Rice Faculty Meeting - Nov. 2009

Rice is contemplating a merger with Baylor College of Medicine, in what may be the most important decision in our institution's history. When the Faculty Senate was formed, a provision was made for the full faculty to meet whenever events warrant it, upon the collection of 50 faculty signatures. Following that provision, the undersigned call on the Senate to convene the Rice faculty for a special meeting in plenary session to discuss the merger proposal, to hear a report from the Faculty-Merger Review Committee, to air both our aspirations and our concerns, and possibly to pass resolutions.
