You say you want a reSolution...
The University Senate can pass resolutions. "These resolutions express the sense of the Senate/Assembly and do not require formal action by the Administration or Board of Regents." (see http://www1.umn.edu/usenate/usen/resolutions.html). The nonbinding character of resolutions exposes the fiction of "faculty governance." But resolutions also offer an opportunity. They are a means for faculty and students to express our dissatisfaction with the Administration. If the Administration ignores resolutions that are supported by faculty and students, then we score PR points and expose the Administration for governing without our consent. If you could propose a resolution, what would it be?
