SUBJECT:    October 25, 2005 Meeting

Dear Colleagues:

Our first meeting of the 2005-06 academic year is scheduled for Tuesday, October 25 at 3:30 p.m., in Garren Auditorium, Room 1105 in the Basic Science Building. The Notice of Meeting (agenda) and all pertinent documents may be found on the Senate's Web page at:


On this occasion, our first order of business will be to elect two from among the Assembly membership to serve as representatives to the Senate Council. The Senate Council oversees the functioning of the Division, determines the agenda for meetings of the Representative Assembly, and is empowered to take action for the Assembly in emergencies. In making a nomination from the floor, please make sure in advance that the person is willing to serve. For the list of this year's Assembly members, click on:


The Assembly will again take up the issue of Student-Athlete Grants-in-Aid. This proposal, put forward by the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Joseph Watson, raises issues about which the Assembly has previously held strong opinions; a lively and lengthy discussion was held at the May 24, 2005 meeting. Ultimately, the Assembly decided to continue discussion at its first meeting of this academic year.

For help in reaching the Web site or to obtain a paper copy of the Notice of Meeting, please contact the Academic Senate Office at 858-534-3640. If at all times you prefer to receive a paper copy of the Notice of Meeting, let us know, and we'll put you on our mailing list.

If you cannot attend next week's meeting, please be sure to notify your alternate to do so in your stead. Your absence matters.

I look forward to seeing you on the 25th.


Jean-Bernard Minster, Chair
Academic Senate, San Diego Division
