Faculty Senate materials have been updated and can be found on the Senate

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: email@example.com To unsubscribe yourself, send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org and type the following in the body of the message: signoff fsdiscussion
