  1. 3.      Unretreat items – Prioritize and Plan

Nine topics were identified:



Attendees will be asked to choose  topics from this list..


It was determined that each table will discuss the topic for one and one-half hours and then people will move to another table to discuss a second topic for one and one-half hours. The groups will break for lunch. There will be a facilitator and a recorder at each table. After lunch the recorders for each group will report out to the whole group.


  1. 4.      Approve Minutes from December 2

Minutes were approved by a motion from John Wagstaff, seconded by Mary Laskowski.


  1. 5.      Question time

After consulting with several faculty members, John Wilkin has decided to table the Humanities Hub idea and move forward with hiring a History, Philosophy, and Newspaper Librarian and moving CAM. We will keep 220 Library available while we give thought to a larger coordinated planning effort.


The priority list went to the Senate Committee on the Library. We may get some input from them.
