Remarks by the Dean:
Dean Sommer reported on the exciting activities during the previous week when his Lasker award was announced and presented. He hopes the School will be increasingly visible as a result of the award.
The School-wide Research Day on October 15 will include a followup of the April retreat on School-wide interdisciplinary research activities. Faculty and students should be reminded to attend and there will be no classes held during the day.
Dr. Lawrence requested that some department chairs meet with a group of Hopkins medical students interested in exploring careers in public health. He commented that the medical students have found previous discussions with Public Health faculty very productive.
Report of the Faculty Senate:
Dr. Anthony reported on the joint Faculty Senate/Committee of the Whole meeting, and a subsequent Faculty Senate meeting where a draft policy on intellectual property associated with electronic educational materials was discussed. He said he did not foresee any insurmountable problems in achieving a general consensus.
Dr. Sommer noted that Dr. MacKenzie's ad hoc committee has done an excellent job in drafting the policy, and that a faculty committee is proposed to handle the details and deal with special situations arising from its implementation.
Other BusinessProposed PhD Program in the Department of Mental Hygiene
Dr. Anthony briefly presented the rationale for beginning a PhD program in the Department of Mental Hygiene. The program was approved by the Advisory Board and will appropriately forwarded to the Provost's office and to the Graduate Board.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 4:50 p.m.
