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.
