Assessment survey results:
– PATs and OS are concerned that their welfare committees were left out of the Joint Committee process.
– Opinion was expressed that not all sources of information available at the joint committee meeting were listened to or heard.
– Decision was made to invite the OS and PAT Welfare Committees to the joint sessions on 10/29 and 12/17.
– Much discussion followed on making change happen and insisting on good process towards a cultural shift. Must insist on follow-up and adherence to Joint Committee measures A through I.
Nick suggested a one-page encapsulation of what value-centered budgeting is, and what we’re trying to accomplish with it. He is concerned that too many people don’t follow the discussion or don’t have an appreciation for the process. It hasn’t sunk into people yet that their contribution will be directly related to future budget resources. The Executive Committee will look into this.
A suggestion was made to give everyone present at the Joint Committee meetings a list of invitees along with the committees they represent. An agenda for specific discussion topics should be sent out ahead of time, and thought put into how to get the group talking, and who will take the lead on what issues. The Executive Committee will work on this. It was suggested that the president (or VP) charge these committees with coming to a consensus on some results. The president should perhaps be directing all of the committees to do their work and report back to the next joint meeting. The curriculum committee, in particular, needs to take a proactive, rather than reactive, position.
The next CBC meeting is Tuesday, September 24 at 8am in HUB 119. The agenda will include the results of the FY02 budget. The Faculty Budget and Resource Committee will meet on opposite Tuesdays, and will formulate a charge to the faculty.
