From Scott Hochwald— In the parking lot behind building 14,
there are some roadside pavement markers that stick out a lot on one side, and
people are tripping on them. He would like the issue addressed.
The current Academic Affairs administration has been particularly non-consultative and lacking in transparency. A graduate dean was appointed without faculty consultation. An undergraduate dean was appointed without faculty consultation. A formula for reallocation of faculty lines – justifying the removal of 18 lines from Arts and Sciences – was created and implemented without faculty consultation and without transparency. A formula for compression and inversion raises was implemented without any explanation; even if the formula was created by the union, the faculty at large had a right to know – from AA -- what the formula was before it was implemented and mass confusion and frustration ensued. There are strong rumors that UNF may create a College of Honors and a College of Nursing – and that both of these new units are borne on potential gifts to the university -- yet no faculty consultation and no transparency about these major academic changes have been forthcoming. Question: how long will we have to endure this trend? President Delaney will respond in writing.
