We meet today and talked about a variety of topics. With the demise of annual merit exercises, the annual review process has been one casualty that impacts our ability to promote the teaching and research of the institution to the public. We discussed how scholarship and creative contributions could be documented in a central location (i.e. such as a dashboard) and how it could be highlighted better.

Chancellor Mone joined us and we discussed the ongoing budget crisis, how UWM will be damaged, student retention issues, and the tenure policy document, which has passed through the UW System Tenure Task Force. It is unclear if campuses will have an opportunity to provide comments on this document before it is taken up by the Education Committee at the next Regents meeting in February.
