4. Members Meeting Discussion

Time is allotted for committee members to follow up on any items from the Members' Meeting, and to make suggestions for next year's meeting.


5. Follow-up on Spring 2002 meetings with NCAR and UOP divisions and programs.

The Spring 2002 NCAR and UOP division and programs presentations provided the URC with information about how the divisions perceived their current and planned university interactions. They also were aimed at giving the URC an opportunity to provide critical feedback. Does the URC have recommendations for enhancing the relations of specific programs or divisions to the university community beyond the informal feedback we provided at the spring meetings?
