Happy first meeting of the academic year! UC Chair Kris O’Connor reported that for meetings of committees where charters have not yet been officially changed, new members from the new CGS will attend as guests. He also met with members of the College of General Studies to discuss the new Division and hold an election for Divisional Committee members. Three will serve for a full term of three years, two for two years, and two for one year. Ballots were tallied, and Divisional members identified.
UC member John Reisel reported that the Lubar Dean search has a very aggressive timeline – there is a Priority deadline of October 12th for applications. The Committee hopes to complete Zoom interviews with semi-finalists by the end of October, with finalists invited to campus after that.
