D. INFORMATION ITEMS
In an ongoing effort to improve communication lines between the faculty and administration, the Faculty Senate Executive Committee is sponsoring a Spring term small group conversation with President Ray and faculty (academic, research and professional). This conversation will be facilitated by a Faculty Senate Executive Committee member and will consist of up to 12 faculty. This is an opportunity for the President to hear what faculty are thinking and experiencing; faculty are encouraged to speak freely. If you’d like an issue clarified, or wish to confirm a rumor, this is the place to do it!
The session is May 22 from 1:00-2:30. If you wish to attend, please register online at http://oregonstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_d0au4 xElmbzvJgV.
