Minutes: A&S Planning and Budget Commmittee

September 13, 2000


Members present: Steve Edgell, George Barnes, Pamela Takayoshi, Bruce Adams, Julia Dietrich, Susan DeWitt, Linda Gigante, P. J. Ouseph

Meeting called to order at 11:00.

Minutes approved as circulated. Committee agreed that drafts of meeting minutes would be distributed via email; revisions should be suggested within forty eight hours; at end of forty eight hours, the minutes would be submitted to Barbara to be put on the Web.

Committee reviewed Reinvestment Strategies Report for College of Arts and Sciences. Some questions about how the report was implemented; how did departments accommodate the reallocation of lecture lump sums? Departments have adjusted to change & savings have been absorbed.

Linda Gigante asks not only how much the college saved from the reallocations and enrollment increases, but how much did the university make with increased enrollments? (College doesn't get money directly from increased enrollments). Can we as committee come up with a figure on how much money the university made?

Committee needs to set an agenda for the upcoming year. Bruce Adams suggests meeting with Dean Brennan to set priorities for committee's work this semester. George Barnes will meet with Dean Brennan to discuss this.

Meeting adjourned 12:00.
