We spent much of our time discussing an upcoming meeting of The Regents this week in Madison. Here are the items of interest on their agenda:
- Faculty Workload, Quality of Education, and Compensation
- Update on 30 credits General Education Core Transfer
- Freshman Admissions Policy Review
The first item will be covered in an article by the Journal Sentinel that is scheduled to come out this week. Members of the UC have been in touch with the journalist in order to try to tell the story of our severe salary shortfalls in comparison to similar institutions, and how this affects retention of faculty and the economy of the region.
