The Faculty Council will meet this Friday, October 30, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm in our new location in Kerr Hall Room 1001 (Eshelman School of Pharmacy). A map to the building is included on the agenda link below. All members of the faculty are welcome to attend.
Prof. Peter Mucha, who continues to serve as Acting Chair of the Faculty in Prof. Cairns’s absence, will join the chancellor in presiding over the meeting.
Notable items on the agenda include conversation with Chancellor Folt and Provost Dean; an update on the Student Stores Request for Proposals; a report on faculty recruitment and retention; an update from the Ombuds Office as part of the “Diversity Syllabus” conversation; and votes on four resolutions: one honoring our faculty Nobel Prize winners, one making changes in the Pass/Fail policy, one focused on academic support services for student-athletes (originally brought to Council last February) and one to approve 2016 nominees for Distinguished Alumnus/a Awards.
The new location has plenty of room; all interested members of the faculty and university community are welcome to attend.
