The next item on the agenda was the President's Report . President Bulger first thanked 
Professor May and Mr. Georgianna for their reports. He expressed his gratitude to Chancellor 
MacCormack and her staff for their hospitality. 

President Bulger commended the Dartmouth campus for the outstanding work it is doing 
throughout the southeastern region. The campus is on the move. The Marine Sciences 
Laboratory, the Advanced Technology Manufacturing Center, and the New Bedford Performing 
and Visual Arts Center are all evidence of the campus' growing importance to southeastern 
Massachusetts. UMASS Dartmouth is a shining example of the important role that a University 
can play in a regional economy. If southeastern Massachusetts is to become a full partner in the 
innovation economy of the Commonwealth, UMASS Dartmouth must continue its momentum. 

President Bulger then reported on other collaborative efforts throughout the system. He 
reported on the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology. 
Graduates will receive a joint degree from the Boston, Dartmouth, Lowell and Worcester 
campuses. The program will position the University and its graduates to play leading roles in the 
development of industries that are critical to the future of Massachusetts. The Board will be 
asked to approve the University's second intercampus program. President Bulger thanked the 
campuses and the President's Office staff for their leadership on the program. 

President Bulger reported that UMassOnline recently launched an advertising campaign that 
generated a record number of visits to its web site. He reported that the University's enrollment 
and admissions working group meets regularly to find new ways to recruit students. 

President Bulger reported that the five campuses recently signed an agreement with the 
United States Navy laboratories in California. The agreement, which resulted from the 
leadership of Dr. Paul Kostecki of the Amherst campus, enables the University and the Navy to 
share with research and teaching expertise in the fields of marine and environmental sciences, 
engineering, and public health. It creates tremendous and meaningful learning opportunities for 
the students and the faculty. President Bulger noted that creative, meaningful, and tactful 
collaboration continues to be a top goal of the University.

search firm. In September, Chancellor Lazare presented the findings of a report on the 
Amherst campus - this provided the Search Committee with information about the 
challenges and opportunities the next Chancellor will face.

received to eight candidates. From the eight candidates, the Committee presented the

Board of Trustees 
May 1, 2002 

She reported on student concerns around the budget crisis and the school/hospital relationship. 
Trustee Lennes reported on the campus' 5 th place ranking as one of the best medical schools in 
the nation by U.S. News and World Report. She reported that most of the student body is 
positioned for service in the healthcare system throughout the Commonwealth. Trustee Lennes 
concluded her report by reciting the class oath. The oath states the goals for medical students to 
become positive members of the healthcare community. 

Chair Fey then called on Ferd Wulkan, SEIU Local 509. In the absence of Mr. Wulkan, 
Justin Cobb reported to the Board. Mr. Cobb reported on the "Save UMASS" campaign. He 
then reported on status of the Resident Assistants on the Amherst campus. 

Chair Fey then called on Dr. Sandy Marks, UMASS Worcester. Dr. Marks highlighted the 
concerns of faculty with the proposal of the new Tenure Definition Policy.

Politics program hosted by Judy Woodruff later in the afternoon. She indicated that President

The next item on the agenda was the President's Report . President Bulger began by 
welcoming the new Trustees. He reported that the Worcester campus, had again, been honored 
as one of the very best medical schools in the nation by U.S. News and World Report. It is 
ranked 5 th among 125 medical schools in the increasingly competitive "Primary Care" schools 
category, and number one on the East Coast. President Bulger expressed his gratitude to

prime example of an excellent education at the University. 

President Bulger updated the Board on the state budget issue. The University's appropriation

expressed his gratitude to Speaker Finneran and the House Ways and Means Committee for 
having completed one of the most difficult tasks required of public leaders. 

President Bulger reported that the University will participate in the beginning stages of the 
budget process by continuing to make a compelling, factual case to the Legislature and the 
citizens of the Commonwealth that every public dollar invested in the University generates a 
priceless return for Massachusetts. The University will continue to argue that the promise of 
educational opportunity made in the 1993 Education Reform Act should be an assurance of 
opportunity at the higher education level. Otherwise, the value of the billions of dollars spent on 
K-12 education will fade quickly. 

President Bulger provided the Board with copies of an article entitled, "From the Field: The 
Knowledge Sector in Massachusetts." The article, skillfully researched and written by Professor

Robert Nakosteen of the Amherst campus and Dr. Michael Goodman of the Donahue Institute, 
will be published this week in the University's economic journal, Massachusetts Benchmarks. 
The article is accompanied by an analysis written by Professor Ralph Whitehead of the Amherst 
campus on the impact of the 4-year degree on the earnings of Massachusetts' citizens. 

President Bulger thanked the members of the Board for advocating on behalf of the 
University. Their leadership has been essential and effective in spreading the message about the 
value of the University to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

President Bulger then thanked Chancellor Williams and expressed his gratitude for the work 
she has done since taking over the leadership of the Amherst campus on July 1, 2001. 
Chancellor Williams has been steadfast in her determination to maintain high standards, always 
displaying a confident spirit in the face of adversity. 

President Bulger reported that Robert Marcum, Athletic Director for the Amherst, campus is 
announcing his retirement. For nearly a decade, Mr. Marcum has been able to achieve 
"excellence." Under his distinguished, careful leadership, the UMASS Amherst Division 1 
athletic program has achieved excellence on the playing fields, and its student-athletes have 
performed with distinction in the classroom. The UMASS Amherst athletic program has been 
* recognized as a national leader when it comes to placing female athletes on a level playing field 

with their male counterparts, and the program has won numerous plaudits with respect to the 
academic performance of its dedicated athletes. Mr. Marcum leaves behind an athletic program 
that U.S. News and World Report has described as being one of the 20 best in the nation. Mr. 
Marcum' s accomplishment will be honored through the University's commitment to continued 
excellence. 

