The Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC) will hold its first meeting of the academic year from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1, in Betts Auditorium, School of Architecture. All members of the University community are invited to attend.
Agenda items include the introduction of Alison Boden, the new dean of religious life and the chapel; information on planning for the University's upcoming fundraising campaign presented by the development office staff; and a demonstration of "Second Life," a virtual world that includes a Princeton University "island," by Janet Temos, director of the Educational Technologies Center, who will focus on its uses as a teaching and learning tool.
The CPUC, which first met in October 1969, has the authority, according to its charter, "to consider and investigate any question of University policy, any aspect of the governing of the University and any general issue related to the welfare of the University; and to make recommendations regarding any such matters to the appropriate decision-making bodies of the University or to the appropriate officers of the University."
Membership includes six senior officers of the University, 15 faculty members, 12 undergraduates, seven graduate students, four alumni and seven staff members. The complete list of members is available on the CPUC website.
Meetings are presided over by President Tilghman. The proposed meeting dates for the rest of the year are Nov. 12, Dec. 10, Feb. 11, March 10 and April 21. All are at 4:30 p.m.
