EC has set the policy that unit heads should be able to make reassignments in their own unit without consulting EC. New titles must be common use titles.

Divisions will have until October 17 to send positions requests to EC. This will be done in the usual process. The Divisions will be asked to think creatively about filling positions and what they will do if a position cannot be filled.
Some criteria the committee discussed in determining whether to fill positions included:
1. Accreditation requirements
2. Previous commitments
3. Unit Head positions
4. Impact with quantitative data
5. Uniqueness of expertise

We will invite Karen Schmidt to the next meeting to answer questions.
