Faculty Council Corner (A Day Late, and A Dollar Short)

Faculty Council Corner is a regular Thursday morning feature, presenting an open thread for you to bother your HWFC members with pressing questions (or for us to post the pressing questions that you have). Also, you can expect this to be the forum where we post regular updates about what is happening with Faculty Council and when.

Last Week’s Pressing Questions:

Well, I suppose that technically speaking there were none, since I didn’t get the update posted two weeks ago and there wasn’t one last week, but still, back in September there was this from Anonymous:

~How about letting us part time peeps see our “qualifications” too? And the answer is that we’re checking on the possibility. We may (hopefully) have more after next week’s meeting with the Provost (see below).

This Week’s Updates:

~Election Results: As you already know, we had a great ballot for HWFC elections this year featuring five dazzling faculty members, and, as you may have seen in your email, when the ballots were counted up, it was Jen Armendarez (Speech) and Chao Lu (Math) on top. Their three year sentence term will begin on November 8th, when we will say good bye and THANK YOU to Kamilah Sanders and Chris Sabino for their efforts over the last few years. They’ve both been delightful and effective advocates for faculty concerns, and, speaking for myself, while I’m excited to work with our new electees, I’ll definitely miss them both on the second Tuesday of the month. And we are hoping that the non-victorious will consider taking up the cause by serving for a year or a semester on FC4, since we had no nominees for those important roles. We really don’t want to be short votes on the district wide Council…

~HWFC Provost Meeting: We have one. Coming up! Next Tuesday, as a matter of fact. We’ll be building the agenda over the weekend, most likely, so if you have any suggestions, let ’em fly in the comments.

~October HWFC Meeting: There was one, it happened, a few weeks ago. And at it, we approved some courses (Street Law I and II, sponsored by Brian Nix), and had some discussion about things, things I can’t quite recollect off the top of my head as I rush to get this posted a day late…um….important things, as I recall….um….dang! I know there was talk about Ferri’s comb…also, the meeting was remarkably efficient. Anybody else?

  1. Welcome Jen and Chao!
    Thank you Chris and Kamilah!

    Can y’all ask the Provost ’bout electronic submission of mid-term grades?
