NEW BUSINESS

Campus Equity Week – last week in October

  • Is it worthwhile for us to do something? We had some people who worked on this in the past, but we don’t know if they’re even here any more.
  • We could set up an online forum; it should be easy to come up with a few provocative topics to encourage people to participate. We should use the independent website. President Policano will set up the site by the end of next week and one of our adjuncts will take care of it.
  • Adjuncts are playing a significant role in the education of our students; we should all be aware of this and they should be recognized. And, as RIT continues to emphasize “scholarship”, the number of adjuncts will increase.
  • There is a real range of how many adjuncts/visiting/lecturer positions in each Department.

CIAS faculty wants to meet President Policano about some of the info about AS Standing Committees; will take care of that and report next time.

President Policano and VP Naud will meet with Provost August 10, 2010 @ 9AM. They will talk prior to that meeting to prepare.

John Curtis (national AAUP) will help President Policano create salaries with our peer group which will be helpful for meeting with Provost.

 

Meetings for the coming AY will be in the SAU; President Policano took care of this.

Next meeting Friday September 17, 2010 – 4 to 6PM, 1-2:30PM @ MacGregor’s

President Policano adjourned meeting 2:30 @ PM
