II. DISCUSSION/ACTION ITEMS
A. Schedule for Summer Session: Dean Karen Heikel, CPSLL
Dean Heikel was unable to attend today’s meeting. It was noted that it has been proposed to change the Summer Session schedule to have one short session and two longer sessions, or to have class Monday through Friday instead of Monday through Thursday.
It was noted that if the Senate has an opinion on the Summer schedule, we should take a stand on it.
B. Senate Budget Committee: Members & Meeting Time
Keith Edgerton stated he would get the faculty volunteers together and chair the group. They will discuss a strategy and develop a list of what the committee should see of the budget before going to the full budget committee, perhaps next semester.
C. Faculty Excellence Award Meeting
Johanna Mitchell stated that she had volunteered to attend the March 14 luncheon to choose the Faculty Excellence Award winners for this year. Apparently, the day of the luncheon, the meeting was moved up from noon to 10:00 a.m., so Ms. Mitchell was consequently two hours late and missed almost all of the choosing of winners. They also discussed the criteria for next year.
The meeting adjourned at 4:05 p.m.
