the lack of meeting space, financial aid and the quality of the faculty. She commended all those 
involved for the ongoing freeze of the University's in-state tuition fees. 

The next item on the agenda was the President's Report . President Bulger first thanked 
Interim Chancellor David MacKenzie and his staff for their efforts in hosting today's meeting. 
President Bulger noted that he would seek approval from the Board for the endorsement of 
Marcellette Williams as Interim Chancellor, UMASS Amherst, David MacKenzie, Interim 
Chancellor, UMASS Boston and Jean F. MacCormack, Chancellor, UMASS Dartmouth. He 
then thanked Trustee Moes, Trustee Giblin, and all of the members who served on the Boston 
and Dartmouth Chancellor Search Committees. 

President Bulger informed the Board on the success of the University's Office of Commercial 
Ventures and Intellectual Property (CVIP). In 1995, prior to the adoption of new intellectual 
property policies by the Board and the creation of CVIP, UMASS generated less than $200,000 
of income and ranked 77th in the United States. A new report by the Association for University 
Technology Managers found that the University, with $4.1M in licensing income, ranked 29th in 
the United States among research universities in licensing income in FY 1999. This was the 4th 
highest among all New England universities — exceeded only by Yale, MIT and Harvard. The 
University's licensing income reached $7.4M in FY2000 and $5.5M in the first quarter of 
FY2001. Therefore, it is expected that earnings and national rankings will continue to rise in the 
years ahead. President Bulger then thanked and congratulated faculty across the system, the 
professional staff of CVIP and the General Counsel's Office for the impressive record. 

President Bulger reported that the University co-hosted the first Governor's Executive 
Academy in Worcester last week where over 100 of Governor Cellucci's top policymakers 
gathered to discuss issues such as e-government, the family-friendly workplace, and 
collaboration. 

President Bulger reported that Karin McCarthy has been named Corporate Relations Director 
as the University continues to build strong relationships with the Commonwealth and expands its 
links to Massachusetts businesses. 

President Bulger noted that he would recommend a freeze on tuition and fees. By freezing 
tuition and fees for in-state students for another year, the University is close to having the lowest 
tuition and fees among public New England universities. 

President Bulger then reported that a task force has been set up to conduct a comprehensive 
review of the operations of the Amherst campus which will examine past performance and help 
chart the campus' future course. Chancellor Lazare will chair the taskforce. Members of the 
taskforce will include Chair Fey, Trustees Karam and Mihos, as well as Chancellor 
MacCormack, UMASS Dartmouth, Provost Wagner, UMASS Lowell, and John Cullinane, one 
of Boston's most distinguished civic and entrepreneurial leaders. President Bulger thanked

President Bulger then reported on some of the activities in which the University is involved. 
President Bulger first highlighted the success of the endowed chair initiative. The Legislature 
has appropriated $10 million in matching funds for the University to leverage $13 million in 
private gifts to finance 15 new endowed chairs. The University expects to close on all 15 chairs 
by the end of June. The chairs will be filled by academic stars in engineering, economics, 
English, cancer research, genetics, physics and other fields which will significantly enhance the 
University's reputation. President Bulger acknowledged Joseph Cofield of the Foundation, the 
chancellors, provosts, and deans, and development staff members throughout the University for 
their roles in developing a model for future cross-campus development activity. 

President Bulger then reported that the Boston campus hosted a five-campus Bio-informatics

University students and faculty who are teaching or utilizing bio-informatics, an interdisciplinary 
field that combines computer science, mathematics, statistics and biology. He also reported that 
the Medical School will host an intercampus symposium in the Neurosciences on June 4. The

areas of cross-campus strength in the neurosciences; and stimulate cross-campus research and 
educational efforts in the neurosciences. 

President Bulger then reported on the recognition of the excellence and importance of 
University researchers. A tissue engineering process created by Dr. Charles Vacanti of the 
Medical School and his brother Jay has been named one of the "five patents to watch" by the 
prestigious MIT Technology Review. According to the journal, the discovery, patented with the 
assistance of the Office of Commercial Ventures and Intellectual Property, joined breakthroughs 
by IBM, ProdiGene, Lucent Technologies, and Hewlett Packard as "last year's most intriguing 
and potentially world-changing patents." He then congratulated Chancellor Lazare, the Medical 
School and CVIP for their accomplishment. 

