Board of Regents Hear Report on University Performance
BROOKINGSToday at its regular business meeting on the South Dakota State University campus, the Board of Regents heard a report on university incentive fund performance. The Board also set performance targets in three areas for the 2001-2002 academic year.
"Overall the Regents are pleased with the efforts made by the universities to meet the targets set by the Board last year," said Regent President Harvey C. Jewett.
There are five incentive funds.
Performance targets for the 2002 fiscal year were approved by the Board for funds one, two, and four.
"The Regents consider several factors in determining the performance targets. When setting the target for incentive fund one, Access for South Dakotans, among other considerations we took in to account the number of South Dakota high school graduates in 2001, efforts to increase retention and programs in high demand at the universities," said Regents Executive Director Robert T. Tad Perry. "For incentive fund two the Board considered recent enrollment growth which affects the number of students available for the designated programs. The Board also considered changes to the program lists and the popularity of each university's programs. The considerations in setting targets for incentive fund four were past performance and collaborative enrollment as a percentage of total enrollment."
