The Faculty Council will meet Friday, November 13, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm in its new, UPSTAIRS, location in Kerr Hall Room 2001 (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.
The agenda this month includes as a centerpiece consideration of the final one of the four resolutions presented last spring regarding issues around athletics. This resolution had to do with admissions standards, and was referred to the Advisory Committee on Undergraduate Admissions. Their response and recommendations are appended to the agenda and will be discussed before the vote. There will also be another installment of the diversity syllabus, this one focused on issues around fixed-term faculty, and a vote on a resolution affirming the faculty’s understanding of academic freedom.
Council members should try to arrive by 2:45 and take seats towards the front/middle of the room in the areas marked by the table signs. Non-Council members should take the remaining seats around the perimeter.
REMOTE PARTICIPATION: The new room permits remote viewing via a web-based (easy) platform called Blue Jeans. The link to join the presentation is on the agenda. You are welcome to use this if you cannot be there in person.
LIVE-TWEETING: The Office of Faculty Governance will be live-tweeting the meeting from @UNCFacGov under the hashtag #FacCouncil–joined by several in-Council tweeters! Your tweeting constituents may want to follow along.
