1. The minutes of the meeting of 01/23/08 were approved.
2. A non-Agenda item
was brought to the committee (Vice Chancellor Mageean ) concerning a potential
conflict with the charge of EPPC and UCC and Appendix F (1.a).
After light discussion
Rigsby noted that we should seek a timely response from appropriate senate committees regarding relevant segments of the UNC Tomorrow plan that might apply in their area. However, she also noted that not all committees or units would need to make changes in that the plan was designed only to make changes where necessary.
The committee agreed that the next meeting would be dedicated to working out issues relevant to the UNC Tomorrow plan.
4. The committee reviewed and approved changes to Appendix C (Sections I.a, C, E: II.a, b, and c: III: V) [see Appendix C 2-08.doc]
5. The committee discussed two questions poised by the Dr.
Bauer in the English Department (1. Can a department have more than one
Personnel Committee (e.g., a separate committee for Fixed Term Faculty)? 2.
Does a curriculum committee have to go to the full faculty for a vote, or can
each concentration be responsible for its own curriculum? Since these questions would likely constitute
a change to a unit code,
The Unit code Screening Committee has been informed of the potential changes.
After discussion, the committee authorized Martinez to contact Dr, Bauer and indicate the answer to both questions was “yes”.
4. The meeting was adjourned at 4:50 pm.
