Meeting 9: Summary

    The draft Faculty/Staff survey was discussed and CCT members agreed to pilot it noting the length of time to complete it. CCT members revised the definitions of equity, diversity, and social justice after receiving input from the ISAT and March 1 Goal 2 Strategic Planning discussion. An update related to the hockey chants was provided followed by discussion. Communication, accountability, development of effective strategies to educate and also to respond to offensive behavior must be strengthened. CCT expressed the need to learn more about the student conduct code. The VC Advancement UCT is working on action items related to Athletics, but needs more participation by Athletics in its UCT. Rudy reported on the SFA UCT program on the Artist’s Studio (March 29). Due to lack of time, Jennifer was not able to report on LSBE UCT activities, but will send a report out by email. Members were reminded that end of year progress reports are due May 12.
