  • Approval of the Minutes
    April meeting minutes were approved.
  • New Business/Announcements/Other Discussions
    Alan Harris agreed to serve as committee chair for this academic year.

    The committee discussed what they would like to accomplish this year and which guests they would like to invite to future meetings. Last year’s committee members shared who the committee met with last year and what discussions took place.

    The committee decided to increase the length of future meetings to separate committee business from guest updates. Additionally before meeting with guests, the committee will submit a list of questions to the guest prior to each meeting.

    Alan will invite Janet Owen to attend the committee’s September meeting to update the committee on the legislative process and university budget from her perspective. Following that, the committee will look at data provided by Dr. Tom Serwatka’s office in response to the committee’s request for an update to a May 2009 report on faculty and administration expenditures.

    Alan will invite Dr. Tom Serwatka and Dr. Jay Coleman to the committee’s October meeting to discuss the data from Dr. Serwatka’s office.

    Alan will invite Shari Shuman to the Committee’s November meeting to update the committee on the entire university budget.
