Senator Pasternack presented the Faculty Flow Report. He explained the focus of the committee was to look at what was important in terms of recruiting success, retention, and retirement planning. The committee also addressed two additional issues: 1) trying to estimate future hiring needs over next 8-10 years; and 2) developing a financial model for how much could be saved in terms of retirement and whether those monies could then be used for recruiting or salary savings. System success rate has ranged around 75 percent over the last few years; however, individual success rate by campus has varied and success rate in disciplines also varied.
Senator Pasternack concluded his report and was thanked by the Senate. Senate returned to document ASD 03-60 Draft Electronic Email for further discussion.
