Research and Grants Committee

Meeting Minutes


21 SEPT 04


The research and grants committee was convened for the first time during the 2004-2005 school year by Kris Rolfhus on the 21st of September, 2004 at 5:30 p.m. Committee members introduced themselves and Dr. Rolfhus laid out the committee’s charge for the year.


The committee decided on six meeting times for the fall semester to discuss grant proposals and listen to faculty presentations. The dates are as follows:

Tuesday, 2 November at 6:00 p.m., Tuesday, 9 November at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, 10 November at 6:00 p.m., Thursday 11 November at 6:00 p.m., Tuesday 16 November at 6:00 p.m. and Tuesday 23 November at 6:00 p.m.


The committee discussed possible rooms for meetings.


The committee also discussed the importance of having additional committee members. The members agreed that the unique charge of this committee, to review grants from diverse disciplines with potentially complicated theses would be better served by a wider pool of faculty members. Dr. Rolfhus will attempt to recruit the three extra members of the committee.
