Consultant for Examiner Evaluation
C. Frazier was unaware of the status of the consultant for the Examiner evaluation. D. Holt is contacting Frank Adams.
Revised Writing Schedule
C. Frazier updated the writing schedule to reflect current working plans on the application.
Review of Revised Draft Questions 6, 7, & 8
See attached document noting revisions discussed about the revised draft questions 6, 7, & 8. Additional notes include:
A revised flowchart for question 8 was distributed. The yellow highlighted boxes indicate committees that are highly represented. A “Chairs Forum” box should be added next to “Council of Deans” and an arrow directing to “Administrative Council”. Also, a “Professional Staff” box and “CTS Staff” box should be added.
Discussion was held on members of CTS Staff and Professional Staff being involved in the Strategic Plan initiatives. Representatives from both groups serve on committees/councils, such as University Planning, Budget Review, and Administrative Council. Still, many are unaware of the process.
Discussion was held on the appropriate process of potential action projects receiving some type of assessment review. This will be discussed again at the next meeting.
Review of Draft Question 1 Criteria 1 & 2
See attached document noting revisions discussed about draft question 1 criteria 1 & 2.