On behalf of the Board, Chair Fey expressed gratitude to Chancellor Williams for an 
outstanding job. She then introduced a resolution to honor Chancellor Williams' contribution to 
the University.

and Board of Trustees to serve as interim Chancellor of the University of 
Massachusetts Amherst, effective July 1, 2001; and

Board . 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the April 17 and May 1, 2002 meetings of the Board. 

Under the Chair's Report Chair Fey thanked Chancellor Hogan for his hospitality. She 
also reported that President Bulger and Chancellor Lazare were absent from today's meeting due 
to University business. 

Chair Fey commended President Bulger for his position during the recent budget process. 
Also of note was the success of the Alumni Evening at the Pops this past June. Some of the 
highlights included the honoring of Lowell alumnus, Roy Zuckerberg, the presence of UMASS 



Board of Trustees 
August 7, 2002 

students at the event, the performance by the Boston Pops, the President's recitation of the 
Gettysburgh Address and House Speaker Thomas Finneran addressing the pre-concert reception. 

Chair Fey then introduced the new student Trustees: William Powers, UMASS Amherst, 
Heather Dawood, UMASS Boston, Rosalyn Lankowski, UMASS Lowell. An election for a new 
student trustee from the Dartmouth campus is scheduled for the fall. Trustee DeFaria from the 
Worcester campus was absent. 

Chair Fey then read a statement from President Bulger which included a welcome to the new 
student Trustees and a nod to the Lowell campus for their track record of success in facing 
current challenges. Chancellor Hogan, the faculty, staff and students deserve praise for 
transforming the Lowell campus over the past several years. 

Also included in President Bulger's report was a mention of the disappointment felt by 
people at the University affected by the recession that has enveloped the Commonwealth. He 
pointed out the ways the Legislature and the Governor have helped: funding the Commonwealth 
Honors College in Amherst, the Advanced Technology Manufacturing Center in Fall River, the 
Star Visual Arts Store in New Bedford, the Toxic Use Reduction Institute in Lowell and the $2 
million for endowed chair matching funds. 

The report continued with the news that the Legislature has sent a capital improvement bill to 
the Governor that includes $77 million for the University that will help make critical investments 
on the University's facilities. The University is on stable financial ground with help from the 
campuses, the Chancellors, the Board members and the Governor and Legislature. 

Chair Fey introduced Trustee Lankowski to give the Student Trustee Report, UMASS 
Lowell . Trustee Lankowski reported on the many reasons for attending the Lowell campus. The 
staff loves what they are doing and there is a sense of belonging. Despite the problems due to 
the budget crisis, the students continue to receive support from the staff and Chancellor Hogan. 

Chair Fey then introduced three speakers that had asked to address the Board concerning 
contract issues: Tony Koumantzelis, UMASS Lowell, Diane Dujon, UMASS Boston and Daniel 
Georgianna, UMASS Dartmouth. At issue was the Legislature's failure to override a veto by the 
Governor for UMASS contracts, which would have given employees raises ranging from 2.5 to 5 
percent. 

Professor Georgianna discussed the recent Boston Globe article attacking Professor Ronald 
Story from the Amherst campus and asked that President Bulger and the Board members support 
Professor Story. 

Chair Fey thanked the speakers for their remarks.

working toward their degrees.

themselves to be an impressive group of speakers.

Trustee Mahoney continued by noting the need to become increasingly aggressive and 
creative in the way the University raises money in the coming years. Currently, we are planning 
to have President Bulger along with Chancellor Hogan reach out to 50,000 Lowell alumni.

In conclusion, the University has raised nearly $480 million from private sources over the

Report. 



members of the Governance Committee had lengthy discussions regarding Vice Chairs. It was 
determined that it would be inconsistent with the notion of unlimited terms to create a succession 
plan from Vice Chair to Chair because of the unlimited term of the office for Chair. A vice 
chairmanship that serves in an ambassadorial role is more desirable and helpful to the Chair. 

The Committee also agreed that there should be a process for identifying interests of 
Trustees. There is a great deal of talent on the Board and there should be an effort to explore 
ways to determine models that would improve the performance of the Board. 

It was moved, seconded and

Board of Trustees 
August 7, 2002 



VOTED : To confirm and approve the Officers and Committee Chairs of the Board of 
Trustees set forth in Doc. T02-042, all to serve until the next annual meeting of 
the Board. 

The next item was Amendments to the University of Massachusetts Purchasing Policy 
and Land and Facilities Use Planning Policy . General Counsel O'Malley reported that the 
FY2003 state budget, Chapter 184 of the Acts of 2002, Line Item 7000-0200, granted the 
University the authority to enter into leases of real property without prior approval of the 
Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAM). The proposed vote would 
bring the existing University policies in line with this new authorization in a manner that would 
allow the University to take advantage of the flexibility it offers. 

General Counsel O'Malley also noted that long-term leases would still require Board 
approval. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : Pursuant to the authority of Chapter 184 of the Acts of 2002 to amend the 
University of Massachusetts Purchasing Policy, Doc. T92-031, Appendix A, as 
revised, in Section IV, under Delegation of Purchasing Authority , by striking 
from subsection (c) the following language: - with specific Board of Trustees and 
the Division of Capital Planning and Operations (DCPO) approval. 



And further. 



To amend the University of Massachusetts Land and Facilities Use Planning 
Policy, Doc. T93-122, as amended, 

(1) by striking the second paragraph under DISPOSITION OF REAL 
PROPERTY and inserting in place thereof the following: 

When a proposed use involves a long-term lease or transfer of land to a non- 
University person or organization, final review and approval by the President and 
Board of Trustees is required in addition to the necessary campus approvals. The 
President may approve short-term leases of five years or less; 

(2) by inserting before the word "lease" in the first line of the third paragraph the 
following: - long term; 

and (3) by striking from the fourth paragraph the words, "long-term lease or", and 
replacing the terms Division of Capital Planning and Operations or DCPO 
wherever they appear with Division of Capital Asset Management and 
Maintenance or DCAM, respectively.

