Minutes of the Meeting of the Executive Committee

Thursday, September 25, 2008





A meeting of the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees of Northern Michigan University was held on Thursday, September 25, 2008.  It was convened by Chair Samuel S. Benedict at 11:30 a.m. 


Participating were: 


Mr. Samuel S. Benedict, Chair                       Dr. Douglas B. Roberts                                 

Mr. Alan Ackerman                                        Dr. Leslie E. Wong, President
Mr. Brian D. Cloyd                                         Ms. Mary C. Lukens (ex officio)       




The Committee reviewed Dr. Wong’s performance against stretch goals for 2007-08 and recommends to the full Board a bonus payment of $7,000.  This is in recognition of the excellent progress in internationalization and the significant work completed on the Road Map to 2015.  This is not part of the formal recommendations and requires a separate vote.


The Committee established a recommendation for Presidential Goals for 2008-09.  This is part of the formal recommendations and does not require a separate vote.  The draft formal recommendation is being revised to add a fourth item of “Discretionary” to the goals.


The Committee discussed with Dr. Wong the results from his evaluation.  The Committee agreed to further explore the possible use of 360 degree evaluations at some future date.



Mr. Benedict adjourned the meeting at 1:00 p.m.




Respectfully submitted,


Samuel S. Benedict, Chair
