We’ve all read about the $550,000 being spent on the new Web-design, but what about more relevant information such as policies regarding guest speakers on campus? I’ve discovered a 20-year veteran employee within Central Michigan University who says there is “no formal written policy” and the whole process is “very informal.”
A brief history of the College of Medicine (and what it has taught us):
To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world. Isn’t this the message that we want our kids to live by? But yet we sit there and encourage them to fight bullies, because that is just the process of “growing up,” or going through a “phase”? Wrong!
On Monday night, I attended an SGA meeting that featured Central Michigan University President George Ross. I listened quietly as he spoke and fielded questions, and I was struck by a number of things.
If there were ever any doubt about campus frustration over the disregard for shared governance by this Central Michigan University administration, the overwhelming Academic Senate vote on Nov. 1 to suspend further academic action involving the proposed CMU Medical School ought to put that doubt to rest.
Letters sent out Thursday will ask for donations to benefit the children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
I am writing this letter today because I just learned that the Michigan House Committee on Insurance has begun hearing testimony on HB 4936.
I recently read the article “Faculty picket unwelcome at CMU and You Day, plans job action again if necessary.”
I must comment on the recent "Ron Paul, a man to consider" column.
Personally I feel that the House Bill 5000 that state Representative Robert Genetski, R-Saugatuck is proposing, mentioned in the Editorial of Monday issue of Central Michigan Life is unnecessary.
I am writing in reply to the open letter by Provost Shapiro that explains his perception of the negotiations between the administration and the CMU Faculty Association. I particularly appreciate that he brought a social justice focus to the issue. From my perspective, the administration has been very selective in applying the social justice principle that underlies their position and has applied it to limited criteria that suit their goals.
The Wednesday Sept. 28 Central Michigan Life headline says everything that needs to be said about the current administration/faculty contract negotiation impasse: “CMU adds nearly $50 million to unreserved funds.” As reported in this article, Central Michigan University’s unrestricted funds now equal “about $276 million.”
The editorial in Central Michigan Life on Monday asks if students are safe, given the recent revelations about former police officer Jeff Card. Card’s actions represent himself and not the entire police department here at CMU. I have lived next door to one of CMU’s police officers for almost the past five years.
I am writing today to offer my perspective on the current state of negotiations — the impasse between the university administration and the CMU Faculty Association.
In your remarks at this week’s Board of Trustees meeting you discussed the difficult state of the contract negotiations between the CMU Faculty Association (FA) and CMU’s administration. In a part of your statement you referred to comments I made at a meeting on Wednesday afternoon. You put it this way: “As a professor eloquently said at the Trustee-Faculty Liaison Committee yesterday, we cannot let this negotiation process undermine what everyone has and is working so diligently to create.” This captures some of what I said to the committee, but the overall sense is wrong. Here’s why:
It is time to be clear: the Board of Trustees must be held accountable for the mess that Central Michigan University has become.
I’m writing to the campus community to raise awareness for the Supervisory-Technicals (STs) on campus.
Dear President Ross,
As Central Michigan University prepares to commemorate its 120th anniversary, it is an appropriate time to reflect on the past, review the growth and transformation happening at present, and have the foresight to enact steps to transport the university to its highest level in the future.
I wanted to provide some additional insight to the “Muffled Media” editorial published in the August 26th edition as well as the “Misinformation” editorial on August 29, 2011. It was made apparent to me late Tuesday evening (August 23rd) in an open, frank student conversation that there were unanswered questions on a number of topics related to the August 22nd work stoppage, the filed Temporary Restraining Order on the FA, faculty contract issues, and university finances.
