AGENDA

I. ACTION ITEM

II. REPORTS BY THE CHANCELLOR OF CLINCH VALLEY COLLEGE (Mr. Lemons)


BACKGROUND: The Clinch Valley College Advisory Council was created to serve as a local body to advise the College on various matters. The role of the Advisory Council has evolved from that of an advisory body to one with an important role in determining policy.

DISCUSSION: The College recommends that the name of the Advisory Council be changed to �Clinch Valley College Board.� This change reflects that body's more active role in the direction of the College. The College also recommends that the Advisory Council Bylaws be revised to grant that body authority to act on behalf of the Board of Visitors on matters specified in the Bylaws. A copy of the Bylaws is attached at the end of this booklet.

ACTION REQUIRED: Approval by the Clinch Valley College Committee and the Board of Visitors.

APPROVAL OF THE REVISION OF THE CLINCH VALLEY COLLEGE ADVISORY COUNCIL BYLAWS

WHEREAS, the Clinch Valley College Advisory Council has evolved from that of an advisory body to one with an important role in determining policy;

RESOLVED that the name of the Clinch Valley College Advisory Council be changed to "Clinch Valley College Board"; and

RESOLVED FURTHER that the Advisory Council Bylaws (shown as an attachment) are amended to provide that body authority to act on behalf of the Board of Visitors of the University of Virginia, on matters specifically identified in the Bylaws.


BACKGROUND: During this portion of the meeting, the Chancellor will report on items of interest to the Board.

DISCUSSION: The Chancellor will provide a brief summary of issues at Clinch Valley College of which the Board should be aware, but do not require Board action.

ACTION REQUIRED: None

BACKGROUND: During the Fall of 1997, the Faculty, the Clinch Valley College Advisory Council, and the Board of Visitors approved a set of strategic directions for the College. In the course of deliberations, the Advisory Council requested an external marketing study to help the College understand how it might best work towards achieving the strategic directions. The study identified several problems with the College's name.

DISCUSSION: At its meeting in May 1998, the Advisory Council recommended that Clinch Valley College undertake a formal review of whether or not the College's name should be changed. The Chancellor will outline the process to make this determination.

ACTION REQUIRED: None.

BACKGROUND: In January 1998, the Board of Visitors approved a resolution allowing the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer to enter into a broadcast license agreement on behalf of The Rector and Visitors of the University of Virginia. The Board further approved the operation of a public radio station by Clinch Valley College. With the announcement of a gift from the C. Bascom Slemp Foundation, the College has been able to meet the matching funds requirements of its Federal Grant, which will be used to purchase equipment. The radio station has been awarded the call letters "WCVC."

DISCUSSION: The Chancellor will report on the status of WCVC, the schedule for its activation, and the resources required for annual operations.

ACTION REQUIRED: None.

BACKGROUND: Upon the recommendation of the Advisory Council, Clinch Valley College has established an Architectural Design Guidelines Committee. The committee has the charge of developing architectural guidelines that will direct the appearance of all current and future construction projects at the College.

DISCUSSION: The Chancellor will report on the status of the work of the Architectural Design Guidelines Committee.

ACTION REQUIRED: None.
