UC ingot   President Gregory H. Williams will present his first State of the University Address, during the Fall 2010 All-University Faculty Meeting. The event will take place from 3 to 5 p.m., on Wednesday, October 27, 2010, in the Great Hall at Tangeman University Center. The entire campus community is invited to attend. President Williams’ address, at approximately 3:20 p.m., will lead off an interactive segment of the meeting, resting on a faculty-led workshop with small-group, roundtable discussions focused on the role of faculty in the UC2019 strategic plan’s operational principles and core values. During the workshop portion of the meeting, each table will have a “facilitator/recorder” to collect input, which will then be provided as a component of Provost Santa Ono’s Academic Master Plan phase 1 working group effort.
At 5 p.m., the meeting will close with a reception that will then lead to the inaugural Faculty/Staff Art Show Auction in support of the endowment for the Faculty Award for Exemplary Contributions in Service. The full agenda of the All-University Faculty meeting is as follows:
  • Approval of modified agenda of order of business
  • Approval of the Minutes of the May 2010 All-University Faculty Meeting
  • Necrology
  • New Business
  • Proposed University Faculty Bylaw Changes due to Semester Conversion
  • Nominations for Grievance Committee expansion

  • Accelerating Our Transformation Workshop (Facilitator, Richard J. Harknett, Chair of the University Faculty)
  • New Business from the Floor 
  • Adjournment
In order to maximize the opportunity to have substantive discussion, those attending the meeting are asked to review the website:  Faculty Chair Richard Harknett will distribute preliminary structured questions to consider prior to the meeting.
The fall All-University Faculty Meeting is held in accordance with University By-law 3361:50-3-02.
