I want to put in a plug for the Staff Senate. A lot of the issues that were discussed here today are the same issues we talk to senior leadership about on a regular basis. We’re accepting nominations for staff senators for our 2013-2015 term. If you’re interested in making a difference here, the Staff Senate is a really good voice for that.
Dr. Perman: Let me tell you why this is important to us. I meet every two months with the executive council for the Staff Senate in addition to meeting periodically with the entire Staff Senate. I do the same with the Faculty Senate and the student government.
The point I want to make is this: There are things that come up where I need your advice or you need to get something in front of me that I don’t know about. And apart from venues like this and the brown bag lunches we hold in the months we don’t have Q&As, another way to have the kind of dialogue we’re having here is through these shared governance mechanisms. So please heed the call for senators.
