The following is an e-mail from Julius Nadas, FC4 Secretary. It is especially relevant to the ongoing elephant in the lounge conversation.
The following email was sent out by Wright College Faculty Council President Daniel Borzutzky to the Wright College Faculty. FC4 suggests that faculty at all seven colleges be pro-active and contact the local VP to find out what you have been deemed fit to teach.

From Faculty Council regarding Teaching Qualifications
Helen Rarick (Vice President of Faculty Council) and I have been talking since Friday with President Guengerich and Vice President Cordes about the new list that came out last week stating each faculty members’ ‘qualifications’ to teach courses. We have been informed that Vice President Cordes is in the process of reviewing each faculty members’ newly-designated qualifications,’ and we have been told that she will be appealing those qualifications which do not seem correct. In other words, if you are now being told that you are not qualified to teach a course that you currently teach or have taught in the past, we have been told that she will be filing appeals. With that in mind, it may be a good idea for you to speak with Vice President Cordes to find out first what it is that you have now been deemed qualified to teach; you may also want to discuss any potential appeals with her so that she can request that you be designated as ‘qualified’ to teach those courses that you are used to teaching. As this is currently taking place, we advise that you do this sooner rather than later.
Please let us know if you have questions.
[Wright College] Faculty Council President
