Faculty Development:2017 - 18: The committee to develop a survey to report at the fall or spring plenary session.
EDAC:2017 - 2018: This resolution is old. The Committee chair needs to determine if this resolution is still relevant. If it is, then the committee needs to make it a priority and create and administer the survey this month. If the committee feels it is not, then the chair needs to discuss with the president and seek approval from the Exec Committee. Regardless -- the field needs to be updated on this resolution.
