Schwartz gave the following updates:

  • Campus administration has requested some faculty nominees for the Chief Information Officer (CIO) search committee. The UC will explore this next week.
  • The Affirmative Action in Faculty Employment Committee (AAFEC) has been operating without electing a chair. The members have the impression that AA/EO policies are unevenly applied across campus and are considering collecting data on this topic.
  • The Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Mental Health has asked for a Faculty Senate representative. Schwartz will send a message to the Faculty Senate about this opportunity.

Interim Provost Gronert sought guidance in how to handle non-compliance in Outside Activities Reporting. The UC recommended following standard procedures: a complaint to be referred to the FRRC with recommendations for discipline.
Separately the UC expressed interest to Gronert in knowing how Navigate helps student success (if this has been measured), and in various possible improvements to the system.
