Committee on Committees
Committee Assignment Meeting
Capers Hall - Room 117
11:00am Thursday, February 28, 2012
Committee Chair Scott Lucas called the meeting to order at 11:05 a.m. Members attending were Scott Lucas (Chair), Mei Chen, Kent Murray, Liz Arnold, and Robert Barsanti. Kirsten Steele was not in attendance.
Chairman Lucas led the meeting by utilizing a spreadsheet via Smart Board to equitably assign committees based on faculty members’ requests. The committee systematically replaced members of committees whose terms have expired and were able to honor faculty requests. Term years were updated to ensure committee assignments fall within the limits of service as outlined in committee charters.
This is the second formal meeting of the academic year, but members were advised of the potential of another meeting pending the announcements of sabbaticals from the Provost Office.
Chairman Lucas discussed a request from Faculty Council Chair George Rudolph to develop a statement for the website to assist faculty with questions regarding committee assignments.
The Committee on Committees has communicated with the Undergraduate Admissions committee (Christopher Wright) and the Faculty Employment Committee (Bill Woolsey) to determine if they will remain a standing committee or change to an Ad Hoc committee.
The meeting adjourned at approximately 12:45 p.m.
