MCGREGOR'S

In attendance:  T. Policano; J. Naud; V. Serravallo, J Aumer, B Price

1. We need to prepare for new faculty orientation. Tom suggested to Vincent to contact the coordinator for confirmed dates. It could be a recruitment strategy for us.
 
We discussed several issues.
 
2. Benchmarking:
 
            Using median v. mean
            Modeling our annual survey to the one used by Syracuse U.
                        The 28 page reports is available at
                        http://su-aaup.org/pdf/report0607.pdf
            The inclusion of Imaging Science into the college wide benchmarking data
                        Professors in the college of science didn’t qualify for benchmarking increases
            Future RIT salary data should be separated: new v. continuing faculty
            Evaluate if the current promotion salary adjustments are adequate
           
3. Fall state conference:
 
Suggest RIT as the host for the fall 2008 AAUP-NY Conference meeting
Try to have the Radisson bid against the RIT Inn & Conference Center
(Fall is usually “upstate”, spring is usually “downstate”)
 
4. Recruitment for local charter:
           
            Develop 12 reasons to join the chapter
            Implement payroll deduction for dues
 
5. Search for Provost:
 
            The chapter will be active.
 
Next summer meeting:
Friday July 27, 2007 1-2 PM

Headstone/plot on campus:
I tried to find a definition of the columbarium, all I found was the following reference to this topic.