Board of Trustees 
November 6, 2002 



Chair Fey announced the reactivation of the Adopt A Campus program. The program is 
designed to give Board members an up-close and personal view of the University's campuses. 
Chair Fey announced that a letter providing further details and Trustee campus assignments will 
be sent out in the near future. 

Chair Fey introduced Trustee Powers who gave the Student Trustee Report, UMASS 
Amherst . Trustee Powers began by welcoming the Trustees to the campus. He reported that the 
Trustees have the privilege and responsibility of providing an excellent and affordable higher 
education to the Commonwealth. As a whole, the Board looks to visit the future of the 
University and to improve the excellence it adds to the Commonwealth. Trustee Powers 
challenged the Board to make change and progress in the operations of the University to better 
serve the students and the Commonwealth. 

He continued by reporting on a number of academic issues. 

• student academic needs; 

• PeopleSoft system; 

• campus safety; 

• regulation of student fees; 

• adequate funding of programs. 

Trustee Powers then thanked the Trustees for the opportunity to serve on the Board. 

Chair Fey announced that three speakers would address the Board concerning contract issues. 
She introduced Professor Story, President of the Massachusetts Society of Professors. 

Professor Story thanked Chair Fey for allowing the speakers to present petitions from across 
the UMASS System to President Bulger. The multi-campus petitions have been signed by 
thousands of UMASS employees, students, and friends urging President Bulger to join in the 
effort to persuade Speaker Finneran to permit a vote to override Governor Swift's veto of the 
previously approved raises. Professor Story reported that within the UMASS community 
"bitterness, anger, frustration, and demoralization have been made worse by the sense that our 
own institutional leaders have failed to act on our behalf." 

Ms. Johnson, President, USA/MTA called on the Trustees to work with the campuses to 
develop ways to address the crisis of a shrinking workforce and escalating demands on staff. 
She indicated the two important ways to help are funding the contracts and back-filling positions 
lost to retirement. She reported on the University's responsibility to make UMASS the best 
institution in the state, to provide adequate resources for students, faculty and staff, and to fight 
for the contracts. 



Board of Trustees 
November 6, 2002 



Mr. Coish, President, Local 509, SEIU reported on the low morale of the campuses due to the 
current economic crisis, the dissatisfaction with UMASS leadership, and Governor Swift's veto. 
He then presented President Bulger with the signed petitions. 

Chair Fey thanked the speakers for sharing their views on what is a very difficult situation. 
Although the Board completely supports the funding of the contracts, economic and fiscal forces 
beyond the University's control are delaying the increases. The Board and President Bulger 
want to see the contracts funded and will advocate for it. 

The next item was the President's Report . President Bulger thanked Chair Fey and 
welcomed the newest Trustees to the Board. The perspective, experience and talent they bring to 
the Board are highly valuable to the University. 

President Bulger thanked Chancellor Lombardi and his staff for their hospitality. He 
congratulated the campus for winning a $12 million grant to support polymer research. The 
victory is dramatic evidence of the amazing research activities taking place on the campus. 
Across Massachusetts there is growing recognition that the University is central to the economy 
and worthy of public and private support. 

President Bulger reported on a panel discussion entitled "Positioning Massachusetts for 
Recovery." The panel discussion held on October 10 th featured leaders of several economic 
policy groups. Michael Olivieri, a UMass Lowell alumnus, and publisher of the Boston Business 
Journal moderated the panel discussion. Economic leaders agreed that higher education, in the 
form of both teaching and research, is a cornerstone of the Massachusetts economy and requires 
smart investment if Massachusetts is to retain its competitive edge. 

President Bulger also reported that on October 10 th , five leading CEOs of Massachusetts 
companies: Ray Stata of Analog Devices, Michael Ruettgers of EMC, George Chamillard of 
Teradyne, Corrinne Johnson of GE Aircraft, and Sam Thier of Partners Health Care, released a 
letter to the two major gubernatorial candidates advocating for a science and technology-based 
economic development strategy. Accelerating the development of the UMass system as a 
leading-edge technology university was among the suggestions in their letter. 

President Bulger reported that on October 30 a meeting was held to inform over 100 
Massachusetts life sciences industry executives about partnering opportunities available 
throughout the University. Many executives expressed a desire to engage their companies with 
the University's scientists. The event received statewide newspaper coverage. Tom Sommer, 
President of MassMedic, told the Associated Press: "What's coming out of UMass is as high 
quality as what's coming out of MIT, Harvard, and Worcester Polytechnical." Tom Hubbard of 
the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative said, UMASS is the "lynchpin of creating new 
technologies, new jobs, new industries, in different parts of the state. If the future for the Pioneer 
Valley is to get more life science jobs, UMASS Amherst is it." 



Board of Trustees 
November 6, 2002 



President Bulger reported that the University has recently reached some very important 
science-related milestones. The Intercampus Graduate School of Marine Sciences and 
Technology officially accepted its first cohort of students this fall. On November 4 th President 
Bulger was joined by Massachusetts Secretary of Environmental Affairs Robert Durand, to 
announce the creation of the Massachusetts Marine Fisheries Institute. The institute, funded 
almost entirely with state and federal funds, is a partnership of the Commonwealth's Division of 
Marine Fisheries and the Intercampus Graduate School of Marine Science and Technology. Its 
mission will be to protect and manage the state's fisheries, which sustain a $2 billion industry 
that employs 80,000 people in Massachusetts. The collaboration will provide new and exciting 
research opportunities for faculty and learning opportunities for students. 

