Madison Representative Report

The May 18 meeting was a joint one.  President Reilly reiterated his goals and stress communication across the levels; discussion of shared governance.  There was talk of having an Academic Staff Representative at each Board of Regents meeting.  They would get introduced at the beginning of each meeting.  They still need to set up a schedule and determine which, if any, committee meetings that will attend.

The Board of Regents will be voting on the Growth and Access planning at the August meeting: August 17 & 18.
