for all of these goals are on Planning Council’s website, except 3.1.
- Prior prioritization (found on right side of PC’s webpage) includes goals 1.1, 2.1, 3.1, and 3.3 for the last two years.
- Prioritization the year before includes goals 1.3, 2.2, 2.4 from the prior plan’s map, plus 1.2 and 3.3.
- Review of metrics can be found on the right-hand side of Planning Council’s webpage.
- We will send out the environmental scan/external factors document that the Council contributed to in the Fall.
- Open discussion:
- Tracy Dougher: The consensus at the College of Agriculture was that 3.1 is still a big priority for them and feeds into 1.1. Otherwise, 1.1 and 1.3 also came up. A couple of dept. heads feel they fell behind on 2.1 this last year.
- Bradford Watson: Faculty senators prioritized 1.1, then 3.1 and 3.3. The feel we are losing ground on faculty salary. 1.1 and 3.1 are linked as Tracy said.
- Susan Raph asked about the Council’s decision process. If they have three votes, they
would put all three votes towards 3.3. If they have to choose the top three, they
would choose 3.3, 3.1 and 1.1.
- Chris Fastnow said decision rule is up to the Council – consensus, voting methods, etc.
- David Eitle: CLS (about 1/3rd of units) reporting prioritized 2.1, followed by 3.1 and 1.1 in popularity.
- From engineering leadership group per Rob Maher: 1.1 and 3.3 were mentioned by all. 2.1 also had majority support.
- Cati Carmody: Initial support from student senators has been mostly 1.3 and 3.3, and she has heard support for 1.1 as well. This is a pretty small response group still (5-10), so she will keep asking.
- Chelsey Wilson: Jabs Leadership chose 1.1, 1.3 and 2.1.
- Logan Schutz: Honors leadership pointed at 1.1, 3.3 and 3.1.
- Katie Ivester: “Gallatin College’s priority is 1.1!!!”
- Previously prioritized goals include: 1.1, 1.3, 2.1, 2.4, 3.1, and 3.3. The metrics for all of these goals are on Planning Council’s website, except 3.1.
