October 9, 2003 –

 

It’s a pleasure for me to have this opportunity to discuss a couple of issues that have significant impact on all of us at CSI.  Mike Mason is meeting this week with members of the Faculty Senate and Pace to begin serious consideration of our heath insurance benefits and whether or not we should seek an alternate insurance carrier. This decision has long-term ramifications, so this committee has a vital responsibility.
 
 

We have also been informed by the Governor that funding for higher education will be static this coming year, but we are still hoping to provide a general salary increase if at all possible.  This is our #1 priority.
 
 

Recently in a discussion with one of my peers, he indicated that they had formed a “fun” committee on his campus and each month they participate in some campus-wide activity where the main object is just to have a great time and encourage faculty, staff, and students get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere. It might be something for us to investigate during these times of limited revenues and ever increasing individual responsibilities.
