The Senate Committee on Renewal will hold a Town Hall meeting for faculty, staff and students at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry on Monday, November 30, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. in Dental Sciences Building, Room 1002.
In June 2015, in response to concerns about its effectiveness and the lack of university community participation in decision-making processes at Western, Senate established the ad hoc Senate Committee on Renewal with the following terms of reference:
- To make recommendations that will establish more robust and transparent decision-making practices and processes at Western.
- To receive comments and recommendations from across campus and from the affiliated university colleges and to determine ways forward that are beneficial to the whole community.
- The committee is given the following specific tasks:
(a) a full review of the state of governance at Western focusing on collegial governance and the role of Senate, including a review of the constitutional documents of Senate including the by-laws and regulations, the terms of reference of all committees, and a review of the development of agendas for Senate meetings;
(b) such other matters that arise during its investigations with respect to the enumerated tasks of the committee.
The ad hoc committee invites Schulich Medicine & Dentistry faculty, staff and students to provide their input at the upcoming Town Hall meeting.
