Monday Morning Messages: Why and Why Now?

The idea behind the Monday-Morning-Message is to create a simple venue where the faculty can put on display their interest in understanding both sides of every campus issue and emotion.

This is more important than ever given the current climate both on campus and around the country. Doing this weekly obviates the need for random crisis-driven messaging that is prone to misinterpretation.

Items for inclusion should be submitted to deanoffaculty@cornell.edu. A link must be provided that points to the document or event that you wish to publicize.  Ordinary department talks and club meetings are not of interest. Events/documents which have broad audience appeal, which speak to Faculty Senate concerns, or which help us empathize with “the other side” are of interest.

We will use the MMM’s for all the usual DoF business: university lectures, senate-related business, and reminders that relate to semester start, semester breaks, and semester wrap-up.

This form of regular communication will be discussed in the December Faculty Senate. If the consensus is that it creates more problems than it solves, then it will be discontinued.
