The faculty senate

Associate Professor Neal Lerner has been elected to serve on the Senate Agenda Committee by the Faculty Senate.

Carmen Sceppa, pro­fessor and chair of the Depart­ment of Health Ser­vices, was re-​​elected chair of the Senate Agenda Com­mittee by the Fac­ulty Senate on Wednesday at the first offi­cial meeting of the 2016–17 session.

Sceppa, who ran unop­posed, was elected to her second term as chair. The Senate Agenda Committee’s many respon­si­bil­i­ties include arranging meeting agendas, sub­mit­ting standing com­mittee assign­ments, and main­taining an open channel of com­mu­ni­ca­tion between fac­ulty and uni­ver­sity administration.

Four other sen­a­tors were elected to serve on the Senate Agenda Com­mittee as well: Louis Kruger, asso­ciate pro­fessor in the the Bouvé Col­lege of Health Sci­ences; Tim­othy Bick­more, asso­ciate pro­fessor in the Col­lege of Com­puter and Infor­ma­tion Sci­ence; Neal Lerner, asso­ciate pro­fessor in the Col­lege of Social Sci­ences and Human­i­ties; and Antonio Ocampo-​​Guzman, asso­ciate pro­fessor in the Col­lege of Arts, Media and Design.
