ANNOUNCEMENTS

Chair Meredith:


·
Announced that
Professor Linda Ellis was unable to attend today's meeting. Her presentation will be agendized for
a future meeting.

·
Clarified that the
exclusion of agenda items notated as being in 1st or 2nd
reading was an oversight on the part of the Chair. Senators can expect this notation to return in future
agendas. He further clarified the
meaning of “consent” as used on the agenda. Consent denotes that an agenda item is expected to be approved
without dissent, not that the item comes from the standing committee with a
unanimous vote. In order to
alleviate any future confusion, consent will only be used on the agenda when an
item is expected to be approved without dissent and items which are passed
unanimously in committee shall be introduced as such by the standing committee
chair.

·
Announced that
Professor Bernard Wong has resigned from the University Promotions Committee
due to his FERP status. The
elections committee has confirmed that Professor Nancy Reist will be his
replacement.

·
Announced that the
Academic Senate CSU is seeking nominations for the position of CSU Faculty
Trustee. Contact the Senate office
for more information

·
Announced that the
Environmental Studies Program proposal has been revised and is expected to be
heard at the next Academic Senate meeting.
