Trudy Turner visited and discussed the dire consequences of potential cuts to her Secretary of the University budget, in that these are the modest funds for UC and ASC service. We asked the question, “Does shared governance still matter at UWM, and if so, how is it supported?” Provost Britz arrived and we discussed ongoing issues of the budget, tenure and shared governance, especially the instability of the current situation. We discussed the uncertainty regarding continued value of the sick leave conversion program that is currently being reviewed. We then elected a new chair for next year’s UC (John Reisel) and discussed how UC News will be handled.
