CAB: Resolution Regarding development of UHWO
Motion from CAB
Discussion followed related to VPAPP's response and need to request information from BOR on presentation at their last meeting related to need for UHWO. Dr. Tiles was instructed to add a sentence to #3 to requesting the information presented at the BOR meeting.
The committee believes the Senate should not apportion RTRF
The library situation was clarified
The committee is discussing issues related to proprietary and classified research
Considering current mode of operation (.Dean vs Faculty directed) Dr. Tiles believes it should not be called a Senate. Dr Tiles discussed shared governance with the Manoa Executive Team. He believes this relationship is trivialized.
Discussed with Ed Yuen. Now stalled at the system level…we will have to wait till this is resolved. It will not be available this year.
Legal opinion: current haka is dissimilar from the copywriten form.
BOR will not delay even though we requested a delay. Information was provided regarding our concern last year about student technology fees. Chancellor indicated these funds were included in the biennium budget
We have been denied participation at the MLT. We suggested there be a conference on shared governance. This is now not moving forward. He has concern related to the commitment of the administration related to shared governance.
Dr. Tiles reported that he attended a meeting where the budget was described as :dead on arrival”. The Chair of the House Education Committee is not sympathetic to Manoa's needs. The DRAFT systems response was distributed to the Senate and is attached. This document was presented to the community partnership. The President asked the community leaders to assist in achieving the agenda. Dr. Tiles believes the message that the Manoa message is not clearly compatible with the system agenda and has communicated this to the Chancellor.
New First Year Initiative
Dr. Cambra needs to meet with the Senate to discuss this proposal.
Anything through 2007 will be called a centennial event Web site is up and functional with all events listed. No funding is available for this event.
Motion to Adjourn
