Executive Cabinet Actions

The Executive Cabinet took action on several requests this morning. They will be communicated through official channels, but I thought I would share a few with you:

  • Approved recommendation of the Space Utilization and Allocation Committee to move Parking Management to the old iTech Help Desk area in McLemore Hall. This will free up a 32-seat classroom and two offices.
  • Approved recommendation of the Commencement Executive Committee to include a student processional in the fall commencement agenda. This follows positive feedback from the spring 2010 commencement during which students were allowed to be part of the processional for the first time in many years.
  • Approved a Faculty Senate request to provide Career Services support for employees who are terminated as a result of the FY12 budget reductions.
  • Executive Cabinet extended tuition reductions for up to three years for the children of employees who are terminated as a result of the FY12 budget reductions. Students must be currently enrolled.
