Prior to the meeting, each committee member read section 4 in its entirety.† The committee is pleased with the section and its organization.†† The committee discussed the actions that need to be done prior to sharing with the Executive Board and General Faculty.† These include marking the Statutes and By-Law content, updating titles throughout, and making the format consistent.† There was some discussion about having a website with the Proposed Handbook available for review and comment prior to voting at a General Faculty meeting; Jeanne will pursue this.

Jeanne discussed status of activities for the Institute Task Force and the Institute Policy Library.† She stated that eventually some sections of the current Faculty Handbook may become part of the Administrative Policy Library.†
