Dean Paul Martin (DEAS & physics), chair of the FAS Committee on Research Policy, informed the Council about changes in the Faculty’s “Policies Relating to Research and Other Professorial Activities Within and Outside the University,” made to bring it into accord with the recently revised University-wide policy governing external research, consulting, and teaching.
The Council also considered a draft taxonomy of the Faculty’s various centers and institutes. Additionally, the Council approved the proposed Summer School courses for 2001.