President Bulger reported that the commercial ventures and intellectual property program set 
another record last year by earning nearly $ 1 5 million in licensing revenue. The University is 
now among the top 25 universities in this area. He also reported that the University is off to a 
good start for the year thanks to higher than projected sales of the new allergy medicine 
Clarinex, which was developed by Medical School scientists. 

President Bulger then addressed the collective bargaining issue. He understands the 
employees' frustration. But given the existence of a national and regional economic crisis, the 
Commonwealth has been unable to appropriate the funds needed to fund the contracts. For the 
Governor and the Legislature, coping with the economic crisis has meant cutting in many areas. 
President Bulger went on to report that The Boston Globe had recently noted more than $500 
million in cuts from vital human service programs. The amount of money that has been cut from 
human service programs only slightly exceeds the entire appropriation the University receives 
from the state. He noted that many other public universities are facing similar challenges. 

President Bulger is confident that the Commonwealth will reward the University when it is 
able to do so. He is also confident that faculty and staff will continue making the idea of a great 
university an enduring reality.

Committee on Academic and Student Affairs 
April 23, 2002 

Chair White introduced the first discussion item Faculty Recruitment and Retention . Vice 
President Botman reminded the Committee that faculty form the core of higher education 
institutions. The University continues to search for outstanding faculty who will make significant 
contributions in teaching, research, creative activity, and service. The world of higher education 
has changed over the last 20 years all across the United States. There are fewer tenured-track 
and tenured positions in many fields, especially in the special sciences and the humanities. 

Vice President Botman reported on the differences between tenured track and non-tenured 
track faculty. The composition of the University's faculty has changed during the last decade. 
The percentage of faculty with tenure or on tenure track has declined. System-wide, the number 
of tenured faculty has declined by 234, a 12% decrease. Full-time non-tenure track faculty 
increased by 87, or 56%. Part-time faculty has increased by 64 FTE, or 26%. 

Vice President Botman reported that the University currently faces significant challenges due 
to the large number of faculty retiring in June. As many as 340 full-time faculty members may 
retire by the end of the academic year as a result of the Early Retirement Program. Final 
numbers of faculty retiring will be available after the June 15 th deadline. Vice President Botman 
estimated that 10-15% of the tenured faculty will retire at the end of the academic year. 
Typically 2 to 3% of the tenured faculty retire annually. 

Vice President Botman then introduced Provost Wagner, UMASS Lowell; Provost 
MacEwan, UMASS Boston; Provost Curry, UMASS Dartmouth; Provost Seymour, UMASS 
Amherst; and Vice Chancellor Scheid UMASS Worcester to lead the Committee in a discussion 
on faculty recruitment and retention. 

Provost Wagner reported on how the Lowell campus sets priorities in recruiting faculty. He 
reported that instructional demand and strategic hiring are paramount in determining the 
assignments of faculty. 

Provost Seymour reported on how the recruitment process works on the Amherst campus. 

Provost MacEwan reported on faculty retention strategies on the Boston campus. A number 
of mechanisms have been developed to try and encourage teaching activity on campus. He 
informed the Committee that the Boston campus is examining the issue of why junior faculty of 
color leave the University at a higher rate than junior faculty in general. 

Provost Curry reported on the impact of the Early Retirement Program on the Dartmouth 
campus. 

Vice Chancellor Scheid reported on alternative funding strategies for faculty on the 
Worcester campus.

President Bulger reported on the quality of life on the campuses and the University's 
contribution to the excellent quality of life throughout the Commonwealth. The $15 million 
UMASS Lowell Campus Recreation Center had its official opening in September. The new 
facility dramatically improves the quality of life on the Lowell campus, and allows students to 
have a more well-rounded college experience. President Bulger and Chancellor Hogan invite the 
Trustees to view the new facility. 

President Bulger reported that UMASS Dartmouth opened its new residence hall at the 
beginning of the fall. The Dartmouth campus can now satisfy increasing student demand for a 
residential college experience and continue to enroll a high quality student population. 

President Bulger reported that the teaching and research talent present on the five campuses 
is playing a major role in sustaining the quality of life throughout Massachusetts. He reported 
that on October 8 th , Governor Swift joined him in the President's Office for the purpose of 
announcing the release of the Massachusetts Department of Economic Development's economic 
framework for the Commonwealth entitled "Toward a New Prosperity." The report was created 
under the guidance of the Donahue Institute and is based on the outstanding research and 
analysis of the faculty members on the Amherst, Boston, Dartmouth and Lowell campuses. The 
announcement was also transmitted via teleconference equipment to the Dartmouth and Lowell 
campuses, as well as the 1-495 center in Westborough and the information technology hub in 
Hadley. The full report, as well as a video of the press conference, can be viewed on the 
University's website: www. massachusetts.edu . 

President Bulger reported that on October 10 he hosted a panel discussion featuring the 
leaders of several economic policy groups, including the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation, 
Masslnc, Mass Insight, the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative, and the Donahue Institute. 
The panel discussion, entitled "Positioning Massachusetts for Recovery," was moderated by 
Michael Olivieri, a UMass Lowell alumnus, who is now the publisher of the Boston Business 
Journal. On the same day, five leading CEOs of Massachusetts companies: Ray Stata of Analog 
Devices, Michael Ruettgers of EMC, George Chamillard of Teradyne, Corrinne Johnson of GE 
Aircraft, and Sam Thier of Partners Health Care released a letter to the two major gubernatorial 
candidates advocating for a science and technology-based economic development strategy. To 
"accelerate the development of the UMASS system as a leading-edge technology university" is 
among the suggestions in the letter. A few days earlier Ray Stata of Analog Devices - an 
outspoken advocate and generous benefactor for the University, delivered the same message 
while speaking at the 25 th anniversary of the Massachusetts High Technology Council. 

President Bulger announced that on October 30 , the University is hosting a meeting with 
Massachusetts life sciences industry executives to inform them about the partnering 
opportunities available throughout the University system. One hundred executives are expected 
at the event, which is being co-sponsored by the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council and 
MassMedic, which represents the Massachusetts medical device industry.

