Special session of the UW–Madison Faculty Senate on Sept. 14

Under the authority of Faculty Policies & Procedures 2.06, The University Committee has called for a special session of the Faculty Senate, primarily to collectively discuss faculty experiences and concerns with the Smart Restart, as well as consider a revised academic calendar for spring 2021.

  • What: Special Session of the UW–Madison Faculty Senate
  • When: Monday, September 14, 2020, 3:30
  • Access: online [via blackboard]

The Faculty Senate is always held in open session so anyone may attend and participate. This special session will include one item of critical business for the Senators to consider and vote on: a change to the academic calendar for spring 2021 to limit travel risks during the usual time off by starting a week later and eliminating the week-long spring break. Details on the change will be distributed with materials for the meeting on Tuesday, September 8.

Senate districts still in the midst of electing new senators to replace those whose terms have ended should send their representatives from last year. Please contact Jane Richard, Deputy Secretary of the Faculty with your questions (jane.richard@wisc.edu).
