  1. Danny made a motion to accept the minutes from the previous meeting. Peter seconded and the vote was unanimous to accept the minutes.

  2. Jeff presented the proposed budget. We have a motion to post the proposed budget on the website and discuss the budget at its own meeting and not at the ratification meeting: it passed unanimously. A motion was made to approve the budget, it was seconded and the vote was unanimous to accept the proposed budget.

  3. We discussed donating money to the fund to support the students affected by the fire at 104 Hemenway St. We will investigate further and come back next week to discuss.

  4. On-line teaching as an option for students saving money on tuition was discussed. The administration is discussing putting some courses on-line to offset tuition on-campus. This has many ramifications for our faculty.
