a. The SGA and GSA have asked the Senate to support their resolutions having to do with requiring certain athletic funds be transferred to academic purposes. David Lee reported that President Johnson did not think it was a good idea to lock the Athletic Department in permanently to a certain percentage of whatever budget (or surplus) there will be that will be transferred. Mayhew spoke for a fixed percentage, but to keep that percentage low. Quinn said he had reservations about both of the students' resolution and some about Mayhew's resolution. After a long discussion of the Athletic Department and the University, Reed said he would ask the Senate's Athletic Committee to write our own resolution. Phillips suggested that the students' resolution not be sidestepped, but should be discussed in the Senate. Reed asked for a straw vote on bringing issue before the Senate for discussion (passed 9-14). It will be discussed at the next Senate meeting. Lee then talked about the "poor fit" between an opulent and well- run Athletic Department running a "semi-professional sports program" and the rest of the University.6. Bylaws Committee
b. Reed said there may well be a resolution coming to the Senate floor protesting restrictions on "R' accounts.
Committee on Assessment Alternatives3. Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor searches. G. Reed reported that President Joe Johnson has announced the Chancellor Search Committee membership. The committee's first meeting will be February 10. Chancellor Quinn reported that the Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs search has identified two top candidates who will meet with the Chancellor-designate when that person is identified. The search for a Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance is not as far along, but will proceed, in hopes that the Chancellor-designate can make a prompt decision.
Legislative Committee will present a redrafted version of the resolution passed last year on tax and education reform.
