Approval of the Minutes - Dr. Queener
Minutes from the October 5, 2005 Meeting Approved.
IU Dean’s Report – Dr. Queener
There has been a spotlight on all universities. The spotlight is looking at the quality indicators of programs; those indicators are retention rates, quality of faculty, and the quality of students. We have to be extremely careful on this campus to be very clear of what is expected of all. Applications for admissions where the GPA does not meet the standard set by this university, cannot be accepted as a regular admission.
Purdue Dean’s Report – Dr. Story
We’ve had several opportunities to talk with different groups to improve/strengthen our efforts of collegiality across all campuses. We’re continuing to work on the quality of relationships and communication.
Graduate Office Report – Mr. Koerner
Students are currently registering for Spring, but if the Fee Remissions aren’t received the students will not be paid. If you have any Spring admissions the fee remissions should be in sooner than later.
Fellowship Subcommittee Report - Mr. Koerner
We’ve met and the university fellowship isn’t due until February. Please look over the instructions, because they have changed. The instructions will be sent out to Deans and Chairs in a few weeks.
