Dear Colleagues,

Attached to this email are 4 proposed policy updates which the Faculty Senate has completed and approved.


Before submitting these policies to the regular ISUPP process of formal review including the 30 day comment period, the Senate is seeking input/suggestions from faculty during a two week preview period.

Please email any suggestions to fsenate@isu.edu no later than October 7, 2016.

We wanted to remind you about the United We Stand Picnic being hosted at the ISU Quad tomorrow. Below is a schedule of events for your information. Of particular note is the scheduled soccer mini-tournament. We have 3 players for the faculty/admin team, but would like to get that number up to about 12 or 13 players. If you are interested in playing, please confirm with Clayn Lambert (lambclay@isu.edu). Dr. Rahim has announced that the winning team will receive a helicopter tour of Pocatello as a prize, if that is an enticement.
