Spring ASC Election Results

  • We welcome the following staff members to the council as they begin their 3-year terms:  Richard Sims, Jenna O'Brien, Tracy Noyes, and Cheryl Brye.  We thank Cynthia Carlson and Rick Stewart for their interest in serving.   With gratitude, we wish Scott Stine, Joshua Rybaski, Aaron Koepke, and Patrick Barlow well as they end their terms.

Staff Excellence Award

  • The Professional Development Committee is now evaluating the submissions for the staff excellence award.  The final award winner will be determined and then announced at the beginning of next fall term.  Thanks to all who submitted nominations and the nominees who submitted additional materials for review.

Salary Equity Draft Planning for 2015

  • Based on strong enrollment and other positive factors,  it is believed that we may be able to find support for a base salary equity adjustment of approximately 1% for Academic Staff  with salary below 100% of the CUPA median that would take effect July 1st, 2014.  The plan, option #2, has been endorsed by the Joint Planning and Budget Committee.  We now await final steps to be taken by the administration.  The ASC has drafted a statement of support.  See the ASC statement on these plans

Past Minutes and Agendas:

  • Past ASC meeting minutes and agendas from approximately 2010 to 2013 are being converted into PDF files and will be found on the link off the main ASC webpage.   Meeting agendas for the current year will be posted the University Meeting Calendar found at http://www.uwlax.edu/meetings/  The ASC is currently looking to place our minutes from the last three years on the webpage but will need to convert them to a searchable PDF format.  Please understand this will take some effort and time.  If you are in need of any approved minutes in the interim, please contact us.
