From the United Academics Web site:
United Academics United Academics is teaming up with the Faculty Senate to host a series of fora to give faculty a formal venue in which to express concerns and questions about the budget and about restructuring. This is your chance to share your perspective with your fellow faculty and with the administration (who will, in the words of Faculty Senate President Robyn Warhol-Down: “be there to listen, but not to speak.”) The Fora will be held from 4-5:30pm: on Friday Feb. 13th at the Ira Allen Chapel; on Wednesday February 18th at the Silver Maple Ballroom in the Davis Center; and on Monday February 23rd in Waterman Building’s Memorial Lounge.
