FA News: 21 July 2018

We’ve spared you a newsletter for much of this summer, but, as you may have noticed, it has not been an uneventful time for SIU. The newsletter below address five topics: enrollment, reorganization, the end of the Dunn presidency, bargaining, and the Janus case.

But first an announcement relevant to the first topic. Dan Silver, leader of our paralegal studies program and founder of the sidoingsomething.com website, is organizing a community meeting (and potluck meal):

6:00-8:30 July 24 Carbondale Township Hall (216 Monroe Street)

The meeting is designed to allow people from campus and the community the chance to share ideas about what can be done to address the enrollment crisis at SIUC. More details on the meeting can be found here, or feel free to email Dan.

Faculty alternatives

Here’s a post where I will try to link to current drafts of faculty-generated alternatives to the chancellor’s reorganizational scheme. Don’t hesitate to let me know if I’ve missed your plan, or posted an out of date alternative plan.

As I write this (4/30), I am aware of other efforts in Media, Arts and Design (a college level proposal), transportation, and engineering, but do not have documents to post.

More A9 Plans emerge

March 31 update (2): I’ve now received a copy of the plan for Psychological and Behavioral sciences: 

Program Change Plan – School of Psych and Behavior Sciences

March 31 update (1): all the school plans are being modified to have the schools “temporarily” report directly to the Provost (now to be Meera Komarraju, if confirmed by the BOT.). That is, they wouldn’t be assigned to any college, but would be free floating until the college structure is fixed.
