UNH FACULTY SENATE
MOTION # X1-M5
Disapproval of the Dean’s Response
1. Motion presenter: Dale Barkey
2. Date of Faculty Senate discussion: 4/30/07
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.