President Bulger then reported that 200 guidance counselors from across the Commonwealth 
gathered at the Dartmouth campus on March 20 for the second annual system-wide "Access to 
Excellence" conference. The purpose of the conference was to offer professional development 
opportunities to guidance counselors, and to expose them to the newest programs at the 
University. He then thanked Kelli Armstrong from Academic Affairs in the President's Office 
and Steve Briggs from the Dartmouth campus for an outstanding job organizing the conference 
and indicated that next year's conference will be held at UMASS Boston.

Ceremony and Reception will be held on June 13 th at the State House and extended an invitation

of Higher Education recently voted to provide tuition waivers to the high school valedictorians 
who enroll in either the University of Massachusetts or in one of the state and community 
colleges. 

President Bulger then reported on UMassOnline. The Chronicle of Higher Education, 
WBUR radio, the Boston Business Journal, and the Mass High Tech Journal have done positive 
reports on UMassOnline in recent weeks. On May 22 nd UMassOnline will join with Nortel

Chair Fey thanked Trustee Laubinger for hosting yesterday's meeting with Trustees and 
student leaders. She then requested the Student Trustee Report, UMASS Amherst . Trustee 
Laubinger first thanked his assistants. . . . Dan Saunders, Michael Boyer and Hannah Fatemi. 
Trustee Laubinger reported that while the University is at crossroads, it is on the verge of 
becoming a great University. 

Trustee Laubinger reported on the basic challenges that the University should be concerned 
with: the budget outlook, deferred maintenance problems, and providing access to excellence for 
students. Trustee Laubinger feels that if the University can reaffirm its commitment to 
students... providing access to excellence, and examining how its resources are spent, it will 
continue to be recognized in the Commonwealth and around the nation as a great place to be a 
student. 

The next item on the agenda was the President's Report . President Bulger began his report 
by thanking Trustee Laubinger for his report. He thanked Mr. Eldridge from the Amherst 
campus for providing the photograph of the September 1 1 candlelight vigil held on the Amherst 
campus. President Bulger expressed his gratitude to the Chancellors for their response given to 
the September 1 1 tragedy. 

President Bulger reported on the $21M gift from Jack and Shelly Blais. The gift was 
presented to the Medical School recently to support the important work being done at the new 
research building to find a cure for cancer and other diseases. President Bulger noted that he 
would seek approval from the Board to grant the wish of Jack and Shelly Blais to have the new 
research building named after Chancellor Lazare. 

President Bulger announced that just last week, a Needham based software firm, the PTC 
Company, created a $100,000 scholarship at the University to memorialize the victims of the 
September 11 tragedy. Proceeds from the fund will be used to assist family members of 
September 1 1 victims attending the University. President Bulger then cited the remarks from 
one of PTC s senior executives, "This company is committed to education, and in particular we 
are interested in public higher education . . .We are aware that UMASS alumni stay in 
Massachusetts and we are aware of the quality of the academic program at the University, 
especially in engineering .... PTC is looking forward to a strong and positive relationship 
with the University of Massachusetts." 

President Bulger reported that Dr. Krishna Vedula of the Lowell campus was named a Mass 
High Tech All-Star for 2001 by the Mass High Tech newspaper. Dr. Vedula is one of the 
University's most valuable players. It is heartening to know that Dr. Vedula is appreciated for 
his efforts to promote engineering and science education at the K-12 level and work with 
companies across Massachusetts ensuring that the University's engineering programs meet their 
needs.

President Bulger reported that the Boston campus Honors Program was awarded 
Commonwealth status by the Board of Higher Education last month. He noted that this is a 
stamp of excellence for a program that, according to the Board of Higher Education evaluation 
team, is "characterized by phenomenal course offerings. . . . and a dedicated and supportive 
faculty working to create new educational opportunity for students." 

