I just want you all to know that I have heard from staff members who support our position but are afraid to go public for fear of losing their jobs. Faculty with tenure like myself, thankfully, don't have to worry about that. See you on the quad later today.

Many alumni have been reaching out to Trustees these past few days and who knows, perhaps Trustees will find their way to this site! So I would like to remind everyone of the following: "In all cases unprovided for by the Charter, Constitution or Ordinances, the Board of Trustees shall have the power to take such action as will, in its judgement, best promote the welfare of the University." (Constitution of the University, Article III, Section 1.) "Special meetings of the Board of Trustees shall be called by the Chancellor upon the written request of twenty-five members of the Board, by the Chancellor upon written request from the University Senate, or by the Chancellor of his own volition." (Charter of the University, Article XIII.) "Forty-four members of the Board of Trustees shall constitute a quorum." (Constitution Article II, Section 3.)
