Faculty will meet mid-day next year

By Matthew Stone

Professors will soon have their monthly meetings at a different time of day, they decided Wednesday afternoon. Faculty members voted unanimously to meet one Tuesday a month at 11:40 a.m. beginning next school year. They currently meet the second Wednesday of each month at 4:40 p.m.The change in meeting time is an effort to make the monthly meetings more convenient for professors who normally have family responsibilities that conflict with the current meeting times, according to Psychology professor Kendrick Brown, whose committee, the Educational Policy and Governance Committee, proposed the change.

A pending change in class schedule on Tuesdays and Thursdays will allow the faculty to meet between 11:40 a.m. and 1:10 p.m. Students can continue to attend these meetings.
