EC is formulating a process for examining the existing divisional structure and making recommendations for potential improvements. The main goal of the process is to investigate how recent retirements, planned hires, and other factors have impacted divisional membership, and find ways to best align current and future faculty to balance divisional memberships, reduce committee commitments where they are over-burdensome, and enhance support for the tenure process.
EC is proposing a small task force that will work with the divisions, AC, EC, and the AULs to conduct a review this Fall, and bring recommendations to the Library faculty.
Here is a link to the draft charge for the task force.
1. Who should be on the task force?
2. What is a reasonable timeline for the review process?
3. What are additional important issues for the group to consider in its review?
