More info on Chancellor meeting

Some members have asked for more details about the Chancellor’s response to our meeting on Monday. There is little to report, as you might expect, other than recognition on his part that mistakes were made and that he would have done it differently in hindsight. He acknowledges that he should have kept the faculty search committee informed. He appeared to acknowledge that shared governance is not working well in other areas – we specifically raised issues about privilege and tenure.

At least the Chancellor now knows that we are attentive and will raise issues publicly when necessary. At the suggestion of one of our members, we are working on setting up a DFA web site that can report the opinions of members gathered during regular surveys on issues of importance to us. We hope to disseminate the collective opinion of the faculty widely.
