No report.

E. Organization & Operations
The corrections to the AY2003-2004 allocation of Senate seats will be announced at today’s Faculty Senate meeting. The Committee will begin the complex task of amending the allocation section of the Charter and working with IRR to update
the faculty database in the fall.
