Faculty Senate focusing on shared governance

2012-13 Faculty Senate OfficersThe Faculty Senate will focus on shared governance this semester as it meets Feb. 13, the first meeting of 2013.

More specific topics will be decided as the semester progresses. The Senate will continue with its new format in which it starts its monthly meetings with a discussion about current issues, allowing administration officials, such as Provost Warren Burggren, to listen in and respond.

“The feedback has been very positive, and we sense a growing level of interest and notice a higher level of participation in Senate discussions,” said Francisco Guzmán, associate professor of marketing and vice chairman. “Furthermore, we have established a constructively critical but also healthy relationship with the administration. They seem to be happy to have us bringing things to their attention.”

In the fall semester, topics included the perception of the growth of administration while UNT is under a pay freeze; equity, merit and workload; and changes made to the Toulouse Graduate School fellowships.

At the February meeting, Mark Wardell, dean of the Toulouse Graduate School, will talk about changes to the fellowships.

Faculty members are encouraged to attend the senate meetings, which are held from 2 to 4 p.m. on the second Wednesday of every month in Wooten Hall, Room 322. The senate usually does not meet in January, July and August.

This year’s senate officers are Mark Vosvick, associate professor of counseling psychology, chairman; Guzman, vice chairman; and Pam Harrell, associate professor of teacher education and administration, secretary.
