We met with Interim Chancellor Mark Mone and discussed UWM’s role with Charter Schools, the status of the investigation into the TKE fraternity malfeasance, and ongoing issues with the budget. We also discussed how to create good collaborative dynamics with Marquette University especially considering the interests of their new president.
In an effort to clarify agenda items regarding upcoming speakers at Faculty Senate, we will post the rationale explaining why guests are being invited to Senate. For the October 16 Faculty Senate, Vice Chancellor for University Relations Tom Luljak is requested to discuss government relations and lobbying efforts and its connection to shared governance. Also requested to speak is a representative from the School of Education who can field questions about our oversight relationship with Charter Schools especially in terms of recent controversial policies regarding some of our Charter’s “money for students” recruiting schemes.
