     *Staff Release Time for Governance Activities - G. Ritter of Personnel

  Services said that the revised memo to Deans, Directors and Department

  Heads should go out this month. He indicated that the memo would be changed

  to say that supervisors "should" allow staff associations to meet during

  regular work hours rather than "may" allow such meetings. He also indicated

  that another change equating the Staff Senate with the Faculty Senate was

  being considered.

  presently available.


     *Linda Margheim Fund - E. Moccia reported that she received three checks
