Senate Meeting Synopsis

Check out the Cornell Sun’s coverage of the meeting.

Barb Knuth talked about the work of the Admissions and Financial Aid Working Group. Risa Lieberwitz presented a resolution on academic freedom. Motivated by the Mc Bride case, Richard Bensel presented a resolution that would make it possible to have JA-hearings open to the public if the accused so wishes. It was suggested by the Chair of the University Hearing Board that the resolution is unnecessary. Paul Streeter explained how and why certain allocation formulas that are part of the budgeting process are “frozen”  on 2014 data. That being so, there is neither an incentive or disincentive to teach students outside of your college. However, the budget is to be unfrozen in the near future and we have to understand the ramifications  of that.
