This year's instance of the event known as
"The Annual Meeting of the Faculty"
will take place on Monday, September 27, at 4:10 PM, in Foellinger Auditorium (or immediately after the Senate meeting that will precede it). You will have a rather unique opportunity not only to hear from two key university and campus administrators but also to talk with them, both in a discussion period during the meeting itself and also informally afterward.
At this year's meeting President James Stukel and Chancellor Michael Aiken will each deliver remarks, after which there will be an open discussion session during which your questions and comments will be welcome. They regard this meeting as an important occasion, and intend to use it to good effect. They will give you their sense of where we stand, what we are up against, and what is to be done; and they will be interested in hearing from you, both on the matters they mention and on others.
The Annual Meeting of the Faculty can and should serve as a forum for a discussion of issues affecting all of us, to which both administrators and faculty contribute. We hope that you will join us at this year's Meeting. After its conclusion there will be a reception, sponsored by the Chancellor, at which discussion can continue informally. Do come if you can.
