The regular meeting of the faculty of the Department of Mathematics was held in C-36 Padelford Hall at 3:30 PM, March 6, 2018. Ron Irving, Chair, presided at the meeting. Rose Choi was recording secretary.
Professor Morrow will need several more volunteers for the upcoming Mathday on March 19th .
Professor Lieblich relayed that 34% of the legislative fund-split went towards faculty raises; whereas, other departments received 50%. An adjustment to the state budget has been made to increase the raise allocation to 50% in order to match other departments. Additionally, direct admissions have gone into effect at Computer Science & Engineering with Math to follow in 2020. Finally, a Class A Legislation was proposed to amend the UW Faculty Code for Voting Guidelines to allow Senior and Principal Lecturers and Senior Artists-in-Residence to have voting privileges at 50% or greater effort and to be included as retired faculty during quarters that they work part-time. A Class C Resolution was proposed to install wellness rooms throughout campus. A wellness room is a private space that contains a sink with a water source, a plug, a sharps/biohazard waste box, a small refrigerator, and a chair that can be utilized for breast pumping/feeding and/or medical interventions (injections and/or other medication), and the space must be serviced/cleaned regularly.
