2007 Membership Committee Report

The Membership Committee, conducting its business over email this past year, considered one new university for UCAR membership, and reviewed 10 membership renewal applications.  In addition, two institutions applied for Academic Affiliation.   

A visit to the new applicant university, the University of Delaware, took place on 16 April, and was attended by committee members Jim Miller and Diane Pataki, and Jack Fellows from UCAR. 

We recommend approval for all Member institutions whose applications we reviewed this year.  The Members will vote on our recommendations at the Annual Meeting in October; please review the reports below.   No vote is needed on the Academic Affiliate recommendations; the Membership Committee’s approval completes their affiliation process.

I want to thank the members of the committee for reading the applications and for writing the reports—Robert Black, Amy Clement, Russell Elsberry, Matt Hitchman, Jim Miller, Diane Pataki, and David Smith.
