2.        Question Time

The committee had a lengthy and complex discussion concerning what Paula had learned in her talks with Betsy Kruger and Rod Allen in regards to the UGL Head position and regarding the appointment process. She relayed her decision and an announcement will be going out.

 

Some issues about P&T came up in regards to Communication 9 and how campus interprets it. Specifically, should a candidate's research statement be sent out to reviewers along with their cv and publications. Tim Cole has been pursuing this with Peg Rawles and will report back after talking to her again. It was determined that no changes would be made with this year's candidates.

 

Two other confidential items were discussed.
