Undergraduate Recruitment and Enrollment for Fall 2005
With the planned opening of the new residence hall in August, Lincoln University is seeking to increase its enrollment for fall 2005.  University faculty and administrators will be recruited to speak to high school students in different venues in an effort to peak interest and encourage their enrollment at Lincoln.  The division of Development and External Relations will attempt to involve the University’s alumni in this effort.  Academic Affairs will engage faculty willing to speak to high school groups on and off campus.

Academic Affairs
With the start of several renovation projects on campus, University Hall and Ware Center will be closed beginning with the fall 2005 semester.  The vice president and deans are developing a plan of action for the best possible utilization of classroom and office space during the shutdown of these buildings.  A sufficient number of trailers will be installed on campus to provide additional needed space.

Student Affairs and Enrollment Management
The number of complaints coming from students regarding heat and hot water is down considerably from previous years.  

There being no further business, President Nelson adjourned the meeting at 11:30 a.m.
