New Business. Chair, J. Tolhuizen, summarized the recent meetings with the Executive Committee, President Brand, and Chancellor-Select Bergland. The campus has a twelve month window of opportunity to identify our strengths and plan for the future. A small committee consisting of faculty, staff, students, and Deans will work over the next two weeks to develop a planing process. This committee will not address substantiative issues. Considerable discussion ensued regarding the "process committee." Some concerns were: the Committee's charge and membership, the future of curriculum offerings, the campus' mission, purpose, and vision, enrollment, recruitment, and retention, research, money, etc.
Adjournment. The meeting was adjourned at 12:00 p.m.