President Bulger also announced that on November 15 th , the five campuses of the University 
and the Department of Academic Affairs in the President's Office are sponsoring an 
environmental conference entitled "Managing Massachusetts' Environment for the New 
Millennium: Highlighting the Capacity Within UMASS." The conference will be held at 
UMASS Worcester. 

President Bulger reported that the Intercampus Graduate School of Marine Sciences and 
Technology officially accepted its first cohort of students this fall. 

President Bulger noted that all of the above-mentioned events provide a good context for 
today's discussion on University outreach. The discussion also correlates nicely with the faculty 
outreach awards ceremony that will take place following the meeting. 

The next item was the Vice President's Report . Vice President Botman reported on fall 
2002 enrollment and admissions data. The context for recruiting undergraduates for this fall has 
been challenging as universities are operating under constrained resources. Despite challenges, 
freshmen applications were up 10.5% for the UMASS System. The Dartmouth campus had the 
most dramatic increase at 19.5%. The Amherst campus had a 9.8% increase, the Lowell campus 
a 7.9% increase, and the Boston campus a 2% increase. Transfer applications are up 3.1%. The 
Dartmouth campus again had the largest increase at 12.2%. 

Vice President Botman reported that the acceptance rate refers to the percent of applicants 
admitted into each campus. A drop in the acceptance rate often suggests an academically 
stronger student population. The Amherst campus' notable decrease from 73% to 58% is due to 
the combination of a larger applicant pool and a planned reduction in the size of the entering 
class. The University also tracks yield rates at each of the four campuses. The yield refers to the 
number of accepted students who enroll on the campuses. The Lowell and Dartmouth campuses 
yield rates increased while Amherst and Boston's rates decreased. 

Vice President Botman reported that the campuses are doing well on high school GPA and 
SAT scores of freshmen. Three of the four campuses reported a rise in high school grade point 
averages while two of the four saw increases in SAT scores for incoming freshmen. The Lowell 
campus showed a 25-point gain in SAT scores. The Boston campus showed a large increase in 
GPA. 

Vice President Botman reported that first-year student enrollment at the Amherst campus 
declined by more than 20%, in part to compensate for the over-enrollment in the first-year class 
that occurred in 2001. The first-year student population dropped nearly 18% at the Boston 
campus. While the overwhelming number of new students on the Boston campus are transfer 
students, the sharp decline will merit attention during the current recruitment cycle. The 
Dartmouth campus showed a sharp increase in first-year students and the Lowell campus a 
modest increase. Transfer student enrollments are down just over 3% with the largest drop on 
the Boston and Lowell campuses. The Amherst campus rose 7.7% while the Dartmouth campus 

-3-

October 22, 2002 

remained stable. The percentage of students of color has remained stable since 1998. Vice 
President Botman reported that overall undergraduate and graduate enrollments are slightly 
down. 

Chair White introduced the first two discussion items Periodic Multi-Year Review 
(PMYR) and the Academic Quality Assessment and Development Review (AQAD) . Chair 
Fey asked Vice President Botman to provide an overview of the PMYR and AQAD review 
processes for the newest members of the Committee. 

Vice President Botman introduced Provost Curry; UMASS Dartmouth Provost Fonteyn, 
UMASS Boston; Provost Wagner, UMASS Lowell; Provost Seymour, UMASS Amherst; and 
Ms. Layton, Associate Vice President. 

Vice President Botman provided a brief overview of the PMYR and AQAD review 
processes. She indicated that each year in October a report on accountability and quality 
measures is brought before the Board. PMYR and AQAD are meaningful processes for quality 
assurance and improvement. The processes are designed to have an impact on teaching and 
research over the long tenn. The fact that the University engages these review processes speaks 
volumes about the University's commitment to assessment and improvement, and its desire to be 
held accountable for high performance. The AQAD process is designed to assure that every 
department and program undergoes a structured review to assess its goals and objectives, its 
curriculum, the environment for teaching and learning, and the quality of the faculty. PMYR 
allows tenured faculty members to look retrospectively and introspectively at their careers, and 
think about possibilities for growth and renewal. 

Vice President Botman indicated that the focus of the discussion is to update the Committee 
on accountability measures used by the provosts on the campuses. 

Provost Seymour briefed the Committee on PMYR and AQAD procedures for the Amherst 
campus. She also informed the Committee of the usefulness and importance of the PMYR and 
AQAD processes. 

Provost Wagner briefed the Committee on PMYR and AQAD processes and the expectations 
for the Lowell campus. 

Provost Curry briefed the Committee on PMYR and AQAD processes for the Dartmouth 
campus. He reported that PMYR and AQAD are coupled processes. 

Chair White indicated that PMYR and AQAD are absolutely necessary and important to the 
University. He asked that last year's report be sent to trustees. Chair White thanked the 
Provosts for participating in the discussion.

Chair White introduced the next discussion item, Outreach and Public Service . Vice 
President Botman introduced Joan Becker, Associate Vice Provost for Academic Support 
Services, UMASS Boston; John Mullin, Vice Chancellor for University Outreach, UMASS 
Amherst; Paul Vigeant, Associate Vice Chancellor for Economic Development, UMASS 
Dartmouth; and Donn Clark, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UMASS 
Lowell. 

Vice President Botman reported that outreach provides educational opportunities for 
students, produces and applies knowledge, and aids the Commonwealth in resolving external 
problems. Faculty and staff have extensive relationships in the city, in the state, and 
internationally. She indicated that the focus of the discussion is to talk with practitioners and

Under the Chair's Report , Chair Dubilo reported that the current fiscal situation has 
placed the University in the position of making some hard decisions. The Board of 
Trustees supports the Administration in their efforts to take the necessary steps to keep 
the University prospering. Seventy thousand students benefit from the educational 
opportunities provided by this University. The job of the Board is to ensure that the 
faculty and the administrators continue with the University's high standards. 

