This is an update on the academic program changes process.
Yesterday, at scheduled meetings, the United Faculty and the Faculty Senate received preliminary and confidential information on potential academic program changes. University administration is aware that this information has been shared outside those meetings. This is unfortunate and disappointing.
At the conclusion of yesterday's meetings, the United Faculty leadership and Faculty Senate asked for additional consultative meetings. The Faculty Senate meeting is scheduled for Monday afternoon, March 5. The United Faculty meeting is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, March 6.
It is important to remember that no final decisions regarding academic program changes have been made or will be made until all consultations are complete.
