September 28, 2017
In advance of the October 31, 2017 Representative Assembly meeting, I would like to take the opportunity to remind you that all Senate members are invited to attend Representative Assembly meetings. The Chancellor or the Executive Vice Chancellor addresses the Assembly each meeting and provides updates to the faculty on current topics of interest. New graduate degree programs and modifications to Divisional Senate bylaws and regulations, which govern Senate operations and the curriculum, are presented for a vote by the Assembly. Attending Representative Assembly meetings is a great way to stay informed and to participate in the UCSD educational community.
The meetings will be held on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. in the
Garren Auditorium of the Biomedical Sciences Building (first floor), on
the following dates.
Meeting agendas are posted on the Senate’s website five instructional days before each meeting. The Senate’s website also provides information on the structure of the Senate, the work performed by Senate committees, and information on topics of interest to faculty.
Here is the link to the Senate’s website: http://senate.ucsd.edu/
