Bill reviewed the draft of the report to be sent to Dr. Wharton. Changes were suggested such as:

  • wording changes
  • including the faculty speaker (an elected position), which brings faculty representation to all 5 members of the Faculty Resource and Budget Committee. This addition will also provide a direct conduit to the Executive Council

Other questions arose regarding:

  • how to get members from the OS and PATs. Use the same people from the CPC to assist continuity?
  • whether or not new members should be chosen from specific divisions
  • it was suggested that 2 students share a seat, and it was noted that a non-trad or graduate student might be more involved than a newer student.

Bill will incorporate the changes and redistribute to the members.

An Executive Committee was recommended to organize the efforts of the entire group. Size would be three people. This idea was met with enthusiasm, and Bill will add some language regarding this subcommittee under the committee structure section of the draft report.

Concern was expressed for the buy-in of the faculty into the value-centered budgeting process. Once again it was noted that they still haven’t bought into the strategic plan, let alone another new process. The simplest definition of value-centered budgeting is to put our resources where they are most needed. This process will give us a good base to prepare us for the next time there is a budget or enrollment crunch. A successful process will be the result of good planning and people working together to get comfortable with the issues and figure out what we value.

The agenda for the next meeting will include finishing the draft so that it can be sent to Dr. Wharton and the campus community, and issues of communications.

The next meeting of the CBC is scheduled for Monday, January 8 at 3:30pm in Speare 124.