The next item was the President's Report . President Bulger began his report by 
stating that while the University faces great financial challenges in the months ahead, he 
is confident that the University will emerge with its strength and vitality intact and will 
continue with its core mission of providing the citizens of the Commonwealth with 
educational excellence. 

President Bulger continued his report by noting that the Board had met in a special 
meeting in December and had taken the difficult step of raising student charges, the first 
increase in seven years. This vote was needed due to a $25 million mid-year budget cut. 
Student charges for the upcoming year are usually considered at this meeting but the vote 
is being deferred until the February 6 Board meeting to give the University additional 
time to study the ever-changing fiscal situation. 

President Bulger also reported that the campuses are going forward with workforce 
reduction steps resulting in the elimination of 300 positions by the end of the fiscal year.

spending reduction plans. 

The faculty, staff, administrators and members of the Board will continue to build on 
the progress the University has made in recent years. 

The next item for discussion was State Budget Update . Vice President Lenhardt 
reported on some of the critical concerns: a $25 million cut to the University's 
appropriations due to the State Budget being out of balance by $300 million to $1.2 
billion; the University has approximately $25 million in collectively bargained wage 
increases requiring state funding in FY02; the total cost of contracts from FY02 to FY04 
is estimated at over $110 million. 

Vice President Lenhardt continued his report by noting that the FY2003 State budget 
could be $1.2 to $1.5 billion out of balance. The University is currently taking the 
following actions:

reiterated his confidence in President Bulger and the Chancellors to maintain quality during these

current national and regional economic crisis, has been unable to appropriate the money needed 
to fund the various contracts.

The University values the services provided by its employees and without them the excellence at 
the University would be only a goal rather than the reality. 

President Bulger continued his report by noting that several of the University's faculty 
members had received the President's Public Service Award earlier in the week. These teachers 
and researchers whose photographs are hanging in the Board Room represent 4,500 outstanding 
faculty members on our campuses.

campuses; 

•Graduate enrollment is the same as last year across the system. At the Amherst campus the 

FTE enrollment has grown by two percent;

governor in response to a Mass Insight-coordinated initiative to encourage the creation of a 

science and technology-based economic development strategy for Massachusetts.

Harrison for their work with the University's fiscal and administrative program.

as a whole.

reduced student charges, changes in student profile and the stable condition of UMASS

need. If the need is relatively low and the onlv aid offered is a need-based loan, the student

amounts of institutional need-based aid.

program with the Greater Boston community. It was suggested that the Boston campus find 
ways to utilize the generosity provided to the communities by the UMASS Boston athletic 
program.

ice hockey coach has the best winning percentage in three divisions; the UMASS Dartmouth 
cheerleaders have won two national championships; currently there are two athletic trainers for

recently recommended that the campus immediately begin the procedure to move the athletic 
program to Division II from Division III. The football field will soon be replaced with an

athletic facilities and recruiting measures; some suggestions for increased funding: raising fees 
and enhancement of development/fundraising activities. 

Ms. Betsy Mosher from the Amherst campus made a presentation on NCAA Rules and 
Compliance . Compliance at the Division I level is very different than that at the Division II and 
III levels. Key components of a successful compliance program are consistent philosophy, 
education, communication and record keeping. 

Chair Moes thanked Ms. Mosher for a very informative presentation and indicated her desire 
to inform the rest of the Board members on the importance of this issue. Ms. Mosher agreed to 
provide a hard copy of the report for distribution.

The meeting was convened at 4:15 p.m. Chair Fey welcomed one of the newest 
members of the Board, James Karam. 

Chair Fey stated that there is a great deal of information to get through today as we 
discuss the 2002 Performance Measurement Results . 

President Bulger also expressed his enthusiasm for today's report. 

Vice Presidents Lenhardt and Botman thanked the many staff members that have 
worked so hard on this report including Daphne Layton, Kelli Armstrong, Steven 
O'Riordan and the campus staff members from Institutional Research. The Performance 
Measurement System was created in 1997 and combines the annual indicators and 
AQAD process of program reviews. It was designed to provide Trustees with a way to 
measure the progress of campuses in critical areas and is used primarily as a management 
tool.

Committee of the Whole 
April 30, 2002 



Some of the major changes made in 2002 to the Performance Measurement System 
include a revised list of annual indicators, a revised format of the report and revisited 
campus peer groups. Targets and additional indicators will be added in 2003 that will 
include: campus regional impact indicators, graduate admission test scores of graduates 
and alumni satisfaction measures. 

The Annual Indicators include five major categories: academic quality, access and 
affordability, financial health, service to the Commonwealth and student success and 
satisfaction. The new indicators focus more on outputs such as the percentage of seniors 
rating their educational experience and the percentage of alumni giving to the institution, 
student/faculty ratio, percentage of faculty with terminal degrees, online/distance course 
enrollments, license income and patent applications and sponsored instruction/outreach 
per faculty. 

Some of the broad themes from the 2002 indicators include the following: 

•Academic Quality 

-Continued improvement in the academic profile of entering students 

-Good overall performance on licensure/certification tests 

-Sponsored research/faculty far below peer institutions, despite healthy rates of 

growth on most campuses (except UMASS Dartmouth and UMASS Worcester) 

•Student Success and Satisfaction 

-Most measures (freshman retention rates, satisfaction rates, alumni giving rates, are 

good and comparable to peers but still could improve 

-Most problematic area is freshman graduation rates, which are slightly below peers 

and have not improved in recent years 

•Service to the Commonwealth 

-High percentage of alumni live and work in Massachusetts 

-Significant growth in online course enrollments between 2000 and 2001 

-Starting to see growth in patents and license revenues (especially UMASS 

Worcester) 

•Access and Affordability 

-Improvements in the academic profile of new students have not come at the expense 

of access 

-Improvements or stability in diversity of undergraduates, percentage from 

Massachusetts and from lower-income backgrounds 



<*

Committee of the Whole 
April 30, 2002 



•Financial Health 

-FY01 and FY02 are stable 

-From FY02 to FY07 we have the potential for a significant decline in the financial 

condition 

-Outperform peers on operating surpluses 

-Well-managed debt 

-Perform less satisfactorily on financial savings and endowment 

Chancellors Williams, Gora, MacCormack, Hogan and Lazare then reported on their 
PMS challenges and highlights, (see Doc. T02-033). 

