Vice President International and Student Affairs  

 
QUESTION SYNOPSIS-I:  
Recently while strolling around campus, I noticed one of our police officers rolling around on an expensive Segway. Two nearby students commented "What's wrong with a bike?" So I refer the question to you Mr. President, in this era of tight budgets, pay cuts, green-house gases, and an obesity epidemic, what's wrong with a bike?

QUESTION SYNOPSIS-II:
The spaces in Lot 9 closed for construction early in the summer. Campus Update announced that the construction zone would be reduced in size before the start of the fall semester returning some number of designated spaces to Lot 9. This does not appear to have happened. An inquiry to Parking Services yielded the response that the designated spaces lost to the Lot 9 construction have not been redistributed elsewhere around campus. Doesn't this mean that those who purchased designated permits face a higher ratio of permits to spaces than announced when we initially purchased our permits?

QUESTION SYNOPSIS:  

Six written items were submitted by a single questioner from the floor during the Question Period. Three items included specific questions, while three items were statements that did not contain specific questions. Those items that were in question format are listed below. The three statements that did not include a question are not included.

1. Decorum and civility: I believe that civil discourse is our ability to have conversation about topics about which we disagree, and our ability to listen to each other's perspectives. Should we evaluate the way the union conducts business on our behalf on our campus? I believe it is our responsibility to insure that we are represented in a manner consistent with the way we would represent ourselves.

2. Brooks College of Health: I am concerned about some of the activities that occurred during the summer that involved union representation activities within  my college. While I am uninformed about the nature of the activities, I am aware of the aftermath. Members of our College are concerned; some are angry;  some feel that their voices were not heard. Did the union follow due process?

3. The union leadership: This week I learned that only two union representatives participated in contract negotiations with the university. Is this consistent with best practice?
