Dear colleagues--

Thanks to all who turned out for last Thursday's successful and stimulating "State of the FAS" event. I write now to alert you to another important meeting scheduled for this Thursday, May 5, 4-6 p.m., in Davies Auditorium (Becton Center, 15 Prospect Street). At the Senate's request, and with the cooperation and support of the Yale College Dean's office, President Peter Salovey will meet with faculty to discuss the recent college naming decisions and their implications for the campus community.

The discussion will take place as part of the regularly scheduled Yale College faculty meeting. The first part of the meeting will focus on Yale College business, including a proposal for revisions to the course evaluation system. That proposal recommends greater quantification and comparison of teaching evaluations both within and across disciplines, among other suggested changes. The discussion with President Salovey will take place during the second part of the meeting.

Please join your fellow Yale College faculty for these important conversations. 

Beverly Gage
Chair, FAS Senate
