1. Roll called.
2. Dr. McPhee, Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs and Co-Chair for the University's
Compensation Study, came and spoke on the new comensation study. Below are a few of
the key points that Dr. McPhee shared:
Q: Has the council discussed putting steps in each pay grade?
A: Right now there are really no steps to move up. It is not a separate issue with the
council, but there has been discussion.
Q: Will there be new PAQ's for everyone to fill out?
A: Individuals in positions not disputed will not be asked to redo a PAQ. The council
has requested from Human Resources a list of problem positions. There may be a more
simplified PAQ. They hope to develop a system that forces the supervisor to be a part
of the completion of the PAQ.
Q: Limits on positions. Shouldn't there be at least a cost of living raise?
A: Yes. The committee is taking a look at that.
3. Minutes approved as amended.

concerning drop-offs and pick-ups (especially of mail.) Individuals with concerns
should address their questions to the Parking Office where possible arrangements could
be made to meet their needs.
