The Faculty Welfare Committee’s next meeting is on Monday, November 11, according to Tamar More, physics. University provost Tom Greene will be joining attendees at this meeting, and members welcome issues from faculty.
The Faculty Welfare Committeee is the official vehicle whereby policies concerning faculty salary, fringe benefits and working conditions are to be brought to the University administration, and serves as a negotiating team to work directly with the administrative offices on areas of interest to the entire faculty. The committee assists faculty members in cases where a particular faculty member might have a problem which does not seem to be taken care of through the regular channels.
The Committee’s role in handling any matters brought to it under this consideration will be:
- To inform the faculty member of all the usual channels open to him/her
- To improve communication (if necessary, to bring the parties together for a better understanding of the situation)
- To see if correct procedures and processes are followed and that a report, when appropriate, is made to the Senate.
