Department chair evaluation-There was a lengthy discussion concerning the document currently posted to the FPC intranet. After several rewordings, the group unanimously approved a proposal. This proposal will be forwarded to University Council for further consideration and can be found at the end of these minutes.
Rotating department chairs-Review of this document was deferred to next week’s meeting. The group was asked to review the document prior to the meeting.
Tom Crute raised a question concerning budget implications when a chair rotates out of the position and the chair stipend was no longer applicable. The group agreed that this was something that would need to be addressed in any final policy and procedure document.
Lyceum Committee-Tom reported that the subcommittee would be meeting on October 6.
New Business- Tom asked if our current grading scale (no plus or minus grades) was institutional policy or system policy. Katherine Sweeney indicated that she thought it was a system policy but would have clarification at the next meeting.
