Actions Taken by the Senate Executive Committee
Wednesday, November 8, 1995
- Academic Planning and Budget Committee and Capital Council. Past
Chair David Hildebrand reported that the Capital Council had not met
since the last SEC meeting. The Council has heard that the University is
working to integrate the capital budget with the operating budget, so
that investments are coordinated with operating plans.
He also noted that the Academic Planning and Budget Committee had
been working intensively to review, modify, and improve the draft of the
University Strategic Plan, and that the President would present the
draft plan to SEC at its next meeting.
- December SEC Meeting Changed. The Chair amplified the above comments,
noting that the President had other, unbreakable commitments for the
time of the next scheduled SEC meeting. SEC agreed to reschedule the
next meeting to December 13, at which time the President will discuss
the plan and accept comments.
- Senate Nominating Committee. At the October meeting five faculty
received 50% or more of the vote requiring a runoff election for the
remaining three positions. At the November meeting a runoff election was
conducted for the three vacancies and one SEC member was elected to the
committee (see below).
- Proposed Revised Judicial Charter. The Provost participated in the
protracted SEC discussion on several issues modified by a SEC
subcommittee after conversations with the Provost. Consensus was reached
on most of the points. The subcommittee was charged to draft a summary
of the comments made during the meeting, to try to work out the
unresolved points with the Provost, and to keep SEC informed of any
problems that arise in the future.
- Faculty Members for Council Committee on Committees. SEC voted on a
slate of nominees for five faculty to serve on behalf of the Faculty
Senate on the University Council Committee on Committees.
