The minutes of our April 27, 2005 meeting were approved as presented.
We approved the 2004-2005 Annual
Report. Frank Lambert will give the Annual Report at the Annual Faculty Assembly
on Tuesday, October 11, at 3:00pm, at the GLC.
We elected our new Chairman: Mary
Ann Ingram of ECE. We recognized the outstanding job that Frank Lambert has done as Chairman of the previous year.
We reviewed the projects that we
will continue into the 2005-2006 year:
- Automatic External
Defibrillators These have popular support, but no funding. Our priority
going forward is to explore ways to fund the installation and maintenance
of AEDs across campus. The committee agreed to devote the next meeting
to this issue, by inviting administrators from Human Resources, College of Engineering, School of ECE, and others.
- Safety on Campus Mary Ann
Ingram will follow-up with Chief Crocker to learn the results of the
Campus Safety Walk that was held on April 18.
- Violence Against Women Gail
Palmer is a member of the Violence Against Women Task Force, and she will
keep us informed on the progress of that group.
- Motorized Carts The
committee views this as an important safety issue because the number of
carts on campus is growing, many are not street-worthy, they sometimes
move among pedestrians, and there is currently no policy governing their
use. A proposal for a policy was presented to Bob Thompson in the fall of
- Bus service on Bobby Dodd
and Cherry Streets Interest in this has been indicated by certain
faculty on the hill and certain students accessing the library. The
committee agreed to request that Bob Furniss address this issue for us in
one of our meetings this fall.
- The committee agreed to
take up the new topic of multi-campus governance. The committee agreed to
request that Monte Hayes, the Chair of an ad hoc committee addressing this
issue, attend one of our meetings this fall.
- Frank Lambert will contact Said Abdelkhalik about replacing
Lionel Lemarchand on this committee.
- Next Meeting will be
scheduled for early October.
