Approval of Minutes
Professor Anne Ulmer informed the Council of a new federal program called PLUS, which provides junior transfer students with scholarships. DIG is currently investigating Carleton's interest in PLUS. Professor Ulmer also noted that DIG is still discussing the implications of Associate Dean Ramsay's presentation on faculty recruitment, especially the possibility of interviewing faculty members who have left Carleton. Finally, Professor Ulmer reported that discussions of the recent MCAN (Multicultural Alumni Network) reunion indicated that, amongst the alumni, there are generational differences in the perceptions of the campus' multicultural climate.
