Quick Note to Sessionals about Negotiations

Dear Colleagues, GMUFA has posted information about the Faculty Association Negotiating Committee (FANC) at the organization’s website . As mentioned in my bio, I look “forward to listening a great deal while learning how to best represent the interests of all members in ways that will improve the pedagogical and scholarly environment at our university.” A few of you have already provided useful information and constructive criticism that I appreciate as we move forward. In other news regarding sessionals, I hope to see an announcement soon about a revision to the Arts & Science Faculty Council Bylaws that could allow for sessional representation of 10% (about 17 members) of current continuing faculty. I will be in touch as news comes my way. Meanwhile, I hope the summer is treating y’all well. Marco
