One thought on “Online Senate Meeting August 5

  1. Three key questions have arisen during my consultation with my faculty colleagues. I would welcome them being addressed in our Wednesday meeting:
    Re. the COVID-19 planning:
    How does the policy change announced by the President last week affect the model predictions undertaken by the Frazier group?
    How should/are the model predictions being updated due to the influx of students ahead of the university’s rollout of widespread testing AND ahead of their “behavioral compact” with the students?
    Re. the pay reduction/benefits reductions:
    Much is made of the University compliance with federal law regarding student grades being held in confidence (scanning fo faculty computers, no emailing of grades etc). Would anyone involved like to comment on/apologize for the violation of faculty and staff rights to privacy during the recent open email communication regarding pay reduction/benefits reductions?
