Group Reps Send special invitation email to new employees to attend General Mtg
Yesterday mtg with Anna Hines, facilitator. Frustrations re: unilateral changes, adding IS members without any direction/charges re: these changes. Added people and had to accommodate less frequent meeting schedule. Have had programs that people do not attend. There is no incentive.
Brainstorming a more effective use of committee’s time. Talking about disbanding committee, as we know it. Recommend not as Library SDC, also not governance, rather administrative (since major changes have been administrative initiated). Administration/Denise Stephens office should make effort to discuss future direction of committee, esp. with involvement of IS-wide. No strong recommendations of what it should be, but more that what it is is not working.
Will provide a report of recommendations to LFA and CCEB.
Mary Ann joined the Exec Board. Minutes from Apr 6th Executive Council Meeting: KU Admin hopes to add to the pay increase.
FOX NEWS sat in on classes because SenEx has been discussing language proficiency of professors. Went to another (unauthorized) class and aired an inflammatory report. Math department complained citing intellectual property protection. KU will not pursue due to negative publicity.
Talk to Mary Ann if you are interested in Classified Senate, still potential openings.
As University employees, will probably not participate in Legislative Info Day as have in past and will likely be combined with entire University presentation to the Regents and legislature.
Provost meeting talked about flat rate tuition plan. Evens out as paying higher tuition for the first 2 years and lower the last 2 years. As accredited, we are rated on 4 year grad rate (currently low). Need to work out how 5-year schools are figured (we are high in the 5 year grad rate). Student Senate approves, student and parents like it.
Workgroup for USS has been working towards Regents presentation for June agenda, must have ready by May. Working on the handbook: longevity bonus (decision for lump sum or divided has not been decided). Also to work on the appeals process, since we will no longer be connected to Civil Service Board.
Need help with production of the newsletter (layout/design). Volunteers?
Minutes of Dean/HR Lib meeting of Apr 28th, 2005.
