As we wrap up Spring Semester 2020, I sincerely hope that you and yours remain well. 

This week, Faculty Vice President Brian Boyd and I began formal discussions with the upper administrative team as well as the AAUP Executive Committee on the University’s financial situation and ways forward. Brian and I will continue to regularly work with the Senate Executive Committee1 as well as the Faculty Budget Priority Committee2 for guidance in these discussions. Please reach out to your college representative on either of these committees, or directly to Brian or me, to share your ideas. We will continue to update you to the best of our ability. 

Just a brief reminder about summer classes, including student payment deadlines and refund dates.

It takes place

Take care, stay healthy, and keep in touch. 

Most sincerely,
