Senate Liaisons

The Faculty Senate Liaisons met virtually with the Faculty Senate on October 21 and discussed two topics:  a proposal to add an external observer on Personnel Committees when they make tenure and promotion decisions and the impact of COVID on teaching in the spring/summer/fall 2020 and opportunities to make adjustments for Spring 2021 and beyond. Information collected regarding the external observer will be used by the Faculty Senate to inform the creation of a Personnel Committee policy, which the Senate is in the process of drafting, and the COVID-related information was forwarded to the Continuity of Education Pandemic Workgroup to inform their recommendations for Spring 2021 teaching. A summary report of the information collected by the Senate on these two topics is available here.