President Bulger reported on two recent examples of inter-campus collaboration that are 
advancing the University's mission. First, the inter-campus marine science graduate degrees won 
final approval from the Board of Higher Education last month. Second, the University's four 
undergraduate campuses have developed a system that will guarantee acceptance to the Boston, 
Dartmouth, and Lowell campuses to outstanding students who are not accepted to the Amherst 
campus thereby offering them excellent education opportunities. President Bulger thanked the 
enrollment directors for their efforts on this initiative. 

While the University is faced with many challenges, most of them financial, President Bulger 
indicated that the University should not allow them to dampen its enthusiasm as it pursues 
excellence in education, research, and service for the Commonwealth. President Bulger 
expressed his concern about the current state of the economy. He has great confidence in the 
Commonwealth and the University of Massachusetts as it strives to meet the challenges ahead. 
He believes that the University will emerge stronger than ever thanks to the leadership and 
wisdom present on the campuses and on the Board. 

President Bulger reported on three recent studies: a study by the National Association of 
State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, a study by the University's Donahue Institute 
commissioned by the Governor's Department of Economic Development, and a study by the 
Southern Technology Council entitled "Who will stay and who will leave?" He reported that 
investment in higher education is required in order for the Commonwealth's economic security 
to develop a high-skilled work force. The University of Massachusetts is a wise investment for 
the Commonwealth. 

President Bulger reported that the University must continue to pursue revenue-generating 
programs such as UMassOnline and continuing education, Commercial Ventures and Intellectual 
Property, and private fund raising. 

President Bulger briefly reported on private support. He thanked Trustee Mahoney for 
agreeing to chair the Development Committee. President Bulger reported that Trustee Mahoney 
and UMASS Foundation Vice President and COO Joseph Cofield are fully engaged in efforts to 
bring the campuses together to revisit old friends and make new friends in fundraising efforts.

Board of Trustees 
December 10, 2001 



The next item was the President's Report . President Bulger reported that the 
University has sustained a mid-year $25 million cut in state funding. Because of these 
circumstances the University can no longer maintain a freeze on student charges and 
continue its drive for excellence which depends on continued financial stability. 

- President Bulger reported that he is recommending that the Board immediately 
implement a comprehensive plan to maintain the University's fiscal equilibrium. The 
plan will allow the University to continue to provide access to excellent education for 
60,000 students. The University will continue to assist the most economically challenged 
students finding resources to finance their education. 

The fee adjustment will raise approximately $12 million for the campuses. The 
remaining £13 million will be addressed by strategic cost-cutting measures, re-allocations 
of funds and the reduction of 250 positions over the next several months. The University 
will continue to address private fundraising efforts. 

President Bulger then highlighted the following facts: 

•the University has contained student charges since 1996; 

•the average undergraduate tuition and fee charge at four-year public higher 

education institutions across the nation has risen 34 percent since 1996; 

•following today's action, UMASS students will be paying 2.6 percent more than 

they were in 1996; 

•if the University had increased its charges at only the rate of inflation since 1996, the 

student charge increase would be 14 percent, or over $700; 

•the reputation of the University has risen due to support by the Commonwealth, the 

management of the campuses, improved fundraising efforts and the dedication of the 

faculty and staff; 

•a recent poll indicates that Massachusetts's residents believe the University will 

continue to be an outstanding value; 

•the business community recognizes the economic impact of the University attracting 

$1 billion in research funds to Massachusetts over the last six years. 

President Bulger continued his report by noting that today's proposal will assure the 
long-term quality of the University and will continue to provide students with the 
educational opportunity they deserve and that the pursuit of excellence remains the 
University's top priority. 

Chair Fey then asked the members of the Board to consider Spring Semester 2002 
Mandatory Fees. It was moved, seconded and

University. He indicated that more information would be provided at the Committee of the 
Whole meeting on February 7 th about the collaborative academic work taking place across 
campus lines. Discussion will focus on selected academic partnerships characteristic of the work 
in which faculty and administrators are engaged. 

President Bulger informed the Committee that representatives from the University would be 
participating in the American Association of Higher Education (AAHE) Conference later this 
month. Trustee Moes and Vice President Lenhardt will represent the University at the 
conference to discuss the University's oversight model on post-tenure review policies. The 
AAHE is interested in how post-tenure review policies are managed on university campuses 
nationwide, and has awarded grants to institutions to help the process. The University has 
received two such grants for their efforts. 

