We also discussed the Diversity Plan and what is being done across campus to implement. Jennifer is going to form a dashboard that units can use to show what they are doing.  One of the goals of our retreat this summer, is to decide on parts of the diversity plan.  This will be followed up with a session for unit chairs of diversity committees to work on their plans so they will have something concrete.  Kaye Holman volunteered to help with this.

4. Subcommittee Reports

Operating Guidelines Subcommittee: Membership is a big question this committee faces. Also, we need to decide how long terms are for members. There are more meetings scheduled.
