Minutes of the Finance Subcommittee Meeting
September 20, 2018
The teleconference meeting of the subcommittee was called to order at 9:00 a.m. by Subcommittee Chair Gary White. Those participating in the meeting were Chair Gary White, Ellen Cappellanti, Eric Lewis, Mirta Martin, and Jerry Gilbert (resource person).
Dr. Chris Treadwell delivered a PowerPoint presentation on the HEPC Funding formula. Following his presentation, he took questions from members of the subcommittee.
Dr. Jerry Gilbert presented a proposal on approaching higher education funding in a two-step process. The first step would involve an infusion of additional monies to the budgets of selected regional institutions. The second step would involve the development of a new funding formula with input from all the four-year institutions.
There was discussion of Action Item 1.2 in the proposal. This item concerned a reporting requirement of institutions receiving additional money. It was decided that the full committee should have input on whether to require this action. After the discussion, a motion was made to approve the proposal, and it passed unanimously.
The meeting was adjourned at approximately 10:40 a.m.
