Remarks by the Dean
Dr. Sommer congratulated Dr. McMacken on receiving a grant for laboratory renovations from the National Science Foundation. The Advisory Board discussed current NIH and AID funding situations and future scenarios under a variety of budgetary constraints. The School is now finalizing its 1995-96 budget and is anticipated to have an overall healthy budget for the next 5 years. New activities with a number of foundations were enumerated.
Report of the Faculty Senate
There were no items to report.
1. Changes to MPH PPM regarding grading Dr. Armenian reviewed proposed changes in the MPH PPM to make them consistent with recent changes in other PPMs regarding grading and other administrative changes in the MPH program. The changes were approved by a vote of the Advisory Board.
2. Space for doctoral students There was a general discussion about the need for student space in the School, particularly for doctoral students. Members of the Advisory Board considered whether students should be grouped in one area or should be adjacent to their advisors and/or laboratories, and whether the space should be allocated and maintained centrally or by departments. These and other practical issues will be taken into consideration as planning for space in the new building addition begin over the next few months. Dean Sommer thanked member of the Advisory Board for their thoughts and will come back to them as the space planning begins.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 4:35 p.m.
