    3. Faculty Senate Handbook Updates
      Faculty Senate materials have been updated and can be found on the Senate web site
      Since experience has shown that the majority of Senators do not use the updated materials sent to be included in the Faculty Senate Handbook, and since the web site is frequently updated, hard copies of the Handbook are no longer being sent. The web site contains information about Senators, committees, agendas, minutes, etc.

    4. Senators Discussion Listserv
      A motion was approved at the December Faculty Senate meeting to create a Senators discussion listserv. The purpose of the listserv is to provide a method for Senators to discuss issues between Senate meetings. All Senators have been subscribed to the listserv.
      The listserv can be accessed by addressing a message to: fsdiscussion@mail.orst.edu To unsubscribe yourself, send a message to: listserv@mail.orst.edu and type the following in the body of the message: signoff fsdiscussion
      NOTE: You must unsubscribe yourself from your own computer since it will unsubscribe whatever individual is assigned to the e-mail address you are sending the message from. If someone else tries to unsubscribe you, they will either unsubscribe themselves or receive an error message.
