The UC discussed changes to external grant funding support for graduate RAs being suggested by Mark Harris.  In particular, it is being suggested that grants request funds for the in-state tuition for RAs, and not for the non-resident tuition remission.  This will be accompanied by other changes payment of tuition for TAs/PAs/ RAs by individual schools and colleges.  The UC also briefly discussed the potential problems regarding post-docs working more than 40 hours a week while being paid a salary below ~$48,000; the federal government will be requiring these individuals to be paid time and a half for overtime.

The UC met with Chancellor Mark Mone for updates on campus issues.

The UC also worked through the draft of the post-tenure review policy.  Changes discussed will be incorporated into the policy, and it will soon be ready for consideration by the Faculty Senate.
