Faculty RME votes

This post should now be complete for the time being, as we anticipate that the administration will share no further school plans over the summer.

Some corrections made on 5/22 to the Marketing and Management school materials (and vote tally).

For Program Change Plans (the documents being voted on), see this post.

For FA reviews of plans, see this post


Votes are listed for-against-abstain, with the verdict afterwards for clarity. I provide a number for abstentions, including a zero, whenever that line is filled out on the relevant RME voting sheet; where no number was provided, I leave it blank.

Earth Systems and Sustainability (8-2-0)

• Geology: 8-1-0 in favor

• Geography: 4-1 in favor

Computing (12-0)

• Computing: 12-0-0 in favor

Biological sciences (13-12-1)

• Zoology: 1-12-1 against.

Zoology forwarded the following message together with their vote:

By a tally of 1 in favor, 12 opposed, and 1 abstention, the Zoology faculty voted that they could not support the proposed RME until it stipulates that (1) the College of Science will continue to exist until the proposed new College is formed, and (2) the College of Science will retain its own Dean until the new College is formed.

• Plant Biology: 8-0-0 in favor.

Plant Biology forwarded the following statement:

The faculty also wish to report that (1) they believe forming a School of Biological Sciences by merging the Departments of Microbiology, Plant Biology, and Zoology is an improvement over the existing structure, and (2) they feel strongly that the College of Science continues to persist until the College of Science and College of Agricultural Sciences can merge simultaneously.

• Microbiology: 4-0-0

This statement was forwarded to DiLalla by Kelly Bender, the chair of Microbiology:

My faculty did request that I forward along the comment that while they prefer the language in the reorganization plan of reporting to the Provost’s Office over the School of Agricultural Sciences, that they ultimately would like the School of Biological Sciences to remain in the College of Science until the college is dissolved.
