Administrative evaluations issue on hold until fall

A resolution that calls for the faculty to evaluate University administrators has been put on hold, following a decision by the Senate Advisory Committee on University Affairs (SACUA) to suspend further action on the matter for the time being.

SACUA passed a resolution April 26 recommending that the University Senate and the Senate Assembly revisit the matter in its entirety in the fall. The University Senate passed the original resolution in March, but the various steps needed for implementation, such as the formation of a committee structure, required action by the Senate Assembly.

The Senate Assembly was unable to act on the matter because its April 19 meeting lacked a quorum, and SACUA declined to take action in the absence of a vote by the Assembly.

Outgoing SACUA chair Dr. Charles Koopmann Jr. and incoming chair Stan Berent sent an e-mail to members of the University Senate April 29 to inform them of the resolution.
