We've received a memo from the Search Committee for Dean of the College which provides a schedule of candidate visits. If possible we should
actively involve ourselves in the process and hopefully not only help determine which might be more appreciative of the Department but also to let whomever might be selected know that the Anthropology/Ethnic Studies Department is concerned with the directions the College will pursue in the future.
In a report from the Graduate Dean's Office there was a total of 262 students admitted to graduate programs throughout the University for the
Spring Semester. 109 of these were in the several divisions of the College of Education. In our College, seven was the high number for a department (History) and one was the low (Communications). We have two. Let us pray that Communications do not try any harder.
On Graduate College Exploration Day, January 8, 1990, seven (7) prospective students inquired of our Graduate Program. Most were teachers in the local
school district. One, James Evans, seemed really serious. Keep an eye out for him.
This year's allocation for out-of-state travel for the Department is $212.74. I would guess those of us who have or will attend conferences and present
papers for the year will know for certain by mid-March. Based on the numbers, we will know how to divvy up the treasure trove.
5S The deadline for the Rocchio Scholarship applications came on February 23. After a determination of the recipient is made, let's encourage that person to actually attend the Honors Convocation.
I know its early but we should start thinking about Spring '91 schedule. It will come due in June but why wait. It might be a good idea to also
see if we wish to initiate a practice of preparing schedules for the entire year once per year and not have to go through the ordeal twice per year.
Some years ago we maintained a ledger in the office for faculty to list an on-going record of their yearly accomplishments. I will re-institute
that practice. Such a record is particularly useful in ensuring that we do no omit anything in preparing merit proposals and it would be especially helpful to the Chair in preparing yearly evaluations for those of us nto putting forward merit proposals. Additionaly, the preparation of yearly evaluations would not have to be put on hold until just weeks before they are due and more contemplation may be given each.
Seems that we should start thinking about Graduate Assistants for next year.
The next Department meeting will be on March 7 at 12:30. Agenda items will be (1) Nominations for Chair and (2) The Core Class. I think some
good discussion should take place concerning item one and, because I think my presence might inhibit that, I will ask Claude to chair that meeting.
0..There was something else but I forgot what it is.
