- Planning Unit Coordinator DTF: Please note that there were no numbers on the Planning Unit Coordinators (PUC) DTF vote in May 2014 because the minutes said that the final proposal was passed by a voice vote “with the vast majority voting in favor, no voting to oppose, and a small number of faculty indicating they were abstaining.” There was no record in the faculty meeting minutes of how many people attended that meeting.
