Reactions to the May 2 Faculty Senate debate

Today, the Faculty Senate engaged in a spirited debate. While there was argument over many amendments and the resolution contained language that I do not personally embrace, we can all agree on the need for support for the university’s mission, continuing to make this a place worthy of our energy and passion.

I look forward to continuing to work with our students, faculty and staff leadership on campus, at the UW System and the Board of Regents, with state and legislative officials and the public to strengthen and expand our service to the state in the coming months and years.
