Open Forum on Workload Recommendations

AAUP@KSU will hold an open forum on the recently circulated Workload Recommendations document this Thursday, Nov. 1, from 3:30pm-5pm in SO 2036. 

Per Todd’s membership announcing the forum, we hope the meeting will be a valuable place “to discuss ways for faculty to become involved in the process as this document moves to the colleges and departments.” Feel free to send advance questions/comments to Todd (tharper @ kennesaw).

Additionally, the Faculty Senate holds it monthly meeting today, Oct. 29, from 12:30pm-1:45pm in KSU Center 300. If you are able to, please attend to show support for increased faculty concerns about shared governance structures on campus.
