Theconsultants have been charged with using different schools with amore comparable budget to GU & in size, endowment, faculty,student & staff ratios as well as compensation packages. Their first list of WestCoast schools did not give them sufficient data to compare. The consultants met withfaculty senate members & staff assembly separately on4/27. Faculty areresearching the proposed schools mentioned in the consultantsreport. Staff arecoming from a different angle because their salaries arebenchmarked to local markets & local jobs. Heather Murray hasgiven some info to the assembly to use in their proposal to theconsultants. Marcia is working on a document that will be sharedwith the executive council & compensation committee before itis sent to the consultants next week.
Daycare Committee Update
Krystal Burns has a list from Family Care Resources. The response to the Zagwebsurvey was low. Thecommittee has learned from the information that they have receivedthat the major daycare issue is affordability and not availabilityas was first thought. The Logan neighborhood has several licensed daycares within a shortdistance of the university. The committee will bevisiting the daycares. The committee will focus on the possibilityof a sliding scale or subsidized daycare with the localcenters.
It was recommended that the Daycare Committee become a regularcommittee of the Staff Assembly so that information will continueto be updated.
Basketball Ticket Distribution Update
Staff & faculty subcommittee met with Athletic Director, MikeRoth, on possible solutions to the basketball ticket distributionproblems for the staff & faculty. Mike is very open todiscussing options. Apossible weighted lottery or a way that employees could pick up thetickets prior to their work schedules is being discussed. Part of the problem is thatemployees are taking time off to stand in line & some staff& faculty are unable to leave positions or classes to be ableto stand in line.
