  6. Constituents’ Concerns
  1. A memo regarding increased work demand on faculty during COVID 19 was sent to WSU leadership to outline concerns and propose changes to be instituted in some policies.  The memo is on the Faculty Senate website blog post page.  A concern was raised that football injuries identified as traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) does not align with higher education goals to enhance cognitive ability of our students and that this injury can be a lifelong disability.  Four requests were made: 1) Put all employees associated with the intercollegiate football program on indefinite furlough. 2) Start the process of removing WSU intercollegiate football from the WSU athletic program. 3) Continue to pay scholarships to the football players promised such until they graduate, but not initiate any new football scholarships. 4) Request the WSU Faculty Senate develop position statements related to the incompatibilities of football with any institution of higher education.  The full statement is on the Faculty Senate Blog page.
  2. The proposed Executive Policy 2 defines distribution on how Facilities and Administration (F&A) funding from grants and contracts is distributed at WSU. Faculty were urged to read and provide input, either on the blog post or email D. Turnbull directly.
  3. A request was made to G. Crouch to keep faculty senate informed on important matters particularly when they consider budgets.   It was noted that the meetings are recorded and are available via YouTube, but that a summary of important items could be provided and posted on the Senate Blog post page.
