(In these minutes: Further discussion of budget and discussion of slide presentation for Campus Assembly)




Pete asked for a more detail budget report. Gary said he could give the committee as much detail as they want but he was concerned about the information not going further than this committee. He added that he and Jacquie are asking units to look carefully at their budget. Pete asked if there was a strategic freeze and if so, who makes those decisions. Jacquie said that Judy Kuechle is working with the Division Chairs and she has their requests. She added that in the end the responsibility falls on her shoulders and we canŐt do anything that will undermine our mission and service to students. She also believes we need to do a full program review. We also need to look at a short term situation and long term situation as related to strategic planning. Andy will work with Gary to get information needed for the committee.


Slide Presentation


The committee provided feedback on some of the slides. Andy said the plan is to post the slides next Tuesday before the Campus Assembly meeting.
