Faculty Senate Meeting September 6, 2017

CoBE Conference Room

Members Present: Terry Jalbert, Jerry Calton, Kelly Burke, Keisuke Nakao, Emmeline de Pillis, Gene Johnson, Tom Dewitt, Kim Furumo

The Faculty Senate meeting began after a short meeting with Interim Dean Tam Vu in which she discussed budget issues at the University. The VC for Academic Affairs will have to hold back a portion of CoBE’s budget, which will make it difficult to recruit for the Assistant Professor of Accounting position and the Dean positions. Dr. Vu concluded her meeting and left the room before the Faculty Senate meeting began.

After discussion, the following motion was made by Gene Johnson and seconded by Emmeline de Pillis:

Motion: Suspend the search for a Dean for the College of Business and Economics.

Vote: 8 Yes, 0 No, 0 Abstain
