On motion, the Minutes of the Board meetings of May 14-15, and July 23-24, were approved.

The Rector introduced The Honorable Wilbert Bryant, Secretary of Education of the Commonwealth. Secretary Bryant, who did not address the Board, stayed for the morning session of the Board meeting.

Mr. Robertson, in his capacity as a member of the Governorís Blue Ribbon Commission on Education, reported briefly on the work of the Commission. The Commissionís final report is due in February and the Commission should finish its work in March.

The President gave a brief report on several matters. He remarked that the athletic programs at the University would receive stronger academic support than they have now. He also spoke of the need to strengthen the Universityís Intramural programs. He told the Board of recent discussions about the possibility of building a new arena in the center of Charlottesville. These discussions - with the potential developer and with the City - he said have gone as far as they can for the moment; the University appears to be the only major source of funds for the project. The problem now is to find a major donor or donors.

The President said the firm Korn-Ferry has been engaged to help in the search for a new Vice President for Information Technologies and Communication. Dr. Reynolds, the Interim Vice President, the President said is doing a fine job.

The Board at this meeting, the President pointed out, will begin discussion of how the University is to develop from the beginning of the new century. In addition to the four planning commissions already in place and at work, he said he envisions a fifth commission which, among other charges, will work on how to implement the recommendations of the present four commissions.

The Rector invited comments from Members after the meeting on whether the schedule of this meeting - Friday morning through midday Saturday - is satisfactory or whether the Board should return to its recent schedule of Thursday afternoon through midday Saturday. He also suggested that the Retreat next summer be held once more at Upper Brandon in Prince George County and in July, unless a meeting that month conflicts with Members' plans.

STATEMENT BY THE RECTOR

The Rector read the following statement, adopted by the Board by resolution:

The Board of Visitors unanimously endorses the University's continuing commitment to recruiting and enrolling students of diverse talents and backgrounds. It also supports the changes made by the President in the University's undergraduate admission system. The admission system considers each applicant on the basis of his or her merits, in an equitable manner, and in accordance with law.

Every student admitted under our policies is qualified to attend. Each one deserves the finest education we can offer. By any measure, the University boasts one of the strongest student bodies in American higher education. Its students graduate on-time and on-track at higher rates than those at all but a handful of institutions. The academic successes of its African-American and other minority students are the envy of every major university. The system works. We are prepared to defend it.

Cultivating diversity within the University community takes commitment, but brings indisputable benefits. The Board and the administration consider maintaining diversity a top priority now and in the years to come.
