Faculty Grievance Committee
There were no formal grievances filed during the academic year, and, as a result, the committee had no formal meetings throughout the academic year.
The committee chair did receive a small number of emails from a few faculty members inquiring about potential grievances. In his view, the issues raised were not yet at the level that a formal grievance procedure was warranted; he suggested attempting to work out the difficulties with the relevant administrators, and to contact the Faculty Ombuds if that would be helpful. No further contact with this committee resulted.
During the summer of 2012, the committee was informed that the president had approved that an issue involving a tenure decision of a particular faculty member could be sent to the Faculty Grievance Committee, and so the committee expects a formal grievance to be filed early in the coming academic year.
