Update for February 27, 2012

We want to update you on the academic program announcement process. The two meetings scheduled for this afternoon have concluded.

The general counsel for the Board of Regents, State of Iowa, and UNI Provost Gloria Gibson, along with the associate provost for faculty affairs, met with the leadership of UNI-United Faculty early this afternoon. In addition, Provost Gibson, the associate provosts, and the college deans met late this afternoon with the Faculty Senate in executive session for consultation on the preliminary list of program changes.

During the meeting with United Faculty, the administrative team agreed another meeting should be held this week to continue discussion about program-area definition. These discussions are critical to the final determination of academic-program actions.  

We will continue to update you as these discussions progress.
