Committee Report

     Under the leadership of Tom Rost and Theodore (Ted) De Jong, the committee met with Vice Provost for Information and Education to discuss survivor’s needs to access their spouses’ IT accounts and how to facilitate that. There is a process for that. There appears to be no process for accessing the deceased emeriti’s computers. They also met with Academic Senate chair and staff to discuss the same issues and to coordinate AS Welfare committee with EA welfare committee. A proposal is being considered to formalize the membership of the EA welfare committee chair as a member of the AS Welfare committee. Rost and De Jong also met with the
Faculty Advisor to the Chancellor to address these issues and come to a resolution – in process.
