Student Services Director, for the good job he is doing in the Student Center building. He talked
about the possibility of visiting other campus facilities.
President Capilouto said the first goal for the University is the students.
l\/lr. l\/Liles agreed that it is time to turn things around and show that it is good to raise
capital income that would help everyone in Kentucky.
In conclusion, the Board gave President Capilouto guidelines to begin the process of
transfonning campus. Below are the two priorities that he is to focus on in this transfonnation:
l. Enhance and expand the undergraduate educational experience in terms of student
quality, academic programming, and opportunities for more Kentuckians and
students from other states and backgrounds to learn and grow at the University.
2. Renew and rebuild the core of the nearly l50-year-old campus.
President Capilouto said that there has got to be creativity to have strong affects for the
University across the state. He said he would depend on the Board for further advice. The big
picture is about the state and not just the campus. He said he was extremely excited about the
outcome of the retreat. He would infonn the campus, legislators, and others and start
implementing key elements that he had heard at the retreat. He hoped to report back to the
Board in October.
