Strategic Initiatives Update

Provost John Hughes began by expressing his delight at being at the University of Vermont. He
has spent his first few weeks meeting with people around campus and has found the community
to be most welcoming. He noted that, from an outsider’s eyes, the University has an outstanding
community of people.

Provost Hughes next provided updates on the following searches:

        College of Medicine, Chair of Surgery – 51 candidates applied for this position and
        airport interviews have been conducted. Three of eight finalists have been invited for
        campus interviews. The search is expected to be completed by September 15.

        College of Medicine, Chair of Medicine –31 candidates applied. The search committee
        will meet this week to determine the list of finalists.

        College of Medicine Dean’s Search – Provost Hughes, Vice President Gower, and Chief
        of Staff Gary Derr met with John Issacson of the search firm of Issacson, Miller this past
        week. The Provost noted that this search firm has just completed the presidential
        searches for Association of American Medical Colleges and Miami University of Ohio.
        The College of Medicine is now electing members of its faculty to serve on the search
        Committee and Provost Hughes and Acting President Bramley will be appointing other
        search committee members. Provost Hughes will serve as Chair and expects the search
        to be completed within 9-18 months.

        Vice President for Enrollment Management – Provost Hughes continues to expedite this
        search and is in the process of retaining a search firm. He expects to have a firm
        identified in late August or early September.

        Vice Provost for Diversity and Multicultural Affairs – Provost Hughes remains
        aggressive in his efforts to appoint an interim Vice Provost and looks forward to
        engaging constituents when they return in the fall to learn how this position can most
        effectively handle the assigned responsibilities.


U.S. Forest Service Aiken Research Facility/Spear Street

Vice President Meyer informed the Committee of discussions with the U.S. Forest Service in
regard to the U.S. Forest Service Aiken Research Facility, located on University land on Spear
Street. Discussions were initiated by Donald DeHayes, Dean of the Rubenstein School of
Environment and Natural Resources, with the U.S. Forest Services and the office of U.S. Senator
Patrick Leahy. A mechanism has recently been identified to gift the facility to the University.
University acquisition of the facility could yield valuable lab and office space. While the
transaction could take months to finalize, the administration wanted the Board to be aware of the
potential opportunity.
Executive Committee, 8/14/06
Page 5 of 15

Vice President Gower offered an initial assessment of the facility as being in good shape with
reasonable use for wet labs or swing space. He noted the facility has five distinct buildings with
approximately 24,000 gross sf/16,000 net sf.

Dean DeHayes added that, currently, 12-13 scientists with support staff work out of the facility.

Other Business

Acting President John Bramley provided a brief update on PeopleSoft. Overall, good progress
has been made in the implementation of the software. One present glitch is its inability to process
expenditures on grants. The administration is taking rapid and forthright steps to address this
issue and expects to have it resolved within a week.

Chair Lisman reported that the subcommittee for Presidential Evaluation was due to report to
President Fogel the week he was hospitalized. The subcommittee will bring a recommendation
to the full Board in September.

At 12:50 p.m., the Chair entertained a motion to enter into executive session for the purpose of
discussing personnel and contract matters. All meeting participants, with the exception of
Provost Hughes, Vice Presidents Bazluke, Gower, Gustafson and Meyer and Chief of Staff Gary
Derr were excused.

The motion was made, seconded and it was voted to enter into executive session. Vice President
Meyer subsequently left the call.

The meeting was re-opened to the public at 1:25 p.m.

Chair Lisman presented the following resolutions for approval:
