Part of Minutes of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees

-9- The second committee, the on-site committee will visit our campus on April 9-10, 2013 and their duties are to examine our second report, which is called the QEP, the Quality Enhancement Plan. While the committee is reviewing the Compliance Certification Report in November, the University will be polishing the Quality Enhancement Plan and submitting that report in January 2013. Dr. Anderson emphasized to the Board that principle 1.1 is very critical, and that is the principal of integrity. When the Board approves this document in December, President Capilouto and the SACS liaison (Heidi Anderson), also have to sign of`f that is a truthful document. SACS also wants the Board of Trustees to be aware of approximately eleven (11) standards that impact the Board directly. SACS wants every Board to understand the difference between govemance and administration. The Boards govemance roll includes the oversight of establishing and evaluating the policies of the mission, hiring someone to manage the University, the evaluation of that individual, and approving policies and monitoring the University toward success. It is the responsibility of the President and the Presidents team of individuals, to ensure that he or she fulfills these activities. More specifically, in Core Requirement (CR) 2.2, SACS requires that the Board have a goveming body, a certain number of individuals, and that this particular body is an active policy making body. Dr. Anderson pointed out that the Board of Trustees is an active policy making body, as is evidenced by the review of the Goveming Regulations at this meeting. In Comprehensive Standard (CS) 3.1.1, SACS requires that the Board is aware ofthe mission, that the mission should guide the University, and that the mission is reviewed periodically and approved by the Board. In CS 3.2.1, SACS requires the Board to hire one individual who is responsible for all of these particular activities. CS 3.2.2 covers a host of areas over which the Board has control. Dr. Anderson noted three in particular, being the institution mission, fiscal responsibility and institutional policy. CS 3.2.3, 3.2.4, and 3.2.5 state that the Board must adopt certain policies. First is a policy that discusses conflict of interest. In 2004, the Board adopted an ethical and principal code of conduct. That was an example of how the Board is adhering to CS 3.2.3. CS 3.2.4, states that the Board cannot have extemal influence and 3.2.5 requires the Board to have a policy whereby members can be dismissed for appropriate reasons in a fair process. CS 3.2.6 refers to the Boards responsibility to have a clear written distinction between the Board goveming responsibilities and the University administrator responsibilities. Dr. Anderson provided the example of Goveming Regulations and Administrative Regulations oversight that is reviewed and approved. Another example she provided ofthe separate responsibilities from Administration and Faculty, was in 2006, the Kentucky Legislature House Bill 55 passed the smoking cessation policy and asked all Boards in the state of Kentucky to add that particular policy on the campus.
