Dear Colleagues,

Recently the Board of Trustees and University administration reviewed and posted an updated Faculty Workload Policy that was created as part of a systematic review of University policies.

In light of the many thoughtful and constructive comments we have received to date, I have recommended to the Board of Trustees that we postpone a decision regarding the policy until the September board meeting. This decision will allow additional time for comment and consideration. The Board accepted my recommendation at today's board meeting.

I would like to thank faculty members for their feedback during the 30-day comment period. The current period will remain open until two weeks before the September board meeting. We anticipate that continued discussion will produce a policy that appropriately balances faculty workload assignments and continues to strengthen the University's commitment to academic excellence.
