RU Faculty Senate Meeting 4/14

April 14, 2011

I am currently sitting in on a Faculty Senate meeting at RU in the Heth Hall Room 014. There are a total of 37 in attendence including the director and provost who are running the meeting. First few minutes include the discussion of “old business,” basically a quick review of what was covered in the last faculty senate meeting. Members represent different departments of the university. Accoring to Kay Jordan, the meeting had a record number of topics on today’s agenda. The main reason I wanted to attend todays meeting will be item number five on the agenda list. This topic is about the pay and benefits of Adjunct instructors. There has not been a raise in pay for those instructors in Radford’s recent history. Most faculty agree that these “professors-in-training” put in as many hours if not more of preparation and in-classroom teaching. Unfortunately there was an extention passed after unimous vote to discuss the items not presented in this meeting in the next session. Meet adjourned at 4:48pm.
