The USFA has recently been asked to endorse an open letter expressing dissatisfaction with the TransformUS process and to pass a motion of non-support for the TransformUS process because of its perceived inadequacies.
The position of the Executive is that these issues should be addressed and resolved through collegial governance via University Council and the General Academic Assembly.
The USFA strongly supports our members in making their voices heard and participating in the collegial processes related to not only TransformUS, but all aspects of university governance. Academic decisions are the responsibility of University Council and we encourage our members to make their opinions known, to become engaged in the TransformUS process, and ensure that Council members are representing their views.
The open letter appears in an article in VOX that can be accessed at the following link: http://www.usaskfaculty.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/14-01-28-Open-letter-to-the-President-of-the-University-of-Saskatchewan.pdf
