President’s Staff Meeting

February 14, 2011
Committee Reports:
Geoff Hicks reported on the Curriculum Committee and stated the members meet to consider new curriculum and changes to curriculum. Geoff stated if these are approved, they are presented to the Local Board for their approval and then on to the State Board for theirs.
Dianne read a report submitted by Leticia Forster on the Employee Recognition Committee. She stated “Employees may not self-nominate” has been added to every nomination form emphasizing that an employee cannot nominate his/her self or his/her own department due to possible conflict of interest. The email to “everyone” announcing the nomination period of February 1 through March 15 and providing the link to nominate an employee(s) was sent out. Once a completed form is submitted, it is sent directly to Human Resources for confidentiality purposes. HR will then gather all of the nominations and report back to the ERC. Wil Perez will be placing the nomination forms on SharePoint 2010 once it is implemented. Tom Sparhawk will chair the Outstanding Faculty Committee in order to choose the recipient of the Outstanding Faculty Award which will be presented at graduation.
