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.

72 proposals were reviewed.  12 were eliminated because they did not meet proposal criteria.  60 proposals were ranked and sent to VC Research for funding.  42 proposals were recommended for funding.  17 were funded by the Vice Chancellor's office.

 

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

 

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

Recommend that we either (1) change the name of the grant to reflect the funding process, or we (2) change the funding process to support the intention(s) of the grant.  Currently funds must be encumbered by the end of the current fiscal year.  However, the grant calls for funding throughout the academic year that follows the year in which the proposal was ranked for funding.

 

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

          committee's work during the year).

          A.      Charge: Charge is clear.

          B.      Personnel:  Personnel is adequate.  Special thanks should be given to Lori Lee, who's administrative work and advice was excellent.  Thanks Lori!  Also, Seodial Deena was an excellent co-chair.

          C.      Attendance:  Attendance was excellent.  Faculty who could not attend meetings continued to particpate through email.  No complaints about attendance or work accomplished.

          D.      Responsibilities:  Evenly divided throughout the committee.

          E.      Activities:  N/A

 

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

          effectiveness of the committee.

Please request to the VC Research that ECU continue to provide refreshments.  Our work takes a long time, and the refreshments are very much appreciated!

 

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

            No.  We set our calendar for work next year

 

                     Signed:  Chairperson
