Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the new academic year! The Faculty Council began 2013-14 by receiving 1084 responses to an online governance survey—modified from an Association of American University Professors survey—circulated to all faculty in early fall. To me, this 33 percent response rate indicates the growing interest in shared governance on our campus. We will be reporting on the results next month. Beginning with that momentum, I hope this year for the Faculty Council will be characterized by open communication, transparency, and trust between the council and the general faculty. In that spirit, we have made some recent changes to the council website, facultycouncil.emory.edu, where you can now find minutes for the past year’s meetings (use your Emory ID/password to login to the pages). Please also use the “Join the Conversation” links throughout this publication to comment on the articles through the Council Concerns blog. We welcome your input, feedback, and ideas. Please do contact me at dhoury [at] emory [dot] edu.
