Dr. Alexander and the faculty, the deans, and the heads of the departments recently established a series of informal meetings to facilitate conversation and to discuss matters of interest to the faculty. Dr. Brockway reported on brown bag lunches hosted by the President with faculty. Dr. Sandi Flynn of the College of Education spoke about what was going on and they both were very positive about the appraisals T of the resulting benefits. Dr. Flynn spoke of a College of Science Focus Group which initially was attended by sixteen; later when ` Dr. Alexander attended in response to invitation, there were some 42 members present and apparently those interchanges went well. The Focus Groups are going to continue in that joint effort between the President, faculty, deans, and department heads to remain in constant and informal communication to deal with current issues. The Committee had a report from the Faculty Senate through Dr. Ann Landini and Dr. Bill Call. They spoke about frequent areas of comments with regard to communication, academic spending, quality of academic programs, and shared governance. Interim Provost Brockway responded to these at some length, in detail, and was careful in undertaking to respond at the moment to those matters and talking in ways that the administration is eager to cooperate in dealing with those.
