Council deliberates taking on Faculty Handbook

Council chair Gray Crouse announced the beginning of “a process of really looking at the Faculty Handbook,” anticipating that the council will eventually take “joint ownership” along with other stakeholders in the document. He encouraged council members to look through the document and identify issues “you think we ought to grapple with.” He added that the transfer of the Faculty Handbook to the domain of the Faculty Council will be a gradual process, but one that will signify increasing shared responsibility for university governance with the faculty. Provost Claire Sterk added, “The Faculty Handbook in many ways really shapes what the university is about. There are some challenges here, but it’s going to lay the groundwork for what we are. It’s going to help build the university.” The current version of the handbook is available on the Office of the Provost’s website (click here).
