Faculty Senate to address budget cuts, council concerns

Debby Hernandez, Administration Editor

The Faculty Senate will address a conflict that arose from the State University Civil Service System (SUCSS) reportedly acting without proper consultation on Tuesday.

According to a statement from the council of university senates, members of SUCSS are not using proper consultation when reclassifying administrative positions within universities.

The problem arose from the apparent plagiarism of the written thesis by Angela Henderson, Chicago State University provost and vice president for academic affairs.

This led to a disagreement between Chicago State’s Faculty Senate and its Board of Trustees, resulting in the exclusion of the Faculty Senate by the board.

The senate will also assess questions concerning its response to budget cuts that were established by the Council on University Planning and Budgeting and President Bill Perry.

The senate will discuss the problem with Chicago State and the concerns stated by the council of university senates in the meeting.

The Faculty Senate will meet at 2 p.m. Tuesday in the Booth Library Conference Room 4440.
