In attendance: David Hough, Russ Brock, Denise Cunningham, Kim Dubree, Janice Duncan, Karen Engler, Stephanie Huffman, Travis Marler, Juli Panza, James Satterfield, Emmett Sawyer, Barri Tinkler, Rose Lee, Sharon Lopinot
A PowerPoint on ADPs included a few changes. Dean Hough discussed a number of new features, and reminded supervisors of the importance of making constructive comments tied to the distribution of scores employees would naturally receive. There should always be room for improvement, and a “3” means the task is being performed adequately. Be accurate and don’t inflate scores. He will have Sharon forward the PowerPoint used at AC to those who are involved in this process.
Budget Committee meets tomorrow morning. At their last meeting, they discussed items to prioritize for the budget. Faculty Advisory Council members met and discussed the projects and priorities so they could rate them. The FAC group agreed on the top 3. The dean sent them an email after the meeting and asked them to prioritize the remaining items (a total of 16) ad to send the information to him. Jim Taylor updated the IT information for the college and gave it to the Dean. All of this information will be given to the Budget Committee to discuss. Numbers 5 (A “Bear” in Every Building), 6 (Bear Partnership), and 7 (Events Bringing Students to Campus) could be bundled with recruitment and retention initiatives. LC members were pleased to see Bear in Every Building and Bear Partnership as a top three item. They thought it was important to have a COE Research Institute. Our college had a Research Institute a number of years ago. Having a research institute would not only help faculty, but raise our profile among other institutes. This item could be bundled with faculty travel funds.
Bear POWER continues to receive much recognition. The goal is to grant certificates to ten students each semester who have completed a two-year residential program. These students should become gainfully employed and live independently by becoming self-sufficient. One student, Rachel Mast, is speaking at a national conference this year. There are three other programs similar to Bear POWER in the state. Over the years along with the other IHEs in Missouri and beyond there could be hundreds of graduates yearly. Rachel Heinz organized the Midwest Inclusive Post Secondary Alliance (MIPSA) meeting on campus Monday. Approximately 80 people attended.
The CAEP site team visit on November 3 – 5 will afford faculty, community, and school partners an opportunity to demonstrate how their programs align to CAEP Standards and in most cases exceed expectations. Our college does a great job with programs, teaching and recruitment. Barri reported that the CAEP Site Team review starts Sunday. They will interview two different school and community groups, including but not limited to former and current students. On Monday they will be discussing various standards with different groups during the day. On Tuesday they will discuss findings and recommendations during an exit meeting with the provost, dean, deputy provost, and associate dean. The site team has seven days to send their report to MSU. Dean Hough will share this information with everyone as it becomes available. Dean Hough believes we will have only one or two AFIs, perhaps none, depending to the make-up of the site team which all too often determines outcomes. Department Heads, CAEP Team members, Rose and Sharon need to be on campus Monday in case the review team asks for more information on something. Barri said typically they ask for clarification of something discussed. We can also put information in the rejoinder if we feel it should have been discussed further, or should have been discussed but wasn’t.
The meeting was adjourned at 10:22 a.m.
