 2. Approval of the Minutes of the March 3, 2000 Meeting
    The minutes were approved as distributed.

 3. Elections
    April 7, 2000 is the deadline for submitting ballots.  After the election results are known, divisions will hold their elections for
    Executive Committee representatives, and we will have to run an election for an "at large" member of the All Campus
    Promotion and Tenure Committee, and for membership on the Teaching Load Review Committee.

    Shortly thereafter we have to send out the choice ballot so faculty can indicate their preference for committee assignment
    for next year.

     May 1, 2000 marks the end of the Vision Process and also the moratorium on the Post-tenure Review issue.  This will be
    one of the most important issues we'll take up in the next year.

 4. Memorial Statement for Herman B Wells.
    Dr Bill Neil, Emeritus Professor of History will read a memorial statement into the minutes at the next Faculty Organization

 5. UFC Report - Paul Blohm
    President Brand expressed strong concern about the Community College and said that if the Higher Education has its way,
    half of the regional campuses could fail.  He suggested it was time faculty, students, and concerned citizen contacted their
    legislators to let them know how they feel about the community college issue.

 6. First Tier Salary Committee Report.
    There was a discussion of the four resolutions being brought forward by the FTSC for the Faculty Organization meeting
    April 21, 2000.

 7. There were discussions of three UFC policies as follows:
    1. Policy on Accommodation for Religious Observances
    2. Policy on Conflicts of Interests
    3. Policy on Undergraduate Inter-campus Transfers
    Each of these issues will require faculty action on this campus.  Complete copies of each policy can be found at the UFC
    web site.
