Annual Report

2009-2010 Faculty Senate

 

The first Committee on Committees meeting was on September 21 at 3:30 pm in 216 I.G. Greer Hall.  The committee at the time included Lisa Gross (C&I), Pam Mitchem (LIB), Patricia Napiorski (FL), Patrick Rardin (P&R), and Jim Stoddard (MKT).   The committee elected Patrick Rardin to serve as chair.  The committee discussed the possibility of asking the senate to form a nominating committee to aid in the recruitment of senators for the executive positions. By unanimous consent, the committee decided not to do so.  The consensus was that the current process worked and that a nominating committee might discourage nominations.  Chair Rardin asked committee members to submit nominations to fill a vacant position on the Academic Policies and Procedures Committee.  The committee agreed that to the extent that it would be possible future business would be conducted through e-mail.  The meeting adjourned at approximately 4:00 pm.
