In light of the budget discussions, the committee looked at each position they had previously agreed to fund to decide if we should continue to go forward with the searches at this time considering upcoming budget constraints this year and into the next fiscal year. The Committee decided not to fund the German, Scandinavian, Linguistics, and Comparative Literature Specialist and will investigate other internal avenues for filling this need.

The Committee discussed other options for filling some of the other positions on the Position Priorities list and will continue brainstorming about these at future meetings.
