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. 5, in 101 McCormick Hall. All members of the University community are invited to attend.
Agenda items include an update by Provost Christopher Eisgruber and others on how present economic conditions will affect the University's budget this year and beyond and what cost-savings initiatives have been implemented.
Also to be discussed is a new task force composed of students, faculty, staff and alumni that will review the relationships between the University and the eating clubs. James Steward, the new director of the Princeton University Art Museum, will be introduced. In addition, there will be an update on H1N1 and flu-like illness on campus.
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."
President Shirley M. Tilghman presides over the meetings. The proposed meeting dates for the rest of the year are Nov. 16, Dec. 14, Feb. 8, March 29 and May 3. All are at 4:30 p.m.
