3.  Motion:

In an exchange of emails with the Chair of the Chemical Engineering Department on February 15, 2007, Dean Klewicki of the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences concluded a message with the declaration “Your argument is cause for me to question your competence, not only as a Chair, but as a rational human being.  In this matter, I have made my expectations clear.  This discussion is now concluded.”

We the Faculty Senate register our strongest disapproval of the Dean’s response to a Chair defending the interest of his department.  We find the response unacceptable.
