- A proposal to delegate to the president of the university or his designee, the authority to grant degrees in order to enhance service to students whose prospective employers require an official transcript before full consideration for employment or for those who are under consideration for graduate school admission.
- A proposal by the Regents’ Distinguished Alumnus/a Award Committee, to approve two candidates for consideration for the 2017 Regents’ Distinguished Alumnus/a Award.
- A proposal to adopt a faculty practice plan concept and delegate authority to the president or his designee to provide an organizational structure necessary for the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine to recruit and retain the highest quality faculty to deliver clinical services while providing community-based clinical education to students. The proposed practice plan would involve the creation of a separate non-profit entity to employ health care practitioners who would also hold adjunct faculty appointments in the College of Medicine.
