UFC Meeting Minutes
Will advise the President that silence on the CoB deanship issue is not good.
Agreed that an ad hoc committee is needed to make recommendations regarding the representation of NTT faculty in the Senate. Relaxing the rules so that a department can choose to have an NTT faculty member as senator is regarded as a positive option.
Future meeting topics: The Greek System. Should have back-to-back updates from the CJC and Presidential task force on free speech. The effectiveness of the online reporting systems that are in place.
