Although we've been a little quiet the past few weeks it does not mean that things on campus are. In the next few days we will be posting items concerning recent actions in the Faculty Senate about the investigation into the hiring of tenure-track faculty in Criminal Justice (see recent blogs about this) as well as presidential performance over the past year.
The blog was created by faculty concerned about matters on campus who wanted to offer another forum for dialogue between faculty members. Other interested campus constituencies, however, have always been welcome to follow and join in these discussions. If you notice there is no longer a campus newspaper (imperfect though it may have been) where some of this communication might take place--which raises a question--are students still billed for supporting a newspaper that no longer exists? We are, however, a blog (imperfect though it may be), not a newspaper.
At any rate, a couple of recent comments to a few of the blog posts have asked how they might begin another discussion thread. For those who are not administrators of the site you can only use the comment boxes. If, however, you have a blog post that you would like to see published in the main section of the blog, email us what you would like to post and we will post it for you. We want to encourage as much participation as possible--this goes for students, faculty, staff, as well as administrators. If you want anonymity, we can provide that. To post a blog send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
