Parking prices likely to go up next year, waiting to hear back from parking commission pending a consulting report. (possibilities: parking garage at Robinson; age/term service vs. cost only)
Paul Cartter (Public Relations), Exec Vice-Chancellor for Legislative Affairs. 22nd of December breakfast to discuss Alternative to Civil Service
Possibility to have 2 Legislative Information Days: 1) Alternative to civil service (to happen prior to position paper) 2) Position paper
Kathy Jansen met with Regents Classified Senate Presidents who were supportive of the Alternative to Civil Service proposal (change from past). Now KAPE biggest obstacle. Need to let legislature now that the idea was from staff, not imposed by University. Also thought to work with local HS and Elementary and BOE to convince legislature to think of University more one and the same with the rest of the education framework. Other universities are taking this approach (KState)
Rumors, news stories: Big changes to KPERS, but unsure- maybe privatize part of it. (401K).
One opening on the Senate (EEO5 )
Tuition assistance for employee dependents: Regents has yet to approve anything, but would most likely leave it to the institutions to decide. SenEx is trying to decide what its stance is and relay that to administration. Class Senate concerned that it is large cost that doesn’t benefit all. I.e. Definition of dependent, existing scholarships that already cover this (Coca-Cola).
Not meeting in Dec.
Unveiling event calendar in January. Waiting on tech issue on web to meet again. No official announcement that SDC is IS-wide. Suggest to SDC that it be put on their website.
Grp 1 results
8 retuned ballots, officially only 7 valid votes for Rebecca Claassen. Will check on remaining 1 that was not clear.
