1) Tammy handed out an event card from EMS Minority Education Committee outlining some upcoming social events. She also encouraged everyone to attend.
2) Dave indicated that there will be a Solid Modeling tutorial available for students taking GE 1320. Discussion followed.
3) H1N1—Remember that if 20% or greater of your class is absent that you need to report this using the online form.
4) Rich shared some thoughts from a discussion that took place regarding interdisciplinary projects and community partners. Discussion followed. This type of project might tie all aspects together for ABET purposes.
1) Commencement Speaker—No names have been submitted yet from the College of EMS. Dave indicated that MIE will be putting forth a name. Lisa also requested the names of faculty to serve on the committee along with one student.
2) Furlough day—UWP mandatory furlough day will be Friday, October 16th. Please be sure to include on your phone message that the entire campus is closed that day. Also include a similar message on your email if you feel that it is necessary.
3) EMS Appeals/Academic Standards—Lisa led a discussion regarding what does this group want from the committee and how are we as a college willing to handle students with performance issues. Time suggested that the committee provide a list of questions for this issue to be discussed at the department level. The University Appeals Committee is also having this discussion as well. Lisa will share previous semester data for review at the department level as well.
4) Other--Senior Design projects and intellectual property—how do we handle this? Hall shared his experience and would like to have an open discussion on this topic. Companies are asking our students to sign a non-disclosure agreement and we should probably review this topic.