Following the Chancellor's highlights there was a discussion about several issues: 

•the need to continue to provide access to the students with the highest financial 

need; 

•the need to focus on the reasons students drop out, financial or otherwise; at 

UMASS Boston the retention and graduation rates for freshmen fall below those of 

their peers. 

Vice Chair Giblin suggested the administration institute a study about ways to 
improve retention rates and what it would cost to keep students in school. 

There being no further business to come before the Committee, the meeting was 
adjourned at 5:45 p.m.

and Ellen Zane. Trustees Sheridan and Zane will be present at tomorrow's Board meeting. 

Chair Fey then reported that the Committee would be hearing a discussion on the 
effectiveness of research on the Amherst campus. 

Under the President's Report , President Bulger thanked Chancellor Lombardi and his staff 
for their hospitality. He thanked the speakers for taking time to participate in the discussion. He 
reported on a meeting held on October 30 th with over 100 Massachusetts life sciences industry 
executives to introduce them to University-wide excellence in life sciences research. One of the 
presentations focused on a partnership developed between the Pfizer Company and the 
Department of Veterinary and Animal Sciences on the Amherst campus. President Bulger then

of commercial impact and; UMASS provides Pfizer with an optimal integration of academics 
and commercial interests." 

Vice President Botman then introduced the discussion item, The Importance of Research at 
UMASS Amherst . She thanked the Committee, on behalf of the presenters, for the opportunity 
to talk about research. She reported that UMASS Amherst has created a research institution, and 
research is central and fundamental to faculty. She hoped the discussion would humanize the 
faculty, explain the mystique surrounding research, and satisfy the Committee on the importance 
of research to the state and the University. 

Vice President Botman reported that research conducted on the Amherst campus is strong. 
The campus conducts research in science and technology, humanities, fine arts, and social 
sciences. Faculty members conducting research in the sciences are credited by the amounts of 
grants and contracts they bring in to the University. In the first quarter of FY2003 UMASS 
Amherst brought in a record $34.3 million in grants and contracts, which is 35% higher than last 
year.

Committee of the Whole 
November 5, 2002 



Vice President Botman and faculty members then led the Trustees in a discussion on research 
at the Amherst campus. The discussion focused on the following: 

• why should UMASS and the Commonwealth support research? 

• why is it important for the Commonwealth to have a research institution in the public 
education system? 

• how is research linked to undergraduate and graduate instruction? 

• what projects are faculty members currently working on? 

• is there intercampus collaboration on research projects? 

• what is the process for choosing a research topic? 

• who funds the projects? 

• how much time is spent on research? 

• how are research and teaching interchanged? 

• what processes are used to determine how much time is spent on research and teaching? 

• what does it mean to "outfit" a lab? what are the resources needed to support a lab? 

• how has the Commonwealth Scholars program changed undergraduate research? 

Some of the highlights included: 

• research keeps students on top of the newest ideas and innovations; 

• research provides cutting edge experiences for students to take into the market place; 

• the Commonwealth should support research because students have access to quality 
education; 

• Professor Young studies the Legacy of the Holocaust and how it gets passed down. 

• Professor McLaughlin is working on the study of hurricanes and seeks solutions to 
extreme weather events; 

• Professor Croft was recently involved in the National Academy for Fraud on the role of 
science and technology encountering terrorism; 

• faculty collaborate with colleagues and look to the very best person in the discipline to 
compliment their research; 

• formulating a research topic is the essence of research; 

• research projects take 6 months to 5 years to complete; 

• research remains constant and is imbedded in faculty teaching; 

• salary packages, start-up cost, large instruments and equipment, and outfitting and 
reconfiguring laboratory space are important issues in maintaining competitiveness; 

• having the necessary equipment helps train students with the tools they will be using in the 
future; 

• Commonwealth Scholars has increased the overall quality of students in the classroom; 

• conveying passion for one's work to students is important to having research on campus.

Guests : Mr. David Manuel, Prospect Information Network, LLC 

Chair Mahoney convened the meeting at 9:40 a.m. The first item on the agenda was 
Review of Top Principal Gift Prospects. Each campus Development Officer reported 
on the status of the top prospects. Chair Mahoney expressed his concern with the list of 
principal gift prospects, stating that we must increase the number of prospects and 
develop a pool of stronger prospects relative to larger gift potential. There was a general 
discussion regarding ways to proceed in identifying and qualifying prospects. There is 
both a prospect quality issue and an activity issue to address in the major gift process. 

Reference was made to the gift potential of reunion classes. Specific reference was 
made to the 50 th Reunion classes and the importance of identifying, cultivating, tracking 
and monitoring individuals in these classes.

Development Committee 
April 25, 2002 

The importance of corporate matching of gift programs was discussed. We must 
realize this potential and develop models for achieving and maximizing matching gifts. 

Chair Mahoney asked that we define a strategy for utilizing volunteers in our 
fundraising efforts. He suggested this as a topic for the next Committee meeting on July 
23, and requested that the Development Officers in attendance meet prior to July 23 rd to 
discuss this further. 

