University Rank and Tenure Committee Issue
The question of the number of
representatives on the University Rank and Tenure Committee, which was
raised by the Stillman School of Business faculty, has been resolved for
this year. There will be one representative from the Business School (The
College of Education and Human Services agreed to a similar last year) in
order to maintain an uneven number of members for voting purposes. The
Faculty Guide Committee is working on other options, including the
possible addition of representatives from the Whitehead School Diplomacy
and the School of Graduate Medical Education.

to serve on the university's Charter Day Committee, headed by Vivienne