The next item was the Vice President's Report . Vice President Botman reported on 
admissions and enrollment management numbers. Freshmen and transfer applications have 
increased steadily over the past four years. In 1997, the University had approximately 27,000 
applications; 31,000 applications were received for Fall 2000. Similarly, transfer student 
applications increased from 7,000 to 8,300. The average GPA and averaged combined SAT 
scores have shown an increase from last year. In 1997, the GPA on the Amherst campus was 
3.09 for incoming freshmen. The average is now 3.33. In addition, in 1997 the average 
combined SAT score for an incoming Boston student was 1,000. The average SAT score is now 
1,046. Overall, first year students are the strongest group academically that the University has 
seen for some time. 

Vice President Botman also informed the Committee that enrollment across the system 
remains stable. However, there has been a slight decrease in graduate enrollment and a slight 
increase in Continuing Education enrollment. The Dartmouth campus has shown enormous 
progress in increasing enrollment. Since 1997, enrollment has gone up dramatically. First-year 
students of color at the University remain at about 18%, a slight drop from 1997 when students 
of color were at 20%. The drop in enrollment is carefully being monitored. First year out-of- 
state student enrollment remains stable at 20%o compared to last year. The campuses are 
reporting that applications are comparable in numbers to previous years. Vice President Botman 
indicated that the application cycle for the 2001 class looks very promising. 

Trustee Lewenberg raised a question on the impact in the change of admissions policy 
addressing enrollment trends of students of color. He also wondered if Trustees could be helpful 
to campuses as they seek to recruit and enroll a diverse student body. After a brief discussion, 
Chair Moes asked that recommendations be brought before the Committee to discuss ways to 
involve Trustees.

Trustee Karam congratulated the President for these recommendations but wondered 
how much longer the University can sustain a high-quality education by keeping tuition 
and fees at the same rate as 1996. He asked the student Trustees to consider going back to 
their respective campuses with this issue. 

Trustee Avakian inquired about the increase for resident graduate students. Mr. 
O'Riordan indicated that there are external pressures to limit increases for in-state 
undergraduate students. The graduate increases are reasonable and offset some of the 
revenue losses associated with this pressure to limit undergraduate charges. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board take the following action: 

In accordance with Section 1A of Chapter 75 of the General Laws, to establish 
and approve tuition at the following rates for the Amherst, Boston, Dartmouth and 
Lowell campuses:

The next item was Policy on Additional Faculty Compensation and Policy on 
Faculty Consulting and Outside Activities . Vice President Lenhardt reported that a 
revised policy on additional faculty compensation would engage faculty in as much activity 
for additional compensation as is consistent with maintaining a satisfactory disposition of 
their full-time obligations to the University as defined by the department chair and the dean 
of their school. 

Vice President Lenhardt continued by reporting that the Faculty Consulting and Outside 
Activities Policy is being amended to preserve the language currently contained in the 
additional compensation policy. 

There was a question directed to General Counsel O'Malley regarding issues related to 
conflicts of interest. These provisions are the University's attempt to deal with these 
issues. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board take the following action: 

To rescind the University's current Policy on Compensation for Certain 
Additional Professional Services (T86-087), 



and further, 



To adopt the Policy on Additional Faculty Compensation as contained in 
Doc. TO 1-0 12, subject to collective bargaining agreements,

conflict, he/she shall disclose the relevant facts to his/her department chair

opinion of the faculty member, proposed employment might involve such 
conflict, he/she shall disclose the relevant facts to his/her department chair 
and dean." 

The next item for discussion was the 10- Year Financial Plans - Update . Vice 
President Lenhardt reported that the President and the members of the senior staff have met 
with the campuses to review their ten-year plans. Because of the transition in leadership at 
three of the campuses the President is not recommending that we bring the plans forward 
for action at this time. Highlights included: the campuses continue to be highly dependent 
on the state appropriation, student fees continue to be a major concern on campuses, we 
need to meet the need of significant wage increases, all campuses are aggressively pursuing 
their capital restoration, repair and maintenance programs. 

