Yesterday Allen Lee presented to the senators on Cases of Shared Governance from a Faculty Perspective, Compiled by Members of the Faculty Senate Committee on Academic and Professional Status. The document gives a definition for shared governance, case studies for shared governance, and suggestions for next steps.
We enjoyed a brief sendoff with Provost Bev Warren after our meeting this month. The Senate passed this resolution in support of the Provost:
Be it resolved this 1st day of April 2014 that the Faculty Senate of Virginia Commonwealth University recognizes Provost Beverly Warren for her cooperative spirit in working with the Faculty Senate and her positive leadership in the University. We thank her for her willingness to work openly with University bodies on several long standing Senate initiatives that have come to fruition with her willing assistance and administrative leadership. Be it further resolved that the Senate wishes Dr. Warren every success in her forthcoming endeavor as a university president.
Some photos from the event are below. We wish the Provost all the best in her new position as President of Kent State University in Ohio!
