    Welcome and Introductory Remarks

    Jody Nicholson, COAS (Psychology) and Ching-Hua Chuan, CCEC (School of Computing) had elected to remove themselves from the committee in order to apply to the Faculty Development (Scholarships) Grants. As a result, we no longer have a secretary.

    Old business to review while considering how grants for review will be distributed: Each proposal will be reviewed by at least two sets of eyes.

    Chair will send out proposals with rubric Monday, November 2nd by 5:00 pm. All evaluations will be done via Qualtrics to make collection and scoring easier.
