ALBANY, N.Y. (Oct. 31, 2017) – The University Senate is hosting the annual Fall Faculty Meeting, set for Wednesday.

The event is to take place from 1-3 p.m. in the Campus Center Ballroom, with President Havidán Rodríguez scheduled to deliver the Fall Faculty Address.

All members of the University, including teaching and professional faculty, staff and students are encouraged to attend. The event is meant to serve as a forum to address issues, ask questions and share information, according to Karin Reinhold, chair of the University Senate.

“There are very few opportunities where the entire University has the chance to come together,” she said.

The meeting will also be President Rodríguez’s first faculty address since taking office this past September. The address is part of his “listening tour,” a series of visits to each of UAlbany’s nine schools and colleges across its three campuses, as well as to many administrative units.

“The president has met with different sectors within UAlbany, but this is a forum where he can address the community as a whole,” Reinhold said. “He’s interested in knowing where we are, and what do we want.”

A reception will immediately follow the meeting. The agenda, minutes from the Spring 2017 Faculty Meeting and the annual report from the last Senate Chair will be made available on the University Senate’s website.
