Minutes for the September 23, 2011 email and vote were presented and approved.


Jeanne discussed the next task for the committee and a path forward to look at the topic of Academic Faculty with regards to Appointment, Peer Review, Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure.  We had a discussion of how to evaluate the information in the current Faculty Handbook and use input from the Task Force Handbook section 4.3.† Also, we must make sure that we stay in compliance with the BOR policies.

John Stein suggested and the committee agreed that we should ask the Task Force if they have a cross reference that maps the Task Force Handbook to the Faculty Handbook.

Action item: Jeanne will communicate with the Task Force and ask if they have a cross reference mapping and to request that someone from the Task Force attend a meeting and discuss the who, what, and why behind their efforts that would help us as we determine how to evaluate and incorporate Task Force information into the Faculty Handbook.

Next meeting scheduled for Thursday, November 3rd, at 11:15.


The meeting adjourned at noon.
