1. Approve October 26, 2009 Minutes
Approved with changes.
2. Question Time
The committee decided to extend the deadline for the reports from the Faculty Governance Discussion Groups to December 15, 2009.
Stage one for the TOP hire has been sent to the Provost and we hope for an approval by the end of the day.
Another personnel issue was discussed.
3. Budget (possible faculty retreat)
Campus has asked each unit to provide scenarios for 5, 10, and 15% overall reductions with up to 3% given back this year, due November 17.
There will not be an across-the-board cut. The Provost's office will be looking at the scenarios and determining how much each unit will be cut.
The committee decided it would be a good idea for the Library faculty to come together to discuss priorities, brainstorm and offer the Budget Group and EC advice.
The committee decided to go forward with the ACES and IDEALS positions.
4. Position titles
Deferred to another meeting.
5. Distance Learning Librarian
This position has been put on hold.
6. Emeritus status for a faculty member
EC approved and Paula will send the paperwork to the Provost.
