Major Accomplishments

The committee sent out requests for nominations for FY 17 and received only one that was outside the appropriate classification of employment. Other nominations were sought after the deadline. Upon receipt of the names of nominees the committee felt it was inappropriate to select one from the list as all were from one college obviously representing the effort of one committee member's request for names.

The committee agreed to make extraordinary effort to solicit nominations from the university community through the Center for Learning and Professional Development. Additionally, the committee wrote to Provost Howard informing him that all committee members, including the chair, terms had expired and the remaining two members sought his permission to be reappointed for one year to give him time to re-staff the committee. That request went unanswered.

A duplicate of the request made in FY 17 was made in FY 18 again going unanswered until approximately, June 15 when Provost Howard informed the chair that he would be reappointing members to the committee. In August 2018 the former chair heard from the Chancellor's office requesting the chair accept another term to serve a new term beginning immediately. The contacted former member agreed to accept the nomination to serve on the committee. Three additional members need to be appointed to the committee so it may function in FY 2019.

The former chair contacted the family of Ralph B. Crouch in June 2018 to let them know that the committee is working to improve responses to the solicitations for nominations. The family acknowledges the effort to receive quality nominees.
