Johnson Committee Report 2007
Andrew Marcus (President of the UO University Senate)
Gordon Sayre (Vice President of the UO Senate)
MEMO FROM: Peter Gilkey (Chair Johnson Committee 2006/7)
MEMO RE: Final report of the Johnson Committee
DATE: 24 April 2007
Dear Andrew, Gordon, and Gwen:
Senate Legislation requires a report by each committee chair of a standing University Committee to the Senate on an annual basis. It is my honor and priviledge to make such a report to you as chair of the Johnson committee for 2006/7.
The committee met once, considered the documentation provided for the nominee(s), and forwarded the name of a nominee with a favorable recommendation to the President of the University of Oregon as specified in the enabling legislation of the committee.
The committee recommended that the returning members of the committee for 2007/8 act proactively to seek nominations for the Johnson Award next year. In particular, we decided to contact the Deans of the various schools and colleges and ask them to transmit information concerning the nomination process for a Johnson Award to their department heads together with a request for appropriate action. We hope thereby to spread the net as widely as possible next year.
Peter B Gilkey
Chair (2006/7) Johnson Committee
