An ad hoc committee of faculty members charged with recommending policies to continue strong tenure protections in response to legislative changes made in the 2015-17 state budget has released a report with recommendations.
The committee’s report was approved on Sept. 21 by the University Committee. The Faculty Senate is expected to have a first reading of the proposal at its meeting on Oct. 5, and could vote on it as early as its Nov. 2 meeting. The policies and procedures would also need approval from the UW System Board of Regents.
Faculty listening sessions are scheduled for Sept. 29 from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. in room 1306 of the Health Sciences Learning Center; Sept. 30 from 5 to 7 p.m. in room 1220 of Microbial Sciences; and Oct. 1 from 5 to 7 p.m. in B10, Ingraham Hall. The committee suggests sharing feedback with your senator, should you not be able to attend.
