President Alexander to Meet with Faculty
President Alexander and the Faculty Senate Executive Committee are continuing the long-standing tradition of sponsoring small group faculty conversations (academic, research and professional faculty). Each conversation will be facilitated by a Faculty Senate Executive Committee member and will consist of up to 12 faculty. These conversations, via Zoom, provide President Alexander with an opportunity to receive candid feedback from faculty and an occasion for idea and information exchange.
