    Summary

    CCT representatives from the Commission on Women and the Multicultural Student Leaders Council reported on the activities of their Unit Change Teams. In preparation for the April 23 meeting with Mitch Hammer, the CCT members developed questions related to UCT challenges. The LSBE UCT raised the issue of hateful comments on the end-of semester Student Evaluation forms. CCT members discussed options for action to bring this to the attention of the Leadership Team with recommendations for stopping this behavior. A committee on campus climate assessment (Goal 2, Action 5) presented recommendations for assessing the campus climate for discussion. There was strong consensus that a full time administrator with responsibilities for equity, diversity and campus climate be hired. Kathy Obear will present a second Train the Facilitators Program on June 25-27 for UMD staff and faculty with training/ orientation responsibilities.
