Agenda Item: Announcements
Chair reported on his meeting with the Committee on Committees regarding proposed changes to EPPC charge. Said committee requested that EPPC reconsider it recommendations based on two points: 1) it is not necessary to change the charge for the Graduate School Administrative Board to have representation on EPPC, since the Chancellor, Provost, and Vice Chancellor for Health Sciences are free to choose their representative from among the membership of that body—nor did the Committee on Committees deem it advisable to remove either Vice Chancellors’ representation 2) Appendix F, which restricts voting privileges concerning graduate school matters to faculty with full graduate faculty status, was approved by neither any Chancellor nor by the Faculty Senate. Therefore, although it remains part of the Faculty Manual, its should be deemed a policy document for use within the Graduate School only.
Action Taken: The committee agreed by consensus not to resubmit the proposal to the Committee on Committees.
Assigned additional duties to: The EPPC charged the chair with informing all concerned parties, and with urging that Appendix F be updated and put through the approval procedure specified by university guidelines for inclusion in the Faculty Manual.
Chair informed the committee that the Yardley Group Report is a first draft and not yet policy, and therefore should not be used in the evaluation of proposals.
Action Taken: None
Assigned additional duties to: NA
