Chancellor's Award Committees
Should the Senate post on their website the information necessary to nominate someone for one of the awards? K. MacLeod will put the information for the student award online as a template for the other awards. Not all of the awards are managed in the same manner. Making the nominating process easier to access should help the process improve.
Presider will see if the manager of the bookstore, or a representative, can attend the February 6th, 2009 meeting to discuss issues. This discussion was proposed last semester to share ideas and suggestions.
C. Elston questioned if a student has to have full-time status in face to face classes in order to keep their child in the daycare center. Response: online and face to face classes are treated the same. If anyone has more information, please send to the Presider through e-mail.
The meeting was adjourned at 4:39 p.m.
Next Meeting: Monday, February 9th, 2009
Jared Yando, Presider
