The motion passed unanimously.

III.       Action Item:  Approval of Redbook Changes

            Chapters 2, 3 and 4

Provost Willihnganz reviewed the recommended changes, noting they resulted from previously approved changes to the faculty grievance procedures which affected other provisions; SACS requirements for the evaluation of part-time faculty; and a general “clean up” of unit name changes, title changes and organizational structure.  Dr. Willihnganz noted University administration and the Faculty Senate extensively reviewed the recommended revisions.  Dr. Willihnganz and Ms. Koshewa fielded questions regarding the changes.  Ms. Jackson made a motion, which Dr. Hughes seconded, to approve the

President’s recommendation that the Board of Trustees approve revisions to The Redbook Chapters Two, Three and Four as attached hereto, effective immediately.

            The motion passed unanimously.

            EVP for Health Affairs and Vice President for Student Affairs Job Descriptions

Dr. Willihnganz reported a revision to the job description for the Vice President for Student Affairs was necessary due to the reorganization of duties in the position.  The revision to the Executive Vice President for Health Affairs job description removed the title of “and Chancellor of Health Sciences” as that title was obsolete.  Because job descriptions are Addenda to The Redbook , Board approval is required.  Ms. Jackson made a motion, which Dr. Hughes seconded, to approve the

President’s recommendation that the Board of Trustees approve the revised job descriptions for the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Executive Vice President for Health Affairs as attached, to be effective immediately.

            The motion passed unanimously.
