1. Review and approval of minutes from March 27
Minutes were approved
2. Question Time
Regarding the Bylaws discussion on email, what is EC’s role? The faculty, at a Faculty Meeting, will need to determine if they think this issue should be sent forward to the Bylaws Committee. Until then EC has no role.
3. 5Y Tenure Cases
The committee discussed two cases that FRC flagged for further review and finalized the reviewer lists for faculty up for P&T.
4. Strategic Priorities for evaluating position requests/draft template
EC appointed a subcommittee of Lynne Rudasill, Cindy Ingold, and Chris Prom to draft a list of strategic priorities. Once the document has been discussed and revised by full EC, Chris will send it out along with a template for Faculty to use when requesting positions.
