    Chair Talk 4.11 - Move On

    Chair Talk 4.11   Move On   My last month as Chair looms.  I have tried in these four years to insert a faculty voice into the doings of the administration.  I have eschewed an “us” vs “them” mentality while trying to help “them” understand what most of “us” are going through on a daily basis at the UA.  With a few exceptions, this approach has been met with trust and cooperation, and I thank all the senior (and not-so-senior) administrators who chose to treat the Chair of the Faculty as a partner.  It isn’t always like that, as I’ve heard from colleagues elsewhere.     Increasing faculty part...

    Chair Talk 4.10 - Looking Forward

    Chair Talk 4.10   Looking ForwardCongratulations to Prof. Jessica Summers, who will be the next Chair of the Faculty.  It is good news that there was competition and a choice.  It is also good news that we had a better-than-usual turnout of voters.  Turnout was still only 22%, so we have a way to go.  It has been an exciting four years, filled with ups and downs, successes and failures.  I’d like to believe that the increased turnout at this election was one of the successes, though it could also reflect concerns about specific issues that arose recently.  Whichever played the dominant role, i...

    Chair Talk 4.9-Some Good News

    Chair Talk 4.9     Some Good News Two kinds of good news to report: first, there is increased interest in participating in shared governance.  Elections for faculty officers and other faculty governance roles are underway right now, and I urge all faculty to vote.  There is competition for some of the positions, including that of Chair of the Faculty, and one can hope that the presence of choice motivates as many faculty as possible to have their say at the ‘ballot box’. As I think I have mentioned before, the Chair of the Faculty is an invited guest at the meetings of ICAC (Intercollegiate At... Read More
