University statements

November 28, 2018

To the campus community,

We have held three open meetings with faculty and staff over the past two weeks. During those meetings, and from emails and conversations with deans and campus governance leaders, we have been answering questions about the financial challenges we are facing. To distribute those questions and answers, we have created an FAQ page.

We hope these are helpful and address many of your questions. We plan to update these FAQs as we receive and answer additional questions. An important clarification to the previous memorandum is that the exemption of TAs and adjuncts includes all graduate and undergraduate assistant appointments (RPAs, GAs, TAs and UG SAs). Renewal of currently employed lecturers does not require a request for an exception. However, we expect deans to continue to use discretion in authorizing renewals because of budget uncertainty for 2019-20.
