Agitation Over Cuts at UC

Inside Higher Ed had an article yesterday about the personnel cuts happening here at UC Davis:

Also, Academic Senate chair Henry Powell sent a three page letter to Mark Yudof complaining about the lack of faculty input in cuts at UC. Here’s the concluding paragraph:

“We respectfully request that you circulate this letter to the Chancellors and senior administrators both at UCOP and on the campuses. It is essential that faculty and administrators work together to chart our shared future and the future of the University. At a time of great fiscal difficulty, when the morale of all University employees is an abiding concern, the institution of shared governance, rather than being viewed as an impediment, can be appreciated as a constructive process and as a reason for the present well-being and continued excellence of the institution that we proudly serve.”

The full letter is available as a PDF at:
