Mānoa Faculty Senate Committee on Athletics Minutes of November 17, 2009
Faculty Senate Committee on Athletics
Attendees: Rosanne Harrigan, Bob Cooney, Halina Zaleski, Peter Nicholson
1. Standards We support the catalogue definition of “good academic standing” A minimum GPA of 2.0 or better. We would like this motion to be forwarded to CAP for their action as well as MFS Exec Committee.
Could the other members of the committee please respond regarding their support for this position ASAP via email to firstname.lastname@example.org?
2. Finance Mr. Donovan will attend a special meeting of the committee Dec 16th at 12:00 noon to 1 PM in Hawaii Hall 208. The CoA meeting the week before will be canceled. Mr. Donovan will discuss the financial status of the Athletics Department.
3. Athletics Advisory Board We have asked for the MFS to advise us on our suggestion that a resolution be drafted to terminate the AAB. The AAB has existed for more than 30 years and is not a MFS Committee. We believe there is duplication of effort and that the MFS should be responsive in governance related to athletics. Members of the committee are invited to share talking points related to this issue that will be discussed tomorrow.
4. FAR Report re academic standing of athletes will be available for the January meeting.
