6. Business carried over to next year

a. Review ECU salary conditions and report to Faculty Senate (See resolution 04-10, passed by Faculty Senate Feb. 2004)

 

b. Proposed policy on serious illness and disability leave (referred back to committee by Faculty Senate on 4-20-04)

 

c. Survey of faculty perks at ECU and other UNC-system universities.

 

7. Evaluation of the committee

The committee’s charge and membership seem appropriate. Attendance of   committee members was sufficient for the committee to meet and accomplish its            goals with the exception of Nov. 13, 2003, when there were insufficient members present.  Lori Lee was a great help to the chair and the committee.

 

8. Suggestions for improving the effectiveness of the committee

If the committee is to continue writing quasi-legal documents such as the policy on serious illness and disability leave, the committee might have to commonly request the presence of a lawyer to assist in the writing of the documents.

 

9. The organizational meeting should be earlier next year, since two items of business carried over need to be dealt with beginning in September.

 

Chair – David Lawrence
