Dear Faculty Colleagues

Chancellor Folt and the Board of Trustees have been asked to explore options for the disposition of the Confederate statue known as Silent Sam. They are seeking input from a variety of constituents, including faculty. To assist in this process, the Office of Faculty Governance is offering a series of brainstorming workshops to give faculty across campus the opportunity to provide constructive input about possible next steps. Members of the Faculty Executive Committee (FEC) have volunteered to lead these sessions. I invite as many of you as possible to participate since we are looking for a wide range of ideas.

Please see available sessions below and sign up for one session using this registration link ASAP. Our ability to accommodate participants at each location is varied due to available space. We encourage faculty to considered signing up for a session outside of their usual locale on campus to stimulate a mixing of ideas.

I would like to thank the Office of Faculty Governance staff and FEC members for acting on short notice to organize these sessions.


Leslie V. Parise

Chair of the Faculty
Professor and Chair of Biochemistry and Biophysics
