Special committee on executive compensation to make recommendations to full Board of Regents
What: University of Minnesota Board of Regents meeting?
When: Thursday, June 7 and Friday, June 8?
Where: 600 McNamara Alumni Center, 200 Oak St. S.E., Minneapolis
MINNEAPOLIS / ST. PAUL (06/01/2012) —The University of Minnesota Board of Regents Special Committee on Executive Compensation and Administrative Transitional Leaves will report its findings and recommendations to the full Board at its meeting Friday, June 8.
Regent Richard Beeson, committee chair, and committee members Regent John Frobenius and Regent Dean Johnson have met three times since April examining practices and policies related to compensation of senior leaders at the university.
On Friday they are expected to recommend:
“With these changes, the public can be confident that this Board has robust oversight of executive compensation and that future separation agreements will be prudent,” Beeson said. “These new policies and practices will put the University of Minnesota at the forefront nationally with regard to formal policy and governance oversight of senior leadership compensation.”
Also on the Board of Regents docket is a work session in which Vice President of Human Resources Kathy Brown and Lincoln Kallsen, director of financial analysis for the Office of Budget and Finance, will outline analysis being done to better define the university-wide workforce and administrative costs. This session will be held from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m. Thursday, June 7.
The goal of the workforce analysis will be to view university workforce changes historically and moving forward through a replicable method of measurement. The objectives for the study are to define the university’s workforce in terms of job duties, identify job categories needing further exploration and potential expansion and construct metrics for defining and understanding operational overhead.
Other Board of Regents agenda items include:
The Board of Regents will act on President Eric Kaler’s proposed FY 13 budget which advances the goals he outlined in his State of the University speech March 1: to keep the U affordable for students; invest in the U’s excellent faculty, research infrastructure, technology, student aid and scholarships; use state resources responsibly and hold down costs.
