Executive Committee Minutes
April 13th, 2007
Attending: Bodmer (president), Coffin (UFC representative), Caucci, Dorin,
Flint, Hozo, Mulcahey (for Delunas),
The meeting was called to order by president Bodmer
The minutes of the 6 March 2007 were approved
- The following matters
- We must discuss the
matters of the committee in committee rather than e-mail.
- There are a number
of committees arising on campus which exclude the faculty and supersede
what faculty committees are charged to do.
- We need to
re-evaluate the committees, and to that end the president will send out
a questionnaire this week to ask what the committees have done and what
they see as their tasks for the coming year. We then need to charge the
committees in the fall 2007, the next academic school year.
- We need to reengage
the administration as to what their sense of faculty governance is.
- We need to evaluate
whether having an affirmative action member on every search committee
has in fact broadened the candidate pool or resulted in increased
diversity in hired positions.
- We need to express
our concern with having deans on the elected faculty First Tier Salary
Committee, as stated by the VCAA.
- Once Health and
Human Services is developed, we will need to change representation to
various committees, including the Executive Committee, which will
require a constitutional change.
- When members are
unable to attend the Executive Committee meeting, they need to send
replacements, as Professor Delunas has done.
- A topic for the new
year is the rules and practices of granting teaching awards, including
how long before a teacher can reapply.
- The meeting was
adjourned 12:58 p.m.
