Here are the questions for the  furlough poll.

1.  The system-wide Senate has proposed that six of our required faculty furlough days be taken from the regular instructional calendar for the University during the 2009-10 academic year.  Do you support this proposal?

__ Yes           ___ No                        ___Don't Know/No Opinion

2.  The UCR Executive Council is considering creation of a highly visible initiative to be called something like:  'UCR Faculty Teach on Our Own Time'.  The initiative would involve voluntarily teaching all or most of our classes during our instructional days in a furlough period.  The purpose would be to make legislature policy makers and the public fully aware of our commitment to our students.  Would you support this initiative? [See the Executive Council Statement for more details].
