B. Dean’s Announcements

  1. Dean Rao expressed grateful thanks to the 2001/2002 LAC committee and Faculty Senate for recommending to the University administration to increase library acquisitions budget at least to off set the inflation and enable the library to maintain its current acquisitions level. As President Patton said “it is an honor to serve at an institution, where faculty place library needs above their salaries.” We are also grateful to Dean George Wilson for allocating $65,000 on a one-time basis from his college salary savings to the library. Through this action Dean Wilson placed University needs above college needs. Dean Wilson’s generosity made it possible for us to maintain our serial subscriptions for another year without any forced cancellations.

Moved to adjourn by Dr. Brown, seconded by Dr. Schwepker; was approved. Meeting adjourned.
