U.F. Faculty Senate Fights Back Against Budget Cuts
The University of Florida Faculty Senate had the opportunity on Thursday to collectively express their concerns with the 47 million dollars in budget cuts that go into effect on July 1st, and they not only spoke their minds, but also took some action.
More than 200 faculty senators were in attendance at the meeting, and all but four of them voted for a resolution that gives the faculty in departments that being affected the most the opportunity to suggest some alternative cuts to their college's dean.
Those suggestions must be made in the next 60 days, which is the cutoff point the Board of Trustees gave President Bernie Machen to make any changes.