Vice President Lenhardt continued by reporting that the Worcester campus has the most 
aggressive plan to turn their investments into long-term support and revenue. The 
endowment incentive program has offered positive support to the University; we have 
raised our cash endowment by 15-20 million dollars but from a fiscal point of view, we 
need to raise more. 

In the current budget request to the state, we continue to ask, in addition to the general 
state appropriation, for increased scholarship aid and for one-time budget support for 
maintenance repair activity and for funds to support the administrative system conversion 
and information technology.

Finally, the campuses are currently evaluating the potential of softening of state 
revenue and are making very difficult choices. 

The next item was the Report on Audits . 

Ms. Opalacz and Mr. Hanley from PricewaterhouseCoopers reported on the 
University's OMB Circular A-133 Audit for 2000 , including the opinions included in the 
report as well as the outcome of the audit. They reported that the audit covered all federal 
financial assistance programs including federal student aid and research grants and 
contracts. 

Trustee Mahoney asked which of the three opinions discussed were important and who 
the users were. He pointed out that more specificity was desired. He also commented on 
the number of recurring findings and questioned why there were so many. 

Chair Dubilo asked that updates on two of the A-133 repeat findings be provided to the 
Committee at its next meeting. The findings to be reported on include the status of cohort 
default rate corrective action plans and the timeliness of FISAP reporting to the federal 
government. 

Mr. Wolcott discussed the annual audit for WFCR-FM and Friends of WFCR, Inc., 
UMASS Amherst, for Fiscal Year 2000 . He noted that the station again received an 
unqualified opinion from the external audit firm and that the required communications 
letter included certain financial information about the station. 

The next item was University Health Services Management Letter, UMASS 

Amherst . Mr. Wolcott then discussed the results of the management letter resulting from 
the annual audit, noting that improvements were observed by the auditors and there were 
no material deficiencies, only items where management's continuing attention was advised. 

The next item was Audit Report - Student Life - Student Affairs ID Trust Fund, 
UMASS Boston . Mr. Wolcott discussed the results of this audit by University Audit staff. 
There were no serious control deficiencies, only items where management's continuing 
attention was advised. 

Trustee Mahoney asked why management's responses did not include timeframes for 
implementing corrective actions. Chair Dubilo directed that decisions made by 
management as a result of audit activity include timelines and be date specific.

The next item was Audit Report - Purchase Card Administration and Control, 

UMASS Lowell . Mr. Wolcott stated that the audit results were quite positive and that 
purchase card usage was in accordance with policy and well controlled by the campus so 
that there were no significant issues to report. 

The next item was Agreed-Upon Procedures Reports KPMG LLP - Intercollegiate 
Athletics Department and Minuteman Court Club, UMASS Amherst . Mr. Wolcott 
reviewed the results of the annual reviews of the athletics programs and the outside booster 
organization. He noted that the work was done to comply with NCAA requirements for 
Division 1 schools and that UMASS Amherst was in compliance with the requirement. He 
also noted that there were no serious program deficiencies found. 

The next item was Three- Year Audit Plan, FY2001, FY2002, FY2003 . Mr. Wolcott 
then presented the department's three-year audit plan. He pointed out that the PeopleSoft 
project would absorb a significant amount of the department's resources for the next few 
years and would be a challenge while continuing regular audit coverage in a fairly 
ambitious plan. He reported that some campus management requested continued audit 
coverage, and related reporting, as a valuable management tool to maintain the control 
environment. 

The next item was University Auditor's Operations Report as of December 29, 
2000 . Mr. Wolcott briefly summarized the department's operations as reported. He noted 
that a major effort was underway to recruit information technology audit professionals to 
deal with the PeopleSoft project as well as other areas where information technology 
auditing can reduce business risk.

included the financial indicator target for each campus' goals to achieve by FY2002. 
Each campus has undertaken a process of reviewing its financial indicators using peer 
information and making projections in the context of campus priorities.

Center will impact on enrollment and recruitment.

Mahoney asked about implementation of corrective actions. 

