2001 Baccalaureate Service - The recommendation has been made to move the Baccalaureate service to a Sunday in April to allow for greater student participation.  This will not be possible this year as announcements of the May 6, 2001 date have already been printed.  The recommendation will be taken under consideration for next year's service.

Research Proposals - President Nelson stressed that all grant proposals should include student involvement and/or provide opportunities for Lincoln's students.  He suggested that this should be a required component for any proposal approved by the University.
 
PA effort re out-migration of PA's students and professionals - The PA Dept. of Community and Economic Development has asked the University to nominate two students to serve as members of a "Brain Gain Design Team."  The Team will lead the effort to halt the out-migration of PA's students and professionals.  Vice President Bynum will secure the names of Lincoln's student nominees for submission to the Dept. before the April 2, 2001 deadline.
