Roger Williams University
Admissions and Enrollment Committee Minutes
October 25, 2010
Present: Scott Rutherford (MNS), Sue McMullen (LIB), Kelly Donnell (SED)
The meeting began at 1:05 a.m. in GHH 107.
Anne Tait has joined the committee. She will participate electronically.
Continued discussion of promoting the concept of a searchable scholarship database for underrepresented groups. We will check databases and with vendors to see if any sites exist that allow students to search scholarships by keywords. Once we have some sites the chair will then assign them out to committee members. Each committee member is asked to explore and create an annotation for the site.
We will contact Lynn Fawthrop regarding a) determining what peer and aspirant schools are doing in this regard and b) adding underrepresented students to the faculty call list in March. We will contact Diane Usher regarding scholarship materials housed at the Financial Aid Office.
We will follow up with Don Mays and Ande Diaz to confirm their visit with the committee in December and to obtain the binder with scholarship information already developed from Rueben.
The meeting was adjourned at 1:30 p.m.
Respectfully submitted by Kelly Donnell, Chair (SED).
