1.  Approval of minutes from 3/10/03 (revised) and 3/26/03

     Approved.

 

2.  Question time

     How will the new payroll schedule affect our pay?  It is unknown at this time how the 5-day discrepancy will be handled by the University.

 

3.  Strategies for dealing with the impending budget situation - Kaufman

     Based on the information Paula has received, there are four main principles:

1).      Protect as many full-time staff jobs as possible
2).      Protect the Collection budget bottom line
3).      Increase revenues where we can
4).      Don’t hide cuts

 

     More ideas were discussed, but nothing concrete can be decided until we know how much the  budget cut is going to be.

 

4.  Appointment of paper preparer and editors for full professor cases - Kaufman

     Paula will call the recommended faculty members and ask them to participate.

 

5.  0% Faculty Appointment for J. Unsworth - Kaufman

     Unsworth’s vita will be distributed and this will be voted on at the next meeting.
