Approval of the Minutes:
Minutes of the 774th meeting on December 20, 1994 were approved.
Remarks by the President:
President Richardson remarked on the status and future of the School of Public Health, noting that its educational and scholarly contributions and energetic leadership have created positive momentum and a feeling of great optimism for the future.
He commented that the University is likely to receive continued strong backing from Annapolis. Despite recent turnover, a number of key state legislators are strong supporters of private colleges and universities. The federal situation is less predictable. Although support at the federal level for basic research remains strong, other issues including indirect cost recovery and support of university programs by the several major federal programs remain unresolved.
Dr. Richardson reported on several positive developments throughout the University. He observed that the recent designation of the Federal Empowerment Zone in East Baltimore will be a great asset to all constituencies.
Remarks by the Dean:
Dean Sommer reflected on the long and productive relationship etween the School of Hygiene and Public Health and the Kellogg Foundation and noted the Kellogg Board of Trustees will meet at the School in the late spring.
He reported on the development of a consumer health education program jointly with the Schools of Medicine and Nursing and requested editorial input by School faculty. He reminded the Advisory Board of the School-wide communications exercise on February 2 whereby faculty and students will be asked to debate the School's role in achieving three major public health goals. He commented on the visit of the Pew Foundation Health Professions representatives who spent a stimulating day with faculty learning about the School's many community-oriented research and educational activities.
Forty senior health professionals from Taiwan have arrived at the School to begin formal coursework as part of the specialized MPH program. Dr. Sommer acknowledged Dr. Mosley and Mr. Hansen for their contributions in setting up this innovative educational model.
