President's Cabinet Summary

The President’s Cabinet met on Nov. 3 and discussed the following items:

  • The spread of influenza-like illness (ILI) continues to slow on campus. The past week brought few new cases to Gustavus, possibly mirroring a recent decline in the local St. Peter community.
  • Vice President for Finance Ken Westphal reported that the 2009-2010 budget is being closely tracked and asked the other vice presidents to keep him informed should any unanticipated budget issues arise.
  • Two replacement positions were approved—Finance Office cashier and a custodian.
  • Public accounting majors are required to take 37.5 course credits for certification purposes instead of the 34 required course credits for graduation. Therefore, students may need to enroll for a ninth semester to graduate. Where applicable, students will be eligible to request financial aid for the additional semester through the usual process.
  • Vice President for Marketing and Communication Gwen Freed reported that the Nobel Conference promotion request for proposals, reviewed and approved by the Cabinet and Nobel Conference Director Chuck Niederriter, will be issued to several firms this week.
  • A request for a new staff position was presented and discussed. This year, as usual, all requests for new positions will be discussed by the Budget Committee before approval by the Cabinet.
  • A request for an administrative leave was discussed and approved per the College’s current policy.
