The UC welcomed three newly elected members of the committee: Jasmine Alinder, John Boyland, and Marcia Parsons. Ron Perez, interim Dean of the Zilber School of Public Health, joined us to discuss the steps the School is taking to meet accreditation requirements. Accreditors are coming in October and will make a decision in June. The UC chair report included an update on the work of the Integrated Support Services (ISS) committee, charged with finding ways to better organize IT, HR, and other business functions across campus. We then grappled with the working draft of the post-tenure review document (see link below) and discussed some small revisions to be made before it is sent to the Codification committee. We doled out a few committee appointments for UC members and began a discussion about how the university can better communicate our new R1 status in a way that affirms our commitment to teaching and that shows the benefits to students in the classroom.
