Minutes from April 6, 2010 and April 20, 2010 were approved.
1. Julie announced that Math 4030 and 3630 sessions are open. People on the waiting list have been notified; however, they are not the ones signing up.
2. GE is moving forward with hiring Academic Staff position.
3. CEP is also moving forward with hiring Academic Staff position.
4. Mohan’s retirement party is Friday.
There will not be a meeting next week. If necessary there will be a meeting during finals week.
Julie asked about Assessment Reports from departments. Discussion followed. Bring these to the next meeting.
Rich excused himself and Duane Ford joined the meeting. He wanted to discuss the Interim Dean position for the College of EMS. Duane shared a draft of the position description with an application deadline of 5/31/2010. He also indicated that any candidate that has applied for the current position cannot apply or be considered for the Interim Dean position. Discussion followed. Duane asked for a committee to assist in making the decision and recommended that it would be one person from each department--mostly likely the chair unless he/she applies for the position.
Dennis Shields will assume his responsibility as Chancellor on July 1, 2010.
Tammy asked about an increase in furlough days. Duane indicated that the state budget is not any better or worse at this time. A lot will depend upon tax projections when they are released.
Julie asked about a decision to have students take 12 credits of on-line courses. This is only a recommendation.
Meeting adjourned at 2:53 p.m.
