Manoa Faculty Senate Executive Committee Minutes of November 15, 2004

VC Smatresk arrived at 2:15 p.m.; Dator, Uchida and Ramsey were present from 2:00 p.m. and Bley-Vroman came at 3:05 p.m. The SEC discussed the flood, UARC, and reorganizations with VC Smatresk. Smatresk was apprised of several Senate resolutions that would come forward at the Senate meeting on November 17, regarding flood recovery coordination, classified research and related issues. After the discussion with VC Smatresk, Ramsey convened the regular meeting of the SEC.

  1. The minutes for November 8 were approved with revision.
  2. By telephone, Ramsey consulted with Professor Vassilis Syrmos about the Board of Regents agenda item 8 for Thursday, November 18: "Establishment of the Applied Research Laboratory -- University of Hawaii at Manoa". Professor Syrmos then sent to the SEC the most recent (October 15) draft of the proposal and the motion before the Board of Regents.
  3. After reviewing the exact motion before the Board or Regents, the SEC then drafted a resolution for the Wednesday Senate meeting, urging the Board of Regents to make any permanent approval of a UARC (now called ARL-UHM) contingent upon the approval of the Manoa Faculty Senate.
  4. The SEC reviewed Tom Schroeder's proposed testimony about system reorganization, which the SEC requested that Tom Schroeder prepare for presentation to the Board of Regents on behalf of the SEC on November 18-19.
  5. Most liaison reports were deferred, except the report from CAB about the system reorganization. The SEC decided to forward the report to both the Manoa Faculty Senate and the Board of Regents, having found it a useful amplification of the issues that were raised in Tom Schroeder's prepared statement.
  6. The SEC revised the agenda for the Wednesday Senate meeting to accommodate the SEC resolution, a COR resolution regarding flood recovery coordination, and CPM resolution regarding classified research.
  7. The meeting adjourned about 6:00 p.m.
