Faculty Senate to hear budget cuts, library changes - Stephanie Markham, Daily Eastern

Grant Sterling, the chair of Faculty Senate, said members would likely have questions about why such a drastic change was implemented, and why it was implemented without warning the departments. He said the Tuition Recovery Model funds are critical parts to some academic programs, and coupled with the existing university-wide budget cuts, the departments are struggling. The Tuition Recovery Model Policies and Procedures was revised and signed by Paul McCann, the interim vice president for business affairs, on Nov. 21. Sterling said discussion on the elimination of the John Wiley periodicals would likely consist of similar questions on why such a decision was made and without consultation with faculty or the Faculty Senate. http://www.dailyeasternnews.com/2014/12/01/faculty-senate-to-hear-budget-cuts-library-changes/