Ms. Opalacz and Mr. Hanley then reviewed the FY2000 Massachusetts Office of 
State Financial Aid Audit Report . They reported that the audit opinion was qualified 
due to material non-compliance with certain state financial aid requirements. This was 
not considered to be either a material financial item or a significant control weakness. 
Corrective actions were to be taken by the campus involved. 

Ms. Opalacz then informed the Committee that she would be taking a leave of 
absence from her firm and would be replaced by John Gabranski as engagement partner, 
noting that Mr. Gabranski had served in this capacity in prior years so was familiar with

commuter campus character will be preserved, and that the full cost of 
construction and maintenance of such housing units shall be included in 
the rental charge to be paid by the occupants of the units, to the extent 
such charges can bear said costs.

fundraising efforts for the University's intercollegiate athletic program. On July 1, 1991, the 
Development Office introduced the Athletic Fund (UMAF), which represents the entire UMASS 
athletic program. Prior to the inception of the Athletic Fund, the Athletic Department raised a 
total of approximately $106,859 in private contributions, including both restricted and 
unrestricted funds from 588 donors. An estimated $1M has been raised by the UMAF from 
2,071 donors in Fiscal Year 2000. During the first five years, the UMAF has seen tremendous 
growth in terms of the number of donors and dollars raised. The growth is attributed to the 
success of the men's basketball program, the Mullins Center and the introduction of the UMASS 
Priority Point System to establish seat location. Since its inception, the UMAF has raised more 
than $8M. Mr. Nitardy also reported on the present status of the UMAF.

Athletic Director; Mr. Nitardy, Mr. Strickland and Mr. Hodges, Athletic Department 

Chair Mihos convened the meeting at 2:05 p.m. The first item of business was a tour 
of the Amherst Athletic facilities led by Mr. James Patulak. The Committee members 
toured the Football Stadium and the Boyden Building including locker rooms, the pool, 
the Strength and Conditioning Room and several fields. During the tour, the Committee 
members were able to witness the problems with the bleachers at the stadium and the lack 
of space for athletic-related activities. 

At 3:45 p.m. the tour concluded and the meeting was reconvened at the Mullins 
Center. The Committee members met with members of the Consulting Team, 
HNTBArchitecture. Some of the conclusions reached by the Consulting Firm are as 
follows: 

•The Football program at Amherst has proven to be successful. Should the program 
move up to Division 1A status, the University will need to consider augmenting its 
facilities to comply with the standards for operating a NCAA Division 1A football 
program; 

•The existing accommodations, McGuirk Alumni Stadium, are inadequate for a 
Division 1A program: the pressbox does not meet the demand for the writing and 
broadcast media; the scoreboard is antiquated and improvements are needed with seating, 
restrooms, and concessions. 



Athletic Committee 
July 16, 2001 



The Consultants also explored the idea of stadium expansion and included three 
different scenarios (Schemes A, B, and C can be found in the Executive Summary.) The

games as well as naming rights to help raise funds. 

The discussion then focussed on the need to improve all of the current athletic 
facilities. Trustee Laubinger voiced his support for a new and improved recreation 
facility; there had been an informal survey conducted on the topic and students were 
supportive. 

There was also a discussion about the possibility of a student fee to support a new 
structure. The cost would be approximately $3 10.00 per student, per year. 

There was a question about plans to renovate the stadium; Chancellor Williams would 
consult with Physical Plant about the status of such a project. 

Chair Mihos then announced the Committee would enter Executive Session to 
consider issues related to Real Estate . 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To enter into Executive Session for the purpose of considering issues 
related to Real Estate .

The first item on the agenda was University Performance Measurement System - 
2001 Report on Annual Indicators . Under the Chair's Report Chair Fey thanked 
everyone for being here, and especially thanked Chancellor Hogan and his staff for the 
hospitality they have shown to the Board. 

Chair Fey reported that in years past the Chancellors have stood up - one by one - to 
present their perspective on the performance of their particular campus within the context 
of the Performance Measurement System. This year we are trying a new format that will 
encourage a give-and-take between the Board, Chancellors, President, and vice 
presidents. 

