Young staff M. Monticino, H. Cairns, D. Chandler, N. Gordon, C. Ryan guests Adam Hasley, Brenda Sims, Max Toy welcome Meeting called to order (L. Brinkley) UNT/CAS Review (M. Monticino) • CAS Status Report • CAS Resource Priorities discussion Moving forward, CAS is looking at how we define and deliver value to our students. This includes where we choose to trim and focus to meet demands and fulfill our path towards being a national research institution. Despite budget constraints, the College is continuing to make strategic investments including lecturers who are focused solely on teaching (versus tenure track professors who have a research commitment). Questions were raised about the quality of these lecturers. All lecturers are still very qualified (found in national searchers, go through full interviews). There was also a discussion about several classes that can be a metric of a student’s overall success at UNT, including introductory history, Math 1100 and English composition courses. CAS is exploring putting prominent, qualified regents professors in teaching these large lectures. A question was raised about what attracts these lecturers to UNT. The overall location of the university, the fact that we’re hiring, and the growing reputations of our programs are all attracting factors.

6

Jay asked about how we measure the quality of our faculty, including lecturers and professors. Dean Monticino answered by showing a graphic of our several faculty statistics of UNT in relation to other averages. We look at citations in peer reviewed journals, but there is a growing effort to review promotion and tenure data and push our faculty towards publishing in more prominent journals.


discussion Bob asked about efforts for CAS to collaborate either in between continued departments or with other colleges. CAS is working on this as we look at cluster opportunities. Currently, our cluster hires should have stakes in multiple departments and sometimes even multiple colleges. Denny asked about UNT’s efforts to reduce time to graduation. CAS is working to address this goal through curriculum reviews, looking for bottlenecks and working on more efficient advising. Profiles • Adam Hasley • Brenda Sims, Chair of the Department of Linguistics & Technical Communication • Gabriella Draney, Board Member FY12 Board Objective Annual Review (L. Brinkley) • Progress Thus Far • What’s To Be Done Next Quarter • Enhance board membership • Expand CAS network • Engage in development discussion Larry reviewed the board objectives, including the goal to increase board membership which added seven new board members over the past year. action items CAS will continue to grow our networks, for both the board and the action team as we move into the capital campaign. All board members are asked to think about their own spheres of influence. Dean Monticino will continue to meet with board members to discuss prospective board members and future partnerships. CAS will continue to look at what skills are needed and what industries are represented across our board in order to build out an advisory board with comprehensive experience and industry connections.

minutes – may 19 CAS Capital Campaign Goals & Board Expectations (B. Sherman) discussion Bob provided capital campaign materials to all of the board members. He gave a review of the initial steering committee meeting and the CAS Action Team meeting, including an introduction of all action team members. Bob also reviewed the transformative initiatives in brief, and asked each board member to familiarize themselves with them and provide feedback. Bob also introduced the Endow Now initiative, which is designed to bring the endowment of our scholarships up to $25,000 each. Bob asked each board member to review the Endow Now catalog and select a scholarship that resonated with them and make a pledge to complete its endowment. action items Nissa will coordinate with the board members to host a field trip to show off the transformative initiatives. Each board member has been asked to select a scholarship and pledge to fulfill it by the end of the capital campaign in 2015. As CAS continues to develop additional campaign materials, we will send them directly to the board members. Recap, Discussion and Action Items (M. Monticino) Upcoming Events and Adjourn (L.
