1. Welcome - Bev

Bev brought treats - thanks!


2.  November 19, 2009 meeting notes

The notes will stand as distributed.


3.  FAQ update - Kate

Kate revised the list of Frequently Asked Questions and asked the committee for feedback.  Several suggestions were given:  include a brief description of what the team does when they are on campus (Bev will write a paragraph), what are the consequences if we are not reaccredited, and make the tone of the document more positive.  After the list is finalized, the questions can be posted to the web site and  could be placed in UNI Online in the spring.


3.  Report launch:  how and when? - Bev

The tentative date for an open forum is February 5, 2010 from 10:00a.m.-12:00p.m.  After much discussion about what the purpose of the forum should be, an ad hoc committee (Al, Karen & Donna) was formed to plan the event and bring suggestions to the next meeting.  


4. President & Provost read report during December - Bev

Dr. Allen & Dr. Gibson did not read the report over the Thanksgiving holiday.  They now plan to read the report during December and Bev will meet with them for feedback.


5. SharePoint site relocated - Shirley

The HLC SharePoint site has been moved from an ITS server to one in Administration and Financial Services.  This will provide improved technical service with the same functionality that we currently have.


6. For the good of the order

Bev informed the committee that she has been offered and accepted the position of Provost & Vice Chancellor at University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.  She will start her new job on April 1, 2010.


The next scheduled meeting is Thursday, December 17 at 3:15 p.m. in the Presidential Room.
