Administration agrees to work with Senate on new COI/C policy

4/26/2018: As announced by Senate Pres Sinclair yesterday. I have no idea why it took the administration so long to realize that they had to do this.

4/19/2018: UO administrators waste an hour of Senate Exec time trying to explain why they still can’t decide if they need to involve the Senate in new COI/C policy

This was the saddest presentation I’ve ever heard from Johnson Hall employees, and I’ve heard a lot.

It took Senate Pres Chris Sinclair 5 seconds to give administrators Melanie Muenzer and Cass Moseley the correct answer:

Yes. Why didn’t you start talking to us 5 months ago?

But apparently this debate is still raging on in the bowels of Johnson Hall tonight, 2 weeks after the Senate first got a bootleg copy of this proposal from the union, and 9 years after our administration last brought this policy question to the Senate.

    Policy development may go more smoothly if Senate is in the loop early, but I don’t see that the Senate must be kept informed. If a policy proposal comes from JH, can’t the Senate Exec recognize its academic relevance and bring it before the Senate for amendment as needed?

    And they talk about the ols gang that couldn’t shoot straight!

    These professional administrators, many of whom never even were academics, are exposing the corporatization of academia for what it is.
