Personnel policy updates get council approval

Feedback on four draft policies dealing with professional and scientific personnel issues were approved by P&S Council members at their Oct. 3 meeting.

The draft policies were open for public feedback in the policy library through September. Council members voted in favor of motions to endorse two of the policies -- reclassification and summary dismissal -- without changes. Edits were approved for the workforce reorganization and dispute resolution policies.

The council also passed a resolution to acknowledge the contributions of former council member Dan Woodin, who died Sept. 24. Woodin, who worked at ISU since 1977 and was an information systems leader for information technology services, served as council president four times.

Council representatives closed out their meeting with continued group work on council priorities. The goal-setting workshops began at the Sept. 12 council meeting.
