The meeting was called to order at 2:00 p.m.Guests: Jackie Hank and Gretchen Viney, Academic Staff Athletic Board Representatives
ASEC discussed with Jackie and Gretchen the process that was followed in the selection of the head football coach after the former coach unexpectedly resigned. Gretchen provided ASEC with excerpts from Faculty Documents 2191 and 2114A, both of which concern the search-and-screen process for head coaches and senior departmental officials. The athletic board representatives indicated that the co-chairs of the personnel committee, the football liaison, and the chair of the board were involved in the process, which was consistent with the faculty policy.Guest: Mark Covaleski, Athletic Board Chair
Mark provided ASEC with a copy of the search-and-screen policy that the athletic board followed in the search and confirmed adherence to the policy in the hiring of Coach Chryst. The full board will ratify the choice at the next meeting on the 23rd. There was discussion about the selection process of sub-committee members not being codified in the policy, and ASEC expressed a desire to see it codified and that there be academic staff/shared governance representation in the process to ensure more robust diversity.
ASEC plans to review Faculty Document 2191 in full and will determine further recommendations.
Meeting adjourned at 2:56 p.m.Minutes submitted by Jake Smith, Deputy Secretary of the Academic Staff
