Civil Service Committee update, October 2004

Rochester will host fall meeting

From Brief, October 13, 2004

Rochester will be the site of the next Civil Service Committee (CSC) meeting, October 28.

Once a year, the CSC meets on a University campus outside the Twin Cities. The University of Minnesota, Rochester (UMR), shares a campus with two other schools--the Rochester Community and Technical College and the Winona State University-Rochester Center--all housed within the University Center Rochester. The center is located on the southeast edge of Rochester.

The meeting will start at 9 a.m. with a welcome from provost David Carl. The group will tour the facilities, resume regular committee business, and adjourn at noon.

Agenda items this month will include officer and subcommittee reports. The full agenda will be posted on the Web about a week before the meeting at
