This is based on the passing of the shared governance – this is a language issue. Librarians felt they were excluded from committees except for Athletic Committee, they need to have service to the University and committees would be a great opportunity.
Change: two members of the teaching faculty and librarians with representation from different Colleges of from the Library
Don’t want librarians on all committees just want them to have the opportunity. 4 librarians – possibility of representation on this committee. Colleen – mentioned that this takes a seat away from Faculty/Staff. Karen – thus far she has discussed with EPCC and been in email correspondence. Teaching feels that they want representation and feel open to this change. Colleen – do the librarians feel a need to sit on the committee?
- reported to the Faculty Senate are committees that they want to sit on
- want to contribute to committees and the campus through representation
