The meeting was called to order at 12:09 pm by Chair M. Jartett. Minutes of the last meeting (September) were approved unanimously.

Administration:

D. Gogniat: The new building is at the last hurdle. Even the lowest bid was over budget, but the legislature has re-allocated money for the project. It will go out again for bid in November.

We were in the black last year, but we need to cut the budget to stay in the black.

The receptionist will not have the key to the faculty mailboxes, so be sure to bring your key. Carol Wagner will only open it for you in an emergency.

J. McCormick: There will be a change in the way travel funds are allocated. Tenured faculty will receive 90% up to $1,620. Untenured tenure-line faculty will continue to receive $1,800. This is a cost containment issue. It is not know at this time what will be done for fixed term faculty.

Student Government:

B. Ward: Students don't like faculty parking in the ISTC lot.

We will have a float in the York Halloween parade. We invited children to dress in PSU attired.

We just finished the budget allocation for 14 active clubs/organizations.

Club Amnesia will meet Friday October 25 from 8 pm - 1 am.

SGA meetings are Mondays from 12 - 1 pm.

R. Himmer: The softball lot is city, not campus, property. There's been a tacit agreement between students/faculty/staff regarding the ISTC lot. We pretty much have open parking already since students park wherever they want and don't get ticketed.

B. Ward: We are evaluating alternatives for security cameras and will be purchasing some.

Senate:

M. Casteel: TIAA-CREF has been outperforming benchmark standards.

M. Jarrett (on behalf of D. Sarafian): There will be a CWC meeting October 25-26.

Faculty Affairs:

G. Collison: The first faculty colloquium will be held next Tuesday. C. Gaston will show his voting system.

Diversity:

D. Russell: We just finished Hispanic Heritage month. We are thinking of ideas for Black History Month (February) and Unity Day (in April).

CEO Search Committee:

M. Jarrett: Candidates will be visiting in the next couple weeks. We reviewed about 80 (mostly new) CVs.

Futures:

A plenary discussion was conducted and the campus by consensus seemed to support the Future Committee's decision to put a Continuing Education link on the campus web site.

Campus P&T Statement:

M. Jarrett: (handout) This statement will change that language of the statement so it is consistent with university policy. Some parts of the document will be amended to include criteria for faculty whose tenure is not in the CWC.

F. Haag made the motion to accept the statement, and M. Casteel seconded it. The motion was carried by majority rule.

Transition Programs:

J. Leece: presented a proposal for an ESL program (handout).

R. Himmer: This could be a good program to be supported by the CWC as a whole, not just the campus.

J. Leece: There are some students who have come to PSU York because we have ESL classes. At the Delaware campus, they've had to hire more teachers because classes have been so popular. There are 17 students enrolled in the ESL 4 class. We had 7 in the course this summer, and 14 the summer before.

D. Dzubak: Will ESL classes be required? If they have to repeat one class, will they have to go another semester?

J. Leece: We need to be flexible. It would be language intensive up front, but flexible. HACC's program is separate from it's academic program, but we want to work with students within the academic program.

A majority voted for this proposal. It will now go forward to the Strategic Planning Committee.

Meeting was adjourned at 1:17 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Sherry Robinson
