MPC Academic Senate
December 7, 2006
Short report this week.
We have a packed agenda this week.
I fear we will not get through it.
Program Discontinuance was a last-minute addition
This will be a Second Reading.
If we vote "yes" vote today it will go to the College Council with a recommendation to become Board Policy.
Met for about two hours on November 30, 2006
Discussed the following items:
Appointment of faculty members to the Board Policy on Faculty Hiring Review and Revision Committee
A faculty advisor for ASMPC Student Governance -- on the agenda on February 1
Academic Senate Spring Retreat
Academic Senate Elections in Spring
We need to figure out our terms and how to stagger them.
Does anybody know where any information on this issue might be?
In preparation for this, could each of us please write down on a piece of paper
when we started the Academic Senate
When we think our term is over
Whether or not we "took over" for somebody else in the middle of their term
For example, Fred would write:
started fall 2005
Don't know when my term is over
"took over" for Elizabeth Bishop in fall 2005.
Notes for flex days
Make the schedule look more like a program before we mail it to everybody
Make an ascii e-mail version of the schedule (no formatting)
Thank the Staff Development Committee profusely for organizing the food and logistical issues
List Susan Osorio, Alexis Copeland, Bill Easton, "Brad", and Susan Villa
Get administrative assistant's name from Doug
Still nailing down the title of the retention breakout session
When is the due date for mailing this out to faculty? Opinions from veterans? By Wednesday Finals Week?
