1.        Lynn Fountain called the meeting to order at 3:05 p.m. on December 8, 2003.


2.        The group discussed class scheduling procedures and brainstormed ways to get faculty to teach outside the 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. block of time.


3.        Jim Sowell made the point that any emails addressing this issue need to come from higher than a Dean – probably the Provost.


4.        There was some discussion of how scheduling is handled in COS and COE.


5.        The group recommended that Lynn Fountain a) meet with Vice-Provost Bob McMath to further discuss faculty incentives and b) meet with Jo McIver to learn more about the course scheduling process from the Registrar’s point of view.


6.        The Committee agreed to meet again after the above meeting is held.


7.        The meeting was adjourned at 4:15 p.m.



Respectfully submitted,

Lynn Fountain, chair
