March 18, 2022  / by: Anna Carlin 

The Faculty Senate meeting on March 25, 2022 will have a full agenda. I wanted to remind you to engage your colleagues and constituents in discussion about the upcoming action items on the agenda; especially the recommendations regarding making some changes to the SPoI and making some results accessible to the public.

Senators, here is a refresher on what you should be getting feedback on now:

SPoI Recommendations – we will take a vote to approve/affirm or send back to committee

Corrected documents for review-

02.23.2022 FAT Recommendations to Senate re: SPOI

03.04.22 SPOI Slides PDF verson

Main points to consider:

  • Removing some questions from SPoI  instrument as indicated by results of faculty survey
  • Adding a statement to the instrument introduction calling attention to bias in teaching evaluations
  • Method for making results public (searchable website, document held in library, public records request)
