30 April 2002
7:30 – 8:50am

Present: Kent, Moore, Landry, Fahey, Mathis, McCahan, Barry, Hage, Fogleman, Freyhofer, Ramsay, Crangle, Wixson. Excused: Huckins, Campbell, Wilhelm. Absent: Flack.

The minutes of the April 23rd meeting were approved as written.

The committee unanimously voted to approve the budget recommendation draft with a few modifications.

A recommendation was made that the chairs of the CPC and the CBC attend a department chair meeting to discuss the details of the planning/budget process.

It was reported that today we have 25% more classes than in 1990 while producing10% fewer credits.

It was suggested that a fall meeting of the Curriculum Committee, the CPC, and the CBC be held for an in-depth discussion of the issues surrounding capacity.

The committee meeting time was brought up again. A suggestion was made to begin the meeting at 8:00 instead of 7:30, and end it a little after 9 due to some not being able to arrive before 8am. Cabinet members in attendance thought that might be a workable solution.

Ed Wixson will call the first CBC meeting of the CBC next fall, when a chair will be elected. Any new representative names should be forwarded to Bill Crangle as soon as they are known.

The committee adjourned for the year at 8:49.

Respectfully submitted,
Nancy Pettengill, Scribe

The 26-year-old veteran isn’t referring to his time in Iraq as a motor transport operator in the Army Reserve. He’s talking about coming home. O’Sullivan joined the Army Reserve right out of high school, at an age […]
