Regent Emerita Velma Montoya raises questions about changes in the ability of individual regents to put items on the agenda, disciplinary procedures for regents, problems with the proposal for simultaneous committee sessions, and other matters.
She notes that the upcoming Regents meeting next week, at which these proposals are to be considered, is taking place in summer when faculty are generally away. It's doubtful that most faculty are even aware of the proposed governance changes. She calls for a "time out" to allow more consideration. Op ed at:
