APRIL 14, 2014
V. REPORT OF THE CHAIR ELECT.
Chair Elect William Beckner (professor, mathematics) announced that the annual meeting with Texas A&M had tentatively been scheduled for March 2. He asked continuing Faculty Council members to submit nominations for officers, which would be elected during the special meeting on May 5. He also reminded members of the Campus Conversations hosted by Provost Fenves and added that he felt the meetings had been “very useful and it’s brought a diverse group of faculty together to share insights.” Professor Beckner announced the meeting of a special focus group for the Faculty Council on April 22 at 8:00 and quoted a note from the provost, “We feel that it’s important for Faculty Council members to participate in small group discussion to share their perspective and ideas and to inform the Provost and his team about these important directions in curriculum on the UT campus.” He informed the Council that the Shared Services Task Force had selected two pilot programs and an update would be given at the May 5th Faculty Council meeting.
