Area Directors Meeting Notes – March 22, 2012

Present:  Mike Roy, Carol Peddie, Terry Simpkins, Chris Norris and Doreen Bernier

Also visiting:  Space Team members Hans Raum, Joseph Watson, Todd Sturtevant and Peggy Fischel

The Space Team joined the ADs to discuss plans for the possible use of 118 South Main Street for LIS staff offices.  The Space Team will need to take in consideration office space for new hires for both phase 1 and 2 of the LIS staffing plan, and also plan for the return of the upper level offices for the faculty use.  A tour of the facility will be arranged for the Space Team to see if it could fill our space needs. As mentioned in last week’s AD notes, the lower level of the building is currently available and could house 8-9 staff members.  (To be clear, the decision about whether or not we can use the space is a decision that the campus space committee will make.)

Who handles assessments?   Since Carol has taken on the directorship of Enterprise Applications, who will handle assessments?  Terry will take on all surveys, except for Educause, which Carol will continue to handle.
