Tuesday Lunch Bunch
Join us, Betsy Price and other faculty, at the Faculty Study for an informal brown bag lunch and discussion every Tuesday around 11:30 to 1 p.m. This is not a formal event; just a time for faculty to get together and discuss current issues in higher education here at UTB and across the nation. We might even be asked to leave if we get too noisy!
What’s news in higher education?
Nationwide higher education is reeling from reduced state and federal funding. States are cutting out the fluff where ever they can. What is California’s answer? Close the Coordinating Board! This step will realize a savings of almost 1 million a year.
Watch this web page and join us as we talk about what other institutions of higher education have been up to. Each week we will pick an equally fun topic that is in the news. Bring your favorite article from Inside Higher Education , The Chronicle of Higher Education and Academic Impressions
The Faculty Study is in the Calvary Building between the Bookstore and SET-B. For additional information contact Betsy.Price@utb.edu or 956-882-7334.
Spring 2012 Tuesday Lunch Bunch will start on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 with its last session on Tuesday, May 22, 2012.
About the Faculty Study
The Faculty Study facility is sponsored by the Academic Senate as a place for faculty to meet, relax, and spend some quality time in a faculty only atmosphere. Faculty are invited to use the Study at any time as a meeting place, reading room, and even enjoy the big screen television.
Organized groups and specialized activities must reserve space through the Faculty Senate Officers. For more information about the faculty study, contact the Academic Senate.
