Mark Workman, Provost
Academic Affairs

 

 QUESTION SYNOPSIS-I:

“Should the Provost have the power to reject a General Education proposal - a proposal that has been painstakingly crafted by the General Education Council and the General Education Task Force, that has been reviewed by the leadership of every college, that has the documented support of every college dean, and that has been praised by the Gen Ed external program reviewer who recently visited UNF - because of his opposition and that of one other faculty member?”

Faculty Affairs Committee

 
QUESTION SYNOPSIS-II:
Comments:  “If Library personnel are able to be given the designation of emeritus, why are senior instructors also included in this proposal?  It seem as if the Library personnel are attempting to obtain benefits that are exclusionary for senior instructors who have served for longer than the five years library staff is requesting. Why are instructors not included in this plan?”

QUESTION SYNOPSIS-I: 
 “A recent widely published study indicates that 3 to 1 is the ideal ratio of faculty to administrators at a university. Data on the SUS web site indicates UNF's ratio is 2 to 1, if we include non-tenure- track faculty, and that our ratio is worse than many others in the SUS. What can UNF do to improve these numbers, operate more efficiently, and reduce the administrative bloat?”

 QUESTION SYNOPSIS-II: 
“Given the recent data on the short-term and long-term effects of concussions and sub-concussive injuries on young men playing football, why would UNF even consider creating a football program and adding to this mounting tragedy.”
