December 2001

At its meeting on December 19, 2001, a quorum being present, the Board of Governors for Higher Education approved the following resolution:

RESOLVED: that the Board of Governors license a five-year pilot program in Educational Leadership, to be offered by Central Connecticut State University, leading to a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) degree, until December 31, 2006. It is further recommended that licensure of the program include the following requirements and stipulations:

  1. program performance and projections, including enrollment, retention, and budget information in a format determined by the Department of Higher Education. Such information will include tuition income in the Ed.D. program; enrollment statistics and tuition and fee income in undergraduate, master’s and sixth-year level programs in the School of Education, including an explanation of the allocation of resources from those programs in support of the Ed.D. program; numbers of applicants and numbers of acceptances in the Ed.D. program; student attrition rates in the Ed.D. program, by cohort and for the program as a whole; and faculty workloads in the School of Education in light of the need to accommodate dissertation advising into faculty workload schedules;
  2. institutional results of the development of a "two-tiered" faculty structure at the University, with explanations of resulting workload issues and other contractual issues that will arise in collective bargaining at the University with regard to appointment of individuals to the University’s "Graduate Faculty;"
  3. progress made in faculty searches to increase diversity in the Department of Educational Leadership and the School of Education;
  4. progress made in the development and implementation of elective courses within the Department and the School, in order to reduce and ultimately eliminate reliance on elective courses offered by other departments or schools of the University;
  5. progress made in addressing the shortcomings of the Library and Learning Resources available to students and faculty in the program; this will include reports on the following: the University’s allocation of supplemental funding to build research resources at the University, especially those resources necessary for doctoral-level research; the addition of appropriate Library staff who focus on doctoral cohorts; the inclusion of the Librarian in the processes of academic and resource planning for the doctoral program; the integration of technology and technological resources into the program and into the library resource delivery system; and the addition of technology and technological resources into the Library itself;
  6. progress made in building appropriate professional relationships and codifying agreements with school districts to develop action-research elements of the program; this includes progress made in securing commitments from school and community leaders to support employees entering the program, especially in light of necessary research in the schools and in the development and articulation of inquiry projects.

RESOLVED: that the Board of Governors license a program in Educational Leadership, to be offered by the University of Connecticut, leading to a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) degree, until December 31, 2004. It is further recommended that licensure of the program include the following requirements and stipulations:

  1. program performance and projections, including enrollment, retention, and budget information in a format determined by the Department of Higher Education. Such information will include tuition income in the Ed.D. program; enrollment statistics and tuition and fee income in undergraduate, master’s and sixth-year level programs in the School of Education, including an explanation of the allocation of resources from those programs in support of the Ed.D. program; numbers of applicants and numbers of acceptances in the Ed.D. program; student attrition rates in the Ed.D. program, by cohort and for the program as a whole; and faculty workloads in the School of Education in light of the need to accommodate dissertation advising into faculty workload schedules;
  2. the program’s purposes and objectives with regard to the attention that the program seeks to pay to urban schools;
  3. the University’s commitment to national leadership in the field of education and how the Ed.D. program’s local recruitment focus serves that goal;
  4. the relationship of the curriculum of the Executive Leadership program to the work expected in the Ed.D. degree program;
  5. efforts made to increase the numbers of minority faculty and students in the program.

RESOLVED: that the Board of Governors approve the program modification and accredit a Master of Occupational Therapy, to be offered by Quinnipiac University, concurrent with institutional accreditation.

RESOLVED: that the Board of Governors accredit a program in Information Technology leading to the Master of Science degree, to be offered by Rensselaer at Hartford and Groton, concurrent with institutional accreditation.

RESOLVED: that the Board of Governors accredit a program in Cardiovascular Technology leading to the Associate in Science degree, to be offered by St. Vincent’s College, concurrent with institutional accreditation.

RESOLVED: that the Board of Governors for Higher Education approve the following proposals as part of its 2002 Legislative Agenda: 1) approval of constituent unit tuition and fee increases if these rates exceed the cost of the Consumer Price Index; 2) establish and administer a fund to be known as the Gear-Up for Connecticut Futures Fund. Further, that the Board give its continued strong support to the proposals developed in Year 2000 aimed at reducing the state’s teacher shortages and also urges the Department, the constituent units and the Attorney General to resolve the outstanding issues related to the matching grant endowment.

February 2001

At its meeting on February 1, 2001, a quorum being present, the Board of Governors for Higher Education approved the following resolutions:

At its meeting on February 21, 2001, a quorum being present, the Board of Governors for Higher Education approved the following resolutions:

  1. In light of the state’s goal of ensuring affordable access, encouraging college attendance and supporting workforce development in Connecticut, tuition (including educational extension fees) and fee increases for FY 2001-02 should be limited, wherever possible, to current inflationary changes as measured by the Higher Education Price Index.
  2. The apparently growing constituent unit interest in establishing tuition and fee rates based on competitive or market driven criteria is at odds with the system’s overall goal and responsibility to ensure access and affordability for all Connecticut citizens and should be examined in the light of public sector policy.
  3. Together with the units, the Board of Governors for Higher Education should advocate for state investment in programs and services evidenced to meet state need and hold to the policy that such improvements should not be financed solely through student tuition and fees.
  4. Anticipated enrollment increases should be recognized by the University of Connecticut and the Connecticut State University as generating additional revenue above the margin of gain provided through inflationary increases. For the University of Connecticut the anticipated enrollment increase of 9 percent and for the Connecticut State University the anticipated enrollment increase of 2 percent should sustain some of the program improvements envisioned by these two units and should, therefore, cause reconsideration of the 3.9 percent tuition increases.
  5. The equity of fee increases for segments of the student population, and the relationship of fee increases to tuition increases, also are an issue among the constituent units and are recommended for additional consideration. Examples of these increases are the application of an average increase to fees at the University of Connecticut, the double digit increase proposed for part-time students system-wide at Connecticut State University and the double digit increase for all Central Connecticut State University students required to support Division I intercollegiate and other athletic programs.

The Board of Governors for Higher Education reemphasizes that it is requesting the responsibility of reviewing and approving all public sector petitions to increase tuition beyond the level of annual inflation indices, which this year are 2.85 percent for the CPI and 3.7 percent for the HEPI.
