2 ii. Because we want the speaker to make a big impact (especially if brought in from elsewhere), Isabel and Judy met with the Faculty Senate Chair and Chair Elect on 02 10 11 to discuss providing the speaker with a larger and broader audience, and other strategies to move toward a faculty policy: 1. use UFOAP recipients to get the word out directly to their colleges and departments 2. identify other faculty resources on campus {e.g., ULC member who publishes several OA journals) 3. specifically target CLAS to reach the greatest number of faculty and disciplines 4. not go to the time, expense, and restrictions of bringing in an outside speaker; 5. instead use a more local and customized approach of using OA authors speaking to their colleges (make effort to bring in the social sciences), and possibly involving library liaisons; this joins with the effort to create a faculty mandate 5. New business: ? Next meeting: second Monday of every month, 10:30 a.m., LW 429, Mar. 14
