The Senate received a letter from Provost Bruno on 9/22/20 for consultation on a plan in response to the requested actions from the University of Hawai’i’s Board of Regents Resolution 20-03, Proclaiming an Emergency and Directing Action by the University of Hawai’i Administration. The MFS Executive Committee responded with suggestions on a process for faculty input and a proposed timeline leading to a formal response via the Senate. Senators will soon receive communication from the SEC with a request to report on the level of faculty input happening inside each UHM college/unit.
On 10/19/2020, the SEC sent the attached communication to UHM CEO David Lassner, with cc: to Provost Bruno and BOR Chair Kudo. The memo asks for:
- Better articulation and sharing of a more unified vision of the overall planning and budgeting process
