Report of Regents Higher Education Committee to The Board of Regents
Your Higher Education Committee held its scheduled meeting on November 16, 2020. All members of the Committee were present, except Regents Norwood and Cashin who were absent and excused.
MOTION FOR ACTION BY FULL BOARD
Your Higher Education Committee recommends, and we move, that the Board of Regents act affirmatively upon each recommendation in the written report of the Committee’s deliberations at its meeting on November 16, 2020, copies of which have been distributed to each member of the Board of Regents.
Matters Not Requiring Board Action:
Proposed Amendment to Section 50.1(l)to clarify the definition for “university” in New York State. Your Committee heard information presented by Department staff regarding the current definition of “university” in Commissioner’s Regulations and it heard some of the suggestions raised by New York State colleges to revise that definition. After the Committee’s discussion, Regent Collins invited the field to comment on this topic so that staff and Committee members can further deliberate on the matter and make a proposal to the full Board at a later date.
