Resolution Commending Board of Trustees on Commissionaing Fisher Report

March 22, 2006

Whereas, Auburn University’s Board of Trustees commissioned an institutional evaluation preparatory to initiating a search for a new President; and 

Whereas, the report prepared by a team led by Dr. James Fisher was based on interviews with trustees, alumni, and members of all the campus constituencies including undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, administrative and professional employees, as well as deans and other senior administrators; and  

Whereas, in commissioning the Fisher report, the Board of Trustees demonstrated a willingness to discuss openly problems that impede Auburn University from achieving its full potential as a leading institution in research, instruction, and extension; 

Therefore, be it resolved that the Administrative and Professional Assembly commends the members of the Board of Trustees for their leadership in promoting the greater good of Auburn University; and

 Therefore, be it also resolved that the Administrative and Professional Assembly stands ready to work with the Board of Trustees in an open and constructive manner to achieve this goal.
