Bley-Vroman presided, with SEC members Kent, Lampe, Staff, Tiles and Ramsey present.
Minutes were approved subject to email corrections.
Bley-Vroman reported that he will continue as the CFS liaison and that Ramsey is the CAB liaison. He also reported that CFS recommends a special election to replace Barry Raleigh on the SEC. He discussed the solicitation from the faculty of nominations for the Chancellor's Search Committee; the President's upcoming UARC meeting on January 21; and administrative overlap between Manoa and the system.
Bley-Vroman and Lampe will engage Smatresk about the rationale for an Evaluations Task Force.
The SEC extended the deadline for faculty nominations to the Chancellor's Search Committee to 4:30 p.m. this Friday, January 13. The SEC will meet at 3 p.m. on Monday, MLK Day, to act upon the nominations.
The SEC set an agenda for the January Senate meeting. The Chair will report about the Chancellor's search, a special election and perhaps administrative overlap between Manoa and the system. CAB will bring 3 resolutions about housing, management of cash balances, and retirees. Tentatively, CPM might have a resolution about no-green-card ambiguously-tenure-track faculty.
The SEC agreed with the recommendation of CFS that Barry Raleigh's vacancy should be filled by a special election. Bley-Vroman will inquire about the mechanics of such an election and whether we can do it electronically. It appears that it will be a two-stage process: nominations and then a vote about a short list.
Ramsey (as CAB liaison) was asked to research the status of a "budgeting task force" about "performance metrics" for spending "tuition revenue".
