Debra Short called the meeting to order.
1. Minutes of November 17, 2015 were approved.
1. Debra Short reported that during 2012 -2013, several award recipients received really bad looking certificates. Debra suggested replacing these with a professional looking certificate. The ERC voted that this should happen.
2. Adjunct Faculty – Debra explained that the only award that Adjunct Faculty can be nominated for is Employee of the Year. During the November meeting, the ERC discussed adding an Outstanding Adjunct Award. Debra explained that two Deans got together and came up with requirements for this award and then Debra got together with Will Sandidge. Will suggested that there be 3 awards a year (1 for each division) at $400 each. Anyone can nominate including students. Deans and Departmental heads decide who should win out of the nominations.
The ERC reviewed, made changes and additions to the criteria and approved. Debra will present to the Governance Committee.
The meeting was adjourned at 1:50 p.m.
Respectfully submitted by Connie Deacon for Cathy Beale
