RPG Committee Meeting
20 March 2007
Present: Noel Kane-Maguire, Cherie Maiden, Shelly Matthews, Derek Parsons, Hamp Sherard (Chair), Liz Smith, Linda Bartlett
The committee discussed and evaluated project proposals submitted by 17 faculty members from 10 departments. A total of $31,678 in funds was requested. The committee used its remaining funds and awarded $20,460 to fund the 17 projects.
The committee received a proposal from Dean Bonnie Mullinix to consolidate all faculty grant submissions (to RPG, FDC, and CTEL) into a single location and system. The committee briefly discussed the proposal, noting several areas of concern. No action was taken at the meeting in order to allow committee members more time to study the proposal.
The committee continues to have a problem with a few faculty members who are not submitting post-project or post-sabbatical reports. At its 18 April 2006 meeting, the committee adopted the following policy in response to this problem: faculty members who have not submitted post-project or post-sabbatical reports will be ineligible to apply for future grants or sabbatical leaves from the committee.
Hamp Sherard, Chair
