The College Administrative Council (CAC) met in the Nursing Conference room from 3:00-5:00. 

Dr. Corder called the meeting to order.


In Attendance: Dr. Jan Corder, Dr. Jessica Dolecheck, Emmy Doughty,  Dr. Judy Fellows, Dr. Florencetta Gibson, Jay Hicks, Beverly Jarrell, Peggy Meredith, Marge Michel, and Debbie Wisenor.


Absent:  Dr. Paxton Oliver– excused

1.   Advising

                Dr. Corder introduced Barbara Michelaides from the Student Success Center.  The Student

Success Center will be advising all freshmen students in all programs beginning in Fall 2007.

Ms. Michelaides discussed when to cut off advising for students in the SSC.  What transfers to health sciences degrees.  Does each department need to handle the transfers or do they need to go to the department head.  Suggestion on transfers – maybe we can get Student Success Center to have a one stop shop to get transfer students courses approved.  Do they need to assign an adviser to each program as a liaison for the SSC or do we want to combine different programs together. It was decided not to group any programs together for the liaison.  She also said the new Degree Audit program is in the testing phase.  The CICSPLUS adviser screen 119 needs to be updated weekly.    


2.   Approval of Minutes.

                Dr. Corder asked for a motion to approve the minutes from September 27, 2006.  The motion to
