  2.  MINUTES OF APRIL 13, 1988 AND APRIL 27, 1988 MEETINGS.

 

      The Minutes of the April 13 and 27, 1988 meetings of the Commission  on

      Research were approved as distributed.

 

  3.  COMMITTEE REPORTS.

 

      COMMITTEE ON ACADEMIC CONDUCT

 

      According  to  Dr. Arnold, the Committee has made a presentation to the

      Faculty Senate that indicated a report had been developed for consider-

      ation in the upcoming academic year.  The Chairman expressed  the  hope

      that the Commission will examine the report (or statement) in the light

      of  the federal requirement that the University have such statements in

      place.

 

  4.  COMMISSION   ON   RESEARCH   ANNUAL   REPORT   AND    THE    SELF-STUDY

      RECOMMENDATIONS.

 

      Copies  of  the  Annual Report were distributed.   This report includes

      items discussed during the year that relate to the Self-Study Recommen-

      dations.  The task for the Commission for the next year or so  will  be

      to  clarify and establish some guidelines, policies, or recommendations

      for policy that will serve to implement the intent  of  the  Self-Study

      Recommendations.

 

      The  Chairman  drew  attention  to  the last table in the Annual Report

      which provides a running tabulation of the policies and procedures that

      have been adopted by the Commission on Research  since  it  was  estab-

      lished.    The  highlighted  items are either modifications of existing

      policies or new policies that have been initiated in the current year.

 

  5.  BUDGET UPDATE

 

      The Chairman reported that there was no formal  update  at  this  time.

      Some  proposed  changes  in administration of the Core Research program

      will remain on hold until the University budget is released.

 

 

  In ending his tenure as Chairman of the Commission, Dr. Steiss stated  that

  he  had  enjoyed  his  six  years service in that capacity and wished those

  present a pleasant summer.  We applaud his service to the  research  commu-

  nity.

 

  The  meeting adjourned at 4:45 p.m.  The next meeting will be September 14,

  1988, at 3:30 p.m. in the President's Board Room.
