Faculty Senate

Eastern’s Faculty Senate wanted to know more about what is going on.  So, John Henderson, Julie Lockett, Newton Key, and I went to their regular meeting on Tuesday, September 27.  Mr. Henderson provided the general update and each of the rest of us assisted in answering questions.  Of course, there is a newspaper article about it.  Here’s the link.
