Faculty Senate to discuss minority enrollment, recruitment

Luis Martinez, Administration Editor

The Faculty Senate will be hearing a special presentation on minority recruitment and enrollment during Tuesday’s meeting.

Grant Sterling, the chair of the senate, said he was unsure of what the presentation would entail.

“One of the senators said he’d like to have a discussion about the topic following the issue being brought up during the recent NCA visit,” Sterling said. “I’m not sure exactly what direction will be taken in the presentation, or in the discussion afterwards.”

James Ochwa-Echel was the senator who requested this topic to be discussed during the upcoming meeting.

Sterling said one of the senators wanted to discuss another issue concerning Eastern’s affordability

“Senator (Jeff) Stowell wishes to discuss the affordability of EIU,” Sterling said. “I have tentatively scheduled him to have the floor during our first March meeting.”

Also on the agenda is an email regarding the role of the University Personal Committee from David Smith, the chair of that committee.

Sterling said he has not scheduled Smith to come speak during the meeting, but if there are any questions in regard to the email, the senators can discuss it in a future meeting.

Faculty Senate will meet at 2 p.m. Tuesday in Room 4440 of Booth Library.
