Minutes: Policies and Procedures Committee September 26, 2007

Present: Dejong (chair), Cheseboro, DeLancey, Gabbert (recorder), Horney, Lewis, Berg

Recommendations for reviewing future policies:  Paula Gabbert will be recorder for the year.  Copies of policies will be sent via email but not printed and distributed during meetings. 

Assignments for Policy Review Follow-ups for 2007-2008 were made and attached.

File 106.0 (Furman University Intellectual Property Policy)  This is a new policy to address requirements for accreditation.  Originator needs to be changed to the Academic Dean.  A few minor editing revisions were suggested but do not need Kazee’s approval.  Gabbert will email Kazee possible concerns that may be raised during the faculty discussion of the policy.  The policy makes reference to Administrative positions that may change soon, so the policy will be tabled until the November faculty meeting at which time the Administrative positions will have been finalized.

File 152.1 (Emeritus Professor or Emeritus Associate Professor)  This policy was up for review for 2007-2008.  No changes were proposed.

File 191.5 (Faculty Directory)  This policy was up for review for 2007-2008.  Several revisions were suggested.  The revisions and questions will be sent back to Status.  In addition, the committee will suggest to Status that they consider changing the originator of this policy.

File 187.4 (Postal Service)  This policy was up for review for 2007-2008.  Revisions were suggested and will be sent back to Status.  In addition, the committee will suggest to Status that they consider changing the originator of this policy.

File 152.5 (Faculty or Staff with Family Relationship)  This policy was up for review for 2007-2008.  No changes were proposed by Status, but changes to this policy were previously discussed by Status and Policies and Procedures in 2005.  This revised policy was never brought to the faculty.  The revisions proposed in 2005, as well as some additional suggested revisions, will be sent to Status for consideration. 

Our next meeting is scheduled for October 31st at 3:00pm.  The location of this meeting will be announced later.
