President's Cabinet Meeting
September 20, 2004
9:00 a.m.

Attendees:  President Ivory V. Nelson, Vice President Michael B. Hill, Vice President Grant D. Venerable, Vice President Howard E. Merlin, Vice President William B. Bynum, Dean John O. Chikwem, Dean Judith A.W. Thomas, Dean Gladys J. Willis and Ms. Diane M. Brown.

Minutes of September 7, 2004 Cabinet meeting were approved.

Academic Affairs
The Academic Deans have been asked to develop a mock schedule of classes for fall 2005 that does not include the use of Ware Center or University Hall.  It is expected that these two facilities will be off-line for renovations.  The mock schedules will be developed with the assistance of the Registrar.

The Cabinet approved the name change of the Instructional Media Center to "Academic Technology Support Center" (ATSC).  The new name reflects more accurately the current state of technology and the dramatically changed nature of services provided by the Center, and is in line with standard practice nationwide.

Fiscal Affairs
The Lincoln University Payroll Advance Policy has been revised to provide eligible University employees with funds in the event of unforeseen personal circumstances.  An eligible employee will be permitted only two salary advances in a 12-month period.

Student Affairs and Enrollment Management
The division was commended for the very fine newsletters recently published by the Department of Public Safety and the Athletics Department, and distributed to the campus via electronic mail.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 12:30 p.m.

Diane M. Brown
Assistant to the President
