Agenda Item: New Business – Review of Proposals

Discussion: The committee reviewed the first 10 proposals by reviewing and discussing each one in turn.


Action Taken: Two actions were taken after discussion: 1) It was decided that the Chair will ask the applicant of Proposal #2 for clarification on the timeline and whether alternate funding is available via DE instruction. 2) A motion was made and seconded to reject Proposal #5 because it constitutes faculty development and because the budget was not feasible within the funding scheme.
