F. Higher Education Advocacy Coalition: In a meeting with the Faculty Chairs from the Idaho Higher Education Institutions, ISU presented a proposal for a Higher Education Advocacy group. The goal would be to develop strategies and ideas to promote Higher Education within the state. If LCSC would like to support this group, the LCSC faculty will need to decide to support the planning of an organization of this type. There will probably be a financial obligation, for travel for example. In response to a question from the floor, Kathie reported that initially it would likely be the Faculty Chair who would represent the LCSC faculty at these planning meetings, but ultimately it could be a member of the faculty who would represent LCSC interests. Business leaders of Idaho as well as lobbyists would also be part of this advocacy group.
Motion: Move to explore the advocacy group concept. Motion approved.
G. Approval of Graduation List: Move to approve the graduation list as presented. Motion approved.
