Follow-up on General Meeting of 5/21/03: Thanks has been extended and received for set-up, clean-up and food. Receipts have been turned in and thank-you notes have been sent to the guests.
Libraries Value Statement: CCEB has no clear response to the value statement.
KU Info: Now under the umbrella of the Libraries.
Group II News: Tyca Griggs has resigned. Marilyn Landon and Kathy Clodfelter have retired.
SDC Workshop Expansion Proposal: There has been no follow-up from either side on the question of adding CPR courses or other less obviously library-related coursework to the catalog of SDC courses offered. The concept will be made a charge of CCPC.
Tuition Assistance for Internship Hours: Sue Hewitt reported that KU Classified Senate is checking into what other institutions do about providing tuition assistance for internship hours.
Mentoring Workshop: Unfortunately, the mentoring program will focus entirely on acclimatizing new faculty to the job for the foreseeable future. Eventually, the program may focus on unclassified and classified staff. CCEB will continue to keep reminding library administration of our interest, especially for Classified staff interested in and/or attending library school.
