- Marsha Stock proposed that the Senate form a task force on academic integrity to recommend a policy and process for reporting and responding to academic misconduct. Lynn will post an announcement on Delhi Today and those interested will contact Bob Fisher who will facilitate this group. Lynn will articulate a charge and email it to senators for feedback.
- Anyone interested in serving on the CADI Board, contact Lynn.
- Check Delhi Today for the Senate election ballot. Balloting will be done through Survey Monkey.
