 President's Report

The minutes from the 1.26.2009 meeting were approved. 


B. Meckel:  Seems to be a lot of individual issues that are being presented.

C. Elston:  Can you use enrollment information to help with the issue?  response-We get that from N. Smith each Monday.

L. Weinberg:  There were some books that were not available until the second or third week.  There are new federal guidelines that state that a book list needs to be attached to course schedules; response:  We have that information.  Barnes and Noble is working on getting the book list attached to the schedule.

Motion (J. Taylor), Seconded (T. Hamblin):  Review the need for a resolution to the Chief Academic Officer to create a task force to deal with the integration of the Higher Education Opportunity Act into the course schedules.

 B. Meckel: What is the compliance rate with turning in book orders?  response: I don't know; want to get used books in for the students.

T. Hamblin: How many did not turn in book orders?  response:  Six book orders came in the first week of class; one order was from a faculty that was just assigned the course.

B. Meckel: How many were turned in after the date assigned by Barnes and Noble?  response:  After Christmas 12 more orders came in.

J. Tessier:  Is this an issue to connect to promotion and tenure?  L. Weinberg:  We need to hold ourselves accountable.

T. Hamblin: Did you go to the Deans?  response:  Had a difficult time getting to the deans and their secretaries.

Motion (J. Smith) to table the issue.  Seconded (B. Meckel).  Abstention by T. Hamblin
