University Assembly to meet virtually April 10

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s University Assembly will hold its spring 2020 meeting virtually at 2 p.m. Friday, April 10.

Anyone who would like to view the meeting may click on the link listed on the University Assembly website. The forum will open for comments at 1:40 p.m.

The assembly will include reports from Dr. Donald Bobbitt, president of the University of Arkansas System, Faculty Senate President Amanda Nolen, Chancellor Christina Drale, Provost Ann Bain, Staff Senate President Melody Weigel, Student Government Association President Katie Zakrzewski, Cody Decker, vice chancellor of student affairs, and Jeff Harmon, associate vice chancellor for communications and marketing.

In new business, the University Assembly will vote on an amendment to the Constitution of the Assembly that allows the Faculty Senate to be reapportioned every two years, prior to Faculty Senate elections, by the Executive Committee of the Faculty Senate, based on current information as to the number of full-time faculty members in each college or school. The modification up for vote is to give the Faculty Senate Executive Committee the authority to conduct such an extra-ordinary census in the event of a reorganization of existing colleges.

The University Assembly will also hold a second vote on the addition of a dining committee to ensure the quality and availability of dining services at UA Little Rock and serve in an advisory capacity to campus dining and the Division of Student Affairs to review dining options, policies and facilities.
