The UCO Faculty Senate holds meetings the second Thursday of each month. The regularly scheduled January meeting was held on Thursday, Jan. 13. Guest speakers began with Provost Charlotte Simmons that opens each of the monthly Faculty Senate meetings with updates from Academic Affairs. She was followed by a Q& A session with Art Cotton, Vice President of Advancement and President of the UCO Foundation. During his conversation with the Faculty Senate, topics such as the percentage of faculty and staff giving and Presidential Partner participation were discussed. Laura Butler, UCO Legislative Liaison, also provided an update and is expected to be a frequent guest throughout the spring semester. Several proposals were presented, but no legislation was voted on during this meeting.
