Board of Regents Meeting
July 11-12, 2002
Restructuring, Phase III
Submitted by Student Regent Hur
It’s been an ongoing concern of Montana University System stakeholders that issues regarding restructuring need to be continually discussed and addressed by the Board of Regents. While I whole heartily support restructuring steering committees and informal meetings with others, I think that it would be appropriate for the chair of the Board of Regents to schedule an informal “Work Session-style” retreat for the Regents to discuss the issue of restructuring and its future in greater depth.
At such a retreat or informal meeting, restructuring ideas might be presented, evaluated, worked on or “word-smithed”, and then submitted to a regular Board of Regents' meeting for formal action. In any event, I believe that such a discussion is highly warranted. I urge our Chair to at least consider the possibility of arranging such a meeting.
