Mr. Terry Bunn
The Faculty Senate, in its meeting today, voted to relay to the UWA Board of Trustees its appreciation for the significant progress made under the current administration. We are particularly appreciative of the fund raising initiatives in technology, which greatly enhance the faculty's ability to meet its responsibilities of teaching, research, and service. We believe that these advances are critical to the University in maintaining its accreditation in the College of Education, College of Business, and Division of Nursing, as well as the University.
We also want to express our appreciation to the Board in its support of the Technology 2000 campaign. Furthermore, we look forward to working with the administration in bringing about the best years yet for UWA. Please let us know of anything we can do to assist in furthering the mission and stability of the University.
R.T. Floyd, Ed.D, ATC
