Minutes

1.   Approve minutes from January 9
Minutes were approved by a motion from Harriett Green, seconded by Ellen Swain.

2.   Question time
John met with the Chancellor last week to share with him concerns John has about continuity at our institution and the way to structure to assure continuity.

The Council of Deans will have its spring retreat on Friday. Deans have been asked to bring forward challenges and ways to address them. John will be leading sessions on International Studies and Budget Systems and Reform. JoAnn Jacoby has been appointed to the Campus Budget Oversight Committee (CBOC) and will attend part of the retreat.

John commented that campus units will be submitting hiring plans to the Provost, but they will serve a different function than in the past. The hiring plan will continue to be tied to our budget document. However, the Provost will not be approving our hiring plan or acting in an oversight role, only looking at strategic alignment of proposed hiring and whether we have sufficient funds to cover the positions.

3.   Marketing and Communications Strategy Working Group report and feedback
Deferred to another meeting.

4.   Advanced Technologies Group feedback
EC made suggestions regarding the charge and membership. Bill and Kirstin will make changes and send back to EC before the document is posted.

5.  Reviewers for faculty member