The new format will highlight how different campuses respond to similar challenges 
and opportunities and the real-life impacts of campus performance on the ability of 
students, faculty, and staff to excel at what they do. 



Committee of the Whole 
May 1, 2001 



Chair Fey reported that the University is five years into the Performance 
Measurement System. There is a new Chancellor in place, another on the way and a 
search for another about to begin as well as a President beginning his second five years. 
These factors provide an opportunity to make significant advances in teaching, research 
and outreach. 

Under the President's Report President Bulger expressed his appreciation to the 
Trustees, Chancellors, their staffs, and the members of his staff who have worked so hard 
to design the performance measurement system and implement it. 

President Bulger reported that today's discussion would help to focus attention on the 
most critical questions that face us today: 

•How have chancellors, as the CEOs of their campuses, used performance 
measurement as a management tool to improve the quality of their campuses? 

•How have we all been able to use performance measurements as a catalyst to 
make improvements in teaching, research, fundraising, admissions, facilities, and 
financial aid? 

Vice Presidents Botman and Lenhardt began the question and answer period with a 
brief explanation of today's item. 

The Performance Management System was adopted by the Board in 1997; its intent is 
to assess the performance of the University with ten broad objectives. The Performance 
Measurement System has three major components: the report on annual indicators, 
periodic reports and studies and a system for academic program quality assessment and 
development. 

This report on Annual Indicators is the fourth such report to be reported to the Board. 
The indicators represent campus- wide information that is updated on an annual basis. 
Today's report focuses on Objective 2 through 10: 

•to promote student access and affordability 

•to recruit qualified undergraduate and graduate students 

•to promote student success 

•to pursue theoretical and applied research, scholarship, and creative activity 

•to ensure cost-effective use of resources 

•to maximize fundraising from private sources. 

The Medical School has developed a separate report due to its unique mission.

Committee of the Whole 
May 1, 2001 



Each objective shows the current status, peer comparison, target, the context and key 
considerations. 

Following a question and answer period about the Indicators, Chair Fey asked that 
Board members with topics for future discussions at Committee of the Whole meetings 
notify Secretary DeVico for inclusion on future COTW agendas. 

The next item was Worcester City Campus Corporation . Deputy Chancellor 
Stanton reported that the University Board serves as the sole corporate member for 
Worcester City Campus Corporation. The member annually appoints the WCCC Board 
and is required to approve any changes to the Articles. 

With the present capital financing, a revisions of the Articles detailing its relationship

Today's meeting has the Board in their role as sole member of WCCC approving the 
change in the WCCC Articles and reappointing the WCCC Directors. 

It was moved, seconded and

Fiscal and Management Initiatives: Administrative Systems - PeopIeSoft 
Conversion . He introduced the speakers: Deputy Chancellor Stanton, UMASS

project. Other higher education systems are attacking the problem in much the same

for class sharing that comes with it. Collaboration is the key to obtaining success.

while providing public goods. The success of today's initiatives will depend on the 
University's willingness to accept change that will bring growth opportunities. 

President Bulger also offered his support for today's initiatives; the University will 
continue to pursue revenue-generating programs such as UMassOnline and CVIP as well 
as private fund-raising measures. 

The first discussion item on the agenda was Revenue Generated by Commercial 
Ventures and Intellectual Property: Performance to Date and Future Prospects . 

Vice President Chmura began his report by thanking John Hoey and Joseph McGuirl. 

Some of the highlights of the presentation included: 



Committee of the Whole

•CVIP provides alternative revenue sources, economic development and benefits to 

society; 

•UMASS will manage intellectual property as a strategic asset; 

•revenue will be used towards research facilities, faculty recruitment and retention 

and CVIP operations. 

Vice President Chmura provided examples of activities on the campuses:

CVIP was established as a University function; substantial revenue generated at 
Worcester; the best revenue potential is in life sciences and the potential for the largest 
gain will come from the Amherst campus. 

Vice President Chmura, looking ahead, reported on the need to be realistic about 
revenue generated outside Worcester, recognize multiple campus objectives for CVIP, 
refine the CVIP model to provide greater campus flexibility, strengthen capacity and 
establish performance targets.

