BALA 114 and TQ SH204
All leaders submitted updates of the projects (see attached overall summary).
Dr. Tadlock advised that the Cabinet has not addressed his replacement as Cabinet Sponsor to the University Planning Council.
Dave Kern asked for volunteers (use emails) to make up a nominating task force that would begin working on replacing roughly half the members of the UPC who are rotating off in December, 2012. This rotation is designed to bring new energy into the UPC and to encourage leadership development in providing opportunities. The document identifying the make-up of the UPC is attached. It requires a mix of representatives from key organizations and general representatives from the university population. Term Expires January 2013: Dilene Crockett, Dave Kern, Olaf Standley, Christy Landsaw, Jerrett Phillips, Alyssa Buckley, Matt Cochran, Chris Adney, Martin Venneman, Michelle Welch, Tierney Edwards, Megan Weaver, Sofia Price.
The request for proposals was sent to each major stakeholder organization in mid-March requesting submissions by April 15, with some follow-up meetings with Dave Kern. At least one organization was granted a short extension to correspond with their schedule. We have encouraged each organization to review, revise, evaluate and recommend projects that they strongly believe in and that meet the criteria provided in the request for proposal (attached). An all campus email was sent in mid-March requesting proposals through the key organizations, but also encouraged individual submissions to Dave Kern.
Consistent with last years process, the Cabinet and UPC membership will review, evaluate and rank the proposed new projects. There was a general consensus that May was preferable to June, and that we should not wait until the fall. The Cabinet will be contacted to discuss meeting between May 15-25, if possible. Proposals will be sent to all UPC and Cabinet members prior to the meeting to evaluate based on our criteria, and to rank/evaluate.
A decision is pending on AQIP and Pathways. No information was available on the decision date for making the choice.
