Glassman to speak during Faculty Senate

Cassie Buchman, Administration Editor

The Faculty Senate will vote on items from its last meeting and hear President David Glassman speak at 2 p.m. Tuesday in the Booth Library conference room.

Jemmie Robertson, the Faculty Senate chair, said members are voting on the previous meeting’s items because they did not have a quorum.

These items included are a letter from the coalition on intercollegiate athletics, a draft resolution for House Resolution 275, an email from Marita Gronnvoll concerning the need for a replacement for the Council on Academic Affairs, and an email from Andrew McNitt concerning Commitment to Excellence scholarships.

Glassman will also answer various questions from the Faculty Senate.

“(President Glassman) will set his own agenda for what he would like to discuss with the Senate,” Robertson said. “However, I did update the president on a few ‘items of concern’ amongst the faculty that I thought it would be helpful if he spoke about.”

John Henderson, the assistant vice president for academic affairs for technology, will also speak during the meeting.

“John Henderson will speak about CATS restructuring at 3 p.m.,” Robertson said. “There is growing concern amongst the faculty about recent layoffs in ISS and CATS and hopefully senators will have the chance to discuss those issues.”