Chair Mahoney convened the meeting at 11:10 a.m. 

Following introductions, Chair Mahoney asked for a discussion about the Review of 
the Top Prospects for the Five Campuses . Chair Mahoney indicated that the 
University's fund-raising efforts could be improved once the campuses realize their 
potential. Some of the ideas that need to be discussed include adding Trustees and/or 
other private citizens to this Committee and organizing a list of the University's wealthy 
friends and would-be donors. We need to focus on the top 100 prospects and formulate a 
strategy about the best way to reach them. 

President Bulger announced that the Medical School has accepted a $21 million gift 
from Framingham entrepreneur Jack and Shelly Blais; most of the funding will go 
towards cancer research which will be conducted at the new Medical Research Building. 
It is anticipated that the Blais' contribution will encourage more donations to the 
University. The Blais' gift will allow the Medical School to hire 100 researchers and 



Development Committee 
October 24, 2001 

1000 staffers. The Blais' have requested that the Research Building be named in honor 
of Chancellor Lazare. 

President Bulger thanked everyone for attending today's meeting, Trustee Mahoney, 
in particular for his work with this Committee. The President has emphasized to 
Governor Jane Swift that the University is trying to help itself and that a smaller 
percentage of public higher education colleges across the country are relying on state 
dollars. 

President Bulger then departed the meeting for a press conference at the State House 
announcing the gift to the Medical School. 

Chair Mahoney distributed a blank list titled "UMASS Top 100 Prospect Donors" and 
asked the Development Officers to fill them in with their top prospects willing to donate 
between $250,000-500,000. The names should also be coded according to their 
willingness to give: Amherst (30), Dartmouth, Lowell and Boston (15 each), and 
Worcester (25). It was suggested that the Committee meet again in November to "brain 
storm" including the sharing of ideas to best contact the top prospects. Some of those 
ideas include dinners with the President, invitations to sporting events, etc. 

Following a question from Trustee Naughton about an overlapping of names, Chair 
Mahoney indicated that he would be keeping track of the names and doesn't expect much 
overlapping 

Chair Mahoney continued that the Development Committee would meet again in 
December to discuss action plans and expects a quarterly report on campus action plans. 
It was also agreed that we should focus on individuals rather than corporations at this 
time. 

The next item was the President's Participation in Annual Fund Appeal . There 
was discussion about the need to use President Bulger and his good name to attract 
attention. There should be test mailings as well as phone calls. Ms. Wilson will work on 
ways to request money from donors. There was also talk about a database to keep track 
of donors. Mr. Rizzo from the Lowell campus indicated that his campus could not afford 
a database at this time. 

Chair Mahoney inquired about soliciting funds from the parents. The campuses 
indicated that this is being done except for the Lowell campus. It was also suggested the 
University create a "President's Club". Ms. Wilson agreed to work out the logistics for 
such a club. 

The next item was Trustee Participation in Annual Fund Appeal . There was a 
lengthy discussion about the role Trustees should play in fund-raising efforts. Some of 
the ideas included having Trustees call prospective donors and/or thanking donors for 
their efforts. It was noted that Trustees are becoming increasingly frustrated with current 



. 



Development Committee 
October 24, 2001 

fund-raising efforts. It was agreed that Trustees need to take a larger role in fund-raising 
efforts whether it be in the solicitation process or possibly become contributors as well. 

Chair Mahoney reminded the Committee that Trustee members are very busy people 
and we must make proper use of their time. Chair Mahoney will discuss with the 
Trustees their potential roles in these efforts. 

- Mr. Rizzo requested that the Committee meet on the different campuses. Chair 
Mahoney would think about this idea. 

During the item Campus Fundraising Goals for 2001-2002 , a lengthy discussion 
ensued about "gifts in kind" and how campuses should be held responsible for goals that 
are set. Chair Mahoney indicated the need for a goal-setting plan that will produce 
results. 

Chair Mahoney then asked that the Committee meet during the last week in 
November for a "brainstorming" session. He requested that each campus bring three or 
four ideas to aid in greater fund raising efforts. 

There being no further business, the Committee adjourned at 1 :40 p.m.
