The Cabinet approved the minutes of the December 8, 2003 meeting.

The College Board, with the assistance and input of educators across the nation, has created a new SAT test.  The new test contains a mandatory writing section.  In a letter announcing the new test, the College Board stated "…we believe that in due course it will help restore writing to its proper place in a college-preparatory curriculum, on campus, and in all avenues of life.  Few would argue that good writing is not necessary to success in college and beyond."

National Historically Black Colleges and Universities Substance Abuse Consortium (NHBCUSAC)
Lincoln University has executed a "Memorandum of Understand" to facilitate its association with the NHBCUSAC.  The mission of the Consortium is to increase the number of African American Professionals in the field of substance abuse.  The Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management will serve as the University's representative.

Student Affairs and Enrollment Management
Due to the irregularity of the Fall semester, student academic evaluation hearings will not be held for the spring semester.  Students falling within the criteria for academic evaluation will receive a letter, which will be placed in their file.

The Cabinet meeting was adjourned at 10:45 AM.

Diane M. Brown
Assistant to the President
