Kennedy: Hogan will respond to faculty concerns

Saying he wants to ease faculty tensions over enrollment management reforms, Board of Trustees Chairman Christopher Kennedy is promising' top professors that a detailed report and formal response from President Michael Hogan is on its way.

From The News-Gazette:

Hogan's report is expected within the next month and will be shared with the University Senates Conference, a group made up of faculty leaders from the UI's three campuses, Kennedy said in a letter Monday to scores of faculty who wrote to trustees in January with their concerns about enrollment management.

In recent months, faculty have raised a number of questions about possible reforms for how the UI recruits, admits and offers financial aid to students on all of its campuses.

"In the meantime, in order to relieve a little tension, I should make it clear, as the president has said, that all admissions decisions and the establishment of standards will be made at the college or unit level as they are today," Kennedy wrote.
