What impact does the Provost's leaving have on the NSM? This process was started before we received the letter from the Provost and will continue. The Provost has assured Paula that she will share the plan with the interim Provost.

The committee discussed the plan. Chris Prom will work on the introduction with Scott Walter. Paula will contact the Provost and ask for an extension to submit the plan on May 13. Paula and EC will accept comments through this Thursday, May 7. The report will then be revised, reviewed by the Executive Committee at its meeting on May 11, revised again as appropriate, and submitted to the Provost on May 13.

The committee identified several areas as needing further exploration-Applied Health Sciences, Biology, Literature, and Social Sciences. They are extending the period for carrying out this work until November 30, 2009 in the first three areas and until February 15, 2010 for the last one.
