4. Reasssigned time policy - VCAA Aggrey -- once A&S policy is received; then I will send it out to everyone; please submit your annual reports anyway and the work on the policy will continue; key is to make sure everyone has a plan for the coming year on their research program. The first time someone would lose a course would be Fall of 2008 (if they have been unproductive and have no development plan). Frank Caucci - would like VCAA Aggrey to ask the Deans to discuss this matter within their divisions with their faculty as well as how applied work required by many disciplines can be considered in this policy. Iztok Hozo - in the case that a faculty member does lose their course release can the money saved be placed in a research account for the faculty in that division? VCAA Aggrey – would like the money to stay in Academic Affairs and will be used to benefit all of us through Academic Affairs
