2. Chancellor' Business
The Chancellor thanked the committee for allowing him to speak now as the Mayor has asked him to serve on the Civil Rights Hall of Fame Committee that will be meeting later today. The Chancellor stated he would miss the September Faculty Organization meeting and that he had three announcements for today.
Questions/Comments asked of and responses from Chancellor Bergland:
University Faculty Council Agenda Committee Meeting: President Brand hosted an Advance (formerly known as a Retreat) and the focus was the Life Sciences.

4. Nominations for Review Committtees for Dean Lovely and Dean Pelliciotti
Committees will consist of five members, four from the division and one from outside. The Executive Committee will select two of the four names from the division and also submit four other names from the division for the VCAA to choose two. The Executive Committee will submit two names from outside the division and the VCAA will select one.
5. Strategic Planning Committee
The Executive Committee has been asked to submit four names to the Chancellor who will choose one to serve on the Strategic Planning Committee. After a long discussion, the Executive Committee will send the names of Schultz, Bodmer, Gallmeier and Russell to the Chancellor.
6. Divisional Representation on the Executive Committee
Clarification is needed regarding the members of the Executive Committee since the Divisions of Allied Health and Nursing have been combined. Tolhuizen moved that the Representatives from the former Division of Nursing and the former Division of Allied Health remain as members of the Executive Committee until the end of their elected terms, Spring 2003. At that time, the new Division of Allied Health and Nursing will elect one member to the Executive Committee. Arshanapalli seconded. Nelson amended the motion to read "Once an Executive Committee member is elected from a duly constituted Division, they will serve out their term". Alan seconded and the motion unanimously carried.
7. Committee Charges
It was suggested that IUN develop its own Faculty Handbook specific to local issues and not in conflict with the University Faculty Handbook. The Faculty Affairs Committee has been charges with developing a draft by March 2003. Several campuses (IUB, IUE, IUSB and IUPUI) have their own handbooks that could serve as a template for IUN.
8. Agenda Items for September Faculty Organization Meeting
Poulard moved and Lindmark seconded and the meeting was adjourned at 2:47 p.m.
