Are the same principles used across the board to disperse funds or
Are the finances of each department looked at equally and fairly?
Should a question about this be put on the faculty/staff survey?
Ellen Mroz will contact Bill Hatfield about pay equity between the
departments. When a base pay is established, does it follow a consistent
formula? Is there equity in replacing positions?
Susie Swenson brought in copies of the 1994 Integrity Questionnaire for
faculty and staff and the one for students.
The committee will formulate questions for the 2003 questionnaire based on
topics from the 1994 questionnaire.
Topics were reviewed on the old questionnaire, and decisions were made as to
which ones were relevant. Topics to include on the Faculty, Staff and
Administration questionnaire will be:
Code of ethics
Are all students treated equally for their special needs?
Students in sports (unequal work for a grade?)
Ellen suggested adding the following: As a state institution, does CCRI
promote the separation of church and state? Unconstitutional?
Accurate, adequate academic advising services
CCRI courses useful for further education and careers
Administration/faculty engage in operations with integrity
Physical safety and environment
Public policies ensuring institutional integrity/policy manual/collective
Stealing/Are your personal items secure?
Most topics from questions 10-22 will be put in different order and grouped
with common topics.
Time ran out before the Student questionnaire could be looked at.

For the next meeting, committee members are asked to formulate questions for
our 2003 questionnaire based on the 1994 questionnaires and the Student

Thanksgiving. Our survey should be ready by mid- February.
