Minutes. Minutes from the April 7 meeting approved.
President’s Report. Two issues.
- GEMS is acquiring an additional security system, called DUO, which may pose difficulties for faculty and professionals lacking secure access to a phone.
- Some colleges do not post procedures and criteria for promotion to tenure. The provost expects that all units will make their guidelines readily available.

Travel Scholarships. The Chapter offered six $ 500 scholarships for professional travel. All UFF members, and only UFF members, are eligible to apply. In response to a query, the Executive Committee decided that eligibility is restricted to the USF Chapter. There were 34 applicants, and recipients were chosen by lot. The six recipients were Lindsay Boggess, Darline Demarie, Elizabeth Metzger, Christina Partin, Brook Sadler, and Lisa Starks.
