EC would like to have a discussion at the next faculty meeting regarding the Employment Guidelines for Specialized Faculty Holding Non-Tenure System Positions document. John Wilkin will discuss the new framework that is emerging and Bill will discuss what the Library can do in response to the document.
RDS Search - 5 candidates have been interviewed and the search narrative has been completed. A recommendation will be made to John Wilkin this week.
Head, Law Library Search – the search is ongoing.
EC made recommendations and John Wilkin will contact the individuals.
EC discussed the pros and cons of having a committee of chairs. It was determined that we need the same documentation available to all chairs. There has been some work done on a Search Committee Manual. Kim will check to see if that is up-to-date and where it is located.
This was deferred to the March 3 meeting. EC members will read the Employment Guidelines for Specialized Faculty Holding Non-Tenure System Positions document prior to the meeting for background information. [http://www.senate.illinois.edu/sc1407rev.pdf]
