Faculty Governance Forum, Oct. 11

I am writing to invite and encourage you to attend an open forum on UMW Faculty Governance, hosted by Jim Lollar (Pres., Faculty Senate of Virginia) and the UFC on Friday, Oct. 11, 3-5 p.m. in Lee Hall, Room 411. Jim Lollar will be presenting the findings from the faculty survey on faculty governance that was circulated by the UFC this summer and leading discussion on where to go from here. The survey indicated that a majority of faculty are dissatisfied with our current governance system and would be open to fine-tuning or changing elements of it. Jim Lollar has extensive experience with assisting the faculty governance systems at other institutions to evolve. We hope you will join us for the discussion.
