The Ways and Means subcommittee meeting is scheduled for 8:30 AM, Salem, Thursday the 23rd. One last chance to let your legislators know how you feel about this power grab.
Whoops, the video of President Kyr and Peter Keyes, and the resolution below, are from November 2011, at the meeting of the Statutory Faculty in Mac Court, protesting the Lariviere firing.
I believed I was endorsing legislation for a board that would including voting faculty and that would put the UO constitution on a firm legal footing.
Now the legislation has been written by President Gottfredson, Randy Geller, and their unknown advisers and lobbyists. There’s been little to no faculty input. Unless you count Gottfredson’s “asked and answered” fiasco on Tuesday.
The Oregon legislature will probably vote on this within weeks. Does the faculty support it in its current form, which includes no voting faculty members, and no guarantees for shared governance? Who knows – we’ve never been asked.
