Faculty Senate Discusses Alcohol, SRTEs

The University Faculty Senate met yesterday for the third time this year. Among the main topics of discussion were excessive student drinking (I’m sensing a pattern here) and the lovely Student Ratings of Teaching Effectiveness.

The Daily Collegian reported on Vice President for Student Affairs Damon Sims’ presentation on alcohol to the Senate:

“Few topics we deal with in higher education are more sobering than alcohol abuse,” Sims said. By the beginning of November, there were 275 alcohol-related visits to Mt. Nittany Medical Center and 699 referrals to the BASICS program.

The UFS draws a lot of water around here, so definitely watch what kind of resolutions they pass; chances are that they will have a sizeable effect on you.
