* Update on the survey: A second round of email invitations has gone out to
7400+ students and 360+ faculty. A variety of endeavors to promote
participation, especially among students, has been taken. A guest column was
submitted to the Oswegonian to challenge students to participate. A graphic
arts student is going to create a full-page "ad" promoting the survey
which Bozak will pay to have placed in next week's Oswegonian. We will keep the
survey open until October 20, one additional week.

* Cathy Santos took Jean Chambers' letter of notification to a student and
crafted two template letters, a draft guide to a conversation between a faculty
member and a student and a FERPA waiver. These were discussed - quite a good
start. They will be distributed electronically and we'll email
suggestions/comments/edits/etc. to Cathy prior to the next meeting where we can
finalize a set of materials to place on the website.
Next meeting is October 18, 8am, 711 Culkin.
