We began with a discussion about the status of faculty governance at the level of state policy. Credible sources have informed us that taking faculty and staff governance out of state statutes is under serious discussion. When Provost Britz arrived, we had a follow up to the Faculty Senate conversation about the Strategic Plan, after which we continued with our earlier discussion about that status of faculty governance. We agreed that we need to find a lot more information about proposed legislative changes. After discussing the short term schedule of meetings, we adjourned, and wish everyone Happy Holidays.
