University Senate President Report: Hossein Saiedian
Faculty Senate President Report: Rémy Lequesne
There was a meeting with the Provost last week. Some of the concerns raised:
AP scores, they are reviewed every five years. Two or more KBOR schools may request a review of the current score. The KBOR English chairs voted unanimously to raise the score from 3 to 4. The Council of chief academic officers, from KBOR, sited accessibility concerns in the change of the score. This is being reviewed.
The KBOR is working towards giving raises next year. The KBOR requires some type of merit to be included. We are advocating that if they are going to implement a raise halfway through the year, it should come with a bonus, since the legislature appropriate funds at the start of the fiscal year.
Chancellor approved teaching workload policy.
The Director of the Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity is putting together an advisory and action group. They would like a faculty member.
Syrett agreed to serve on the group.
