The Cabinet discussed "The Road to Excellence" for Lincoln University, as outlined by President Nelson.

Academic Affairs
Lincoln University over subscribed for the LSAT Princeton Review.  The University was able to enroll the limit of 29 students for the Review.  The efforts of Dean Judith A.W. Thomas were instrumental in the significant student interest in this area.

Revised Spring 2005 Academic Calendar
The Academic Calendar for the Spring 2005 semester will be changed to reflect a return date of Sunday, January 9, 2005 for students with classes to begin on Wednesday, January 12, 2005.  Finals for all students will be given the week of April 18-21, 2005.

Student Affairs and Enrollment Management
A total of 23 students who were not able to meet their financial obligation have been administratively withdrawn from the University.  The Cabinet will adopt a policy to allow students who are "administratively withdrawn" for failure to meet financial clearance standards to receive prorated tuition, fees, room and board charges for the period of time that they were officially at the University.

There being no further business, President Nelson adjourned the meeting at 12:15 p.m.