Chair Mahoney commented on the power of film utilizing campus video 
presentations for prospective donors highlighting campus achievements, perhaps 
including the name of the prospective donor relative to a naming gift opportunity. Other 
suggestions included contacting well known alumni athletes, making prospective donors 
aware of the state's matching gift program and circulating positive new articles such as 
the recent U.S. News article. 

Reference was made to publicity on gifts. This type of exposure is beneficial and 
encourages others to join in supporting the University. 

The next item was a Presentation: PIN, A Powerful New Approach to Finding, 
Profiling and Monitoring Major Gift Prospects . Mr. David Manuel gave a 
presentation on A New Approach to Fundraising. Traditional approaches have included 
referrals by Board members, volunteers and staff, peer screening, surveys and "rich" zip 
codes. 

One of the common challenges in development includes soliciting the same donors 
over and over again; the University needs to find new, qualified major gift prospects: 
younger prospects with major gift potential and the "millionaire next door." There is new 
competition for major gifts; traditional screening techniques are no longer adequate. 

Mr. Manuel then gave an overview of the PIN process - some of the steps include: 
identifying groups of names to begin the major donor identification part of the process, 
research data to provide a profile to provide "hard" identification facts - PIN loads the 
results into a copy of the ProfileBuilder databases and installs this database on your local 
server. PIN staff members will provide on-site training. 

Currently PIN is waiting for each campus to provide their donor lists. Chair 
Mahoney asked that the campus personnel provide this information as soon as possible. 

The next item was the Status of Fundraising Goals for 2001-2002 . Chair Mahoney 
reported that total support is at $66 million - the goal is $90 million. There is work to be 
done by June 30 but overall we are making progress and moving closer to the goal.

The next item was the President's Annual Fund Update . Ms. Wilson introduced 
Brian Andriolo who is working on the President's Fund. Using five test markets, the 
total number of donors is at 179, total gifts $67,821.83: Trustees and Friends, 10 donors 
at $49,206.83 and 169 Alumni and others at $18,615.00. The letter mailed from the 
President is achieving positive results. 

Before departing, Chair Mahoney requested that we identify companies willing to 
make matching gifts and coordinating strategy involving potential volunteers. 

There was an announcement that on Saturday, April 27, a UMASS Alumni Day 
would be held at six different sites throughout the Commonwealth. 

In closing, reference was again made to the importance of volunteers. It was 
suggested that the University continue to explore the possibility of enlisting volunteers 
such as former Chairs of the Board. Mr. Cofield asked that the development officers 
provide a list of potential volunteers for the meeting preceeding the July 23 Development 
Committee meeting. 



The meeting was adjourned at 11:13 a.m.

Committee that the campuses are currently establishing campus-based volunteer boards. Each 
board would have a chair and would be asked to attend future Development Committee 
meetings. 

Although there are campus-based foundation boards, Chair Mahoney remarked on the need 
to revitalize these boards, utilizing the volunteers to focus on principal gift prospects in helping 
to solicit others for support of the University.

Development Committee 
July 23, 2002 



Chancellor Lombardi pointed out that responsibility for fundraising at the Amherst campus 
must involve many individuals, noting that deans and faculty must be included in the process. 
The campus needs to further engage principal prospects and wealthy donors, particularly those 
who can provide entrees to others of similar financial means. Chancellor Lombardi looks 
forward to being involved in fundraising. He commented that we want to take advantage of 
President Bulger at the appropriate time with select donors. 

Chancellor Lombardi suggested that we compare our fundraising data with other universities. 
We must be looking at trends and understanding where we are going with our fundraising 
performance. 

Chair Mahoney reinforced the points made by Chancellor Lombardi. He suggested that we 
review fundraising data over the past few years and retain the topic related to volunteers assisting 
with fundraising for our October meeting. Chair Mahoney asked that other topics for the 
October meeting should include the PIN (Prospect Identification Network) Program as well as 
the continued discussion on the top 25 prospects. 

Vice Chancellor Sperounis informed the Committee members that Donald Rizzo has 
resigned from his position at the Lowell campus. 

The next item was Fundraising Results for FY2001-2002 . A Report was distributed listing 
the figures for each campus: cash, pledges, grants, gifts-in-kind, total support and the goals. The 
goal for 2002 was $90 million; the results totaled $84 million. Several development officers 
reported some disappointment in the results, citing factors that included the economy, the overall 
business environment and the volatility of the market. As stated earlier, Chair Mahoney asked 
that the Committee be presented with data from peer institutions regarding fundraising efforts. 

The next item was the President's Annual Fund Final Report/Next Steps . Ms. Wilson 
reported that there was a 2% response rate to the mailing sent out for the President's Fund. 
Another mailing is being planned for August. Having the correspondence come from the 
President has proved to have a positive effect. 

The next item was the UMASS Alumni Evening at the Pops, 2002 . Mr. Goodhue reported 
that this year's concert was nearly a sell-out in contrast to last year's concert when all tickets 
were sold weeks prior to the event. Mr. Goodhue commented about the success of the 
President's reception. This special event preceded the concert and recognized the University's 
most generous donors and other select prospects.

President Bulger expressed appreciation for their interest and support. He introduced Chair 
of the Board, Grace Fey and Speaker Thomas Finneran, both of whom made appropriate 
remarks. President Bulger introduced Roy Zuckerberg, UMass Lowell alumnus, and recipient of 
The President's Medal, at the reception. Mr. Zuckerberg delivered remarks and later addressed 
the crowd at the Pops concert. Again, it was a great evening for alumni and friends of the 
University. 

Mr. Goodhue noted that Commonwealth College students were offered tickets to the 
Pops concert. He suggested that individuals attending next year's be offered the opportunity to 
buy five tickets, allocating one for a student. The plan for next year is to also include a reception 
for select donors. 

Chair Mahoney concluded the meeting with a suggestion for the October agenda: 
Fundraising goals for FY2003, a status report on the Volunteer Structure and an analysis from
