  2. Information Items

    Jim announced to the group that he and Wayne recently attended a COP Retreat (which included President's, Provost's, and Legislative officers of the six state institutions) responding to the Governor's recent budget announcement. The presidents were able to meet with the Governor's Higher Ed Task Force on Funding to talk about new funding models.

  3. University Policies to Recommend for Approval

    1. CWUP 2-40-030 Alcohol and Other Drug - Wayne Quirk
      Richard DeShields introduced Gail Farmer to summarize the changes to the policy. Gail stated that the only change to the policy is adding an exception clause under "policy implementation and application" to exclude the property of the president's residence and reception center as a "university facility" as referred to in this policy. Sherer Holter recommended PAC endorsement of this policy. Seconded by Bill Vertrees. Presidential approval 9.1.10.
    2. CWUP 1-80-010(4) Duties of Appointing Authorities - Sherer Holter
      Sherer explained that the major change in this policy is to clean up the language regarding electronic signatures. By mid October the electronic PAF process will be up and running, so this needs to be in place. Wayne Quirk recommended PAC endorsement of this policy. Seconded by Sherer Holter. Presidential approval 9.1.10.
    3. CWUP 2-60 University Committees and Councils - Bill Vertrees
      Bill summarized the changes to the budget and finance committee. The changes are basically structural.
    4. CWUP 2-60-040 Campus Site and Development and Master Planning Committee - Bill Vertrees
      Bill summarized the changes to the campus site and development and master planning committee as well. Again, the changes are structural. Sherer Holter recommended PAC endorsement of this policy. Seconded by Wayne Quirk. Bill commended Bill Yarwood and Bob Tosch for their work on this project. Presidential approval 9.1.10.
    5. Renaming of two Divisions: Business & Financial Affairs to Operations and Academic Affairs to Academic and Student Life - Jim Gaudino
      The group had several comments regarding the division name of Operations. The majority of the group believe that "operations" doesn't say enough about the division. Cabinet agreed to leave the division name as Business and Financial Affairs. The name for Academic Affairs will be changed to Academic and Student Life.
  4. University Procedures Reviewed

    No university procedures to review at this time.

  5. Departmental Policies/Procedures Reviewed

    No departmental policies/procedures to review at this time.
