President Cabinet Summary
- Discussion was held regarding the agenda for today’s the Gustavus Acts Steering Committee meeting, including reviewing an implementation planning template and decision-making criteria.
- Discussion was held regarding conducting an all-employee survey in March 2017.
- The Cabinet reviewed a proposal brought by Vice President for Student Life JoNes VanHecke for a new Campus Safety organizational structure, which will include Director of Campus Safety Carol Brewer, two assistant directors of Campus Safety, administrative assistant, seven officers, and a number of on-call officers and student employees. This new structure will include a reduction of one FTE in Campus Safety. The Campus Safety position reduction will move to an FTE addition in the Finance Office as some of the responsibilities formerly associated with the most recent Assistant Director of Campus Safety position are being assigned to the promoted Director of Risk Management, who will report to the Vice President for Finance and Treasurer.
- Members approved hiring an interim Director of Fine Arts (replacement position) from mid-February through June 1, 2017 or until a permanent Director is hired.
- Members approved the hiring of four part-time replacement positions in athletics (assistant men’s and women’s track and field coach; assistant softball coach; two assistant men’s tennis coaches).
