Law School Budget: Murta reviewed the budget for FY10 with minimal changes to this latest document. No changes to the Masters of Law or the LLM programs at this time. As the State is trying to budget and cut funding in areas itself, we shall pay close attention to the CalPac contract.

FY10 Unfunded Items: An updated Unfunded List had been redistributed. The goal with the list is to establish those items that are not fiscally achievable unless our enrollment numbers are higher than currently projected. Ranking the unfunded items will aid the President to view them and provided recommendations should additional funding become possible.

PTEd Innovation Initiative: Drs. Lynn Beck and Cathy Peterson are requesting funding to create a PTEd certificate program. This program would provide current African physiotherapists with training for university faculty positions in Africa through the establishment of Pacific’s PTEd program. Peterson developed framework using the Global Program for Professional Development, (GPPD), modeled after the Health Professions Educational Leaders Pathway Program. The goal is to deliver through existing courses in the School of Education and weave into existing courses in the Doctor of Physical therapy program. Committee approved the first phase of funding of $18K.  Additional funding will be requested in the amount of $28,500 when ready to move forward with the second phase.
