4.      Accomplishments during the year, especially as addressed through committee goals.  Please include recommendations made to any University agency other than the Faculty Senate that will be noted under #5.

Committee members Jill Matarelli Carlson, Shelly Myers, Kindal Shores, and Yong Wang participated in the ECU Scholarship Selection Weekend, March 24-25, 2007, serving on scholarship selection committees that interviewed scholarship candidates.

The committee reviewed the sections within the Undergraduate Catalog and the Graduate Catalog that discuss scholarships and financial aid.  The committee forwarded recommended editorial changes in these catalogs to the office of the Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Programs.

The committee has prepared to choose the recipients of the Lillian Jenkins, Probey, Andrews, Eastern North Carolina, and Chevrolet scholarships, as it does each spring.  Because of the transition to Banner, the data needed to evaluate eligible students is not yet available.  Members of the committee have tentatively agreed to schedule an additional meeting in the summer, as soon as we receive the eligible students’ folders.  At that time we will forward our recommendations for scholarship recipients to the Office of Financial Aid.

5.       Reports to the Faculty Senate (include dates and resolution numbers).



6.       Business carried over to next year (list in priority order).

a.    The Faculty Senate passed resolution #03-61 (on Aid to Students in Poverty) in December of 2003. The resolution requests that $5 million of the Centennial Capital Campaign be held in endowment, the earnings to be used as grant aid for economically disadvantaged ECU students. This committee should continue to monitor the success of the Centennial Capital Campaign in collecting monies that can be used to aid students in poverty, and to participate as needed in development of criteria for awarding and dispersing such grant aid.

b.    To continue to participate in Scholarship Weekend.

7.       Evaluation of the committee (include anything that hindered or assisted the

          committee's work during the year).

A.     Charge: Appears appropriate

B.     Personnel: Committee worked well together

C.     Attendance: A quorum was present to conduct business at all but one meeting. Schedule conflicts did, however, made it difficult for some members to attend meetings.  However, there was no obvious time when all committee members could meet.

D.     Responsibilities: The committee fulfilled its responsibilities, with the exception of choosing scholarship recipients, which it is prepared to do once the necessary data are available.

E.      Activities: The committee’s workload is relatively low; the committee’s accomplishments were appropriate to its charge.

8.       Suggestion(s) to the Chair of the Faculty and/or Faculty Senate for improving the effectiveness of the committee.




9.       Does the Committee’s organizational meeting next year need to be earlier than the date set this year? 




          If yes, when do you prefer:_____________________________________________
