- 3 - session made available to them. He said that PR 3A represents the final version of the Strategic Plan and, following the meeting, the sector and college/major administrative unit plans are to be developed consistent with the Plan. He then reviewed the format of the Plan and elaborated on the goals, objectives, enabling strategies and strategic indicators. President Wethington commended Joan McCauley, Ed Carter and the staff that worked on the Plan and especially the faculty, staff and students who were involved in looking at the future of the institution. He said that this is a rather concise statement for the University to use in planning activities for the next five years and in allocating its resources. The Plan will be used to determine wherein resources can best be applied to carry out the mission of the University. He recommended the proposed Strategic Plan be approved by the Board. Judge Wilhoit moved approval of the Plan. His motion was seconded by Mrs. Sims. Mr. Chellgren asked if President Wethington envisioned a regular report on the progress of the University in accomplishing the goals or strategic indicators in the Plan. President Wethington said that there would be an annual report and that there would be a comprehensive report to the Board each two years as the University prepares its Biennial Budget Request to go to the General Assembly. Mrs. Weinberg suggested that the Board regularly review the Plan, not to see that the University has made progress on all fronts but to review the status of the progress. President Wethington noted that it would be a rather lengthy process for the chancellors and vice presidents to get their sector and college plans finished. He said that their plans will come back to the Board as a part of the Biennial Budget Request, probably in August or September, 1993. He said, in his opinion, it would be appropriate for a report on the progress to be made to the Board toward the end of 1993-94, prior to July 1, 1994. Governor Breathitt commented that this is a major initiative by the University and the Board will work with President Wethington in monitoring and evaluating the University's progress. Mrs. Plattner encouraged the Board to follow Mrs. Weinberg's suggestion. The Strategic Plan was unanimously adopted. (See PR 3A at the end of the Minutes.) As a final comment about the Plan, President Wethington said that some of the Board members were not on the Board last year when certain requests were made from former Board members concerning the modification of the plans for the institution. He said that he perceived former Board member Wallace Wilkinson's questions to be about retention and graduation rates, accountability and effectiveness, the cost of higher education, and emphasis on
