The SEC discussed the status of a graduate certificate in biomedical engineering proposal, to follow up with Prof. Bruce Liebert (mechanical engineering) who asked Chair Tiles about it. He had permission to plan, and submitted his proposal to Peter Garrod. In order to act on this matter in any way, SEC would need a request from VCAA Smatresk. Tiles will follow up.
Currently there is no follow up on the Manoa-KCC agreement. The SEC is awaiting further information to reconcile the different versions that are circulating. Chair Tiles and Chin agreed to bring this matter up with Chancellor Konan, in person at their next meeting and/or by note.
The SEC heard from CSA liaison M. Staff that there will be a formal presentation to Smatresk of the CAPP/CSA Joint Report on Summer Session. Staff will send the newly edited report by email, and Tiles will transmit a hard copy. Chair Tiles will include this matter in the Chairís report to the Senate on 11/15. The SEC discussed the remaining items for the agenda of the 11/15 meeting.
It was reported that Louise Kubo is no longer in Academic Affairs. She left for a position in Urban & Regional Planning. Beverly McCreary is currently a Program Officer in Academic Affairs, and her former position, Gender Equity Counselor, is vacant. It was also rumored that Peggy Hong may be asked to handle the responsibilities designated for the interim Assistant Vice Chancellor position that Louise Kubo left.
The SEC adjourned at 4:10 p.m.
