We replaced the phrase "key administrator" with "senior administrator" and decided to require that for boards to be recorded in Faculty Rules and Regulations they be submitted to the FEC for review and to the Faculty for approval. We agreed to modify the charge to the FEC to incorporate this change.
We changed the membership so that it would consist of the faculty chairs of TPA and FAC and the faculty vice chairs of APC and URC.
We decided to include the following paragraph in the Operations section of the description of this committee.
We also decided to move section e. of the Charge to a. and to delete superfluous language from the original section a.
We were informed by Russell Carey that the General Counsel was reviewing the draft description of this committee that he has prepared.
We explored if and how we might address the faculty search monitoring function currently assigned to this committee. Anne agreed to draft language that we could consider at our next meeting.
We changed the description of UCC so that it is now an umbrella committee with nine members, the Registrar and four each drawn from the CCC and the Graduate Council. The four would be the dean, the Faculty vice chair, a second faculty member, and one student, the latter two chosen by the appropriate committee. A faculty member would be chair of UCC.
UCC would be required to meet once per semester to review curricular matters that have both graduate and graduate components.
We agreed to revise the charges of the CCC and the Grad Council to require that they refer curricular matters with grad and undergraduate overlap to UCC. We also agreed to delete from the membership of each of these councils the dean who chairs the other council. Finally, we agreed to incorporate section e. from the charge of the Graduate Council into the charge for the CCC.
