Preliminary Report on Arts and Sciences Meeting of August 24
ASC Council productively discussed the so-called Strategic Organization Committee report.
In the end Council passed a resolution opposing the SOC proposal for restructuring the College of Arts and Sciences on the grounds of the report's vagueness regarding goals and lack of any demonstrated need. Council also resolved that further restructuring plans be developed within the extant framework of meaningful self governance of the College and its faculty and students.
The resolution passed by voice vote without opposition and will be posted here verbatim as soon as a copy is available. According to discussions at the meeting, the resolution will be distributed to the President's Office, other university administrators, the Collegian and local media.
