We began with a discussion of activities of the grassroots working group, UWM & MPS Civic Engagement Partnerships and how we can create deeper partnerships with MPS. We then discussed our feeling that further discussions and implementation of the Strategic Plan should wait until the Chancellor search has ended. We also met with the chair of the Codification Committee to review potential changes to P&P Chapters 6.21(2) & 4.04(4), regarding the prevention of potential conflicts of interest within departmental executive committees and faculty standing committees with faculty serving in high-level administrative roles. Specifics of wording went back to Codification for further clarification, and it was agreed that we would review it again when updated. We also reviewed the UC’s report for the upcoming Faculty Senate this Thursday, November 20th.
