|| Questions to the President.
From Gerard Béhague (music):
|| The news that the State Legislature has been or is
considering abolishing out-of-state tuition waivers is
alarming as a large percentage of the graduate student
body on this campus comes from out of state. Would you
please give us an update on this issue and comment on
what the University can do, should such an unfortunate
initiative be implemented?
|| The severe budget reductions for summer 2003 instructional
activity are being justified as a way to augment TA and
AI budgets in 2003-04 and thus maintain the current levels
of TA/AI funding for 2003-04. In tight budgetary situations,
shouldn’t all levels of University operation be
considered in sharing the reductions? Why target the
teaching faculty alone and not administrative and professional
personnel as well? Finally, wouldn’t it be appropriate
in times such as these to scrutinize what actually constitutes
faculty reasonable teaching loads (not only minimum loads)
so that courses or sections of courses do not have to
be cancelled or taught by AIs?
