Cheryl will send out a signup sheet for minute takers after Vickie schedules the winter term committee meetings.

The committee agreed that this is an excellent suggestion and a small group of committee members, consisting of Kathleen Stanley, Cara Walters and Brett Burkhardt, will begin working on the survey. The committee suggests streamlining and shortening the survey. Cheryl will send out results of 2013 survey:
Professor of Teaching – Update
Cheryl informed the committee that the committee was to stop working on the Professor of Teaching proposal until the Executive Committee had a chance to discuss the proposal of a new rank in more detail at a future meeting.
