the meeting adjourned at 2:40 p.m. 30
