University Committees—We requested some changes to some committees. President Ramaley would like to make changes to how some committees are made up so look for changes. Alcohol Policy—A fresh look at the alcohol policy will be looked at. Alcohol was allowed in the 3rd floor of the Press Box and it will be studied to see if it will be allowed on other areas of campus. Academic Deadline Calendar—Subject to prior approval by IFO and will be up on the web once it is approved. Academic Program Review—A draft document was handed out and they will be looking for 2-3 volunteers to help revise outdated language and learning outcomes for accreditation. ROTC from UW-L has requested to hold classes on our campus. Our response is “No” for this fall. Classes are currently held at the Amory Building. Dr. Ramaley will be looking faculty and other groups on campus to develop ideas for things that could be used as class projects (i.e., snow removal on campus).
