Changes to IPC Planning Cycle: Brodnick mentioned that there was an evaluation of the IPC process and that a sub-committee was formed to improve the effectiveness of IPC. He announced that July 1st is the new target date for the planning and budget letter to go out and that there will be a launch of a new strategic planning process, which will last about 12-14 months and at the end there will be a new set of strategies. Lastly, the IPC is going to generate a rubric for evaluation of proposals.

Lackey asked Brodnick to rebuild the schedule to have the meetings on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month and from 2:00-3:30pm. Brodnick said he would resend then revised schedule to get another round of considerations before finalizing it.

ISPC Membership and Terms: The committee reviewed the membership terms document, some of which are appointed annually by the President and others are elected or appointed to a 3-year term. The committee agreed to change the membership to read, "Two faculty at large."

Finalize ISPC Policy Statement: The committee reviewed the responsibility statements that were revised to be shorter and more precise. These statements look at developing strategies, recommending initiatives and priorities, and the policies. Johnson suggested adding "service" to the third responsibility, so it would read, "To recommend institutional polices on information security, service, and technology." The committee agreed to have the revised document taken to Academic Council this fall.
