I. Approval of March 7, 2002, minutes
Minutes for March 7, 2002, were approved

II. Polishing priorities
It was announced that goals for the Service, Community Relations, and Academic Distinction areas are pretty close to completion. Attendees broke into subgroups to continue work on Diversity and Technology goals. The remaining attendees began work on writing the rationale statements for Community Relations and Service groups.
Technology, Service, Community Relations, and Diversity visions were read by each of the groups. It was noted that some are in the conceptual phase. Jeanne asked everyone to send his or her statements to her for distribution to everyone on the committee. It was noted that there is some overlap or synergy that will need to be addressed. Jeanne expressed that the committee's assignment is to get the words to her electronically in time for her to complete her assignment, which is to assemble and distribute them to everyone prior to the next meeting.

The next step will be to look at performance indicators and find those that effectively determine when success is being achieved on the goals.

The following assignment is to communicate with the campus community on the results

III. Envisioning our future
Agenda item tabled in order to complete other items.
