Dear Lecturers, Researchers, and Other NTT Academic Staff
We are writing to see if you are content with the representation that you have under the current campus governance structure. There are four parts to this structure:
Represents approximately 1650 tenured and tenure track faculty.
Represents approximately 5600 PhD students and the 2500 Professional Degree students.
The Student Assembly (SA)
Represents approximately 15000 undergraduates.
Represents everyone else including 6800 nonacademic staff, 1020 academic professionals (350 Instructional Staff, the 330 Research Staff, the 120 Librarians and Archivists, and the 240 Extension Staff), and 550 Post Docs.
Although nontenure-track academic title holders theoretically have a voice through the EA, that body is overwhelmingly made up of nonacademic staff. It may make more sense for this group to express themselves in other ways: possibly through the Senate or possibly through a brand new assembly. On the other hand maybe things are fine as is. We would like to learn what you think.
For a more informed view take a look at the Senate Agendas This will help you better understand how that body spends its time.
Please share you insights below. Posted comments are anonymous unless you identify yourself in the comment itself.
We look forward to hearing from you by February 1 or so.
Charlie Van Loan (Dean of Faculty)
Chris Schaffer (Associate Dean of Faculty)
