GPA Policy

Each campus is different because of Distance Education.  This difference is causing problems for students.   Deans of Instruction got together six months ago to formulate a new policy (3.6 gpa, 6 credits or more, no N’s, F’s, I’s).   The policy was sent out to unit chairs for review.   There are problems with the policy; we need to revisit it.   A decision will be made shortly.  Suzette will send out the policy again.


Contract Renewal Workshop 

Two contract renewal workshops for tenured track probationary people have been scheduled for October 3.  The sessions will be taped for anyone interested in seeing them. 


Documents are due internally on November 3rd.

It was agreed as a system that people must be notified by November 15 if a decision is made that they will not be renewed.  They will have one semester and another year before they are terminated. 


For temporary, non-tenured faculty, the tentative scheduled deadline is October 31st. 


Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan team leaders meeting will be held at 11:00 a.m., October 3, 2003.



The final draft for ABIT was forwarded to Lily Owyang.   Dan Kruse, David Grooms, Suzette Robinson, and BK Griesemer will be looking at the document and then it will be sent forward.  We will need approval from both the Jr. and Sr. Commissions. 


Plans are for three courses to be offered next Fall with differentiated tuitions.   We will be looking at the West Oahu model.
