At its first meeting of the 2017-18 academic year, UC Chair O’Connor updated the committee on his transition into the role. He also discussed a recent meeting with the chair of the APBC regarding operational procedures for that committee over the coming year.
An issue was raised by one of the committee members regarding the use of confidential letters submitted as part of campus research awards and distinguished professor nominations, which the committee plans to address with the Provost at his next visit with the committee.
The primary business for this week concerned identifying University Committee representatives for the various standing faculty committees and the upcoming College of Health Sciences and Lubar School of Business Dean searches.
The next UC meeting is August 29th.
