V. Faculty Welfare and Development Committee
Committee Work-in-Progress (Nominees to Standing Committees)
In selecting nominees, FWDC used information generated from committee preferences, as well as taking into consideration who has not been on committees and who would be good on a particular committee. Within the ILS Intensive Subcommittees, FWDC staggered the terms as it felt was most logical for continuity. This was necessary to do because the Senate changed the terms to four years and added two Intensive Subcommittees (Topical and Colloquium).
Dr. Konz noted that after next academic year one-half of the members of ILS-Writing will roll off. He suggested appointing one person for another year and one person for another two years, so that two members will roll off each year. Dr. Pearson said FWDC considered this and decided it would be best to wait until next spring and see who was interested in serving an additional year as opposed to staggering terms that were already established. FWDC will take this into consideration and will work with ILS-Writing. Dr. Konz asked if FWDC’s intent was to have one person appointed for one year at that point. Dr. Pearson said yes, or reappointed for an additional year, or something similar.
The Faculty Senate approved the following FWDC nominations to Standing Committees:

IDC 1 Revised: UNCA Mission Statement
Ms. Nelms said IDC 1 (revised) has gone before the UPC, the Student Government Association, and the Chancellor’s Staff Advisory Council.
Dr. Dohse said the Senate has a good rule that requires documents to have first and second readings. This gives Senators time to peruse and reflect on proposals. The Senate will hold a Special meeting on May 7, 2009, with one item on the agenda: Second reading and discussion on IDC 1. Senators who can not attend the meeting are asked to send comments.
VII. Committee Assignment Preferences
Dr. Dohse asked Senators to submit their committee preferences.
The Executive Committee will convene at the close of this meeting to set committee assignments.
Dr. Dohse adjourned the meeting at 4:50 pm.
