2005-2006 Performance Evaluations

Vice President self-evaluations are to be submitted to President Nelson prior to the June 30 deadline.  All employee evaluations and review of all job descriptions are to be completed and submitted to Human Resources by June 30 as well.

Summer Staffing

President Nelson asked the vice presidents to submit their plans for summer vacation to Ms. Brown in order to be certain that an officer is on campus at all times over the summer months.

Employment Process

The University will look into whether there are additional available resources, which might shorten the length of time required by Human Resources to perform background checks on prospective employees.  It was suggested that the Director of Public Safety might know of available services, which might assist in this area.
