Campus Heating
All University buildings will be heated with the use of temporary boilers until the main heating system is repaired.  The University will not be utilizing the portable propane units previously proposed.  The temporary boilers will provide a safe and reliable form of heat.

In response to student needs, classrooms on the first floor of Dickey Hall and at least two classrooms on the second floor will remain unlocked and available for students to study between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.

Student Affairs & Enrollment Management
The Division is taking steps to ensure that our undergraduate students are given every opportunity to financially clear and remain at the University.  It will be necessary to administratively withdraw some students due to their inability to attain an established level of financial clearance.  Those unable to meet the criteria will be asked to vacate their living space and cease attending classes.

Graduate students must make arrangements to clear all financial obligations to the University by October 31st or be administratively withdrawn.

The Cabinet meeting was adjourned at 12:00 PM.

Diane M. Brown
