Welcome to the new blog of the Academic Senate at California State University, Monterey Bay. This blog is an experiment in improving communications from the Academic Senate to CSUMB faculty and other interested parties. The leadership of the Academic Senate receives a lot of information at both the campus and system level. Much more information than can be covered during Senate meetings or would be relevant enough to send to all faculty. This blog is meant to fill this gap.
Official communications of CSUMB’s Academic Senate will still be posted on the Academic Senate’s campus website or from the Senate’s official email account, firstname.lastname@example.org. This blog should not be taken as the position or as reflecting the views of the Faculty at CSUMB.
Blog posts will include campus and system-wide news and announcements, written reports and presentations received by the Senate on behalf of the Faculty, or notices of events. This blog will also be used as a way to provide context for Senate business and initiatives.
At this point in time, this blog is not meant to be a two-way communications tool. Comments, concerns, or questions should still be presented at Senate meetings, to a senate representative, to ASEC, or to the Chair of the Academic Senate.
Michael B. Scott
Chair, Academic Senate, 2017-19
