B. Legislative Update

BACKGROUND: Clinch Valley College outlined its priorities to its legislative representatives for the 1998 - 2000 biennium. The College's capital priorities were the renovation and expansion of the Science Building, and approval to spend non-general funds for a new student center. The operating priorities were faculty salaries, enrollment growth, and technology.

DISCUSSION: The Chancellor will review those actions of the General Assembly that have a direct impact on Clinch Valley College.

ACTION REQUIRED: None.

C. Strategic Planning

BACKGROUND: In the fall of 1997, the Faculty Senate, the Clinch Valley College Advisory Council, and the Board of Visitors approved a set of strategic directions that provide the framework for long-term planning.

DISCUSSION: The College has begun holding a series of meetings to discuss and prioritize specific objectives for each strategic direction. The meetings are open to faculty, staff, and students. The Chancellor will review the progress being made and will summarize the next step in the process.

ACTION REQUIRED: None.

D. Role of the Advisory Council

BACKGROUND: The Clinch Valley College Advisory Council is comprised primarily of local leaders who understand the role of the institution in the region. During the past six years, the Council has begun taking an active role in advising the Chancellor and the Board of Visitors on policy matters and planning for the College's future.

DISCUSSION: The practical function of the Advisory Council has changed since its founding, and the by-laws should be updated to reflect the stronger and more active role the Council plays. In addition, it may be important to amend the name of this body to signify the important relationship it has with the College and the University. The Chancellor will review the Council's role, the suggested changes to the by-laws, and possible names for the body. The purpose of the report is to discuss the matter with the Board prior to seeking approval at a future meeting of the Board.

ACTION REQUIRED: None.

E. Healthcare in Southwest Virginia

BACKGROUND: Clinch Valley College has a history of regional service and outreach. Indeed, the College was founded not only to provide opportunity and access to higher education, but also to help improve the quality of life in Southwest Virginia.

DISCUSSION: During the past seven years, Clinch Valley College has undertaken, with the full support of the University, a number of initiatives aimed at improving health care throughout the region. The Chancellor will discuss some of these initiatives and their results. The initiatives to be discussed include the baccalaureate nursing program, the regional area health education effort, a masters nurse practitioner effort, and the delivery of health science library materials to benefit Southwest Virginia.

ACTION REQUIRED: None
