    Approval of Notes for October 19, 2021 - There was a request to add wording underscoring both that the current list did not include growth positions and that there was a need for discussing growth positions. Wording will be added and notes will come back for approval at the next meeting.

    DASG Report: Fiza reported that the first meeting for 2021-22 DASG reviewed their By-laws Elections code was updated.

    Ranked-choice voting: Ranked choice voting provides voters with a backup to their vote and minimizes strategic voting.

    Mary reviewed the slides explaining the ranked-choice voting algorithm at  

    All then used the Ranked-Choice Voting Tool:  to rank ten means of communication from favorite to least favorite. All have link to the results which includes a round by round breakdown. Not ranking all 10 is a choice and as in all voting methodologies can be preferred by an individual.

    Hiring Prioritization Criteria from the Hiring Prioritization Workbook were discussed and updated. There was a desire to add criteria based on impact and growth:

    • if the position would increase access and/or retention to the program, and
    • if the position is critical to sustainability of program

    In the consideration column add:

    • Consider effect on providing support services to target groups
    • Consider what would be the impact on the department/area if position was not filled.

    Questions were asked. In some departments where there is no full-time faculty member how are outside regulations/certifications to be met? In situations like this, does a need for a full-time position for such a department go through our decision tree differently?

    People requested data sheets and supplemental questions be arranged differently so the information is easier to access when it comes time for prioritization.
