  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]

Faculty senate discusses new role

The changing nature of faculty senate was the central theme during its first meeting Tuesday night.

Joel O’Dorisio, chair of faculty senate, said before the meeting that the senate’s role going forward will be less about representing faculty working conditions and more about implementing curriculum.

“There have been massive changes at the University now that there’s a faculty union,” said O’Dorisio.

O’Dorisio said the senate’s new focus would be the “landscape of education” and how it functions.

The reformation of the senate’s committees was also discussed. O’Dorisio expressed a desire to streamline the organization.

“I’m really hopeful we can turn this into an active body,” he said. “Less work, more activity.”

O’Dorisio said the senate wants to find its feet in order to fulfill its new role in an effective way.

“I think everyone has an interest in making the system in general run smoothly,” O’Dorisio said. “I think everybody’s on board with that.”

He said the University is constantly changing, and the faculty senate is no exception.
