MINUTES OF THE REGULAR FACULTY COUNCIL MEETING OF
April 23, 2012

IV.
REPORT OF THE CHAIR.

Chair Friedman noted that a copy of the letter sent to UT System Chancellor Francisco G. Cigarroa from the UT Austin Faculty Advisory Committee on Budgets and the Faculty Council Executive Committee (FCEC) members (D 9659) was distributed to Council members when they entered the meeting. In the letter, the chairs of the two committees endorsed the recommendations UT Austin had submitted to the Board of Regents requesting needed tuition increases and urged the chancellor to support the recommendations and encourage their implementation. He verified that the Office of the General Faculty and Faculty Council had not yet received a response to the letter. In addition, he reminded Council members the decision regarding tuition had been delayed until the May meeting of the Board of Regents.
