Welcome Back

September 5, 2019

Hi everyone,

I hope you've had a solid summer and are ready for the new school year. I'm back for my 19th year as a UCR faculty member and end of second term (and 4th year) as your Academic Senate Chair. The most significant project to be undertaken by the Senate (and thus, all of us) in the coming year will be the full review of UCR's General Education curriculum, including a transformative reflection on our breadth requirements, collective pedagogical mission, and scholarly-intellectual obligations to a student body that is fundamentally different than it was during the last such full review. I look forward to the debate, creative sharing, and critical thought that will characterize this process. I believe our work at UCR will be constructively altered by this work.

I have once again made myself available to all departments on campus if you wish to invite me to one of your regularly scheduled faculty meetings. (I never have an agenda for these vists, other than to re/introduce myself to everyone and engage in a collective conversation about whatever you wish to discuss.) My email address is dylan.rodriquez@ucr.edu and my cell phone number is 951-756-4713. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you want to talk for any reason at all.

I hope all of you will plan to attend the Fall Divisional Meeting of the Academic Senate on Tuesday, December 3, at 1:10 pm in the Genomics Auditorium (Room 1102A).

Dylan Rodriguez
Chair of the Riverside Division of the Academic Senate
