Dennis Nunes presented the Graduate Studies white paper with plans to expand graduate programs. The committee was asked to consider the white paper and respond at the November 9, 2000, meeting.

External Relations Committee proposal for a regional institute was briefly presented by Arthur Mehrhoff. He asked for time to elaborate at a future meeting.

Mary Soroko presented a model gleaned from a recent conference to possibly assist in setting key performance indicators. Discussion of various models and goal setting followed. Quality models being considered at MnSCU were discussed, including AQIP (the NCA quality program) and the Baldrige quality model. Much of the discussion centered on whether the models are appropriate for SCSU. Additional information (articles) on the two models will be provided at the next meeting. The KPI brainstorm was tabled until the November 9th meeting.
