Saturday/Sunday Basketball-Volleyball Proposal: Sue Jeno said she sent a resolution to President Kupchella on behalf of the IAC outlining the committees concerns with the moving basketball and volleyball to a Saturday/Sunday afternoon format. She followed up with a phone call to the President’s Office. Phil Harmeson told her that they had received the memo and would have more time to address the issue after the legislative session.
Facilities – Wellness: Sue Jeno reported that the students have
not decided on a plan for their
Compliance: Jared Bruggeman was not available for this meeting. Bev Hopman said he would have a year end report at the May meeting.
Seating/Ticket Sales: Bev Hopman reported that no final decision has been made regarding reseating at Engelstad Arena. The tentative plan is to move the students from sections 108 and 109 to section 111 on the lower level. They would also have sections 308, 309, 310, 310A and 311 on the upper level. Roger Thomas will continue to work with student government to reach a final decision. Lillian Elsinga said she had received much of the same information at the Student Senate meeting. Judy DeMers asked how the season ticket holders in section 111 would be notified. Bev Hopman replied that according to Paula Sondreal, Box Office Manager, the move would affect approximately 100 season ticket holders since much of section 111 is held for corporate seating. The ticket office plans to contact each affected season ticket holder by phone.
Update on Athletic Department Open Positions: John Sirignano said there are two open assistant athletic director positions. One is a newly defined position that will work as Director of the Fighting Sioux Club and Development Director. Phone interviews have been completed and he is arranging for the top three candidates to come on campus for personal interviews. The second position is Kathy McCann’s replacement and with be the Assistant Athletic Director - Facilities/SWA. The Athletic Department has received the names from Human Resources for the top candidates and phone interviews are being scheduled. The top candidates will be invited to visit campus for personal interviews. Bev Hopman will notify the IAC members of the dates and times for each candidate’s interview. There was some discussion on the job title “Senior Women’s Administrator”. Lillian Elsinga found the term offensive and stressed that talent is not gender related. John Sirignano said the position title is mandated by the NCAA and by NCAA guidelines must be filled by a woman. In many schools, the SWA is often one of the female coaches. At UND, the position has been expanded to an assistant athletic director and facility administrator.
Sioux Club: Jeff Bowen reported that as of
Ray Diez asked whether the IAC was charged with approving ticket prices. Sue Jeno said we are charged with reviewing the budget but did not see tickets specifically referenced in the duties listed by the University Senate.
Judy DeMers asked about attendance for women’s hockey. John Sirignano said UND finished 2nd in the nation in overall attendance. The first weekend accounted for a large percentage of those fans. Athletics is working on ways to increase the attendance, including scheduling most of the games on the main ice sheet. The department has also put in a bid to host the 2006 Women’s Frozen Four.
Gender Equity: Jared Bruggeman will give an update on gender equity at the next meeting.
IAC Alumni Representation: Several years ago, the number of alumni representatives on the committee was increased to three to allow for training time for the new members. Judy DeMers moved we request the University Senate to return the alumni representation to two members. Ray Diez seconded. Lowell Schweigert thought it may be useful to add a third alumni member, preferably a women to represent the growing number of female athletes. Lillian Elsinga said all committees need to address equity. Judy DeMers suggested that both sides be presented to the Senate. The vote was called and the motion carried by a majority vote. Sue Jeno will contact the University Senate to have the issue placed on the agenda for their next meeting.
Letterwinners – Spring: Ray Diez moved the committee approve the letterwinners as recommended by their head coaches for the winter and spring sports. Susan Nelson seconded. Motion carried. (A list is attached at the end of these minutes.)
Budget: John Sirignano will have a budget report available for the May 20 meeting.
Schedules: Proposed schedules were distributed for football, volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball and men’s and women’s hockey. Sue Jeno questioned the men’s basketball schedule, specifically the non-conference games scheduled for mid-week. Ray Diez moved to table the discussion on schedules until the next meeting. Judy DeMers seconded. Motion carried.
Welcome New Member: Sue Jeno introduced and welcomed Lowell Schweigert as the new alumni representative.
