Announcement from the Chair
No report.

Clinical Fellows Salary
Drs. Neal Cohen, William Grossman and Susan Wall met with the committee to discuss clinical fellows salary scale policy. The discussion led to the formation of a task force to address clinical faculty salary concerns. Dr. Richard Price agreed to chair the task force, which will include Drs. Andre Campbell, Samuel Hawgood, William Grossman and Susan Wall. The Clinical Fellows Salary Task Force will formulate recommendations for review by the Academic Senate Chair.

Budget Process
On a monthly basis, Steve Barclay will keep the committee apprised of budgetary issues at the campus level with updates of University budgetary matters.


Enterprise Network System (ENS)
Steve Barclay reported that the campus received $1 million in new money this year. The ENS budget for fiscal year 2001-2002 will be $8.5 million. The committee learned that an ENS Advisory/Recharge Committee was established for 2000-2001. The Chancellor will continue to fund network infrastructure upgrades for sites located outside of the Medical Center. UCSF satellite locations, where service is not currently available (SFGH) will be viewed on a case-by-case basis. Barclay reported that while funding is not permanent, dialogue is ongoing. Barclay described 3 ENS funding alternatives and their impacts. Efforts continue to obtain funding from indirect costs.


MRU in Neurodegenerative Diseases
Consideration was given to installing a joint Academic Planning and Budget and Graduate Council task force to review Dr. Stan Prusiner’s proposal for a statewide MRU in Neurodegenerative Diseases, for response by October 15, 2000.

The Compendium stipulates that the University Committee on Research Policy (UCORP) rather than the University Committee on Graduate Affairs (UCGA) is responsible for reviewing ORUs and MRUs. Therefore the committee concluded that the MRU review should be led by the Committee on Research (COR), chaired by Dennis Deen, with two additional members from either COR or ad hoc from outside COR. Tony Hunt agreed to serve on the task force, representing the Committee on Academic Planning and Budget and suggested that Acting Librarian Karen Butter be invited to serve as well.
