Approval of Minutes of Latest Meeting

The purpose of this policy is to assure that all web sites on university servers are in an accessible format. It can be reviewed at: www.wright.edu/web/access/accountability.html.. The members of the committee voted unanimously to approve the process for accountability format.
B) Update on Responsible Use Policy - Vicki Montavon reported the final revision of the Responsible Use of University Computing Resources Policy was approved by the Cabinet, legal affairs and has been added to the Wright Way Policy on the university website.

Vicki Montavon will discuss a possible procedure with Jackie McMillan.

Terry Anderson reported results of a meeting held on Wednesday, November 8, 2000 with major representatives from areas supporting student, financial and human resource systems to discuss replacement of all current university administrative systems. The student and financial areas reported satisfaction with the current initiatives underway. Although not urgent, the human resource systems are in need of some updates. An RFP is being initiated for a consultant to research available solutions that will meet university needs.
