A memo to Chairs/Directors for Fall/Winter course offerings will be sent out shortly.  Not all proposals will be accepted, and courses will be monitored carefully for enrolment.  A short discussion followed.

Hiring
Hiring proposals for 2018/2019 are due to the Dean’s Office by December 21 and will then be forwarded on the Provost’s Office for consideration.  Replacement hires and deferred decisions will be considered first with strategic hires after that.  It was mentioned that there will not be many hires in this category but that it was/is important to submit requests now for consideration later.  A template will be sent out soon which will outline what criteria/information is required.

Dean’s Report to Faculty Council, Friday, October 13th, 2017

OUF
R. Koster gave an update on OUF and thanked everyone who participated.  There were approximately 140,000 students who attended this event this year.  Information has been collected from those students who attended the fair and Chairs/Directors can get a list of those students who were interested in their programs from Shannon Maloney, Recruitment Coordinator.

Classroom Visits
R. Koster visited selected first year classes with a representative from the Student Success Centre the last week in September and the first week in October.  

Newsletter
The fall newsletter is now online with the hard copies to be distributed soon.  The process for preparing our newsletters begins months ahead of the release date, ie: July for the winter edition.  We are currently producing two per year with no more than eight pages per issue.  Our current target is alumni and outreach.

CEDL Committee
The Office of Continuing Education and Distributed Learning will no longer exist.  A committee has been formed to review the process and to decide on steps going forward.  Calls for next spring/summer have been sent out, compiled and will be forwarded on the committee for discussion.  It is their goal to make all decisions equitable.  (A discussion followed regarding enrolment, courses offered and course cancellations.)

Equity Hiring
An update on the previous Faculty Council discussing concerns of equity with regard to hiring was provided.  R. Koster had met with D. Geer to discuss options and about the possibility of a pilot project to decide on best practices.  Options as to what these would be and how to get there were discussed at length during the faculty council meeting; it was suggested that D. Geer and M. McPherson be asked to attend our next Faculty Council meeting to suggest what the next step might be.

Dean’s Report
Dean’s Report to Faculty Council, Thursday, May 18, 2017
Update re: Dean of Faculty and Social Sciences Search

At this point in time, I have no new information about the process to appoint a new Dean for the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities. I will keep the faculty updated via email if there is any new information from the Office of the Provost.

New Faculty FTTT Appointments
We are in the process of holding interviews for five FTTT positions in the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities. It is expected that all appointments will be confirmed before the end of June and in time for the start of the Fall term.

SEM Messaging
I have been made aware that the messaging around the SEM process may not have been communicated as clearly as necessary, specifically around the theme of Faculty/Department/School resources. In my previous remarks to the Faculty Council, I gave a brief context for the Lakehead University exercise as in relationship to the larger issue of changing funding model currently in negotiation between Ontario Universities and the Ministry. Lakehead University has engaged in a SEM process that will work to focus the work that every academic unit engages in around student recruitment and retention. The main purpose of the institutional strategy around a plan for strategic enrollment is to work together to improve student recruitment and retention, not to root out programs that have dropping enrollment numbers for the purpose to limiting existing recourses. In fact, the SEM process is intended to better inform and engage all stakeholders in the creation of a unit-specific plan, and to work together to improve efforts around recruitment and enrollment.

Convocation
Just a quick reminder that the convocation for graduates from the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities will take place on Saturday, June 3 starting at 2.00 pm in the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium. Faculty are, as always, encouraged to attend.

Assistant Dean’s Report
No report was submitted.

6.
Departmental/School Reports
There were no departmental/school reports.

Other Business
1. Election of New Chair and Vice-Chair of Faculty Council.

I. Lemée stated that there were two nominations for Chair of Faculty Council.  J. Roth and T. Puddephatt both put their names forward after being seconded as per the rules of the constitution.  I. Lemée told Council that the Committee had decided that as only two names were put forward, the person who was not elected to be Chair of Faculty Council would fill the positon of Vice-Chair.  Ballots were cast which resulted in T. Puddephatt being elected as Chair and J. Roth elected as Vice-Chair.

2. 2017/2018 Timetable.
M. Stevenson talked about how late the loading sheets were this year in comparison with other years.  A. Carastathis stated that the loading sheets were released in February and were still not complete.  A. Guttman also mentioned that there were delays with the online calendar as well.  Several individuals stated their concern regarding the revised registration dates in July.

7.  Next Faculty Council Meeting:  September 2017.
